Cryptocurrency Revolution: Finance in the Age of Bitcoin, Blockchains & Tokens by
Call Number: HG 1710.3 .L498 2021
Publication Date: 2021
For a long time, the world of cryptocurrencies and blockchains was viewed as a niche space of little interest to mainstream business and finance sectors. With J.P. Morgan, Facebook, Walmart, and even some central banks investing in these new technologies, this has undoubtedly changed. This book explains the most important takeaways from the continued growth of digital currencies and blockchains, and explores the transformative possibilities of borderless payments and machine-to-machine transactions. Written in jargon-free and accessible language, this book examines the key value proposition of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, and how blockchains could enable banks to become more efficient. It looks at the potential impact of company-backed digital currencies (such as Facebook's Libra), and how governments and regulators around the world are reacting to new innovations.
