Blockchain And Distributed Ledgers: Mathematics, Technology, And Economics

Blockchain And Distributed Ledgers: Mathematics, Technology, And Economics One of our favorite machine learning minds, Alexander Lipton has released a new book. This time the good professor has set his attention on Blockchain. Professor Lipton teamed up with Dr. Adrien Treccani to release “Blockchain And Distributed Ledgers: Mathematics, Technology, And Economics.”

At Rebellion Research we recommend reading any of Professor Lipton’s papers. His book presents a fantastic opportunity to gain a jump on your Blockhain knowledge. From graduate student to Executive Director at Goldman Sachs, this book is a very useful learning experience.

Professor Lipton & Dr. Treccani’s book focuses on distributed ledger technology (DLT). Furthermore, its potential impact on society at large.

In addition, it aims to offer a detailed and self-contained introduction to the founding principles behind DLT accessible to a well-educated but not necessarily mathematically oriented audience.

DLT allows solving many complicated problems arising in economics, banking, and finance, industry, trade, and other fields. However, to reap the ultimate benefits, one has to overcome some of its inherent limitations and use it judiciously. Not surprisingly, amid increasing applications of DLT, misconceptions are formed over its use.

Moreover, the book thoroughly dispels these misconceptions via an impartial assessment of the arguments rooted in scientific reasoning.

In conclusion, Blockchain and Distributed Ledgers: Mathematics, Technology, and Economics offers a detailed and self-contained introduction to DLT, blockchains, and cryptocurrencies. In addition, seeks to equip the reader with an ability to participate in the crypto economy meaningfully.
