Token Economy” is a book by Shermin Voshmgir which will be officially launched in July 2019 at 1E9 Conference. It was written under the premise that cryptographic tokens, as an application of Blockchain and derived technologies, might be as revolutionary as the emergence of the WWW as an application of the Internet. The goal of this book is to give a 360-degree view of the inner workings of the state of blockchain in the context of the Web3, discuss the socio-political implications, and explain why cryptographic tokens might prove to be the killer app of blockchain and smart contracts, deep diving into selected use cases.

This book is written for anyone who is interested to understand the relevance of tokens in the context of blockchain technology. It builds on the legacy of our work at the BlockchainHub, the educational posts and Blockchain Handbook published in 2017 that has had over 50.000 downloads.
