Product description

Product Description

Since Satoshi Nakamoto published his seminal white paper on Bitcoin in 2008, the world has never been the same. Behind the famous—and sometimes infamous— cryptocurrency lies the real revolution: the blockchain technology that powers it.

While industries and governments are slowly waking up to the technology’s potential in mobile payments and remittances, what many don’t realize is how truly game- changing it can be when used as part of a national development strategy, especially for emerging economies like the Philippines.

This book explores how blockchain technology can help alleviate many of the pressing issues that plague the archipelago today, paving the way toward a nation with a strong foundation, a bustling economy, and high social mobility.

Of course, no technology will solve all of our problems. However, combined with right governance and
implementation, blockchain holds a lot of potential in shaping the future of the Philippine nation.

This book is for academics, technology professionals, public servants, economic planners, policy leaders, humanitarian groups, and anyone involved in creating solutions for national development.

We’ll begin the book by discussing our challenges as a nation, then provide an overview of the technology and how it works. I’ll then present case studies of how blockchain can help with specific areas of national development. Once we’ve covered the applications of blockchain, we’ll talk about potential pitfalls and other implementation considerations. At the end of this book, you’ll get an understanding of the possibilities offered by the technology and, I hope, ideas on how to implement it in your field of practice.
