Blockchain and Bitcoin have become household names.

BLOCKCHAIN, BITCOIN AND YOU explains the technical concepts that make up the blockchain and what they mean for the future of personal finance, as well as their role in business-relevant applications.

Scotcoin’s CEO Temple Melville lifts the complex key principles of blockchain technology out of the preserve of academia and tech and delivers it to a new audience ― the people.

Find out what the blockchain is; why it is needed and the problems it solves; why there is so much excitement about the blockchain and its potential; major components and their purpose; major application scenarios ― and what it means for you.

“This book is a treasure trove of information for anyone with a curiosity about this new technology and what it means for them in their day to day lives, it helpfully explains the intricacies of blockchain technology in a refreshingly user-friendly and entertaining way.”

Stephen Ingledew, Chief Executive of Fintech Scotland

This is one of the best beginner to intermediate guides to blockchain, bitcoin and cryptocurrency, and I have read a lot of them! First it's a professional job, it's very interesting with historic context, and this makes it much easier to relate to, and keeps it moving. It's realistic too, about what we can expect from this technology and it is very neatly put together, so it is as much a reference book as a good read - a great gift for anyone wanting to get into crypto or find out more.
