Blockchain technology is now attracting a lot of attention in many areas. Nevertheless, not all that glitters is gold. In the Springer series IT-kompakt the book "Blockchain kompakt" has now been published, edited by H.-G. Fill and A. Meier with the participation of members of the iimt-research group and others. The book explains the basics of Blockchain and shows and critically evaluates application options (e.g. in the energy sector).
