    Good Introduction To The Topic

    There is a bit of confusion between blockchain and crypto here but I think that's how things are across the board now. So... I think this work accurately reflects public perception of the content. This is not a detailed explanation of the blockchain itself and I think that would take a rather larger volume to pull off. It is, however, a good start in understanding both cryptocurrencies and the blockchain tech/algorithm itself. The narration is good quality too. Please note: I got a review copy of this work. However, that's not influenced my opinion on this work. It is, as always, completely my own.

    Understanding the Internet of money

    This book is really a great way to start a blockchain company of technology.

    There is still confusion of what it is. Yes, there is, however, the blockchain should have been the first thing they should have established as soon as the Internet was in full action. Unfortunately, it came late and now people are struggling to trust it.

    The process called mining for bitcoin and individuals are able to do transaction, which required fewer intermediaries.

    Yes, huge banks are currently seeing blockchain’s importance in the world or our society today. I’ve been following YouTube information concerning Blockchain since then I stumbled upon this audiobook. Oh may God bless Eddie Leonard Jr for being a blessing to me.

    The formidable structure of his narrations splendid and can make you pay special attention to grab all in one single sitting.

    Simple rules made simple.  Blockchain has its advantage to run and likewise its disadvantages because many of us still doubt its possibility and not quiet convinced to initiate ourselves into the game, the book warned us to give it a try and surely we will enjoy the game of Bitcoin.

    But do you know why it is so? The reason being it’s yet complicated and people are not familiar with its nitty-gritty.

    For the invading party could influx the chain. Blockchain can give rise to new security issues. We have to trust that they are working ethically. Shares are handed out quickly. The Exchanges in payments that go on between partners is the awesome step that none of us should not lose sight of its platform being online for now.

    If I say is good is an understatement. It’s very much awesome. The narrator brought true life to the book making it for me to listen to it more five times because I wanted to take note of every word he pronounces.
