great material for advanced research on Blockchain

I'm a writer and had an assignment about blockchain and fintech. I would say I've already read a bit of material on the topic and this was a great book to add to my knowledge and brought some weight to my article. Would definitely recommend this for non-beginners looking to beef up their knowledge about the topic.

Very inaccurate- do not buy!

I work with financial tech. This book is extremely inaccurate and contains numerous misleading claims and false statements. This book is not a serious look at a new technology, it is a one sided, cheer-leader like promoting of blockchain. It often confuses the concepts of bitcoin and block chain and attributes attributes of bitcoin to all block chains. If you trying to learn about block chain, do not read this book, it will just confuse you.

Brutal writing; little to no content

Little to no useful detail. Blockchain propaganda is the only way I can think to describe this. The entire length would be reduced by 75% if you removed the phrase "blockchain technology" from the script.

learn all about financial technologies in the 21st

It was very informative to listen these books. Very interesting perspective on the upcoming technology that is going to revolutionize everything. The blockchain is associated with cryptocurrency, the estimated network, necessary for performing transactions using bitcoins. It is profitable to trade in this system. You can learn all about financial technologies in the 21st century.
