IBM Is Giving Their eBook "Blockchain For Dummies," Away For Free. Great For Newcomers! Share The Knowledge!

in steem •  last year

The title practically says it all.

Last week while at Consensus 2017 in New York, I visited IBM's booth and chatted them up for a bit to see what they were up to. At their booth, they were giving away physical copies of their short book "Blockchain For Dummies." But they were also giving away copies of the book in digital form, pretty sweet deal! It's geared toward newcomers to the space to help them understand WHAT a blockchain is, HOW it works, etc.

Many people on Steemit probably come from other social media outlets and may think that Steemit is "just another social media website that just so happens to be crazy enough to give away a bunch of money," and that cannot be further from the truth! Steemit is actually built on top of the graphene based Steem blockchain.

"What is the Steem blockchain?" You might find yourself asking. Well, to answer that, you should read the official whitepaper located here: https://steem.io/SteemWhitePaper.pdf It's actually pretty fascinating stuff and I implore you to read it.

Now, you might find yourself asking "So uhh, what's a blockchain?!" That's where the book "Blockchain For Dummies," may come in very handy to you! Luckily, IBM is being kind enough to spread this publication around free of charge. So if you want to expand your knowledge of the cryptocurrency world and how it all ticks, this is an excellent starting position. If you find it useful, send it to people that you know that you may think would find this interesting or useful. Knowledge is power!

IBM's eBook "Blockchain For Dummies," can be downloaded free of charge here:

Tweeted for you too man - I tweet a lot of Steemit stuff trying to drive people here - the guy running the official Steemit twitter page decided he did not like me month ago so stopped sharing my tweets LOL le sigh for dissenting opinions of those at the top.

That rules, thanks so much man! The more hands we get it into, the more we've helped the world/society. Pretty cool.

Thanks!

Thank you really great book!

Nice! Hopefully it can help bring some folks into the blockchain fold! It's an important technology to get in tune with as soon as possible. It's becoming more and more ingrained in society and technology every second.

That is the truth! More reason while I am putting #Steemit and #Blockchain into the curriculum for new members of The Wealth Builder Team.

This whole space hasn't hit mainstream adoption yet or even close to it. We're "still in the womb," we aren't even a baby yet in the grand scheme of things.

That means, we still have so much opportunities.

If you haven't read this book, it is one of the best ways to get up to speed on the space. Does not waste time blabbing about Bitcoin but goes right into the generalization and flexibility of this tech.

Resteem for visibility!
