Awful and misinformation.

Buyer beware. This book has so many errors. Claims Bitcoin has smart contracts. It does not. Claims that the US went off the gold backed dollar in the 1930's. More like the 70's. What a total waste of money. Bitcoin books with the wrong info are dangerous. I want my money back.

History of the Blockchain

I greatly appreciated the history of the blockchain and how miners are used to run it. Greatly beneficial to explain to others as well who just have no idea what a bitcoin is!
