We’ve heard a great deal in the past few months about cryptocurrencies and how they are impacting the world. This audiobook is not about that. It is a close look at the technology that these new currencies are based on. Through this audiobook, you will begin to understand how they work and why they are having such a major impact on our society.

Blockchain technology goes much further than the idea of transferring money. Its ability to adapt to nearly every type of industry and be used in a myriad of ways is a whole new phenomenon that everyone should be trying to understand. As you listen to this audiobook, you will learn:

  • Why our current system is due for a change
  • The original intent of blockchain technology
  • Why it is being embraced by so many people
  • The mechanics of the blockchain
  • Its future prospects and how it will impact society
  • Alternative uses for the blockchain
  • Blockchain mining
  • A history of Bitcoin
  • What’s waiting for us in the future

We live in pretty exciting times when things are about to change in big ways. From this audiobook, you can begin to decide where you stand on these new changes. You will understand the background of a revolution that is being fought not with weapons of destruction but with computer codes and algorithms. It won’t be fought on a battlefield, but it will duke it out with the old system of things in cyberspace.

It is something that will eventually affect each and every one of us, so we need to understand what’s really happening with blockchain technology so we can decide where we stand on the debate. Listen to this audiobook now so you can begin to understand just how much our world is about to change and prepare for this next step into a whole new and modern world where the power is put into the hands of the people.

Thank you for all of your hard work

This course is geared for novices and serves as an excellent introduction to all areas of crypto currency investing and usage. The instructor is quite enthusiastic about investments in general, which contributes to the course's success. If you're just getting started with crypto or investing in general, you'll find some wonderful ideas and suggestions here. However, this course can only serve as a beginning step; much more learning will be required after that. Thank you for all of your hard work and excellent information!

A well-written and well narrated audiobook

In this guidebook, the author 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 put it another way, a smart contract is a computer code that enables the exchange of anything with value, such as information, property, shares, and money. These contracts will operate on the blockchain and, once certain circumstances are satisfied, will be able to complete the tasks specified in the code on their own. 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.

Through this audiobook, you'll be able to learn everything you need to know. Thanks to the author for a great audiobook guide at a very reasonable price! Overall, this is a well-written and well narrated audiobook that has brilliant information.

The book is having great content

The book is having great content. I got a great overview of the course but would of liked more examples with the training, it felt more like an overview but still a great informative course. Going a bit slowly for my taste with a lot of repetitions, but I like it in overall. I would definitely recommend it

You can learn about Ethereum's consensus algorithm

You can learn about Ethereum's consensus algorithm, which improves its usefulness by utilizing the job proof: a process common to all digital currencies. Another topic that will pique your interest as a cryptocurrency enthusiast is the discussion of Ethereum virtual machines.

Great course with comprehensive explanations and strategies. One of the main benefits of using digital currencies is that you can remain anonymous on these networks, making it harder for others to track your transactions. However, the United States government is setting up laws that would make it a requirement for the digital currency exchange sites to report information of all users, which would take away some of this anonymity that you are looking for.

It is important that you understand the laws for digital currencies in your country of residence. Technically anyone can get on a digital currency and use it, no matter where they are located throughout the world. However, if there are specific rules that prevent this in your country of origin, it is not a good idea to try and use the currency. The best thing that you can do is take a look at some of the rules for your country of use before getting started. Most countries are fine with you using these currencies so that will not be an issue, but some do have limitations.

In addition, you need to make sure that you understand the tax implications of using these coins, especially if you are making a profit from investing them. As long as you follow the rules in your own country though, you should be fine. Very knowledgeable and have some practical steps to put in place to help me. Every section uncovers what I was thinking in the previous one! All questions, holes or optimizations I was thinking of were all addressed, making me feel very content about the fullness of the course.

Another topic that will pique your interest

Another topic that will pique your interest as a cryptocurrency enthusiast is Ethereum's virtual machines. The EVM is a device that transmits programming instructions, tests transaction statuses, and executes code to create predictable outputs. Ethereum has been designed in such a way that other innovations can interact with it, making it better suited to the needs of today's ever-growing market. Don't be intimidated if you're new to the crypto world. You need not be concerned since this book will offer you with all of the information you require to be successful on the market.

This lesson was very fascinating and easy to follow. Furthermore, the instructor thoroughly and concisely explains the materials. Working with the blockchain may appear to be difficult at first, but it is actually rather simple. In most circumstances, it won't make a difference to you how this system operates. It's there, and it protects your data safe online, but you won't have to do anything to make it function. So, if it appears to be extremely complex, it isn't a big concern if you don't grasp what's going on. The miners will begin their work as the blocks you complete prepare to be added to the network's main blockchain. These miners are in charge of assigning unique codes to the blockchain in order to keep transactions and the data contained inside them secure.

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.

All of these transactions can be handled using this technology. This is due to the fact that the technology will take in all of the transaction information and then transfer it between the two parties extremely immediately. After that, you'll be able to go through and look at the ledger to see where the money was sent to, as well as any other network transactions that have occurred, without the worry of personal information being exposed. It provides helpful and insightful information in an easily consumable way.

The instructor is engaging and knowledgeable

The instructor is engaging and knowledgeable. I felt that he was too slow for but Audible gives the user the ability to speed up the Audio. I had the rest of the course at 1.5X and it was fine. Loved the course.
