With Enterprise Blockchain Has Arrived, Radhika Iyengar and Jorden Woods have delivered a bracing assessment of the shortcomings of Web 2.0. Fortunately, the authors argue, the rise of enterprise blockchain is already creating a new foundation for trust and transparency. More than celebrating this new normal, however, the book offers even laymen an accessible explanation for why decentralized identity is so exciting. Through interviews with the leaders in fields ranging from finance to automotive, Enterprise Blockchain Has Arrived sheds light on how decentralized networks will promote collaboration and transform entire industries.
