Summary

Thirty-five percent of all US dollars in existence were printed during the pandemic year of 2020. The global monetary system is moving toward cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologies.

It's one thing for people to listen to influencers and the common average Joe who try to convince others about the future of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. It's a whole other ball game when Fortune 500 corporations and large fund managers talk about entering the blockchain space. Companies like Toyota, Facebook, PayPal, and so many more are putting more investment capital into blockchain, and that presents us with an opportunity to capitalize on it!

Inside this audiobook, you will discover:

  • The basics and genius of blockchain technology 
  • Bitcoin acquisition and mining
  • Trading and investing in cryptocurrencies
  • Fraud prevention
  • And so much more

Good understanding

The last chapter deals with the technical part; I recommend to see other visual materials to grasp the concept. Lastly, if your level of English is good, you can increase the speed. This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Top marks from me.

This really is a high quality product. I’ve bought a few other blockchain books but got bored pretty quickly as the same facts were regurgitated over and over but I’m glad to say this one is different from the others.

Buy the book and get started.

If you thought that bitcoin was too hard to grasp then think again because this audiobook has enabled me to start trading in crypto. I’m not remotely technical minded and im not good with computers. If I can do it anyone can.

The audiobook is well researched

I worked with it for over a year at R3 and he has a great knack for explaining technical ideas to a lay audience, without using jargon. This audiobook is a gentle introduction to all the concepts related to cryptocurrencies and blockchains and is easy to listen to and engaging. The audiobook is well researched - I've been in the industry for 4 years and still learned some new facts!

I’m happy with that!

Well I learned how to buy and store bitcoin and by mid morning I had done just that. I followed the step by step guidance in this audiobook and successfully purchased bitcoin and a secure wallet to store it in. I appreciated the detailed chapters on securing cryptocurrency.
