Blockchain has become the critical buzzword in the world of financial technology and transaction security — and now you can make sense of it with the help of this essential guide.
Tiana Laurence (Silicon Valley, CA) is a serial entrepreneur who has founded a number of companies in the tech space. One of those companies was Factom, a leading blockchain solutions provider. She's currently managing partner at Laurence Ventures, an investing firm focused on blockchain and IoT solutions. Tiana also writes for TechTarget.
The book could have benefited from a stricter editor. The paragraphs sometimes lack coherence and the authors stance towards block chain as being decidedly revolutionary and cutting edge could have been toned down a bit. A number of technical terms (like Proof of Work or Byzantine Generals Problem) is introduced with no or rudimentary explanations.
Furthermore the book would have gained greatly from some solid, down to earth, real life use cases of block chain technology. There is a lot of speculation of the future use of block chain and the provided examples of real life cases are not very detailed. If the author had spent more time researching a few select cases thoroughly it would have made the book much better I think. Now it seems a bit like all of the examples are a collection of written up web news and articles – and I can`t help get the feeling that this is the case. Maybe the publisher wanted to get a book out quickly, rather than going in depth?
Overall the book is a bit high flying with too much hot air. I had hoped for a more concise walk through of this new technology.
