The Blockchain Economy - A Primer
The Blockchain Economy - A Primer
About the Book
This book is not a technical introduction to Blockchain technology; there's plenty of freely accessible material on that. Instead, this book makes the case that Blockchains will have at least as much economic impact in the 21st century as corporations in the 20th century.
The Blockchain Economy provides you different perspectives on the drastic potential of Blockchain technology to disrupt nearly every business or political system in existence today.
Some of the ideas may appear evident to you; others may not yet. But in due time, many of them will be implemented in the real world by practitioners, programmers, and Blockchain architects. Myriads of new ideas and applications of Blockchain technology will see the light of the day.
Due to the disruptive value proposition of providing permissionless, trusted, secure, and decentralized information management, these applications will create new blue oceans of opportunity, breaking out of the bloody red oceans of existing centralized financial infrastructures.
In particular, you'll learn about the economic impact of Bitcoin, decentralized finance (DeFi), non-fungible tokens (NFTs), censorship-resistance, governance, and many more key Blockchain concepts--and their impact on today's economy.
