THE DEFINITIVE BOOK ON HOW THE TECHNOLOGY BEHIND BITCOIN AND CRYPTOCURRENCY IS CHANGING THE WORLD.
'Blockchain Revolution is a highly readable introduction to a bamboozling but increasingly important field' - Guardian
Blockchain is the ingeniously simple technology that powers Bitcoin. But it is much more than that, too. It is a public ledger to which everyone has access, but which no single person controls. It allows for companies and individuals to collaborate with an unprecedented degree of trust and transparency. It is cryptographically secure, but fundamentally open. And soon it will be everywhere.
In Blockchain Revolution, Don and Alex Tapscott reveal:
· how this game-changing technology will shape the future of the world economy
· how it will improve everything from healthcare records to online voting, and from insurance claims to artist royalty payments
Brilliantly researched and highly accessible, this is the essential text on the next major paradigm shift. Read it, or be left behind.

Recenzii

What a spectacular book. Mind-blowing in its expansiveness and profundity. It makes me think we're at one of those times in technological, economic and social history where the sky is the limit
The Tapscotts have written the book, literally, on how to survive and thrive in this next wave of technology-driven disruption. Likely to become one of the iconic books of our time
Occasionally a book comes along that changes the global discourse. This is likely to be one of those books. Blockchains are at the heart of the fourth industrial revolution and the Tapscotts lucidly explain why and how to capture the opportunity and avoid dangers
A carefully researched and beautifully written book. Blockchain Revolution argues that the 'Internet of value' will transform our lives. A must-read for our disruptive times
Don and Alex brilliantly illuminate the technology that could profoundly impact the way we manage issues of trust, security and privacy for years to come
The great missing element in the Internet has been a 'trust protocol', a way of knowing that a transaction is verified and authentic. Blockchain technology could provide a foundation for that. It's a revolutionary idea and this lucid book explains why
A masterpiece. Gracefully dissects the potential of blockchain technology to take on today's most pressing global challenges
The blockchain is to trust as the Internet is to information. Like the original Internet, blockchain has potential to transform everything. Read this book and you will understand
In this extraordinary journey to the frontiers of finance, the Tapscotts shed new light on the blockchain phenomenon and make a compelling case for why we all need to better understand its power and potential
Deconstructs the promise and peril of the blockchain in a way that is at once accessible and erudite. Blockchain Revolution gives readers a privileged sneak peak at the future
If ever there was a topic for demystification, blockchain is it. Together, the Tapscotts have achieved this comprehensively and in doing so have captured the excitement, the potential and the importance of this topic to everyone
This is a book with the predictive quality of Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four and the vision of Elon Musk. Read it or become extinct
Blockchain is a radical technological wave and, as he has done so often, Tapscott is out there, now with son Alex, surfing at dawn. It's quite a ride
If you work in business or government, you need to understand the blockchain revolution. No one has written a more thoroughly researched or engaging book on this topic than Tapscott and Tapscott
An indispensable and up-to-the-minute account of how the technology underlying bitcoin could - and should - unleash the true potential of a digital economy for distributed prosperity
Technological change that used to develop over a generation now hits us in a relative blink of the eye, and no one tells this story better than the Tapscotts
Few leaders push us to look around corners the way Don Tapscott does. With Blockchain Revolution he and his son Alex teach us, challenge us and show us an entirely new way to think about the future
Blockchain Revolution is a brilliant mix of history, technology and sociology that covers all aspects of the blockchain protocol - an invention that in time may prove as momentous as the invention of printing
Blockchain Revolution serves as an atlas to the world of digital money, masterfully explaining the current landscape while simultaneously illuminating a path forward toward a more equitable, efficient and connected global financial system
Blockchain Revolution is the indispensable and definitive guide to this world-changing technology
Incredible. Really incredible. The Tapscotts' examination of the blockchain as a model for inclusion in an increasingly centralised world is both nuanced and extraordinary
Makes a powerful case for blockchain's ability to increase transparency but also ensure privacy. In the authors' words 'The Internet of Things needs a Ledger of Things'
The epicentre of trust is about to diffuse! The definitive narrative on the revolutionary possibilities of a decentralised trust system
Identifies a profound new technology movement and connects it to the deepest of human needs: trust. Thoroughly researched and provocatively written. Every serious businessperson and policy maker needs to read Blockchain Revolution
This book has had an enormous impact on the evolution of blockchain in the world
A thorough, balanced and enlightening guide to the next big thing.
The blockchain is one of the most fundamental inventions in the history of computer science. Read Blockchain Revolution to understand its profound implications.
