Four Stars!!!!

When it comes to the cost of all of the additional computer resources as well as the electricity that these resources consume, the cost is enough to be probative in numerous scenarios. The estimated costs of each confirmed bitcoin transaction is said to be at roughly what it would cost to run the average household for 36 hours.
Highly recommended!!!
Just grab this book guys it is really awesome and i loved it

Essential Guide!!!

Would you listen to Blockchain: The Essential Guide to Understanding and Using Blockchain Technology for Beginners again? Why?

Yes i loved this book..The estimated costs of each confirmed bitcoin transaction is said to be at roughly what it would cost to run the average household for 36 hours.

What did you like best about this story?

The distributed nature of a blockchain is what makes them so useful when preventing fraud, it also makes them extremely inefficient. When it comes to the cost of all of the additional computer resources as well as the electricity that these resources consume, the cost is enough to be probative in numerous scenarios.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES.

Any additional comments?

This is not something that is likely to decrease either, as the distributed nature of the process is one of its most lauded features.
will suggest this book!!!

Any additional comments?

This books does its best to break down the complicated concept of blockchain. From the basic use of a bitcoin wallet to buy a cup of coffee, to running a bitcoin marketplace with hundreds of thousands of transactions, you'll get a grasp of it all. I loved it! I liked that it went over the drawbacks and advantages of blockchain, listed who should and should not use it, as well as the list of personal and business uses and advantages of it. Overall, this book is well written and easy to understand. I highly recommended.

good place to start journey

awesome guide,the author had explained well.....Presents a very wide perspective of what blockchain is and where it can possibly be used. Although some of the content could be squeezed into a smaller edition. However it does a good job at making sure the listener understand the underlying concept and has more to go on.HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.......

lovable guide

excellent book.......The first chapters gave a good overview on blockchain (and some other technologies ). This is however more a marketing book on blockchain than a practical guide, e.g. a lot of comparisons and assumptions are made that blockchain will develop in the same way how the Internet developped but it is not entirely clear why that would be the case.ils worthfull.........

Disappointed

I may be the wrong reader for this book , already having more than a working knowledge of block chain type technology.

I felt the explanations of technology were neither comprehensive enough to satisfy the knowledgeable nor simple enough to suit a layman.

I did find aspects of the tone a little unexpected - with Bank's portraits as simply bad vs
