Publisher's Summary

The blockchain revolution has arrived and is here to stay!

Remember how fast smart phones evolved, and these days if you do not have one you feel you are missing out? blockchain technology, which fuels cryptocurrency, is a revolution at the same level that smart phones once was! Did you know that a $100 investment in a cryptocurrency could have made you over $400,000?

This audiobook, Blockchain: Uncovering Blockchain Technology, Cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin, and the Future of Money, is an in-depth guide on blockchain technology and cryptocurrency, including Bitcoin. You will be amazed what is uncovered in this audiobook!

Discover all there is to know about the blockchain revolution! Like many, as Bitcoin rose to prominence, I decided to stay on the sidelines. Within a short time, this one cryptocurrency climbed in value to new highs each and every month. I would look at how much a single Bitcoin was trading for and think to myself, "I wish I had invested earlier." Two years ago, I did some research and concluded that there is still money to be made. Today, I'm proud to say that there is still a lot of profit left on the table for those that wish to enter the digital economy.

The intention of this audiobook is to give you a summary on the world of cryptocurrencies and to provide you with all of the basic information that you need to get invested and start to provide a better economic future for you and your family. We are the precipice of a revolution on the way the world treats the monetary policy as a whole. There will be rapid changes in the coming years, and you will want to be an early adopter of what is sure to be a great source of income for the few that decide to learn about the digital economy and get a head start.

Listen and you will discover the secret underground economy arising in the form of cryptocurrencies. The technology might seem complicated; it might appear out of your area of expertise, but the truth is that this niche market is not that difficult to understand. With my explanations, you will have a clear picture of how the digital economy works today, how to profit from it, and where it is going in the future.

In this audiobook, you will find:  

  • An explanation of blockchain technology designed for beginners and written by an expert
  • Tips and strategies to earn real income through blockchain-backed currencies
  • A guide designed around the concept of teaching others how to realize profits form cryptocurrencies
  • A list of the best currencies to invest in, with advice about where to start and how to make the greatest possible profit
  • A detailed explanation of how to create a mining rig, along with everything you need to know about the hardware and components, including the associated costs

Bountiful Information

This was not a genre I usually partake in but with that said this book is a definite resource for myself and up and coming generations. Author Alan Wright does a superb job explaining how the idea of blockchain works. Love the use of the fictional character of Rob to explain how this system works. Author gives pros and cons for industries today such as IBM, Samsung, and Verizon. A definite read because this this is the way of the future.

Uncovered, Unraveled, and Understood!

This is an exploration into a fairly new method of trading, investing, and most importantly ledger transaction security, that for a lot of us laymen’s, are not to familiar with. I was fascinated with this book and blown away.

Mr. Wright begins with the basics, to outfit the reader with the foundation terminology, and concepts that are blockchain. The first few chapters somewhat repeat the base use of blockchain. However Mr. Wright gives this repetitive “varied” explanation, in a wide assortment of easy to understand applications and industry use examples. This gives the purchaser of this book, a solid comprehension inside the potential of, current growing digital-world commerce. Good on you Mr. Wright!

What I liked most about this book was that I was lifted with care into everything blockchain, and guided through its complex network of uses. Unlike other books that just drop you into the thick of things. In hopes that you can swim through it to the other side of grasping the concepts talked about.

This book is a wonderful starting point in delving into the process of “digital transaction”. It even sets you up with the beginning step by step paths, if you’re willing, on starting your own personal exploration into bitcoin and other crypto currencies. On top of this, I was floored at the potential of blockchaining being able to completely take money transactions off the table entirely. Using trade and barter over a highly secure system without a third party is brilliant when it is dealing with overseas deals.

This book is not only for the individual curious in understanding blockchain, and crypto currency. It is also a phenomenal investment resource for the prospective entrepreneur. And this is just book one! What the purchaser must be aware of is that if you do not already have a “basic understanding” of financial commerce or computer network structures and their terminology, you might be a little overwhelmed at first. But only at first. Don’t worry, it won’t be for long. Mr. Wright efficiently explains everything in do time. Just keep going. It all ties together. The book is laid out like this so you won’t get lost in its pages. I am now a fan of blockchain and Mr. Wright has successfully opened my eyes to a very exciting industry of possibilities.

Everything You Need to Know About Blockchain

This book is highly recommended as it explains and covers Blockchain in a way that works really well for technicians and non-technicians alike. This is not a book that just introduces and gives a light covering of the topics, there is much greater depth and discussion of each and every aspect of the Blockchain and how it can be applied to commerce, government, and legal entities. A must get.

Helpful for learning about blockchain

Before listening to this book, I had almost no knowledge of blockchain but gave the book a listen. After listen, I definitely have a better understanding of how blockchain works and the future of it. The book also explained more about cryptocurrency, which I found very useful. Very easy to read and highly comprehensive.

Clear and fascinating

I am grateful to the author for explaining blockchain in such visual and clear language. I was able to successfully use this book as a springboard to a more in depth study of blockchain. It gave me the foundation to comfortably dig in to the more technical aspect of this new technology. The high-level overview was just what I was looking for.

Difficult subject made easy to understand

I came away with a much better understanding of Blockchain and why I should care about it. For the business exec or generally curious this is an important and informative read. This book beautifully clarified a subject matter that I had long ago dismissed as impossible for me to understand! And- it made it clear why it's so important to understand it. Bravo!

Clear and concise

Where does Blockchain: Uncovering Blockchain Technology, Cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin, and the Future of Money rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I enjoyed this book very much! I had heard about blockchain, cryptocurrency, and Bitcoin but didn't fully understand what they meant before listening to this book. I was concerned that the information would be too difficult for a beginner, but the author does a great job with breaking the material into simple terms.

What about Scott Miller’s performance did you like?

Scott Miller has an authoritative, yet calming voice.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was impressed with how Alan Wright first explains that blockchain is similar to a ledger of transactions as that made it very clear and sets up the rest of the information. He then defines many of the terms related to this area, which helped me tremendously. Wright also makes the point that blockchain can be used in dozens of fields and isn't merely important for those in the technology industry. Bitcoin is clearly and carefully described and compared to the currency that we use daily. He also explains whether bitcoin can be a significant investment and discusses its use in businesses. The chapter on cryptocurrency discusses the pros and cons of expanding its use. Alan Wright looks clearly and carefully at a complicated topic and makes it accessible to all readers.

Comprehensive Crypto Guide

This is an extremely clear, step-by-step explanation of Blockchain with numerous simple but relevant examples.
It moves from a general perspective to a more technical one, clearly summarizing the major points made in each chapter. This talks about the future of money in an indirect way. Stay abreast, Listen to this book.

state-of -the art technology

It provides a uniquely accessible take on a mind-bending abstract system and is perfect for those with a casual or budding interest in the field of cryptocurrency. This book is a very fine basic on blockchains and the importance of this software in the future of not only a digital currency but a lot of other sectors as well. It also recommend everyone who has just started and those who already have time in this world to expand their knowledge and develop new ways to explain this state of the art technology. You will find yourself wondering throughout the book how this all really works. I highly recommend this book for those who want to know the truth of bitcoin and blockchain.

simple but full of explanation

The book is focused in explain the blockchain concepts, why they are important, why they are growing in popularity. The potential for blockchain to transform business spans industries and applications. It helps us clearly understand the theme, concisely describing the technology in a logical way, clearly presenting the concepts, and on top of that how everything fits together. Also, explains the new technology can be found online in various places, and you still need the understanding of Bitcoin that the rest of the book provides. I would suggest to those interested in understanding the basics of blockchains and bitcoin.

good start book for blockchain

The book takes a methodical and structured approach which helped me build understanding on the topic step-by-step. The new untangled process provides multiple choices, cost savings and instantaneous availability of an asset or a service to the participating stakeholders. It is an enjoyable and easy reading although a comprehensive exposure to bitcoin and blockchains. This book gives a great explanation as to how bitcoin works, which is something that is limited to other methods of learning about bitcoin. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand bitcoin technology.

generate real-time data

If you are not familiar with blockchain’s potential uses, then this book is a light introduction to the possibilities culminating in a dose of reality at the end. It gave me the foundation to comfortably dig into the more technical aspect of this new technology. It generates real-time data to handle demand and supply, and enable smart, efficient and trusted ways of transacting among participating peers across the manufacturing value chain. Bitcoin is the perfect currency for the dealing of illegal drugs and for gambling, and it will be a while before the mainstream catches on.

easy to understand

The book is clear and easy to understand for the people not too familiar with blockchain. If you don’t know much about blockchain, you can safely listen to this book as a primer. The most important thing to appreciate about the blockchain is that it's designed to be entirely open source so that no one party or group can ever come to dominate it, and thus warp the blockchain to serve its interests. The book gave me enough of a foundation so that I can better understand blockchain strategy discussions at work

merging technology

These technologies play equally essential roles, from both a technical and commercial perspective. A comprehensive understanding of what blockchain is and how it works, as well as insights into how it will affect the future of the industry and of your organization. It can also help clients to accelerate time to market to capture the value of blockchain. It also proposes an innovative model to help industrial organizations internet-enabled manufacturing operations via the concept of the digital twin to participate in the evolving sharing economy.
