Description

We are in the eye of a blockchain hurricane. The hype around blockchain technology is matched only by the innovation it inspires and the skepticism it provokes. This book from BUSINESS EXPERT PRESS 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. Technical frameworks are presented in a business context to help strategists 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.

Praise from Academics and Industry

This is a brilliant read. It is beautifully written with authenticity, clarity and conceptual elegance. Explanations are clear and engaging, making it an indispensable and accessible resource for those wishing to gain in or reinforce fundamental understanding; developmental origins are painstakingly and generously elaborated; and challenges for future developers and adopters are both appetising and pull no punches. I have previously sought to read about this topic but never yet come across such a readable, uncluttered, informative, measured and engaging exposition. Superb.

Professor Alison Shaw, Newcastle University

There is no question that Blockchain is a technology that will disrupt a number of industries, including the insurance industry. It is disruptive not only because the technology is by nature ground-breaking but also because it brings together parties that in the past would have been in competition or in some sort of conflict, for the benefit of transparency and simplification, and in fine, to provide the best possible outcome for customers. This book does an excellent job at explaining why, and how, this will be the case.
