Publisher's Summary

Blockchain is a database that is truly on the cutting edge of technology. So much so that its true potential has not been discovered. Nevertheless, all types of analysts are already declaring that it is the most important technology since the Internet. If you are not already familiar with blockchain, these claims might sound excessive, but you'll learn why blockchain is likely to change the world in your lifetime. The following chapters will discuss the ins and outs of blockchain so you can move forward with a clear understanding of the technology and how to possibly put it to use in your business.

First, you will learn about the origins of blockchain and how it is tied to the history of cryptocurrency. Next, you will learn about the inner workings of blockchain and what makes it so useful as a decentralized database. From there you will learn why you might want to use blockchain for your database needs, as well as the reasons why it might not be right for you now.

Here is a preview of what you'll learn:

  • What is blockchain
  • How it works
  • Benefits of blockchain
  • Limitations of blockchain
  • Blockchain applications
  • The smart contract basics beyond blockchain
  • And much more

Glad it was short ...

Felt like I was listening to a high school public speaking student reading a college term paper to me and calling it a speech.

Educational and informative

It was able to hold my attention but if you aren't nerdy at all you'd probably be bored to death. There is nothing entertaining about this book!

This book was really interesting.

This book was really interesting. The author does a great job of breaking down some fairly technical information in to a format that is easily digestible. The author also does a great job of explaining how the technology that supports bitcoin ties in to the traditional banking industry. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to to learn more about Blockchain.

Very educational

Very informational and educational on cryptocurrancy. Worth buying and learning where the future of money is heading.I always wanted to learn about other methods of payments people use and this audio book was helpful in understanding the alternative methods. I was looking for more how-it-works info but it had enough to make me understand at a basic level and the history and commentary was entertaining.

Good overview to start with.

I choose to give this 5 stars because I knew nothing about the subject and after completion of the book which I borrowed from my sister. I fully understand the concept, due to the author's analogies and very clear illustrations.Very simple but with the holistic approach - this guide will explain you main features and will direct to further research. Thanks!
