An Introduction to Ethereum and Smart Contracts

Ever wondered how blockchains work? Or how Bitcoin managed to change the landscape of monetary transactions? Or what's the magic behind Ethereum? Then this e-book is for you.

We explore how they became instrumental in the development of the first large-scale cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, and how its ideas were extended to give birth to Ethereum, a powerful blockchain that marries decentralized transactions with Turing-complete contracts.
