IEEE Spectrum Publishes Special Section Devoted to Understanding Blockchain

The special section is titled “Blockchain World” and includes 10 articles and one video.

Billions of dollars will hinge on what they come up with. So you should understand how blockchains work—and what could happen if they don’t.
