* Buy the Paperback Version of this Book and get the Kindle version for FREE!! * One reason why blockchain often emerges as an answer to many problems is that it is easy to imagine high-level use cases of blockchain technology. While a database requires a central authority to maintain and manage data, blockchain offers a decentralized approach to storage and verification of data. Big companies tend to take the lead when it comes to blockchain investments, likewise individual people have a wide variety of reasons to invest in blockchain. Some see a bright future in the crypto world - these people tend to think that cryptocurrencies are the way to go and that eventually, they'll eliminate other types of currencies in general. Again, one could think of many different reasons to learn and invest in blockchain. But when you finally decide on emptying your piggy bank and rushing to the nearest "Blockchain Trading Booth" you suddenly realize that such a thing doesn't exist. This book provides a broad overview of the essential concepts of blockchain technology. You will also learn about the decentralized peer-to-peer network, an immutable distributed ledger and the trust model that defines a blockchain. This book will enable you to know basic components of a blockchain (transaction, block, block header, and the chain) its operations (verification, validation, Business benefits of blockchain, Steps to get started with blockchain, and consensus model) underlying algorithms and many more Take your book now!!
