New Textbook on Blockchain and Web 3.0 Co-Written by UW’s Lupien

A textbook co-written by the director of the University of Wyoming Center for Blockchain and Digital Innovation provides students and teachers with insights into the future of blockchain and Web 3.0.

Steve Lupien co-wrote “Blockchain Fundamentals for Web 3.0” with Mary Lacity, a distinguished professor of information systems and director of the Blockchain Center of Excellence in the Sam M. Walton College of Business at the University of Arkansas. The textbook was published this fall by the University of Arkansas Press.

Lupien teaches several courses in UW’s minor in blockchain degree program. Lupien says he and Lacity were motivated to write a textbook due to the fast-evolving nature of blockchain, which made many available books dated. While there are numerous books on blockchains, crypto and digital assets, he and Lacity focused on blockchain applications for Web 3.0.

Save the Date!
