      "Highly recommended!!!"

      Jeff Reed explains Blockchain’s history, basics, its historical development and applications.

      In addition, the author mentions Bitcoin Blockchain alternatives like Ethereum, Namecoin, Ntx and presents the benefits of Blockchain 2.0 in business negotiations and its future in health care, insurance, real estate and education.

      It is very informative and I recommend it.

      "This book gave me more justifiable Notes!!!"

      This is a great piece of technology!
      But I really had to do an extra research to understand more what this blockchain really does. But the book is really informative and I actually learned a lot.
      I didn’t know this kind of technology exists not until I found this book.
      This is really an interesting listen.
      I'd definitely recommend this book.

      "Decent Book for every one of us!"
      If you could sum up Blockchain in three words, what would they be?

      Interesting information helpful.


      Who was your favorite character and why?

      N/A


      What does Jim Donaldson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

      I am a total beginner when it comes to understanding the benefit of blockchain. That’s why, I am glad that books like this one has been written.


      Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

      The contents are well organized and I am finding the explanation suitable for those who have less to no knowledge about blockchain.


      Any additional comments?

      am thankful to the author since this guide is informatively good. I am totally recommending this to those who are interested in learning about this transaction database.

      "Blockchain technology for future life.."

      The future of the financial world and currency system is changing in the 21st century. With the wave of online banking transactions, and the evolution of the bitcoin industry, new and innovative products are now being introduced to the market place.


      Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

      This is where Blockchain is introduced to the world of commerce and finance. I must admit that I was not aware of this new financial instrument until listening this informative book on the subject.

      "Fantastic to listen!!!love it."
      Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

      Sure i will
      For those, looking to get the nuts and bolts of Blockchain, this isn't it. The book shares a very high level concept of blockchain, its pros and cons and leaves it at that.


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

      No reactions towards it..


      Any additional comments?

      This is good enough if you want to sound smart at a cocktail party; if you intend to do sonething with this knowledge, this will not give you the tools.
