Great summary of key facets and concerns

I‘m just starting with Audible. Giving feedback in any way positive and also negative helps the instructor and interested persons to get a glimpse of what they get in the course. It is a good idea to switch out the Bitcoin address that you are using on occasion. If you are really active on this network, it is not a good idea to keep the same address all the time. This will just make it easier for someone to find you because they can trace all your transactions back to one point. In fact, the developer of Bitcoin suggested that people who used this network would change their address after each transaction to keep things safe. While you do not need to go that far, you can consider changing it on a regular basis, especially if you are someone who uses the network often. It is also a good idea to never share the information about your Bitcoin accounts with other people. This can include any passwords that you are using and the address of your account. This should only be shared with the people who will receive money from you. Otherwise, you are risking yourself and your identity in the process. The whole point for some people, of getting on one of these networks and trying to use Bitcoin is that they want to make sure that they are anonymous and that no one can figure out who they are. They are tired of having to worry that their credit card information or other personal information will be stolen by someone and used against them. There are countless times when we listen to the news and hear that one store or another had a big breach and all the personal data was at risk. Even Equifax, a big credit reporting company has fallen under attack, leaving millions of people exposed. These issues can take years to fix up. You may never be able to get things fixed depending on how the work and how much damage did they cause. While online shopping may be convenient and may make life a lot easier, it can take years for these things to clear up and it is often up to debate whether that convenience is worth the price. A great course. As an investor you never stop learning. This course filled some of the gaps in my knowledge base and refreshed others. I like the course, it goes into just enough detail to explain the concepts without being dry. As you will see as we go through this guidebook, there are a lot of ways that you can make money when you are working on the Bitcoin network. We will look at some of the best options that you can go with when you can invest in the network, but before we get too far into that, we will take a look at the first method of earning money on this network known as mining. While there are a lot of benefits to the mining process, both for the miner and for the whole network, and while it can sound really appealing, it is important to note that it is hard work and you will need to spend some money to get started and have some technical background to make it happen. However, if you are successful, you will find that mining in Bitcoin can be really profitable. You can earn 25 Bitcoin for being successful and for helping to keep the Bitcoin network safe and secure.

Economics + Technology

I found this course completely interesting & understandable. In addition, the instructor explains the materials profoundly and straight to the point. Working on the blockchain may seem a little bit complicated at first, but it is really not so bad. In most cases, it really will not matter all that much to you how this system works. It is there and it keeps your information safe online, but it will work without you having to do anything. So, if it seems overly complicated, then it is not a big deal if you do not understand what is going on with it. As the blocks that you complete are getting ready to join the networks main blockchain, the miners will start doing their work. These miners are responsible for assigning unique codes to the blockchain to keep transactions, and the information that is contained inside of them safe. There are some rules that miners will need to follow to get this done, such as the new code needs to be dependent on the code that is already found in the main blockchain, but it helps to ensure that no one can mess around with your currency. So, what does this mean for you? What it means is that you can use the blockchain to complete transactions throughout the world and it does not matter where the seller is located in relations to you. You can receive money from others if you would like. You can even use the blockchain to help yourself invest online. This technology can work for all of these transactions. This is because the technology will take in all the information for the transactions and then move it between the two parties almost instantly. Then, when it is all done, you will be able to go through and look at the ledger to see where the money was transferred to, or to look at any of the transactions that have occurred on the network, without the worry of personal information being exposed. It provides helpful and insightful information in an easily consumable way.

Digital gold for a thriller

Bitcoin is cryptocurrency, which became a digital gold. The origins of bitcoin belong to the people associated with libertarian views. The aim was to create a new kind of money that would be free from the state - dependent on the printing of money and monopolistic charges of the banking cartel. Launching a revolution similar to Uber, which changed the taxi market, and Airbnb, which affected the hotel market. Bahl Explained it in simple as possible. Made it easy to understand

Don't let the banksters win. Educate yourself.

This course clearly has some good ideas and real research behind it. I appreciate the actionable advice. Let us look at how this can work for you. In February 2017, the value of Bitcoin was around 2500 a coin. If you purchased Let us look at how this can work for you. In February 2017, the value of Bitcoin was around 2500 a coin. If you purchased As the market looks right now, it is likely that the value will continue to grow over time. You can still get into the market and as long as you pay attention to what is going on in the market, you could make a lot of profit with very little work involved. It pretty much just involves an occasional look at the market and at the news and you are set. Of course, you need to pay attention to the wallet that you are using. Since you are not planning on using the coins for at least a few months, it is probably not a good idea to go out there and keep it in your online wallet. Instead, choose to go with hardware storage or cold storage to ensure that a hacker is not able to get hold of your coins. The problem is that a blockchain platform needs to be developed to handle all of this so that these industries can get all of the benefits. In this guidebook, spent a little bit of time talking about Bitcoin and how it all works. Also mentioned the great blockchain technology that all can use as well. This blockchain technology is relatively new since it was released at the same time as Bitcoin, but there are so many neat things that you will be able to do with it. Most people do not fully understand how this technology will work and may feel that it is the exact same thing as Bitcoin, but this is not true. They are two separate items, and while blockchain helps to keep Bitcoin running, it is a platform that can run on its own. Creating these blockchain platforms can take a lot of time and can be expensive. There are some developers who can create them, but they need to have some funding to help them get it all done. As an investor, you can provide them with the funds that they need to get results. You can work on creating a contract with the developer that will allow them to get the funding they need to start but will also ensure that you can get your money back and more at the end of it all. To keep it simple, a smart contract is a term that is used to describe a computer code that will enable the exchange of anything with value, including information, property, shares, and money. These contracts will run on the blockchain, and they will be able to accomplish the tasks placed in the code all on their own, once conditions are met. Many people enjoy this contract because it will eliminate any need for a third party or a middleman to help out. This helps to save money, time, and can even cut out potential conflicts of interest. Good things to know, but I've already learned about most of the things they're going over. As a developer, you can make some money of these smart contracts. You simply need to create your own template or be available to create a custom smart contract for your customers. You can charge a small fee, which is usually way less than someone would have to pay to the lawyer or other third party participants, so they will be happy to work with you.

Highly stimulating but effortlessly digestible

While this one is reserved for the Ethereum network, it is possible for you to invest some of your money in the blockchain. We spent a little bit of time talking about this blockchain earlier, looking at how it helps to maintain the transparency and the trust that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are looking for to keep users on the network. Without the blockchain, these digital currencies would have no changes of being successful at all. With that being said, the blockchain is a really powerful piece of technology that can take on so much more than just what it does for digital currencies. There are so many diferent industries that would be able to benefit from this kind of technology. The problem is that a blockchain platform needs to be developed to handle all of this so that these industries can get all of the benefits. Creating these blockchain platforms can take a lot of time and can be expensive. There are some developers who can create them, but they need to have some funding to help them get it all done.

Evolution in action?

Just finished the first part only so far so good! Easy to understand. Excited to finish the whole lecture. In November of 2017, the UK government began a search to learn more about digital currencies, with the main focus of these currencies being a payment method and not as an investment source. After receiving a good amount of replies about how these currencies functioned, the government released a document that was meant to not only summarize the submissions that they received, but it also outlined the views of the government and what they planned to do in concerns of these digital currencies. Some of the things that were released in this document include: 1. The UK government intended to make regulations to prevent money laundering through digital currency exchanges and to prevent any criminal use of these networks. 2. The government will work to create some voluntary standards to protect the consumers who are using these digital currency networks. The government would look more into digital currencies and the technology that comes with them to find how it can be beneficial to others. It is estimated that the government will increase their funding of researching this technology up to ten million pounds to make this happen. Basically, there are going to be a few things that are going to happen in the United Kingdom when it comes to digital currencies. First, the UK government is going to work to prevent any criminal activities from occurring with these digital currencies. This is meant to protect the government from individuals who try to hide their money for tax purposes and can help the citizens to stay safe when using this kind of network. However, the government is not trying to close these digital currency networks. They still want people to use the networks, legally and ethically. In addition, the UK government recognizes that the technology behind Bitcoin and other digital currencies is very valuable and can have a variety of uses. Because of this, the government is working on funding to learn more about this technology and how it can be used to benefit many diferent industries and groups. This guidebook took some time to talk about Ethereum and all the diferent parts that come with it. Whether you are just interested in learning more about Ethereum, you would like to become a developer on this platform, or you are interested in investing, you will find that there is a place for you on the Ethereum network. From learning about the blockchain to creating your own smart contracts and more, you will find something that you can enjoy with the Ethereum network. Excellent! Organized in a progressive step by step format, well explained and easily comprehended. Comprehensive, detailede course. The knowledge and skills gained from this program can be applied to practical economic use from day one. Congratulations on this outstanding course offering! Finally, if you found this book useful in any way, a review on Audible is always appreciated!

Great instructor

He went into depth into everything we needed. All I ask if he could to be able to explain ways we can learn about the new upcoming cryptocurrencies. Most websites or articles tend to waste time and by the time we read the right one it is too late. So if it is possible can he please make a slide of where we can get our research. Concepts are neatly explained and to the good level of clarity in a great simplistic manner.

This is worth of 1000 euro

This audio book is more for beginners as a very good intro into all aspects related to investing and using crypto currency. Instructor is very passionate about the investments in general which makes the course great. If you are are starting your investment journey in crypto or in general, you will surely find some great ideas and advice, however this course can only serve as the first step and much more learning will need to take place after this. Thanks for great content and hard work!
