Description
"Think Blockchain" combines both an aspirational and pragmatic overview of blockchain technology, its core capabilities, and the value they generate from a technical and business perspective. It describes various real-world examples, implementations, and approaches, with industry-specific and cross-industry use cases. Developers will benefit from this book as several of the chapters are technical in nature, some even including simple coding exercises to further crystalize topics like blocks, chains, hashing, mining, smart contracts, and tokens. Business leaders will equally benefit and are provided with a basis for understanding and evaluating how blockchain technology can transform their organization and business processes. Cuomo encourages business leaders to look over the simple coding examples. They won't bite and might better illustrate what makes blockchain tick. Business or technical, the topics covered in this book will prove valuable to just about anyone curious and ready to become a scholar of blockchain. Blockchain is changing everyday life for good.
