Publisher's Summary

The only blockchain book you’ll ever need!

From the best-selling author and Crypto investor Neil Hoffman comes this book which will focus on how the blockchain technology works and how he became a millionaire from crypto in six months

“Blockchain is the first native digital medium for value, just as the internet was the first native digital medium for information.” (Harvard Business Review)

If you don’t know much about cryptocurrency, don’t worry. We all start with nothing.

For those who do commit to learning the art of cryptocurrency trading, you will never look at or enjoy the life same way ever again. 

The purpose of this book is to provide a full perspective of cryptocurrency trading, including how to make money investing in cryptocurrencies and how to know more about the cryptocurrency world. 

So, how can you make insane money with cryptocurrencies?

One word: Altcoins.

Altcoins stand for ‘alternative coins’, or in simple terms, the cryptocurrency that’s NOT bitcoin.

There’s bitcoin and then there’s ‘everything else’.

'Everything else' is what altcoins are.

Invest in altcoins, the right ones, and you can make insane amounts of money and fast.

So, we will discuss all these in detail in this audiobook, including my own story about how I became a crypto millionaire in six months. And we will show you how you can do it as well.

“We've got a really big bet on the blockchain, that is some of the most disruptive technology we've seen since electricity. When that starts to come, I think there's going to be a host of new models that come out of that...that's where we probably get excited about what's the next bet.” (Jeff Schumacher, founder and Chief Executive Officer, BCG Digital Ventures)

“So my view’s quite clear. I believe cryptocurrencies, bitcoin is the first example, I believe they’re going to change the world.” (Richard Brown, Executive Architect at IBM)

Final Words: Even if you think you know everything discussed here, give this book a shot. It's an informative and entertaining listen, and you may pick up some valuable tools and new ways of thinking you've never heard of before.

DISSAPOINTMENT

If you are someone who knows absolutely nothing not even the basics of cryptocurrency or have never heard of it before then this book might be good. Otherwise don’t even buy it. It’s worthless.

A Must-Read For Anyone Interested In Blockchain

Short and straight to the point. This book intelligently covers just enough details to be incredibly useful to someone who is new to the blockchain and it's useful applications. For me, this book answered many basic questions and helped to lay a good foundation to further my interest in these new technologies.

This book is exactly what I wanted to be.

I must premise this by saying, I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review. This book is exactly what I wanted to be. Concise, but also a complete overview of the history of "digital money", Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, smart contracts and the future of money. I came to this book with a basic understanding, and feel like it filled in all the gaps in my knowledge about cryptocurrencies. I can see this book being a great primer for anyone interested in getting a complete overview of Bitcoin, Ethereum, and blockchain technologies.

Good understanding of current Mania.

The last chapter deals with the technical part; I recommend to see other visual materials to grasp the concept. Lastly, if your level of English is good, you can increase the speed. This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

I appreciate that effort!

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

Good book for beginers.

This is a good starting point to understand Blockchain. By no means this is a practitioners handbook.

it is very for beginners and half the time

it is not 5 hours. in the middle (around 3) it says that this book is for entertainment and should not be taken seriously. Then it starts again from the begining. It doesnt mention false knowledge rather than very high level on how it works and all its aspects

Fantastic and informative too.

Fantastic book. Lots of valuable information in a concentrated package. Interesting ideas and concepts as we move into the future and new markets of money in business. Great book that provides both a good foundation on Blockchain (and what it could mean for business) and also an interesting vision on what will come in the next decade.

New Trending Currency

The blockchain technology is the new trending currency in the internet right now for it has been introduced as a mode of payment. I do agree that most of us have taken interest to understand this kind of concept of the technology and how it is used to secure cryptocurrencies and transactions made using these one.

A good high level explanation

A good high level explanation of blockchain and distributive ledger technology. Taking the technology concepts and applying them existing markets makes this book well worth the investment. Even though I already had knowledge of all the blockchain basics, this book provides more details of how the concepts provide the benefits promoted by the industry.
