Blockchain Revolution: How the Technology Behind Bitcoin Is Changing Money, Business, and the World

Deemed a revolutionary shift and a leading component in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, it’s no wonder why the blockchain has become such a buzz-worthy topic. Just how revolutionary will the technology be? According to father-son duo and coauthors, Don Tapscott & Alex Tapscott, it will completely transform the way the world does business and everything in between.

As one of the world’s leading authorities on digital innovation, Don Tapscott made a name for himself with the release of Wikinomics, a pioneering novel that recognized the Internet, in its early days as the first global platform for mass collaboration. Taking on the next wave in disruption, Don Tapscott and financial analyst/ technologist, Alex Tapscott write about the profound changes we are about to see with blockchain. From expanding financial services to safeguarding personal identity information, the Tapscott’s argue that “Privacy is the foundation of free societies” and that the blockchain will ultimately set us free.

Looking beyond the currency of Bitcoin, author, Melanie Swan dares to dig a little deeper to understand the innate value of the technology. Founder of the Institute for Blockchain Studies, Swan brings her extensive knowledge to the wider public with considerations of the theoretical, philosophical and societal impact of the blockchain in her Blueprint.
