According to some, the idea of Ethereum was born in 2009, when Bitcoin became the first practical solution of decentralization. Undoubtedly, the success of Blockchain greatly influenced Vitalik Buterin, the man behind Ethereum. However, 2012 would be a more particular date. That is when Vitalik left the University of Waterloo to travel the world while participating in various cryptocurrency innovations. While on this trip, Buterin conceived the Ethereum idea; a crypto economically secured platform for creating any kind of decentralized application. After that, Vitalik started drafting the Ethereum Whitepaper. The document justified the idea of a new crypto technology, stated its main principles, and possible applications. The whitepaper was published in 2013, and a month later, Buterin announced the beginning of Ethereum project during the Bitcointalk forum. In his post, Vitalik said that he was working with Jeffrey Wilcke and Dr. Gavin Wood as principle core developers. Wood took the main part in Ethereum creation after Vitalik. His Yellow Paper (the formal specification of Ethereum Virtual Machine) was published in April 2014. Coding its very first practical implementation in seven programming languages, this was the development of the first prototype of Ethereum platform. Just like Ethereum, Bitcoin is based on Blockchain technology, but this means nothing if it is not backed by the most powerful network in history. Investors channeled millions of dollars into Bitcoin, using the money on trading, mining equipment, and technologies. Launching a network like that demands the same amount (or more) of effort. To kick-start a group of investors, miners, and developers, the Ethereum foundation chose to carry out a pre-sale of more than 60M digital tokens (Ethers). The campaign ended up being a major success.

From The Author Of The Top Selling Book "Cryptocurrency: 5 Expert Secrets For Beginners: Investing Into Bitcoin, Ethereum And Litecoin" If you're new to Cryptocurrencies, you may be wondering what on earth is the term 'Ethereum'? I myself was curious too. I wondered if it was some sort of new sci-fi movie that was released or an extension of the never ending Transformers saga. In some ways it could be, but that we will have to wait. In this present day, Ethereum is a new age revolution, being the second biggest cryptocurrency after Bitcoin. It has made headlines all around the world being the leader in alternative coins, allowing itself to explode in value in 2017. I myself started investing into cryptocurrencies with Ethereum, and if you've read my previous book, 'Mastering Bitcoin', you'd know I started investing because of my friend. Not only did he make an outstanding 400% return on his investment, he told me his next investment project was Ethereum. I was curious to know what this was and I studied everything I could about Ethereum, and here we are. The multi-billionaire investor Warren Buffet once said; "Never invest in a business you cannot understand." In this book, we will first familiarize you with the essentials of Ethereum, explain everything you need to know about the cryptocurrency, so that you become smarter than the average Ethereum investor. Here is what you will learn... - Fundamentals of Ethereum - History of Ethereum - Benefits and Risks Investing into Ethereum - Ethereum Mining - Security of Ethereum - The Future of Ethereum Be the smart person you are and make the wise decision today.

While many books explain the how of bitcoin, The Internet of Money delves into the why of bitcoin. Acclaimed information-security expert and author of Mastering Bitcoin, Andreas M. Antonopoulos examines and contextualizes the significance of bitcoin through a series of essays spanning the exhilarating maturation of this technology. Bitcoin, a technological breakthrough quietly introduced to the world in 2008, is transforming much more than finance. Bitcoin is disrupting antiquated industries to bring financial independence to billions worldwide. In this book, Andreas explains why bitcoin is a financial and technological evolution with potential far exceeding the label -digital currency.- Andreas goes beyond exploring the technical functioning of the bitcoin network by illuminating bitcoin's philosophical, social, and historical implications. As the internet has essentially transformed how people around the world interact and has permanently impacted our lives in ways we never could have imagined, bitcoin--the internet of money--is fundamentally changing our approach to solving social, political, and economic problems through decentralized technology.

Blockchain For the Non-Technical*** THIS IS A PREVIEW PRINT ***I am IBM ́s official liaison to the Ethereum core developers and frequently give talks on blockchain topics around the world. After one keynote I was asked for a non-technical guide to understand blockchains. This is it.This book aims to help you get your head around blockchains in general and around Ethereum specifically.Since Ethereum is currently the pre-imminent blockchain, it makes sense as reference point. The essential stuff is the same for any blockchain.This text was written for people with a fast grasp, who are not programmers. Reading this should give you the basics to cut through the hype and to identify blockchain opportunities in your professional domain.There are tiny bits of code, which can be admired and skipped.We ́ll look at Ethereum ́s benefits first, how it is used and what can be done with it; then explain blockchain machinery, visiting the terms that you ́ll be confronted with in every discussion about its application. Exactly what you need to tell the noise from the signal in the echo chamber of honest misunderstandings and desperate marketing.We take a good hard look at limitations, throw in some history and names and give a realistic outlook.The index reads like an FAQ and you can use the book like that. However, there is a strong build up, one chapter leading to the next, as optimized path to understanding all the interconnected, moving parts. There ́s quite a number of them.Blockchains are not a trivial topic.The fact that blockchain client programs are small has fooled many people into believing it can ́t possibly be that hard. The challenges are in the implications though.But what's in this book will put you ahead of almost everyone outside the core bubble.If you find something explained badly, please yell at me at: ethereum.bookØgmail.comA deep dive into this field now - at least getting started - will help you to become part of the fun ahead. It should allow you to stand out, land deals or a great job.It will also make you see first hand how early we are in the game. Take your time! It ́s worth it.Hopefully, we will find a contributor to the blockchain community in you, strengthening the portfolio of real-world use cases. Ideally, you ́ll learn to navigate your own uncharted course through your domain and revolutionize it, applying blockchain tech where it really makes sense.From the Book's Index:What is Ethereum?What is Ether?What is Ethereum Not?What is Ethereum Used for?Create Your Own Digital Currency!How Does Ethereum Compare?How Does Ethereum Work?What is a Blockchain?What ́s the Magic?What is Holding It Back?What is a Cryptocurrency?What is a Digital Currency?What is a Digital Asset?What is a Mirror Asset?What is Mining?
