Turan Sert answers the basic questions about blockchain technology and cryptocurrency units in his book “Blockchain Explained in Questions and Answers”.

Blockchain technology has been discussed and talked about since 2008 when Satoshi Nakamoto published Bitcoin White Paper. While the most popular product of blockchain is cryptocurrencies, this technology is used in various areas. The knowledge on blockchain technology, which is started to be used in various areas and sectors from transport to data storage, from notary and certification procedures to voting, is not yet enough common.

According to the “Cryptocurrency Awareness and Perception Survey” conducted by Akademetre on behalf of Paribu, the rate of the ones who do not know that blockchain technology is used in the production of cryptocurrencies is 96.8.

The most important way to eliminate this lack of information is definitely increasing the number of researches and published works and eventually introducing them to more and more people.

The book “Blockchain Explained in Questions and Answers”, written by Turan Sert and published in 2019, is of great importance in eliminating this lack of information.

He explains the most frequently asked questions and the vital information in a quite plain language in his book “Blockchain Explained in Questions and Answers”.

Sert starts his introduction with these words in his work which he pays attention to keep a concise language:

“All of us use an intermediary device such as a cell phone or a desktop computer to access the internet. These devices connect to a large network called the web to execute our commands. Similarly, a group of machines all around the world are specifically connected to each other within this network. Blockchain and crypto technology enables all machines connected to this network to talk to each other cryptically.”

The creation and development of blockchain technology, its effect and relationship with the sectors, its reflections on social life, art, and environmental factors are explained in the book. Moreover, the answers to many questions regarding the future of this technology, types of cryptocurrencies, and the things about them that interest people are included in the book.

Areas of use for blockchain technology

In the book, it is also discussed what will the effect of blockchain technology in the areas such as health, production, art, supply chain, education, and travel be now and in the future. For example, it is mentioned that artworks can be sold by being tokenized using blockchain technology, and the individuals who cannot afford the whole piece can buy a part of it as an investment. Similarly, he explains that the entire system may be renewed using blockchain infrastructure to minimize the problems encountered during the purchase of travel and accommodation services.

Blockchain technology and reliability

Sert explains the topic with an example, thinking that eliminating the question marks regarding the reliability of this technology is required:

“Consider this as a continuously spun spider web. After a fly fell into the web, the spider keeps spinning new webs, and it gets harder and harder for the fly to set free. In other words, after a piece of information is saved in a system and validated, all other information building on it is similarly saved and validated. You need to change all the information from that point in the past until today to make a retrospective change, that is to say, it gets harder and harder to make retrospective changes.”

After important information about the rapidly continuing adventure of blockchain, you find information about the products of this technology. Well, what is the most popular of these products? Cryptocurrencies for sure. He further explains Bitcoin, which is considered the father of cryptocurrencies, and other proven cryptocurrencies under different titles.
