The First and Last Blockchain Book: Bubble or Revolution: The Present and Future of Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies

In June 2019, Bitcoin took another wild ride, soaring to its highest price since January 2018. It promptly crashed and wiped out five days’ worth of gains, only to spike a week later. This is yet another chapter in Bitcoin’s history of crashes and volatility. And despite the coin’s instability, cryptocurrencies aren’t going anywhere: Facebook’s new cryptocurrency, Libra, is set to launch in 2020. But will Libra — and all the other startups and major corporations going all-in on blockchain — become just another bubble, or a bona fide revolution?

The highly-anticipated new book Bubble or Revolution: The Present and Future of Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies seeks to explore that question and many more. It was authored by Neel Mehta, Aditya Agashe, and Parth Detroja, who are, respectively, Product Managers at Google, Microsoft, and Facebook. The three previously teamed up to write the #1 bestselling book Swipe to Unlock, which has been featured in Business Insider, Forbes and more. Mehta, Agashe and Detroja blend their knowledge of the tech sector and interviews with dozens of crypto experts to provide deep insights into the technical, economic, political, and social implications of blockchains and cryptocurrencies. Bubble or Revolution gives you the tools to separate the hype surrounding these technologies from their true potential.

“Whether you are bearish or bullish on crypto, Bubble or Revolution brilliantly articulates both sides of the argument and offers well researched insight on the future of blockchain technology.” – Mike Novogratz, Billionaire CEO of blockchain investment firm, Galaxy Digital.

Bubble or Revolution uses the acclaimed case-study approach that has become Swipe to Unlock’s calling card, using real-world examples to explain buzzwords and break down complex topics. These examples range from supply chain to voting to ill-fated attempts to put copyrights on the blockchain. The book pairs its case studies with plain-English descriptions of how cryptocurrencies and blockchains work, with no assumed technical knowledge.

Bubble or Revolution manages to offer powerful, well-researched insights while remaining accessible to everyone — filling the gaping hole in the market of crypto books. It is is now available at major retailers including Amazon and Barnes and Noble. It is the first and last book you will ever need to buy on blockchain.
