This book offers readers a startling view of how blockchain technology will transform the financial industry in profound ways. Some of the world's top thinkers in blockchain have contributed chapters that survey the coming digital storm-how it will level the playing field, give individuals more financial power, and create greater transparency in operations.
Written for the educated financial reader, it reveals how blockchain can create a token-based incentive system that aligns the interests of participants in large-scale initiatives, as well as the rewiring of global payment networks and innovative financing methods such as initial coin offerings to fund infrastructure development. The transition for the financial industry is bound to be complicated, but it presents enormous opportunity for those who understand the storm as it's brewing.
It is the second book in the Blockchain Research Institute Enterprise Series.
"Blockchain has the potential to transform financial services in profound ways, to level playing fields, favor collaboration over competition, and enable the individual to enjoy as much agency as the corporation does today in financial matters. This book explains how. A must-read."Joseph Lubin, CEO, ConsenSys
"This book will help successful financial services leaders with a pressing need: to relentlessly push the boundaries of their tech knowledge, with imagination around its application."Dean Connor, President
