Summary

The easiest way into the world of blockchain, cryptocurrency, decentralization, bitcoin, ICOs, and Co.

Have you ever asked yourself what a cryptocurrency, a blockchain, or Bitcoin is? How about the word decentralization? You might have heard that “these things are coming” and “will take over the world”. No matter if you have or haven’t, “they” are right - these things are coming. And “these things” will play just as important a role as the internet has for the past 20 years.

You know who “won” with the internet? The people who started preparing for it at the beginning, using it personally or for their business before others did.

With this new technology called blockchain, a similar window of opportunity has started to open.

Ten things you will learn in this audiobook that will blow your mind:

  1. What does “backed by gold” actually mean?
  2. Will cryptocurrencies replace fiat currencies?
  3. Can an internet outage destroy cryptocurrencies?
  4. Does mining really create cryptocurrencies? (Hint: It doesn’t)
  5. Is a maximum amount of Bitcoin really good for a currency?
  6. How do I get a cryptocurrency account if no one is in charge?
  7. Are cryptocurrencies better than fiat currencies?
  8. Is blockchain the only solution for decentralization?
  9. Which technology will win? (Hint: not the best one!)
  10. Can you lose a coin? (Hint: You can not

Excellent

I'm a huge fan of Julian's and this book has given me a really solid foundation of what blockchain and cryptocurrencies are all about.
It seems like they have done something to his voice which is a bit off putting but other than that I cant fault it.

Still an excellent choice for begginers

Some parts of the book need to be updated and would love to see volume 2 edition but nevertheless this still is one of the best books on crypto, Bitcoin and Blockchain out there and if someone would ask me where to start with crypto education that book would be it. There are few informations in it that even experienced crypto enthusiasts might benefit from. Good readings.
