BLOCKCHAIN REVOLUTION: UPDATED EDITION

Available in Paperback June 12, 2018 with new Preface and Afterword

There is one form of technology that will have greater impact on the world economy than self-driving cars, solar energy, or even artificial intelligence.

  Blockchain is that technology.

Blockchain is a simple protocol that bypasses intermediaries and allows for anonymous and secure transactions that are permanently recorded on a public ledger.

  Blockchain is not only for Bitcoin.

Blockchain holds the power to reshape and transform the world of business and the old order of human affairs.

  Blockchain is changing the world.

Blockchain Revolution: How the Technology Behind Bitcoin and Other Cryptocurrencies Is Changing the World,  written by Don and Alex Tapscott, will be available for purchase June 12, 2018. The Updated Paperback Edition includes a new Preface and Afterword with a combined 25,000 words of additional content. The additions cover recent blockchain developments in the realm of cryptoassets, smart contracts, ICO’s and beyond.

“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.”

Walter Isaacson, author of Steve Jobs

“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.”
