There is a lot of material on the web.But to learn about the history, the current state and future of Bitcoin and other Crypto currencies, the Blockchain technology, Digital payments and Smart Contracts and to put it all in a broad perspective, this audio book by the author is excellent. It is also a very interesting listen with stories about people and personalities involved in this movement. This was a perfect audio book to begin my sabbatical leave.

This is the best introduction to blockchain, with plenty of depth too. It's clear and easy to listen, without being dumbed down. I love that each idea is built up from scratch, the author doesn't assume any prior knowledge in finance or tech.

Amazing audiobook!

I am a long-time fan of this, having followed his blog `bits on the block` in the early days. It has a flair to always been able to expertly finesse hard concepts into easily digestible bits. I learned about bitcoins at a time where most people are either spilling all jargon on the technical prowess or extrapolating on a future world with no central authorities - nothing down to earth like how it puts it. Whether you are interested in the mechanism behind blockchain (what is a blockchain) or you are trying to comprehend the recent interests in crypto-currencies (why it may be a game-changer), then look no further: This is the audiobook you should get your hands on.

Fantastic audiobook!

I worked with it for over a year at R3 and he has a great knack for explaining technical ideas to a lay audience, without using jargon. This audiobook is a gentle introduction to all the concepts related to cryptocurrencies and blockchains and is easy to listen to and engaging. The audiobook is well researched - I've been in the industry for 4 years and still learned some new facts!

The history and future of money

Explains why Bitcoin can be hard currency. Choice by countries is another matter. Probably, this sort of currency is on the way, but control will not surely be privatized.
