A Practical Introduction to Blockchain with Python

Blockchain is arguably one of the most significant and disruptive technologies that came into existence since the inception of the Internet. It’s the core technology behind Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies that drew a lot of attention in the last few years.

As its core, a blockchain is a distributed database that allows direct transactions between two parties without the need of a central authority. This simple yet powerful concept has great implications for various institutions such as banks, governments and marketplaces, just to name a few. Any business or organization that relies on a centralized database as a core competitive advantage can potentially be disrupted by blockchain technology.
