商品描述

A comprehensive guide to the most recent developments in blockchains in theoretical and industrial perspectives

Originally introduced as a method to keep track of Bitcoin transactions over a peer-to-peer network, blockchain is a continuously growing list of records, called blocks, which are linked and secured using cryptography into a chain held in public databases. The use of this technology has grown since its cryptocurrency creation and now store three types of information: 1) transactions, including the date, time, and value of purchases; 2) records of participates in transactions; and 3) unique code known as a "hash" that distinguishes one block from another. A single block on the blockchain can hold 1 MB of data, or potentially thousands of transactions - this then can allow for hundreds of thousands of transactions to be recorded as each block can join the state-of-the-art blockchain.

Blockchains provides a detailed overview of the latest and most innovative concepts, techniques, and applications related to the developing blockchain. Aimed at novices and experts on the subject, the book focuses on blockchain technologies, integrated systems, and use cases, specifically by looking at three major technical areas: blockchain platforms and distributed database technologies, consensus and fault tolerance, and Blockchain as a Service (BaaS). These avenues of research are essential to support blockchain functionalities, such as acquiring and updating existing data, securing data resources and the recovery of failures, and using blockchains in various services that range from cryptocurrencies to cloud automation.

Blockchains readers will also find:

  • Brainstorming activities that gradually builds the knowledge of readers on the described technology and deployment scenarios
  • Investigation of specific topics such as novel networking protocols, wireless techniques, new infrastructure designs, operations management, and deployment strategies
  • Discussion of technical challenges in blockchain, as well as how to manage cloud-based networks, service automation, and cyber security
  • Numerous elementary and advanced examples on various topics at the end of the book that can be used for training purposes
  • Illustrations including tables and diagrams to help elucidate points made throughout the volume
  • Glossary of relevant terminology to blockchains in enterprise

Blockchains is a useful reference for researchers in vehicular networking and computer science, as well as cloud storage providers and governmental offices for data management.

一本關於區塊鏈在理論和工業觀點下最新發展的全面指南

區塊鏈最初作為一種在點對點網絡上追踪比特幣交易的方法而被引入,它是一個不斷增長的記錄列表,稱為區塊,這些區塊使用加密技術連接和保護,形成存儲在公共數據庫中的鏈。自從它的加密貨幣創建以來,這項技術的應用已經增長,現在可以存儲三種類型的信息:1)交易,包括購買的日期、時間和價值;2)參與交易的記錄;和3)稱為“哈希”的唯一代碼,用於區分一個區塊與另一個區塊。區塊鏈上的一個區塊可以容納1 MB的數據,或者潛在地可以容納數千筆交易 - 這樣每個區塊都可以加入最先進的區塊鏈,記錄數十萬筆交易。

《區塊鏈》提供了關於發展中區塊鏈的最新和最創新的概念、技術和應用的詳細概述。這本書針對初學者和專家,專注於區塊鏈技術、集成系統和用例,具體來看有三個主要的技術領域:區塊鏈平台和分佈式數據庫技術、共識和容錯能力,以及區塊鏈即服務(BaaS)。這些研究方向對支持區塊鏈功能至關重要,例如獲取和更新現有數據、保護數據資源和故障恢復,以及在從加密貨幣到雲自動化等各種服務中使用區塊鏈。

《區塊鏈》讀者還將找到:
- 逐步建立讀者對所描述的技術和部署場景的知識的頭腦風暴活動
- 對特定主題的調查,例如新型網絡協議、無線技術、新基礎設施設計、運營管理和部署策略
- 討論區塊鏈中的技術挑戰,以及如何管理基於雲的網絡、服務自動化和網絡安全
- 書末的許多初級和高級例子,可用於培訓目的
- 包括表格和圖表的插圖,以幫助闡明整本書中提出的觀點
- 相關術語對於企業區塊鏈的詞彙表

《區塊鏈》對於車載網絡和計算機科學的研究人員、雲存儲提供商和政府機構的數據管理人員來說是一個有用的參考資料。
