"The 4th Industrial Revolution only starts after reading this book and understanding the Blockchain Revolution. "
            —Carlos Moreira, Founder, Chairman and CEO WISeKey

“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.”
            —Indra Nooyi, Chairman & CEO, PepsiCo

"Blockchain Revolution is an illuminating, critically important manifesto for the next digital age. Don Tapscott and his son Alex Tapscott lay out a carefully constructed thesis concerning the newest approach to financial transactions, one based on global participation, openness, merit, and decentralization. Indeed, the Tapscotts prove that the future of money is already here."
            —Dan Pontefract, Author of The Purpose Effect and Chief Envisioner, TELUS

"Blockchain Revolution is a brilliant mix of history, technology, and sociology that covers all aspects of the blockchain protocol. The book goes far beyond bitcoin and other crypto-currencies to consider blockchain technology as the Trust Protocol" the world has been waiting for since the invention of the internet. The rush into blockchain investments by legends such as Marc Andreessen, Blythe Masters, and the Winklevoss brothers is not about bitcoin, but is about the future of a secure title and transfer system than can apply to stocks, bonds, land, goods in transit, and any other kind of property. In time, the invention of the blockchain may prove as momentous as the invention of printing. Don and Alex Tapscott show the significance of the blockchain in a highly readable form without shortchanging the technical aspects. This is must reading for the blockchain novice and expert alike."
            —JamesRichards, Author of Currency Wars and The Death of Money

"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."
            —Alec Ross, Author, The Industries of the Future

"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."
            —Douglas Rushkoff, Author of Present Shock and Throwing Rocks at the Google Bus

“Everywhere thoughtful people are trying to understand this revolutionary technology and how it might change the world. Team Tapscott has stepped up and written the book we’ve been waiting for.”
            —Dan Schulman, CEO, Paypal

"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 how and how to capture the opportunity and avoid the dangers."
            —Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman, World Economic Forum

"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."
            —EricSpiegel, President and CEO, Siemens USA

“What a spectacular book.  Mind-blowing in its expansiveness and profundity.  It makes me think we’re at one of those times in technology, economic and social history where the sky is the limit.”
            —Steve Wozniak, Co-founder, Apple Computer andChief Scientist, Prime Data
