About the Author
Dr. Ari Juels is a professor at Cornell Tech in New York City and at Cornell University, and codirector of the Initiative for CryptoCurrencies and Contracts (IC3). A renowned expert on blockchains and smart contracts, he also serves as Chief Scientist at Chainlink Labs, developer of today's most widely used blockchain oracles.
"Ari Juels is a brilliant researcher at the forefront of understanding cryptography and what it means for our ability to trust each other and what we see in the world."
--Vitalik Buterin, inventor of Ethereum

"Ari Juels's foresight regularly makes me wonder if he himself should be considered an oracle. His novel The Oracle makes it clear that the interaction between blockchains and AI creates a powerful force for how the world will work."
--Sergey Nazarov, cofounder and CEO, Chainlink Labs

"A common definition of science fiction is 'making an argument for a world that has not yet come into existence.' In The Oracle, Ari Juels, a person at the heart of building tomorrow's world, does just that. A roller-coaster thriller that takes you irresistibly down a slippery slope of empowered cults using the latest technology to wag the societal dog. A must-read if you want to understand the new frontier that crypto brings to the real world. Brilliantly written and also very approachable, teaching you the basics of the crypto world of blockchain, smart contracts, and oracles in a fun and accessible way."
--Laurence Moroney, AI Lead at Google and bestselling author

"At once a fun read and witty primer on the tech and moral quandaries of the blockchain universe. The Oracle is a rare treat."
--Martha Pollack, president, Cornell University

"Blockchain technology is changing the world and creating new myths and legends along the way. If you're not in the thick of it--and even if you are--I can't think of a more entertaining and exhilarating ride than The Oracle."
--Dr. Emin Gün Sirer, founder and CEO, Ava Labs
