5.0 out of 5 stars The BEST blockchain book out there - great explanations and thorough analysis!
Reviewed in the United States on 16 July 2019
As an MBB consultant for the tech industry, I have spent a lot of time trying to get a good understanding of blockchain and its future. Bubble or Revolution is the only book I have read that does exactly this. It does a fantastic job of explaining how blockchain technology works (about one fourth of the book). I really like how the authors use creative metaphors to explain what is happening behind the scenes - I feel like I can now explain how tech works to a 5th grader.

The remaining three fourths of the book focuses on the use cases for blockchains and cryptocurrencies in the form of case studies and research (other books like Blockchain Basics spend 60% of the book explaining the tech in micro details that are irrelevant). There is a lot of thoughtful analysis when dissecting these case studies that helped me understand some of the shortcomings and weaknesses of blockchain technology.

I have read a lot of overly bullish books (like Blockchain Revolution), but Bubble or Revolution differs in that it offers frameworks for helping you understand in what use cases the pros of blockchain technology outweigh the cons. The authors do a fantastic job of making predictions on how major countries (e.g. China) and major companies (e.g. Facebook and Microsoft) will adopt blockchain and the reasons behind it.

If you are looking for an easy to understand overview of how blockchain works, why it matters, AND where the technology is headed from an unbiased perspective, I'd highly recommend checking out Bubble or Revolution!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bubble or Revolution Fills a Gap in Knowledge regarding the Technologies of the Future
Reviewed in the United States on 22 June 2019
Bitcoin became a buzzword overnight. Pitched as the currency of the future, the sensational hype around the cryptocurrency and its blockchain base revolutionized the fintech sector. However, a lot of the commotion around bitcoin was exactly that, commotion. People did not truly seem to understand bitcoin and blockchain, a gap of knowledge preventing progress and innovation.

In Bubble or Revolution, Neel Mehta, Adi Agashe, and Parth Detroja aim to bridge the gap between the everyday individual and cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies. Mehta, Agashe, and Detroja demystify cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies – their origins, their functions, and the necessary knowledge needed to successfully navigate a cyber-economy. They offer insightful case studies worded in the vernacular, which make it easy for the reader to understand complex technological concepts and envision what a future with these technologies would come to look like. With case studies ranging from global warming to online voting to Venezuela promoting its own cryptocurrency, Bubble or Revolution offers it all. Mehta, Agashe, and Detroja also delve into Bitcoin and its alternatives, providing a high-level look at the cryptocurrency market with even contemporary events factored in, such as Facebook’s recent plunge into cryptocurrency. They not only explain to the reader what these technologies are, but also how they apply to the economic, political, and legal spheres in our lives today. And they go above and beyond by incorporating insights from tech industry leaders regarding cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies to give the reader an unparalleled vault of knowledge regarding these contemporary technologies.

The future economy will look very different with the advent of cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies; Bubble or Revolution will prepare you for that new age.
