    The Tip Of The Iceberg

    A passion is delivered through this mysterious "New Idea" of doing business. Perhaps not yet published as other similar ideas however necessary for one to come to terms.

    Fantastic to listen!!!love it.

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

    Sure i will
    For those, looking to get the nuts and bolts of Blockchain, this isn't it. The book shares a very high level concept of blockchain, its pros and cons and leaves it at that.

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No reactions towards it..

    Any additional comments?

    This is good enough if you want to sound smart at a cocktail party; if you intend to do sonething with this knowledge, this will not give you the tools.

    New way of earning money!

    Excellent and informing book! I've heard about Blockchain or crypto currency, but I didn't really know anything about it. I was so curious that I decided to grab this book. After listening this book, I understand more about Blockchain, what it is and how it works and it's benefits. It lists a lot of potential implementation for this technology. I like that it's easy to listen and comprehensive. Worth downloading!!!
