As a bitcoin entrepreneur, Andreas has founded three bitcoin businesses and launched several community open-source projects. He often writes articles and blog posts on bitcoin, is a permanent host on Let's Talk Bitcoin and prolific public speaker at technology events. Andreas serves on the advisory boards of several bitcoin startups and serves as the Chief Security Officer of Blockchain.
When Gavin first read about Bitcoin in 2011, he was largely uninterested, focusing too much on the currency aspect rather than the technology. However, when he revisited it in early 2013, he began to realise new possibilities opening up between the fields of ITC and game theory, and the inevitable social change to which this would lead. A mutual friend made the introduction to Vitalik Buterin (Ethereum Founder) in late 2014 and Ethereum has dominated Gavin Wood's life since.Gavin coded the first functional implementation of Ethereum, devised the Solidity contract language and wrote the Yellow Paper, the first formal specification of any blockchain protocol and one of the key ways Ethereum distinguishes itself from other blockchain-based systems.Prior to Ethereum, Gavin earned a masters degree and doctorate in computer science. He consulted for Microsoft Research on technical aspects of embedded domain--specific languages, and was involved in several startups in the areas of realtime semantic extraction and presentation for music, visual meta--programming systems and automated legal text analysis.
From the Publisher
From the Preface
How to Use This Book
The book is intended to serve both as a reference manual and as a cover-to-cover exploration of Ethereum. The first two chapters offer a gentle introduction, suitable for novice users, and the examples in those chapters can be completed by anyone with a bit of technical skill. Those two chapters will give you a good grasp of the basics and allow you to use the fundamental tools of Ethereum. Chapter 3 and beyond are intended mainly for programmers and include many technical topics and programming examples.
To serve as both a reference manual and a cover-to-cover narrative about Ethereum, the book inevitably contains some duplication. Some topics, such as gas, have to be introduced early enough for the rest of the topics to make sense, but are also examined in depth in their own sections.
Finally, the book’s index allows readers to find very specific topics and the relevant sections with ease, by keyword.
This book is mostly intended for coders. If you can use a programming language, this book will teach you how smart contract blockchains work, how to use them, and how to develop smart contracts and decentralized applications with them. The first few chapters are also suitable as an in-depth introduction to Ethereum for noncoders.

Wenn man beispielsweise einen Full Node betreiben will, bekommt man hier auch alle relevanten Kenntnisse.
Wie auch schon bei Mastering Bitcoin profitieren hier Entwickler am meisten. Man muss noch kein Solidity beherrschen, aber man sollte irgendeine moderne Programmiersprache beherrschen. Wenn man jeden Schritt nachvollzieht und nicht nur das Buch liest, dann ist man am Ende des Buchs wirklich ein Experte.
Aber Vorsicht: Durcharbeiten und Lesen sind zwei verschiedene Dinge. Das Buch kostet Zeit. Aber es lohnt sich.
Wie auch schon bei meiner Rezension zu "Mastering Bitcoin" der Tipp für Leute die den Autor nicht kennen: Schaut Euch auf Youtube an, was er dort veröffentlicht hat. Man bekommt einen guten Eindruck von ihm.
Veramente una delusione che mi ha shoccato. Non mi aspettavo una tale qualità.
Lo sconsiglio vivamente!
Le guide youtube sono fatte decisamente meglio.
