Confusing

For something that is for beginners, I would expect it to be more explanatory, doesn't explain how a computer creates a transaction. The narration is horrible, I am assuming it is an automated voice, because it is hard to understand some of the words and it has absolutely no personality.

Very informative

This story was very informative, but the narration, in my opinion, was a little weird. His pronunciation of certain words, and the way he talks and annunciates his sentences isn't normal. But it's still understandable.

Bitcoin Explanation of Digital Revolution

A very informative book on Bitcoin technology and its potential effect on the global society. A digital 'new world order' that may be more equitable to the powerless. As with any new thing, the potential good, intent can always be hijacked, by the bad elements of society. A great listen.
