    Would you listen to Blockchain: The Essential Guide to Understanding and Using Blockchain Technology for Beginners again? Why?

    Where the future is heading and the accountability and security that blockchain presents is something that is quite memorable.

    "Four Stars!!!!"

    When it comes to the cost of all of the additional computer resources as well as the electricity that these resources consume, the cost is enough to be probative in numerous scenarios. The estimated costs of each confirmed bitcoin transaction is said to be at roughly what it would cost to run the average household for 36 hours.
    Highly recommended!!!
    Just grab this book guys it is really awesome and i loved it

    This books does its best to break down the complicated concept of blockchain. From the basic use of a bitcoin wallet to buy a cup of coffee, to running a bitcoin marketplace with hundreds of thousands of transactions, you'll get a grasp of it all. I loved it! I liked that it went over the drawbacks and advantages of blockchain, listed who should and should not use it, as well as the list of personal and business uses and advantages of it. Overall, this book is well written and easy to understand. I highly recommended.

    awesome guide,the author had explained well.....Presents a very wide perspective of what blockchain is and where it can possibly be used. Although some of the content could be squeezed into a smaller edition. However it does a good job at making sure the listener understand the underlying concept and has more to go on.HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.......

    "lovable guide"

    excellent book.......The first chapters gave a good overview on blockchain (and some other technologies ). This is however more a marketing book on blockchain than a practical guide, e.g. a lot of comparisons and assumptions are made that blockchain will develop in the same way how the Internet developped but it is not entirely clear why that would be the case.ils worthfull.........
