Surprisingly Good

Cryptocurrency is one of the hot topics this year, and it's not surprising. There is no other currency that increases its value 5 times within 10 months. This book explains the reasons for this heightened interest, tells what is behind it, analyzes government reaction of in the different countries and provides some predictions.

Better Than Searching Google

Any additional comments?

I've researched the Internet on this topic before and had been confused with a few moments about Bitcoin, particularly about its price. In this book, I found a very sensible analysis of the Bitcoin price policy structured as a chart which is very convenient. I would definitely recommend this guide to starters.

I have been investing in cryptocurrency for a long time, and I have decided to find a simple and understandable book about blockchain and all other cryptocurrencies for my parents. It wasn’t easy!

I learned a lot form this book

A blockchain is fundamentally the same as a record. It is basically a decentralized and digitized record that can be gotten to by people in general. The blockchain develops each time another exchange is made. Every exchange is known as a square, and these pieces get included sequential request to the blockchain.

What an awesome book

From listening to this book I feel like I know so much more and can effectively invest in cryptocurrencies. I still feel like bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have too much hype and not enough solid proof, but this book really put things into perspective.
