The Internet as we know it is great for collaboration and communication, but is deeply flawed when it comes to commerce and privacy. The new blockchain technology facilitates peer-to-peer transactions without any intermediary such as a bank or governing body. Keeping the user's information anonymous, the blockchain validates and keeps a permanent public record of all transactions. That means that your personal information is private and secure, while all activity is transparent and incorruptible--reconciled by mass collaboration and stored in code on a digital ledger. With its advent, we will not need to trust each other in the traditional sense, because trust is built into the system itself.

This new environment requires a different approach for selecting and monitoring dividend-paying stocks. In this book, you will learn strategies for evaluating companies&#x2019; competitive advantages and management teams, identifying promising dividends, recognizing risky dividends, and more."--Page [4] of cover.
