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)
"This book presents a very intuitive and comprehensive introduction to the blockchain technology. It is useful to understand the concept and to find analogies to explain blockchain to people that are not familiar with it. The book is concisely written and well structured, so that the reader can easily follow and understand the presented concepts." (Nicolas Kube, Financial Markets and Portfolio Management, Vol. 32, 2018)
