Blockchain Revolution


7 months agoSteemit3 min read

So I guess this will be the first book for my crypto/blockchain shelf in my personal future library. I still laugh a little about the way I came into possession of it. It felt so coincidental and at the same time in it was meant to be way. If there is one thing I absolutely hate, it is waiting. No matter what shape or form. Waiting in the line, waiting for a call or waiting for an appointment. Waiting is so boring. I happened to be waiting again when I decided to kill it and walk around the shopping mall.

Of course I stopped at the bookstore, with no particular book in mind just to look around at the colorful covers that sometimes can be true art masterpieces themselves. One particular shelf was marked For thinkers, it caught my curiosity right away. Books from astronauts and inspiring people such as Peter Thiel and others. And there it was Blockchain Revolution by Don Tapscott and Alex Tapscott. It made me laugh out loud. Not even five minutes later I happily walked out of the store with the book in my bag.

I am not very fast reader or have abandoned books almost completely since I discovered Steem, but I’ve decided to read this one as soon as can and as fast as I can. I will take some notes that I hope to compile in some sort of review later.

This bear market is not just pain, suffering and fud. It is time for opportunities as well. That includes learning opportunities. Maybe it will be a waste of time or maybe it will provide me with a different perspective about the underlying technology of the cryptocurrencies and how it will impact and change the world in the future. Even skimming through the five pages of acknowledgments consisting of some pretty big names I am curious to learn more about their views about the blockchain space.

According to Guardian it is “A highly readable introduction to a bamboozling but increasingly important field”. For someone like me who only now slowly discovers and tries to grasp how this shit works, it sounds extremely comforting.

All you need is a cup of hot chocolate, keep calm and learn more about the blockchain, right? ^^

Well, well yes! However, I would like to ask something of you at this part too.

Will you share your discoveries about the blockchain? Have you found something that would be a must consume about the blockchain and crypto?

It could be anything. Books, podcasts, news sites about crypto, your favorite Steemians who speak a lot about this stuff you’d recommend to follow, articles, talks from conferences etc. I would be very interested to see what turns up and check it all out and I am sure many of you would appreciate others sharing too. You could write it in the comments or dedicate a whole post for it and leave a link in comments here. That would be awesome!

We are all in this together. We come from different backgrounds and different walks of life, we have different levels of understanding this technology and yet somehow we all ended up here, on the chain. Isn’t it just beautiful?
