The best audio-book for blockchain

It is the best audio-book of how blockchain is explained to everyone even for people who do not master many of the technological and mathematical concepts. I recommend everyone who has just started and those who already have time in this world to expand their knowledge and develop new ways to explain this disruptive technology.

It's a great listen

This is not a technical treatise on Blockchain.if you're looking to understanding the potential of the blockchain landscape. It's packed full of interesting tidbits and insights. It was carefully researched and explained... and I appreciate that effort!

All about bitcoin.

The books are factually right without bogging the reader with unnecessary detail. It is also very recent and time is important in everything bitcoin-related. What was true three months ago it may not be of any influence today as the market forces form public opinion and investors.

I loved the book.

The book describes bitcoin and why it is such a revolutionary technology. It goes on to investigate the identity of Bitcoin's creator. The author is clearly excited about this technology and it can't help but rub off on the listener. A must-listen for anyone interested in currency/technology and the future of money.

I suggest buying them together.

I started with Inventing Bitcoin which helped give me foundation. Next, I listen to the Bitcoin Standard. If you don't own either, I suggest buying them together.

Bitcoin technology.

The Audiobook ade the technical concept behind bitcoin easier to understand. The details that go into the block help grasp the benefits and limitations of bitcoin technology. The examples of the applications of bitcoin technology in various industries outside of finance and Bitcoin were very helpful. This helps to grasp the scope of the reach of the new promising technology.

Extraordinary audio-book!

An extremely listen to the introduction to blockchain. Aside from a few minor editorial oversights an extremely listen to an audio-book on the fundamentals of this important technology. The author did a very good job of avoiding being overly technical.

The author explained this audio-book brilliantly

Short but sweet overview of the blockchain. I had literally zero understanding of how blockchain works prior to this listen to this, but can now hold my own in a conversation, and know which pieces interest me more, so I can narrow additional listen and research to those parts.

I adore this audio-book

I liked very much the institutional and social aspects of the distributed ledger technology. It was a surprise for me to understand that coins do not exist, not even in digital file format. The deep explanation of hashing is also very useful.

Love it

It teaches you how to invest and start a business using cryptocurrency. It explains how traditional systems work and the differences between them and these new systems as well as the pros and cons of everything. You learn about the power of banks. It is worthwhile and thought-provoking listen.

Excellent audiobook

A good summary of 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.
