Reviews

"The book is really what is says to be - it introduces the "Blockchain Basics" without formulas or programming. And still, does it in a serious way, which allows you to "take home" the knowledge after reading it." (vitoshacademy.com , May, 2018)

"The book could be used as a textbook or simply to help structure a presentation on blockchain. ... I think that the book achieves its objectives: to explain to a nontechnical audience what the blockchain is, how it works, and where it can be applied. It should also allow the reader to understand a lot of the hype that surrounds blockchain and to differentiate the ways in which the term is used." (Computing Reviews, October, 2017)
