  • Blockchain mine a currency 
  • The difference between them all 
  • Transactions and wallets

  • Why cryptocurrency

Cryptocurrency is undoubtedly the buzzword of the century. You can’t help but hear about it; every time you fire up a search engine or a news site on the Internet, there it is. And the one thing you really can’t have avoided seeing is the phenomenal way that some cryptocurrencies are rising in price. Before we dive further into cryptocurrency and how to trade with them, it is important for you to know something - although the prices are rising at a significantly fast rate, it is vital that you look at the whole picture. If you do, you will see that they can also drop at a huge rate, in some cases, overnight. Trading cryptocurrency is not for the faint-hearted and it's not for those who lose their bottle at the first sign of a wobble in the market – there will be plenty of those along the way, believe me! 

This guide has been designed to assist you in understanding the basics of cryptocurrency. Have you heard about cryptocurrency and want to find out more? Have you been confused about all the terminology that is used in cryptocurrency? Are you interested to find out which are the best cryptocurrencies and why? Then this guide can help you.

Soon you will know the difference between a node and a block. Understand what mining is and how it works. Know how to differentiate between the good currencies and the bad. 

It will teach you about the following areas, in a simple, easy to understand way: 

  • Who invented cryptocurrency and why 
  • The purpose of cryptocurrency 
  • What blockchain is and how it works 
  • What mining is and how it works 
  • The different cryptocurrencies and how to spot the best ones 
  • What a digital wallet is and how to use it

good audiobook

This book recording is a delicate prologue to every one of the ideas identified with digital forms of money and blockchains, and is anything but difficult to peruse and locks in. The audiobook is very much explored. Must be listen this book recording.

Awesome one

My partner passed me this to listen. I was skeptical at first, but it's easy going with a casual chatty tone, and now I can join in crypto conversations more confidently!

Best intro, no hype

Very Informative and useful

Many books on the subject are light on detail. This leaves them useless for implementing the concepts presented. This book is different and very entertaining.

Good book

Love the key ideas to focus upon at the end of each chapter, these are gems as in the blockchain asking the right questions about the blockchain is what is needed the most by both business manages and technologists.

Lovely

Finally I am listening a book (I have been reading several) that takes hype out and provides a framework to evaluate the value of the blockchain as trans-formative technology.

Decent primer, awful narration

Not a bad hour-long crypto primer, but completely ruined by ridiculously annoying narration. I’m still in shock at the low-rate ‘ad-voice-over’ style…

Waste of time.

Basically a set of obvious information followed list of websites to go and do your own research and to read each crypto white paper to learn about them! Reading voice also annoying. Sorry couldn't find anything positive to add.

I can understand what I am looking at now. Starting from zero it’s good to have a basic understanding to move forward in researching the next steps. If you are interested in cryptocurrency and have no idea what a Bitcoin or Alt coin is then this is a good start.
