Rekomendasi Buku Blockchain : Blockchain Revolution

Akhir akhir ini saya rajin membaca, berdiskusi, meneliti keilmuan terkait Blockchain bersama beberapa rekan peneliti dalam satu tim diskusi riset Blockchain. Hal ini berkaitan dengan program RC DBE yang akan mengadakan sertifikasi dan pelatihan Blockchain Technology Consultant. Blockchain adalah keilmuan yang sangat luas, melewati batas disiplin keilmuan tradisional. Beberapa domain berkaitan dengan bisnis, pemerintahan, IoT (smart city), kemasyarakatan, lingkungan, dan lain lain, tercakup dalam bidang yang dapat mengalami disrupsi / revolusi dengan adanya teknologi ini.

Banyak buku dan course yang menawarkan pengetahuan tentang Blockchain, namun satu buku yang menurut saya sangat bagus, sebagai pengetahuan awal tentang bagaimana implementasi dan use case dari teknologi Blockchain, bagaimana teknologi ini bisa membawa perubahan fundamental dan revolusioner terhadap sistem otoritas pusat yang ada di dunia saat ini. Sebelum masuk ke pengetahuan teknis implementasi dan pengembangan teknologi Blockchain, sebaiknya buku ini dibaca dulu Bukunya adalah Blockchain Revolution : How The Technology Behind Bitcoin is Changing Money, Business, and The World. Saya rekomendasikan Buku karya duo ayah anak Don dan Alex Tapscott Ini.

Seminar Blockchain Cardano

Sejak saya diberikan kepercayaan di lembaga Research Center, saya berpikir bahwa selain bidang Big Data & Data Analytics yang saya dan tim (labscbd.com) kuasai, ada satu bidang keilmuan lain yang menurut saya punya prospek cerah dimasa depan. Bidang tersebut adalah bidang Blockchain. Secara desain Blockchain menjaga integritas data dengan cara menyebarkan catatan tentang data ke semua node di dalam jaringan (desentralisasi). Banyak aplikasi dunia nyata dimana redundansi data membuat kekacauan, contohnya adalah catatan kepemilikan tanah, dimana satu petak tanah bisa dipunyai oleh beberapa orang, hal ini disebabkan karena pada saat dokumen tanah dibuat, tidak ada referensi yang baik mengenai siapa yang sudah memiliki tanah itu sebenarnya. Banyak aplikasi lain blockchain diantaranya adalah untuk keperluan voting, cryptocurrency, smart contracts.
