Sep 13, 2017The most groundbreaking and interesting book I have read in years. This has got to be one of, if not the most, authoritative books out there on the blockchain. It is easy to understand yet still focuses on technical matters. A good read for those both knowledgeable and unfamiliar with this space. Nor is it simply about Bitcoin (blockchains are about much more than Bitcoin). It explains how blockchain works, the history of blockchain and Bitcoin, and how blockchain technology has the potential to transform the spheres of commerce, finance, management, public administration, politics, government and society in general (not to mention other applications) with a focus on banking and finance. Definitely compulsory reading for anyone wishing to explore and learn more about blockchain and financial technology.
Sep 13, 2017I love reading about blockchain and other technologies. I got into Bitcoin very early so I have some virtual currency to trade with, but never imagined I'd want to get into crypto trading. This book changed that for me. The author clearly talks a lot, and some points may go over your head if you're not super familiar with the topic, but it's absolutely worth the time you put into reading it. Warning: it gets very technical at times. The author is clearly an expert on both trading and crypto, and rewards you for keeping up. I HIGHLY recommend this book if you're interesting in blockchain or finance at all.
Sep 13, 2017I purchased this on the day of Launch 9/9, after I saw Peter on Business Insider regarding Bitcoin. Really enjoyed the colorful graphs, the text was a bit long, but very thorough, probably one of the best books on blockchain trading and modern finance currently out there. A great read overall!
Sep 13, 2017This book really helped me understand the blockchain. I will expect great things from this technology in the future! i hope you can print in Korean version soon, I would love to buy this for my friends. Great book for even the beginner business people. Please translate this book to the Korean Language!
Sep 9, 2017English not first languag, but with many graphs and charts was easy to follow and understand. Nice topics. Please translate to Chinese soon!
Sep 9, 2017I was at the Blockchain NYC event this past Wednesday, where Peter announced the launch of his book. First of, that was probably one of the most packed event i have been too in the last year. Great networking and crowd. Wine didn't hurt either! Really enjoyed the event and all the panelists, Peter part was excellent and i wanted to get my hands on the book as fast as i could. I have stayed up half the night devouring it. If you are into blockchain, this is definitely one of the best ones in terms of case studies and applications. Very clear, concise, easy to understand. If you are in Finance or Fintech, this is a must read.
Sep 9, 2017Must say, it's one of the more clear and descriptive books on the topic of Blockchain with actual applications (finally) in the field of finance. The good thing is whether you are a novice or an expert in the Blockchain space you can still learn a bunch about both technology as well as factual statistics of its integration into the world of finance. Must read!!
