Publisher's Summary

Learn all you need to know about blockchain and how it is going to change everything!

Researchers and technologists alike are talking about how blockchain technology is the next big thing across industries from finance to retail to even healthcare.

Just to give you a brief introduction to blockchain: In its simplest form, the blockchain is just a public ledger where transactions are recorded and confirmed anonymously. A ledger is just a collection of financial records. This ledger is shared between many, many parties.

Blockchain technology has the capabilities to do a lot of things, but that is the essence of it. Blockchain is the platform on which cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin etc. can exist.

It may seem simple (or not), but this technology will have worldwide effects and implications on almost every industry, and has the potential to change everything. And that is exactly what we will discuss in this book.

Some of the things you will learn about in this book include:

  • The grand concept of blockchain and how it works
  • The whole blockchain process - simplified
  • The impact of blockchain on the economy, business, the government, etc.
  • Introduction to cryptocurrencies
  • Cloud usage of blockchain
  • Ethereum, fintech, and smart contracts
  • And much more!

I highly encourage you to do yourself a favor, and learn more about the world of blockchain technology and what it will do to our rapidly advancing technological society. Make sure you are well educated and prepared for what is coming!

Bringing Context

I listened to this book with the hope that the author would make an attempt to frame the blockchain technology against the current financial and monetary backdrop. The author takes the listener down some well-traveled examples in the blockchain discussion but does an excellent job of staging the broader discussion. If you want to take your blockchain thinking to the next level this book is a great place to start.

Good book!!

For its price you may as well buy it and educate yourself, but it won't be the only book you will be buying on the subject thats for sure. I enjoyed it streamlined simplicity, but he only scratched the surface with a few of his chapter, which could have been a bit more extensive. As a mini-guide it was great and get my "informative yet average "nod.

I don't have any hesitation to recommend this stuff to all interested Listeners because I found it useful so far.

Most of the information you can get it online

What did you like best about Understanding Blockchain? What did you like least?

It is ok if you prefer to listen to it instead of searching for it online. There's nothing ground breaking on the book. However the narrator is ok.

Would you ever listen to anything by Richard Daniel again?

Maybe

Would you listen to another book narrated by Kelly Rhodes?

Yes

Could you see Understanding Blockchain being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

No
