Blockchain Unlocked will help you to understand the basic concepts of an emerging form of technology and how it will transform businesses. Part 1 covers what blockchain is and what it cannot do, despite the hype. It goes into the types and functions of various blockchains and its core concepts. Part 2 presents ten use cases to explore disruptive blockchain-enabled digital transformations across businesses and industries such as banking and finance, healthcare, insurance, energy, real estate, etc.
The book also explains the conditions necessary for businesses to design and develop their own blockchain, and the possible obstacles should you take the leap. This book is an easy-to-understand book for readers with any level of knowledge in blockchain — whether a beginner or an expert.
