La blockchain est annoncée comme une révolution technologique, économique, politique et sociétale aussi puissante qu’Internet. Cette « chaîne de blocs » promet d’être l’outil incontournable de demain. 

À quoi sert la blockchain ? 

Cette nouvelle technologie permet avant tout d’envoyer de l’argent en ligne sans intermédiaire : ni banque, ni compagnie de carte de crédit. Elle pourrait bouleverser la finance, l’assurance et le transfert d’argent tout en étant le moteur d’un vaste mouvement de décentralisation de l’économie numérique. Grâce à elle, certains rêvent déjà « d’ubériser Uber ». Cette « invention géniale », selon Jean-Claude Trichet, l’ancien président de la Banque centrale européenne, donne également la possibilité d’enregistrer de l’information de manière immuable : diplômes, documents administratifs, titres de propriétés et même bulletins de vote. Les démocraties et les administrations vont pouvoir se réinventer !
Passionné par cette transformation en cours, le journaliste Stéphane Loignon l’analyse dans cette grande enquête réalisée auprès de 48 spécialistes dans sept pays (créateurs de start-ups, experts de grands groupes, financiers, universitaires, députés…). Avec enthousiasme, esprit critique et pédagogie, il décrypte le fonctionnement de la blockchain, explique ses enjeux, évalue son potentiel et expose toutes les applications existantes et futures. Une révolution qui nous concerne tous.

Trés bonne introduction á la technologie du blockchain, sans rentrer dans trop de détails techniques. Stéphane Loignon commence par nous amener dans un voyage vers le future pour nous présenter à quoi pourrait ressembler un monde post-blockchain, par la suite il retrace l'histoire et l'origine de cette technologie révolutionaire . Le livre ensuite dévelope le potentiel et les impacts de la blockchain vu par des startups, états, banques et dans des domaines variés: économique, sociale, politique...

L’irruption de la blockchain laisse entrevoir un monde radicalement différent, plus efficace, plus transparent, plus automatisé, où nous seriont tous plus libre et mieux considéré comme consommateur, travailleur et citoyen. Comment collecter les taxes et les impôts dans ce nouveau monde ou tout sera decentralisé sera un challenge, qui occupera bon nombre d'experts dans les mois et années à venir ;-)
