Very good introduction

This book was a very good introduction to crypto mining the only aspect that was not covered that I think, at least should’ve been touched on, was a post-market cap consequence.

Level headed, Concise, very informative

And an interesting listen. It is best if you start out being a little familiar with the very basics of bitcoin and hashing though. After listening to this I feel very equipped to get my foot in the door mining a currency. It's as current as 2018 which is also helpful. I will listen to it again.

Excellent audible

Excellent, informative, and balanced. As an experienced Bitcoin user, it was a great listen/refresher - but it would also serve as an excellent introduction for anybody wanting to sift through the junk out there in the mainstream media to really get to the (accurate) point about Bitcoin.

Extremely well researched

The combination of historical background information coupled with the contemporary state of the blockchain and bitcoin world is incredible. I loved this book! It's extremely well researched and written in a way most anyone can understand. Hard to believe we won't all be using some form of digital currency on a blockchain system in the near future - opportunities abound!

Wonderful information

Great book, recommended if you don't know anything about bitcoin and blockchain and want to get a quick and entertaining introduction to this new technology. My only criticism is that some chapters are a little too long and it lacks more technical information.

Great concepts

There is a good progression in the book building on concepts explained previously, For a technical book, this can be quite challenging. The author has a humorous side as well when he describes the colorful characters of this new frontier.

Appreciate audible

The authors have created a very valuable treatment of blockchain and Bitcoin technology. I have had many experiences in computing technologies over the last few decades, and I've learned to recognize important innovations as well as to appreciate lucid timely tutorials. This book is a great exemplar of that kind of important work. I recommend it without reservation.

Lots of technical ideas

For someone with little background knowledge, like myself, I found this book to be very easy listening and interesting. You can get general technical ideas and of course, the economic concepts that are the main issues regarding cryptocurrencies.

Plenty of information!


Every aspect of bitcoin and other currencies and the blockchain advantages covered so thoroughly! Plus all the history surrounding the creators and miners and then all the improvements made by legions of devoted coders. And plenty of banking history as well. He writes well and tells a really thrilling story.
