    Highly recommended!!!

    Jeff Reed explains Blockchain’s history, basics, its historical development and applications.

    In addition, the author mentions Bitcoin Blockchain alternatives like Ethereum, Namecoin, Ntx and presents the benefits of Blockchain 2.0 in business negotiations and its future in health care, insurance, real estate and education.

    It is very informative and I recommend it.

    This book gave me more justifiable Notes!!!

    This is a great piece of technology!
    But I really had to do an extra research to understand more what this blockchain really does. But the book is really informative and I actually learned a lot.
    I didn’t know this kind of technology exists not until I found this book.
    This is really an interesting listen.
    I'd definitely recommend this book.
