Recommendation

In this accessible guide, blockchain experts Don Tapscott and Alex Tapscott explain the promise behind this emerging technology. They see blockchain as a potential world-changer, although their exuberance can feel a bit farfetched. Their report shines best when it shows how the new platform affects real people – for instance, when they document an immigrant’s expensive experience sending money overseas, and contrast that process with the graft-free ease of using a blockchain alternative. The authors cheerlead for the blockchain while acknowledging its possible pitfalls, including potential threats to privacy. getAbstract recommends this lively overview to investors and policy makers seeking to learn more about a cutting-edge technology.

In this summary, you will learn

  • What the blockchain is,
  • How it could unleash new economic growth and
  • Why the blockchain will disrupt some industries and threaten privacy.

    Doesn't explain mining, hashes and other critical components of understanding the botcoon framework- but overall decent review of the book and its examples of blockchain uses
