Summary

Heard of bitcoin? Blockchain is actually far more than bitcoin. In fact, blockchain is hailed as the second coming of the Internet. Even in its infancy stage, it is taking the world by storm. The banks, the accounting firms and the financial companies are taking it seriously. But what is it and how does it affect us in our lives or our jobs? Is blockchain just another hyped up bubble or is it going to stay for real? Follow us through this book to understand blockchain and you decide whether it will affect us. This book will provide views from different perspective and hopes to let listeners understand the good and bad of the blockchain. After listening to the book, one should have a sound idea of what blockchain is and why is it such a huge phenomenon!

Ruined by the narrator

Couldn't finish this because of the terrible narration but someone who clearly does not have a clue what he is talking about.

An absolute gift to mankind

Notice:
1. This book is not about Bitcoin. It is about Blockchain, of which Bitcoin is but one application.
2. I haven’t even finished it yet, but I just can not wait to review this audiobook!

If you ever heard of the term “dumbing it down”. Or, perhaps they should have titled it “Blockchain for Dummies”.

What is a block?
What is a chain?
What is block chain?
What is Blockchain?

What is cryptography?
What is currency?
What is crypto currency?

This is how simple they’ve broken it down, using also awesome analogies such as “explaining Bitcoin to my grandmother” using a normal dollar note as a “block”.

Now I understand the real utility of Blockchain technology and why it is nearly guaranteed to change the way a whole lot of industries do business.

This book is an absolute gift to mankind

The worse narrated book I have listen to!

I couldn't even get past chapter 2 with this book. The narrator is terrible. I will never buy another book that he narrates.
