Blockchain: Master the Blockchain Technology:
Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin are fascinating, and if someone is able to do their own solving of the algorithmic puzzles and mining of the Bitcoin, there is even money to be made.

Bitcoin: The Currency of the Future:
You have probably heard of Bitcoin. It has garnered a lot of attention lately, both among Bitcoin enthusiasts and in the mainstream media. There is a lot of hype surrounding Bitcoin. It has been featured in news and periodical articles, as well as television shows. It seems to be a buzzword that is quickly becoming embedded in popular culture. Many people have heard of it and know that it is a "virtual currency", but what does that mean? What is a virtual currency? What is Bitcoin even good for, and how can you use it?
Bitcoin is a virtual, peer-to-peer currency that is not regulated by any government. It does not exist in hard forms, such as cash; rather than being minted by a treasury or other centralized regulating body, it is mined by programmers who solve complex mathematical and computational problems to release blocks of Bitcoins into the Bitcoin pool.
Because there is no centralized financial body regulating Bitcoin, its value is not set or predetermined by any one authority. Rather, it derives its value entirely from consumer demand for it. When more users buy and make transactions in Bitcoin, its value goes up.

Great for beginners

Very concise introduction both to Blockchain and Bitcoin. I have been struggling to understand some of the concepts, especially of Blockchain, and although some work remains, this clarified a lot. It helped of course, that the narrator was engaging.

Nice book to listen

Authors performed a great study on the covered Blockchain: Blockchain and Bitcoin, some chapters have a lot of assumptions. Overall a good job.
