Well explained

I finish this book feeling almost knowledgeable about Bitcoin and cryptocurrency. And that is saying something as finance is probably the subject area I am least well-versed on. The authors did a fantastic job of explaining, sometimes in fairly granular detail, the general contours of existing monetary systems, the invention of Bitcoin, and the role it and other cyrptocurrencies may play in world monetary systems in a way that a heretofore financial ignoramus can understand.

Provides detailed information

This is an informative book that reviews the some past-year history of bit coins. A lot of detail, perhaps sometimes too much, but lots of good resource information.

Very impressed

A really well-Explained and well thought-out book. The authors explain Bitcoin and what it is in the context of *what it can do* and *why it matters* and the *difference it is already making in people's lives*. They are not 'fanboys' or breathless libertarian utopians, like so many of Bitcoin's John the Baptists; rather, they are thoughtful and approach cryptocurrency from all angles and take a sober and ration stock of what it is -- and what it is not. Definitely one of the best books out there on this subject, I'm very impressed!!! Two thumbs way, way up!

Provides lots of tips

Clearly articulated the genesis, structure, and current thinking re: potential of Bitcoin and the blockchain for a relative neophyte. Highly recommend.
