Publisher's Summary

Did you know blockchain is directly responsible for the furry of investment that surrounded Bitcoin, which saw a maximum price of over $20,000 at year’s end of 2017 and $7,000 in mid 2018?

While you may not have heard much about blockchain technology yet, you can rest assured that the certain key industries already have blockchain fever and it's spreading.

2018 is going to be the year that blockchain comes out from the shadows in its own right, which means if you want to be on the cutting edge of the next big thing then this is the book you have been waiting for.

So what is blockchain?

A blockchain is a decentralized database that works as a distributed ledger. Its unique construction makes it extremely secure while allowing for a virtually unlimited number of users to interact with it at once. While this might not sound like all that much, the possibilities that this technology creates, especially in the financial sector, are virtually limitless. The secret here is that blockchains allow for strangers to conduct transaction with complete trust in the other party, without the need for any type of middle man.

Blockchain is being called the most important new technology since the creation of the Internet.

In Decemeber 2017, Bitcoin hit a record high of $19,700 and then dropped to an average of $6,500 in July 2018.

Within the short period of 2017 to 2018, there were many people that made a lot money while many others went the alternate route. The latter happened because many were jumping on the wagon, chasing the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow without knowing what they were doing. With any investment, there are key principles, strategies, and techniques to properly get the job done. If you are looking for these keys to the cryptocurrency castle, then Cryptocurrency: Ultimate Beginner’s Guild is your key-maker guide to the world of cryptocurrencies.

easy to understand

I like how the book compared Blockchain to a Lego set. Makes everything easier to understand. I'd definitely suggest listening to this book even when you are not familiar with the terms used in the Blockchain.

I bought some crypto recently. It has done nothing but goes down and it's very volatile. But hey, if you understand more about it, it maybe is easier to jump in at the right moment.
