Summary

This book includes three manuscripts: Cryptocurrency Investing, Bitcoin: Guide to Trading, and Blockchain Technology

The world of cryptocurrency is quickly changing and having the ability to keep up can make it easier to join the market, and even make some money. It is not uncommon for people to jump on this network to complete various transactions and to keep their money safe. But one of the best things that you can do when it comes to digital currencies is use them as an investment. 

This book is going to help you to get started with your investment in digital currencies. Bitcoin is a household name that everyone wants to talk about now. Everyone is excited about how much this currency has grown in the past few years and many people watch the market as they are watching their daily news. While there is a lot of excitement around bitcoin and how it is doing, many people do not understand what this currency is or how it works. This guidebook will take some time to look at bitcoin and discuss everything that you need to know about the network, whether you are looking to purchase things, send money, receive money, or invest on the network. 

We’ve heard a great deal in the past few months about cryptocurrencies and how they are impacting the world. This book is not about that. It is a close look at the technology that these new currencies are based on. From 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, as its ability to adapt to nearly every type of industry can be used in a myriad of ways and is a whole new phenomenon that everyone should be trying to understand.

Fake reviews

Audible should at least check why certain "information" audiobooks get a lot of 5 star reviews on the same date. Just as this one. I have written to audible about the problem.

Informative but dry

I really struggled with the narration on this book. The content is informative, but the writing isn't the most polished. I quickly got bored of hearing the phrase "good money" through the book, and the narration seemed jolty and stumbling. I am very interested in the technology of blockchain and how bitcoin works, plus its potential. This audiobook gives a working insight, but further reading is also recommended. You may also find some of the points repeated over and again, which guess is a risk of buying what purports to be a few books in one. Some of the subject matter overlaps and repeats, and some of it repeats, and some points even repeat......

No intonation - machine read?

Although factually interesting the narrator is quite poor. The lack of breaks between chapters and paragraphs would suggest an auto voice of some description. Did not like - returned book for a refund.

Not What It Claims To Be

This is an investment book not a technology one. The title is very misleading. The narrator is dreadful too - purportedly a human but indistinguishable from a robotic synthesized voice. Pick another book - I can’t imagine this one satisfying anyone.
