Attack of the 50 Foot Blockchain; Bitcoin, Blockchain, Ethereum & Smart Contracts is a 2017 non-fiction book by David Gerard. It focuses on the subject of blockchain technology and gives a skeptical view on the cryptocurrency industry. It was one of the first published books to present the blockchain phenomena in a critical way. The book covers the topic of Bitcoin, using the Mt. Gox exchange and Silk Road darknet marketplace as case studies. It examines the issues with smart contracts. And it finishes with a study of the applications of blockchain technology in the music industry.
The BBC's technology correspondent Rory Cellan-Jones described it as "a very convincing takedown of the whole [cryptocurrency] phenomenon". And it was described as "a sober riposte to all the upbeat forecasts about cryptocurrency" by Sue Halpern, of The New York Review of Books.
