Blockchain Competitive Advantage: Learn How to Win the Battle for Blockchain Competitive Advantage, Reviewed
Written in 2019, this book has elements of foresight and is also a reminder of how far things have come and changed since it was written. The authors have a good base in the industry to write this book, and they have impressive resumes, meaning the book isn’t written for opportunistic reasons.
The book follows a systematic structure and carefully explains what blockchains are, their different flavors, why they are useful, and how they can be applied to various potential business cases. Chapter 13, Entrepreneur Advantage is also a good example of a detailed exploration of potential opportunities that are worth exploring. Even two years later, it can be argued that the technology has matured and there may be less of a gap between the hype and the possibilities of what can actually be achieved.
The authors have written a series of books in this area and it is a helpful addition to the broader big picture they are hoping to describe and inform the terms of the opportunities there.
