Publisher: Apogeo Editore
Tra tecnologia ed economia, i bitcoin non smettono di fare notizia. Il volume di scambio e la capitalizzazione di mercato presentano andamenti che sorprendono e catturano l'attenzione degli addetti ai lavori. In tutto il mondo molte persone usano i bitcoin per piccole spese, mentre sempre più operazioni finanziarie vengono eseguite anche in criptovalute. Scritto con semplicità e attenzione al dettaglio, questo manuale risponde alle domande di chi guarda ai bitcoin - e alle valute alternative come ethereum, litecoin, ripple e monero - con interesse ma non sa o non osa fare il primo passo. Iniziare a utilizzare le criptovalute o fare investimenti mirati stando lontano da rischi e truffe è alla portata di tutti e per i più timorosi esiste anche la possibilità di accumulare piccole somme senza investire direttamente di tasca propria. L'importante è iniziare a orientarsi in questo nuovo mondo ricco di opportunità.
Take advantage of Bitcoin’s underlying technology, the blockchain, to build massively scalable, decentralized applications known as dapps. In this practical guide, author Siraj Raval explains why dapps will become more widely used—and profitable—than today’s most popular web apps. You’ll learn how the blockchain’s cryptographically stored ledger, scarce-asset model, and peer-to-peer (P2P) technology provide a more flexible, better-incentivized structure than current software models. Once you understand the theory behind dapps and what a thriving dapp ecosystem looks like, Raval shows you how to use existing tools to create a working dapp. You’ll then take a deep dive into the OpenBazaar decentralized market, and examine two case studies of successful dapps currently in use. Learn advances in distributed-system technology that make distributed data, wealth, identity, computing, and bandwidth possible Build a Twitter clone with the Go language, distributed architecture, decentralized messaging app, and peer-to-peer data store Learn about OpenBazaar’s decentralized market and its structure for supporting transactions Explore Lighthouse, a decentralized crowdfunding project that rivals sites such as Kickstarter and IndieGogo Take an in-depth look at La’Zooz, a P2P ridesharing app that transmits data directly between riders and drivers

Bitcoin first appeared in 2009, and it's already challenging everything we've come to accept about money, financial institutions, and even government. The digital currency can be nearly anonymous. And it can be traded internationally—without the fees, government regulation, and bank oversight of paper money. But Bitcoin is still risky. Its value fluctuates wildly. More than $400 billion of it disappeared overnight with the fall of a single trading exchange. How is that possible? And why is it so popular? CNNMoney reporter Jose Pagliery explains it all. He details the digital currency's mysterious origins. He explores the dark side of Bitcoin: a world of drugs and assassins for hire. And he examines the economic impact of this revolutionary concept through interviews with pensive economists, wary bank regulators, and free market proponents such as Ron Paul. Bitcoin: And the Future of Money explains how it works and why it matters. The book is essential reading for anyone looking to understand a financial innovation that will forever change how we think about money.

The Art of Deception
Author: Kevin D. Mitnick, William L. Simon
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
The world's most infamous hacker offers an insider's view of the low-tech threats to high-tech security Kevin Mitnick's exploits as a cyber-desperado and fugitive form one of the most exhaustive FBI manhunts in history and have spawned dozens of articles, books, films, and documentaries. Since his release from federal prison, in 1998, Mitnick has turned his life around and established himself as one of the most sought-after computer security experts worldwide. Now, in The Art of Deception, the world's most notorious hacker gives new meaning to the old adage, "It takes a thief to catch a thief." Focusing on the human factors involved with information security, Mitnick explains why all the firewalls and encryption protocols in the world will never be enough to stop a savvy grifter intent on rifling a corporate database or an irate employee determined to crash a system. With the help of many fascinating true stories of successful attacks on business and government, he illustrates just how susceptible even the most locked-down information systems are to a slick con artist impersonating an IRS agent. Narrating from the points of view of both the attacker and the victims, he explains why each attack was so successful and how it could have been prevented in an engaging and highly readable style reminiscent of a true-crime novel. And, perhaps most importantly, Mitnick offers advice for preventing these types of social engineering hacks through security protocols, training programs, and manuals that address the human element of security.

Have You Heard About Bitcoins? What are they? Who created them? Why are they important? Will they replace paper money? Is it like Gold? Bitcoins are in the news regularly these days. These reports range from talking about how Bitcoins will replace paper money in many countries to how Bitcoins are being used as a way to pay for drugs, gambling and prostitution. So, what's the deal with Bitcoins? Bitcoin is, at its core, virtual currency. It is a digital representation of money that can be used to purchase goods and services in the same way cash can be used to purchase those same goods and services. However, Bitcoin differs considerably from these other currencies in that it is not backed by any bank or nation and has no formal organizational structure behind it. Bitcoin is managed entirely by a Peer to Peer (P2P) network of individuals that manages balances and transactions on its own. Bitcoins are "mined" from computer networks through the process of solving a complex mathematical problem. The total amount of available Bitcoins will ultimately be a finite number, which may create a huge demand, and value for them in the future. Bitcoins are traded on exchanges across the world, which can convert them into the accepted currencies in these countries. Bitcoins are being used to pay for many products and services across the globe today, some legal and some illegal. Bitcoins are NOT science fiction. They are real and you can learn about them by reading this book!
