Blockchain is a revolutionary computer programming technology that was first proposed in 2008 with Satoshi Nakamoto’s white paper on bitcoin. However, its roots go far deeper, as Nakamoto’s white paper actually built on advances and ideas in cryptography and cybersecurity that date all the way back to the early 1990s. Today, blockchain is turning into an Internet phenomenon that is changing how we think of cybersecurity and how data can be safely managed and maintained. This book will give you a detailed, under-the-hood look at how blockchain works. The first chapter will go into detail about the model that most of the Internet is based on, the client-server model, and why it is showing signs of age. The Internet is unable to keep up with the popularity that it has spawned, and it is facing increasing challenges at keeping up with its own demand. Additionally, the centralization of the client-server model makes the information prone to tampering, manipulation, and hacks. The second chapter will look at how blockchain technology provides the answers to many of the problems created by the aging client-server model. The third chapter takes a technical look at how blockchain works, but in a way that is easy for newbies to understand. It looks carefully at what different terms mean and explains them in an easy-to-understand format. It then details how a blockchain transaction works, from beginning to end. By the time you finish listening to this chapter, you will feel confident that any information that you send over a blockchain is safe and will reach its destination in one piece. Blockchain isn’t without its problems, though. The fourth chapter will explore some of the problems that blockchain is facing as it matures and enters the world of mainstream business and finance. These problems include legal issues, environmental issues, scalability issues, and consensus issues. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mike Wood.

Blockchain is one of those technologies that only come out once in a blue moon. In other words, it is an extremely rare form of innovation, the likes of which we haven’t seen in a while and are not likely to see for some time again. It has been likened to be a second Internet. Not too bad for an application that initially came as a mere side affect of a then unknown digital currency known as Bitcoin. These are all pretty heavy and heady. Yes, I said both those words in one sentence, topics that Matthew Scott tackles for us in this audiobook, and he manages to encapsulate the basics of them all extraordinarily well. Where other books merely highlight the most simplistic use cases of blockchain, this audiobook actually lifts up the hood and gives you a direct view of the engine that allows blockchain technology to run. If you would like to really learn the ins and outs of blockchain technology, then Matthew Scott’s comprehensive guide is for you! Learn how the public ledger of the blockchain is being used in banking, medical records, smart contracts, and even as a future broker and intermediary of the oft talked about Internet of Things. These mathematically sealed blocks of data, whose first framework was dropped off by the mysterious Satoshi Nakamoto back in 2008, are on the verge of changing the world. Get this audiobook to find out how you can be at the forefront of this revolution. In this audiobook, you will learn how you can: Use the blockchain for personal data Entrust cryptography for security Eliminate double spending Utilize Ethereum And much more 1. Language: English.
