This is NOT a technical book. It’s more about the larger societal and business implications of blockchain – like, how the world will change because blockchain exists.

However, the book might have done well with some more technical information. The most frustrating phrase is “on the blockchain.” The authors constantly say things like, “in the future, we’ll do [whatever] on the blockchain.” What does that even mean?

I realize they weren’t going for a technical book, but I needed some context as to the practical way that blockchain technology might manifest itself in different realms. Without that, I was just kind of taking their word for it, and it was hard to ground yourself in reality.
