Blockchain: The Next Everything by Stephen P. Williams

Blockchain (2019) takes a look at what many are calling the most groundbreaking technological innovation since the Internet, the blockchain. It breaks down how this unhackable digital ledger works, how it inherently subverts traditional hierarchies, and why experts think it could radically affect businesses, governments, banking, culture, and communication.

  • Blockchain novices eager to understand this new technology
  • Economists, sociologists and artists
  • Readers disillusioned with today’s social and financial institutions

Stephen P. Williams is a journalist and nonfiction author. He has written for the New York Times, Newsweek, and GQ, and runs a sustainable fashion start-up called Wm. Williams, which uses blockchain technology to conduct distributed manufacturing.
