From the Inside Flap
The Business Blockchain charts new territory in advancing our understanding of the blockchain by unpacking its elements like no other book before, delivering a compelling guide that summons your mind into action. William Mougayar anticipates a future that consists of thousands, if not millions, of blockchains that will enable not only frictionless value exchange, but also a new flow of value, redefining roles, relationships, trust, power, and governance. In this book, Mougayar makes two other strategic assertions. First, the blockchain has polymorphic characteristics; its application will result in a multiplicity of effects. Second, we shouldn't ask ourselves what problems the blockchain solves, because that gives us a narrow view on its potential. Rather, we should imagine new opportunities and let it tackle even more ambitious issues that cross organizational, regulatory, and mental boundaries.
Drawing on 34 years of technology industry experience as an executive, analyst, consultant, entrepreneur, startup mentor, author, blogger, educator, thought leader, and investor, William Mougayar describes a future that is influenced by fundamental shifts brought by blockchain technology as the catalyst for change.
Just as the Internet created new possibilities that we didn't foresee in its early years, the blockchain will give rise to new business models and ideas that may still be invisible.
