The blockchain revolution is the first attempt to bring together knowledge about the latest blockchain technology and make a forecast of its development.

Blockchain is the ingeniously simple, revolution­ary protocol that allows transactions to be simultaneously anonymous and secure by maintaining a tamperproof public ledger of value. Though it’s best known as the technology that drives bitcoin and other digital cur­rencies, it also has the potential to go far beyond currency, to record virtually everything of value to humankind, from birth and death certifi­cates to insurance claims, land titles, and even votes.

As with major paradigm shifts that preceded it, blockchain technology will create winners and losers. This book shines a light on where it can lead us in the next decade and beyond. The book tries to answer the following questions:

– What spheres will fundamentally change under the influence of blockchain, and what professions will become hopelessly obsolete?
– What are the challenges, advantages and dangers of calling blockchain a dual-use technology?
– What future awaits capitalism, in particular, companies, monopolies and corporations?
– How will decentralization of business affect their structure?
What role will the energy system and artificial intelligence play in blockchain development?
– How in the future will people use transport, travel, transfer money, listen to music and consume energy, take loans, sit on social networks, vote and control the government?
– Should you trust cryptocurrencies?

If you want to learn blockchain technology, this book is for you!
