The Truth Machine

Michael J. Casey ☆ 0 SUMMARY SUMMARY ò The Truth Machine Way past all this―a new kind of operating system with the potential to revolutionise our economy the blockchainIn The Truth Machine Michael J Casey and Paul Vigna demystify the blockchain and explain why it can restore personal control over our data assets and identities; grant billions of excluded people access to the global economy; and shift the balance of power to revive society’s faith in i. So many times I complained because I couldn t understand the phenomenon of Bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies I didn t understand how they are created and why their value is so volatile From my point of view fueled by banks and other authorities it was clear speculation an investment bubble created by our basic instincts driven by a bunch of greedy guysThe Truth Machine explores a short history of publicly maintained databases such as Wikipedia and presents it as an excellent example of how we should create and store information in the future Then the concept of encryption is presented which by blending with a public database makes a good starting point to illustrate how Bitcoins work I still might be wrong but for me Bitcoin is a value chain with a limited amount of values This limitation mixed with a whole exchanging mechanism around makes it so valuable I think that I have acknowledged the concept of ciphered peer to peer deals and by catching that now I understand why all financial institutions and governments oppose it so ferociously Frankly speaking peer to peer if you like to read my full review please visit my blog

Michael J. Casey ☆ 0 SUMMARY SUMMARY ò The Truth Machine From the authors of the fascinating The Age of Cryptocurrency comes the definitive work on the Internet’s next big thing the blockchainMany of the ‘legacy systems’ once designed to make our lives easier and our economy efficient are no longer up to the task; big banks have grown entrenched privacy exists only until the next hack and credit card fraud has become a fact of life However there is a. This could have been good but they got enough details wrong not due to facts changing but just sloppiness and bad editing plus a huge amount of filler half of the book that it wouldn t be worthwhile for most people Unfortunately I m not aware of other better books about cryptocurrency beyond the initial bitcoin and basic blockchain tech levelI m a relative expert in this topic involved in anonymous electronic cash and similar projects since 1992 currently working in the cryptocurrency space in technology and security so I was already familiar with essentially all of the content in the book The problem with a book like this is that in addition to constantly moving goalposts a lot of projects are rather deceptive and if you write about things with too high a level of credulity it will ultimately be misleading There is probably some value in just summarizing what projects say they intend to do but a lot value in actual analysisThe fluff level was high but there was probably a solid 50 100 page book inside If that had been combined with some deeper analysis of projects technology and results it would be worth reading

Michael J. Casey ☆ 0 SUMMARY SUMMARY ò The Truth Machine Tself They reveal the empowerment possible when self interested middlemen give way to the transparency of the blockchain while highlighting the job losses assertion of special interests and threat to social cohesion that will accompany this shift With a balanced perspective Casey and Vigna show why we all must care about the path that blockchain technology takes―moving humanity forward not backward. I really didn t know a single thing about blockchain before reading this book For that reason this title was excellent for me as I took it as an overview for the layperson as to what blockchain could theoretically do and what it has already doneIt did a great job of accomplishing its aim to educate the unwashed masses like myself I actually didn t mind it s political sections either unlike most people As a Libertarian it was refreshing to hear commentators from The Left who are so well spoken It s always good to hear the other sideMy gripes with the book were that it got really in the weeds at a few points That s fine except I thought the general idea of the work was to dumb things down This would be made forgivable if they didn t gloss over some other sections where blockchain was utterly fascinating That said I loved nearly every chapter Really fun read Recommended

    Michael J. Casey ☆ 0 SUMMARY PDF NEW The Truth Machine ¹ Michael J. Casey The first third of this book does a better job than most of explaining in layman's terms what a blockchain is and what its potential benefits are But the rest of the book feels half finished planting several seeds that don't ever find a full flowering Perhaps that's the drawback of writing about a subject that is evolving so uickly every new day's headlines would seem to demand an alteration or updating of the blockchain story an
