What are Blockchain Books?
A blockchain book is a guide that outlines the underlying framework of this new technology. By reading one of these books, you can better understand how blockchain works and its potential implications for business and society. Here are four can’t-miss titles on the subject.
1) The Business Blockchain by William Mougayar
2) Mastering Bitcoin by Andreas Antonopoulos
3) The Age of Cryptocurrency by Paul Vigna and Michael J. Casey This sweeping history of cryptocurrency’s roots and future paints a vivid picture of both the markets’ near past–and their wild future. Written by two Wall Street Journal reporters, this indispensable resource brings readers up to speed on how bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies work, why they matter economically and politically, and what might lie ahead for them.
4) Zero to One, by Peter Thiel & Blake Masters Here’s how it works: someone has a problem, a new idea emerges and is applied. This process repeats itself over and over again. But not every step of that process is equal. In fact, some are far more important than others—ones where progress leaps forward in what Thiel calls the great secret of Silicon Valley: doing things that don’t exist yet.
