Summary

Did you know blockchain is directly responsible for the furry of investment that surrounded Bitcoin, which saw a maximum price of over $20,000 at year’s end of 2017 and $7,000 in mid 2018?

While you may not have heard much about blockchain technology yet, you can rest assured that the certain key industries already have blockchain fever and it's spreading.

2018 is going to be the year that blockchain comes out from the shadows in its own right, which means if you want to be on the cutting edge of the next big thing then this is the book you have been waiting for.

So what is blockchain?

A blockchain is a decentralized database that works as a distributed ledger. Its unique construction makes it extremely secure while allowing for a virtually unlimited number of users to interact with it at once. While this might not sound like all that much, the possibilities that this technology creates, especially in the financial sector, are virtually limitless. The secret here is that blockchains allow for strangers to conduct transaction with complete trust in the other party, without the need for any type of middle man.

Blockchain is being called the most important new technology since the creation of the Internet.

In Decemeber 2017, Bitcoin hit a record high of $19,700 and then dropped to an average of $6,500 in July 2018.

Within the short period of 2017 to 2018, there were many people that made a lot money while many others went the alternate route. The latter happened because many were jumping on the wagon, chasing the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow without knowing what they were doing.

easy to understand

I like how the book compared Blockchain to a Lego set. Makes everything easier to understand. I'd definitely suggest listening to this book even when you are not familiar with the terms used in the Blockchain.

The book made the technical concept behind

The book made the technical concept behind blockchain easier to understand. The details that go into the block help grasp the benefits and limitations of blockchain technology. The examples of the applications of blockchain technology in various industries outside of finance and Bitcoin were very helpful. This helps to grasp the scope of the reach of the new promising technology.

This is a perfect introduction to Blockchain,

This is a perfect introduction to Blockchain, short but not missing the key information. It isn't overly technical but can cue you in on the larger portions of the technology. After I listen to this I was able to understand some of the more technical books/procedures quite easily. I have purchased subsequent books, but this is the shortest book with the most information per page on the topic. A must-listen for Blockchain enthusiasts or as an introduction to the technology.

Short but sweet overview of the blockchain.

Short but sweet overview of the blockchain. I had literally zero understanding of how blockchain works prior to this listen to this, but can now hold my own in a conversation, and know which pieces interest me more, so I can narrow additional listen and research to those parts.
