Great Narration.

As an audiobook narrator myself...my hat’s off to you Louis Zeman. Very well done Sir. The content is fascinating. I know way more about crypto from this (my real first introduction to crypto) audiobook listen. These journalists are geniuses. Wow on the research and content. Thank you for putting this together. I need to listen again. And I’ll be listening to more audiobooks by Eric Linden as well. Nice work.

Good for basics on crypto

"Good book on the history on how cryotos came to be but it's already outdated as it's missing the last couple of years so it paints a picture of what it could be but doesn't take into account the reality of how things have evolved and the current issues around cryptos"

Mind expanding read

"I initially approached this book as a relative sceptic with respect of Bitcoin. This book radically altered my perspective on a very important topic for all of us. I would highly recommend this book as an introduction to Bitcoin and more importantly, currency and crypto currency's. Read it to understand what you don't understand. Read it to help you radically expand your perspective."

The must read book on Bitcoin

"Want to learn what Bitcoin is? Know what it is but don't know why you should care? Thoughtfully written with input from extensive interviews with many many people who are building the future of money, Paul and Mike take the reader on a guided tour not only of the block chain, but the history of electronic money itself. I can honestly say that after having been involved with Bitcoin since July 2010, I learned quite a bit from the book."

" Absolutely fascinating, yet scary and exciting,

Nice audiobook .

It is explained with an underlying consistency which allows having a proper view on the topic. If you have a tech background this is the typical audiobook that will not get quickly outdated and gives a good foundation which you cannot have just by listen to blogs and attending the meetup. Armed with the learnings from this text it is possible to follow all the last progress in the field.

A little left leaning, but informative and reasona

Mids were heavy on the eq side; it's a solo vocal track, so maybe consider cutting them to reduce fatigue since there's no mix to worry about cutting through. We're listening for hours at a time so this could significantly improve the listening experience.

Insightful and Informative Second Half

"Front-end origin story rehash was painful to skip through ( a necessary evil to be deemed a thorough piece), but it was followed by a very worthwhile insightful and informative back half of the book."

"5 stars. The authors of this books do an absolutely incredible job explaining where money came from, where it is today, and where it could go tomorrow.

What's bitcoin anyway?

"This book gives pretty good explanation of crypto currency how, what and why it exists. There are many contradictions presented like.. ""you can make a lot of money"".. Well how do you get a bitcoin? Buy it with money. We all wish we had $1 of bitcoin at day one. That would be worth $20 million given the current value of $50,000."

Cryptocurrency discussions.

The audiobook goes into extreme depth into what exactly Blockchain is as a technology and how it works. I then use clear analogies and comparisons to help explain to listen the technologies important to the world. The authors also take an objective stance on the topic at hand, which is extremely difficult to find when dealing with Blockchain and cryptocurrency discussions.

I loved this audiobook .

What I loved about this audiobook is that the authors did an amazing job in applying the concept of Blockchain by providing applicable examples of how people, companies, and governments use blockchain technologies to solve real-world problems. I would recommend anyone to listen to this audiobook if you are curious about the emerging tech trends in today's world. The author also wrote 'Swipe to Unlock', feel free to check it out. They are both great!

Blockchain and crypto ,

This audiobook helped me gain perspective and understand blockchain and crypto in a completely lucid manner. I loved how the authors didn't assume the listen to have the technical knowledge and explained everything through real-world analogies.
