And what can you do to get involved?

Blockchain is far more than Bitcoin technology, and even in its infancy, it is taking the world by storm, from major banks to the US Department of Defense. Get in on the disruptive technology and harness its potential today.

Interesting Introduction to Blockchain, Ethereum

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this as a general introduction to Blockchain, Smart Contracts, Investing in Ethereum and FinTech if you don't already know anything about these markets. I enjoyed it and felt I learnt a basic grounding of each sector.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Blockchain: 4-in-1 Bundle?

Blockchain, Smart Contracts, Investing in Ethereum and FinTech are all related sectors, so it was nice to get the books together as a bundle. I enjoyed Investing in Ethereum the most.

What about Jim Donaldson’s performance did you like?

It was fine. He mostly speaks clearly but sounded a bit robotic at times.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

no

Very inaccurate- do not buy!

I work with financial tech. This book is extremely inaccurate and contains numerous misleading claims and false statements. This book is not a serious look at a new technology, it is a one sided, cheer-leader like promoting of blockchain. It often confuses the concepts of bitcoin and block chain and attributes attributes of bitcoin to all block chains. If you trying to learn about block chain, do not read this book, it will just confuse you.

It’s like Rod Stewart as narrator

Seriously?? Why pick a husky reader. It is a good book, reader ruined the audible!

Brutal writing; little to no content

Little to no useful detail. Blockchain propaganda is the only way I can think to describe this. The entire length would be reduced by 75% if you removed the phrase "blockchain technology" from the script.

definitely make this one!

This is not just another blockchain book. It is entertaining and really contextualizes a technical topic that could be presented in a very boring way.This book is a perfect read for people who barely have an idea about blockchain but heard and wanted to learn about it. This book is a must read to understand and have ideas on all the promises of the Blockchain Technology and what is already being done today. If someone asked me what to read to learn more about blockchain I would give them this book.
