Bubble or Revolution:

The Present and Future of Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies

4 Reasons to Read the Book

No background required

We explain how bitcoin and blockchain work in the first 25 pages, with no jargon or prior assumed knowledge.


Because we work at Google, Microsoft, and Facebook, our livelihoods aren’t financially tied to the success of blockchain technology. Thus we skip the hand waving and ultra-bullish sentiment and provide a down the middle assessment of all the important topics.

Well-researched with exclusive interviews

Includes analysis from interviews with over 100 blockchain founders, venture capitalists, developers, and academics.

Real world case studies

Based on the model that made Swipe to Unlock famous, we include case studies of real-world blockchain applications and major cryptocurrency events.
