The INDEPENDENT PRESS AWARD recognized Blockchain or Die by Eric Guthrie, Esq.  in the category of technology as a distinguished favorite. The competition is judged by experts from different aspects of the book industry, including publishers, writers, editors, book cover designers, and professional copywriters. Selected award winners and distinguished favorites are based on overall excellence.

Blockchain or Die is a business book, training book, and a resource book in one book. Blockchains and cryptocurrencies are transforming currencies, business, technology, law, government, and most industries. Organizations that adopt this new technology will thrive and organizations that do not adopt it will miss the competitive advantages including investments, sales, new customers, marketing, and many other benefits. In other words, organizations that do not adopt blockchain technology may “die”. Hence the title “Blockchain or Die.”

A gripping narrative infused with dramatic realism, this book shows what a society running on the blockchain could look like, intertwining allegory and commentary to capture the current debate around bitcoin, altcoins, and money.
