I'm working on an introductory #book about #decentralisation protocols. 🦄

It serves as a taster for different technologies, and provides you with a path forward to deepen your studies if you're so inclined.

hope you enjoy it!

@mattcropp Alas, I am not on Twitter, but I would urge people to look at Luis Razeto's Manual for Creating Solidarity Enterprises, already being used by co-ops in the Worcester MA and Denver CO:
