Blockchain ermöglicht Peer-to-Peer-Transaktionen ohne jede Zwischenstelle wie eine Bank. Die Teilnehmer bleiben anonym und dennoch sind alle Transaktionen transparent und nachvollziehbar. Somit ist jeder Vorgang fälschungssicher. Dank Blockchain muss man sein Gegenüber nicht mehr kennen und ihm vertrauen – das Vertrauen wird durch das System als Ganzes hergestellt. Und digitale Währungen wie Bitcoins sind nur ein Anwendungsgebiet der Blockchain-Revolution. In der Blockchain kann jedes wichtige Dokument gespeichert werden: Urkunden von Universitäten, Geburts- und Heiratsurkunden und vieles mehr. Die Blockchain ist ein weltweites Register für alles. In diesem Buch zeigen die Autoren, wie sie eine fantastische neue Ära in den Bereichen Finanzen, Business, Gesundheitswesen, Erziehung und darüber hinaus möglich machen wird.

BLOCKCHAIN The next step in the technological revolution is here with Blockchain! Blockchain technology is in the news more and more these days, especially as Bitcoin prices continue to climb closer and closer to $20,000 per unit. Generating plenty of news for speculative investors to obsess over is only one of its many uses, however, and it is likely going to be those who put it to use solving problems in new and creative ways that really win out once all the speculation has finished. If you want to make sure you are on the right side of the coming technological revolution, then Blockchain: A Guide to Understanding Blockchain is the book you have been waiting for. Each blockchain is a decentralized database which stores data in such a way that it allows for easy access by a wide variety of users while still offering top rate security and ease of use. It is for these reasons that many experts are already calling it the most significant new technological innovation since the creation of the internet despite the fact that less than 50 percent of the population can accurately describe what a blockchain is, and less than 10 percent interact with it on a regular basis. If that sounds like you, then you will appreciate the fact that inside you will find a breakdown of blockchain technology, along with suggestions for how to use it to improve your business, whatever it may be, a breakdown of the basics of the major cryptocurrencies on the market today and what the future might hold for this amazing technology.

Das 'Dark Net' ist eine Unterwelt. Es besteht aus den geheimsten und verschwiegensten Ecken des verschlüsselten Webs. Ab und zu gerät ein Teil dieser Unterwelt in die Schlagzeilen, beispielsweise wenn eine Plattform für Online-Drogenhandel zerschlagen wird. Abgesehen davon wissen wir jedoch so gut wie nichts darüber. Bis heute. Basierend auf umfangreichen Recherchen, exklusiven Interviews und schockierendem, authentischem Material zeigt Jamie Bartlett, wie sich völlige Anonymität auf Menschen auswirken kann, und porträtiert faszinierende, abstoßende oder auch gefährliche Subkulturen, darunter Trolle und Pädophile, Dealer und Hacker, Extremisten, Bitcoin-Programmierer und Bürgerwehren.

Move Over, Bitcoin. Ether Is the Digital Currency of the Future. "The momentum has shifted to Ethereum -- there is no doubt about that," -William Mougayar - founder of Virtual Capital Ventures The value of Ether, the cryptocurrency of the Ethereum platform, has risen an eye-popping 4,500 percent since the beginning of the year. Experts predict the value of Ethereum's virtual currency will race past Bitcoin in the coming months should the current trend continue. "There is almost nothing you can do with Bitcoin that you can't do with Ethereum." There is a reason why Ethereum has been backed by over thirty big banks, tech giants, and other organizations--including J.P. Morgan, Chase, Microsoft, and Intel , who are uniting to build business-ready versions of the software. Over the last few months, 100 plus companies have joined the nonprofit Enterprise Ethereum Alliance , including global names like Toyota, Merck and Samsung , to build tools that will make Ethereum useful in corporate settings. Whether you plan to simply invest in Ether as a currency or you want to build a revolutionary application on the Ethereum platform, it is critical to understand the role of both the currency and the larger framework. In this book we will examine Ethereum's ground breaking approach to blockchain technology for building decentralized applications, as well as why Ether will soon overtake Bitcoin in value. Find out exactly what you need to know if you're thinking about investing in Ether, a project built on the Ethereum platform, or even developing your own Ethereum-based application. In this guide you will learn: What is Ethereum? The Ethereum Blockchain The Role of Smart Contracts The Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) What are Decentralized Applications? (dApps) Consensus Algorithms: Proof-of-Work vs. Proof-of-Stake Getting Started with Ethereum Criticisms, Risks, & Challenges Concerning Ethereum The Future of Ethereum Today, Ethereum offers one of the most well-established and innovative approaches to making this technology accessible, flexible, and exciting.

This Trilogy Contains: Blockchain: The Beginners Guide to Understanding the Technology Behind Bitcoin & Cryptocurrency Bitcoin: The Beginners Guide to Making Money with Bitcoin & Blockchain Cryptocurrency Ethereum: The Definitive Guide to Investing in Ethereum & Blockchain Cryptocurrency "What the Internet did for communications, Blockchain will do for trusted transactions".- Ginni Rometty, IBM CEO Cryptocurrency and it's disruptive architecture is now heading the biggest revolution in the Finance sector for the last 100 years. There is a lot of hype surrounding Cryptocurrency, but what does this actually mean for us? What is this new technology? Why does it matter and how can we capitalize? These questions are not always answered with due diligence in the sea of headlines that deal with digital currencies. As a result, many people are left with an incomplete understanding of this transformative new technology and its massive implications for the future. The goal of these books is not to plumb the depths of mathematical wizardry, as much of the available information dealing with cryptocurrencies assumes a fairly advanced level of experience with cryptography, computer programming, financial markets, and mathematics in general, but rather to serve as an introduction to the broader architecture and conceptual background of cryptocurrency technology. We will take a practical approach, examining how Blockchain, Bitcoin & Ethereum are used in the real world. In this trilogy guide you will learn: A Brief History of Blockchain Technology Blockchain Basics: Managing Digital Transactions Profiting from Blockchain Technologies Limitations & Challenges of Blockchain How can I use Bitcoin? The difference between Bitcoin & other cryptocurrencies Choosing the Best Bitcoin Wallet Making Money & Investing With Bitcoin Common Myths, Mistakes, & Misconceptions About Bitcoin The Role of Smart Contracts The Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) Consensus Algorithms: Proof-of-Work vs. Proof-of-Stake Getting Started with Ethereum Criticisms, Risks, & Challenges Concerning Ethereum For Centuries, people have relied on third parties and corrupt Centralized Institutions like banks and Governments to serve as intermediaries when it comes to storing and transacting financial assets.
