Book Description

Blockchain is an emerging technology for organizations to almost instantaneously make and verify transactions, streamlining business processes, saving money, and reducing the potential for fraud. This book covers the application of blockchain technology to the enterprise world, it describes the opportunities and challenges for adoption of DLT (Digital Ledger Technology) in a corporate environment, and specific use cases that may benefit from a decentralized and distributed trustless network. There are many books on blockchain, the new de-centralised ledger technology made famous (or infamous) by Bitcoin, Onecoin and others. But as cryptocurrencies and stock markets rise and fall with surprise volatility and the world economy emerges changed by coronavirus and the resulting economic crash, many in industry are looking again at the powerful features of blockchain and how these may help them adapt. This new book sets out the core features of blockchain and uniquely describes, in natural language and in real-life scenarios, how de-centralised ledgers may affect industries as varied as virus-tracking apps, finance, investment and healthcare.
