For the cost, both time & our current versions of currency, it is a great buy! Enjoy, share and see what you can incorporate into your life now since the future is coming more quickly every day!
I went from being completely ignorant about crypto currencies to having a good understanding of their mechanics, their exchanges, potential for profit and “mere“ commercial use, and the political implications of crypto currency‘s. The author discusses not just Bitcoin, but Etherium, light coin, dogecoin, and other types of crypto currency. A good description of block chain was most useful. It gave me confidence in the security of coins. Then there is the good old admonition to not invest more than you can afford to lose. This was an excellent book. I’m so glad that I purchased it.
Recommended for people with some background already on the subject to get the most. I'm new to crypto currency. After a few hours or days of googling/youtube i decided to go for a book. This one helped me getting a better understanding of the basic concepts and how deep this actually is. Things to avoid and even financial advice. Looks like the author have a good financial background. I don't know much about it. I'm a IT guy and that just helps when it comes to understand mining and the related hardware, but for the financial aspect, you need to get your 101 on investment and all that. Hope that helps.
The information in this book is useful for someone who is just starting to learn about crypto currency and the underlying block chain that makes it possible. The book could use a bit of proofreading for numerous grammatical errors.
A very thorough book. The author took the time to explain in detail the terminologies behind cryptocurrency technology - blockchain, and the differences between each currency. The highlight for me was the author going through the mindset of investing since cryptocurrencies are very volatile at this moment. Going to start dipping my toes into investing in some ether.
Although a few grammatical errors here as there, the value the book provides us tremendous. I went from completely oblivious into the know-how in one sitting. If you're getting started with crypto or blockchain, start here!
