COMING SOON from Business Expert Press: BLOCKCHAIN HURRICANE: Origins, applications and future of blockchain and cryptocurrency
Due for publication is Spring 2020, BLOCKCHAIN HURRICANE is a straightforward and honest overview of this brave new world.
The hype around blockchain technology is matched only by the innovation it inspires and the scepticism it provokes. This book gives business decision makers and students a clear overview of the history, current applications, and future potential of distributed ledgers and cryptocurrency. It explores strengths and weaknesses, emerging opportunities, and perceived threats. Clear explanations of the technology and its evolution and a wide range of real world case studies help strategists to understand the risks and rewards of different approaches to blockchain implementation, and the decision factors in determining whether this is a viable solution to the problem at hand.
Kate’s first book was ‘Poles Apart: Challenges for Business in the Digital Age‘ (MX Publishing, 2014) This tackles the missing digital skills and gaps in knowledge that plague micro businesses, which often result in lost business opportunities and unexpected costs when things don’t go as planned. It was well received by its audience, reaching the top five in Amazon business books on publication.
