Blockchain For Dummies 2nd Ed (Wiley)
Wednesday, 29 May 2019

Blockchain technologies are disrupting some of the world’s biggest industries and this book provides a fast way to catch up with the essentials. Written by Tiana Lawrence, who was involved in founding and analyzing blockchain solutions, it serves to help those who need to understand what a blockchain can do (and can't do). This revised edition walks you through how a blockchain securely records data across independent networks. It offers a tour of some of the world’s best-known blockchains, including those that power Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. It also provides a glance at how blockchain solutions are affecting the worlds of finance, supply chain management, insurance, and governments.
