    This book is titled “Blockchain revolution – how the technology behind bitcoin is changing money, business and the world.” It should have been called “how the technology behind bitcoin COULD BE....”

    This book has a lot of future looking statements. It is a good description of the potential of blockchain. A lot of scenarios involve describing how something is a problem now and how it could be better. It could. But I was expecting more present day in the book. I did like the descriptions of stakeholders and potential problems.

    The problem I had with the book is that it read more like science fiction and less like a business book.

    I give this book 4 out of 10 horseshoes.
