Publisher's Summary

Book 2 of 2 in the Bitcoin Series.

Bitcoin is a household name that everyone wants to talk about now. Everyone is excited about how much this currency has grown in the past few years, and many people watch the market as they are watching their daily news. While there is a lot of excitement that is around Bitcoin and how it is doing, many people do not understand what this currency is or how it works. This guidebook will take some time to look at Bitcoin and discuss everything that you need to know about the network, whether you are looking to purchase things, send money, receive money, or invest on the network.

There are a lot of exciting things to learn about Bitcoin, and this guidebook will take some time to talk about them.

We’ve heard a great deal in the past few months about cryptocurrencies and how they are impacting the world. This book is not about that. It is a close look at the technology that these new currencies are based on. Through this book you will begin to understand how they work and why they are having such a major impact on our society.

Blockchain technology goes much further than the idea of transferring money. Its ability to adapt to nearly every type of industry and be used in a myriad of ways is a whole new phenomenon that everyone should be trying to understand.

We live in pretty exciting times when things are about to change in big ways. From the pages of this book, you can begin to decide where you stand on these new changes. You will understand the background of a revolution that is being fought not with weapons of destruction but with computer codes and algorithms. It won’t be fought on a battlefield, but it will duke it out with the old system of things in cyberspace.

It is something that will eventually affect each and every one of us, so we need to understand what’s really happening with Blockchain technology so we can decide where we stand on the debate.

Braden Lee writes systematically and carefully

The author succeeds admirably in giving the hearer the foundations to understand the key aspects of Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, blockchain, and related developments. The book is particularly masterful in unpacking how cryptocurrencies and blockchain relate to the mechanics of financial transactions and banking. Unlike most authors on this topic, Braden Lee writes systematically and carefully. Yet he still manages to convey the excitement that has generated so much interest in the potential of these technologies.

The author does an excellent job

Despite being in the industry for a number of years, concisely describing what blockchain technology is or how it can be applied is still a challenge. The author does an excellent job in clearly laying out concepts and how everything fits together. This is one of the few credible books I suggest when people ask ‘Where can I learn about bitcoin?’. I’ve been in the space for quite some time and I still learned from The Basics of Bitcoins and Blockchains.

My soulmate once told me this was a great guide,

My soulmate once told me this was a great guide, which gave him plenty of insights on both bitcoin and ethereum. so I thought like buying and learning some fundamentals too. and well, he was so right, this set of audiobooks is definitely a more than superb way to help to equip you with all the knowledge you need before getting started in crypto-market.

Everyone has heard of blockchain

Everyone has heard of blockchain but few people know what it is. When you read this audiobook, you will know enough to have an idea of what blockchains are, what they can be used for, and what 'mining' is. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to know about the subject, as blockchains are going to be in just about everything in the very near future.

Just hear your book. It’s superb. After two years

Just hear your book. It’s superb. After two years in the space and hearing many books yours is my favourite in terms of the insightful and sequential steps you take to explain a new, novel and difficult concept. I liked the approachable language to some pretty complex concepts. The discourse in the media just skips across the topic but this gets under the bonnet and open your eyes to a world far bigger than just crypto currencies.

Very well written and laid out.

Blockchain technology has been called the greatest innovation since the internet. This technology is being used in ways that have implications for central banking that span all the functions that we have. Very nice read to understand the blockchain. Very simple language. This audiobook explains what is blockchain, its advantages, disadvantages, actual market segments where the blockchain would be used in the future and in the last technical details about the technology.

Highly recommended!

Writing a book about cryptocurrencies and blockchain—and I've know because I've done it—is difficult for two main reasons. One is that it requires mastery of several unrelated bodies of knowledge: finance, cryptography, and law for starters. The second is that it's nearly impossible to divorce oneself from the hype. Things change quickly, and it's hard to separate out the enduring from the ephemeral. No one has been able to pull off a clear, comprehensive, dispassionate introduction to the phenomenon for a general audience...until now.

I really enjoyed this as I'm close to this area

I really enjoyed this as I'm close to this area professionally and needed to be able to ask the right questions. I tried on line courses and video's but they went into the weeds fast and rely on jargon and bluster. This is different simple but clear language, clear context around the development of money and exchange. The most important point is the language and voice the author a clear chatty style that reminds me of having a coffee rather than struggling through a lecture.

Excellent audiobook!

Excellent audiobook! A good summary of bitcoin and blockchain applications, along with a brief discussion of its underlying algorithms. The audiobook has a good mix of business and technical views. A nice read for those who already have a slight knowledge of Bitcoins and the like.

Beautifully simple explanation.

As well as a clear, beautifully simple explanation of blockchain, It also uses his unique style of simplifying without dumbing down to explain all the areas related to blockchains such as banking, cash, and payments. A great book to understand the Basics of Blockchains but also a great way to understand the context and the importance of the technologies.

Both author and narrator has done a fantastic job

Both author and narrator has done a fantastic job of explaining the subject simply in this very readable introduction to the technology behind cryptocurrencies, the specific implementations used by some well known names (Bitcoin, Ethereum), and the implications on their robustness, value, liquidity, etc. I was looking for a decent introduction to these primary concepts, and I was delighted to have picked up this book.
