By @SimonCocking, review of Blockchain Ethics: A Bridge to Abundance, by Jamil Hasan. Available from Amazon here. 

Unlike many other recent Blockchain books focused on describing and defining Blockchain technology from a technical or cryptocurrency perspective, this unique book takes a very different tack: its focus is on how mainstream and marginalized Americans can use blockchain technology and digital assets ethically to create an abundant life.

This book explores what Blockchain technology is doing today and how it can be used to create a better tomorrow.

The book daringly explores how blockchain technology can make a difference in improving America’s education system, cracking the Glass Ceiling, altering employment outlooks, and improving every person’s financial future.

The author examines and explores the business and social impact that open sourced Blockchain technology promises us is possible. And, in turn, discusses how we Americans can take those possibilities to create our economy, country, and lives into bustling meccas of abundance for E-V-E-R-Y-O-N-E.

There is a lot of positive elements to this book. It is aimed at a general reader, it is accessible, there are good case studies. Overall it is also a quick read, it is not that long in the first place, and the line spacing on each page is also on the generous side, making it even shorter than it appears. It was enjoyable to read, but you wonder if it is not quite accurately named yet. This book is an exploration of blockchain and it’s many, exciting use cases, but there doesn’t really seem to be an examination of the ethics of blockchain. Which is potentially a very different subject matter. With the new world of print on demand publishing it is quite possible that for future versions of this book we may see an exploration of what blockchain ethics may, or may not look like. It could certainly make for an interesting additional chapter or two and enable the author to dig a little deeper in the topic. For now this is an interesting book as far as it goes.
