Great explanations

Really interesting read - this book starts from the basics and builds up to a full explanation of how bitcoin and blockchains work. Detailed while being accessible, I learned a lot about this even though I thought I knew what I was talking about before!

Excellent book

This one explains what's going on under the hood, in a clear, digestible manner. I work in marketing in the crypto industry and this was the perfect book to fill gaps in my knowledge and refresh on key details. Some parts were funny too. I'd recommend The Basics as a perfect on-ramp into this topic.

The difficult topic made simple

The author does an excellent job of clearly laying out concepts and how everything fits together. This is one of the few credible books I suggest when people ask ‘Where can I learn about bitcoin?’. I’ve been in the space for quite some time and I still learned from The Basics of Bitcoins and Blockchains.

Wonderful explanations

As well as a clear, beautifully simple explanation of blockchain, Antony also uses his unique style of simplifying without dumbing down to explain all the areas related to blockchains such as banking, cash, and payments. A great book to understand the Basics of Blockchains but also a great way to understand the context and the importance of the technologies.

Spoken in clear, concise.

One of the top resources on Bitcoin and underlying technology, spoken in clear, concise prose suitable for layman while also containing substantial technical heft to satisfy seasoned developers looking to break into the field.

How Bitcoin works.

This book really shows how a transaction works, how Bitcoin works, and why we need it--along with a history and and thorough introduction of bitcoin that could explain it to someone that knows nothing of distributed ledger technology.

Excellent, with clear examples.

Just hear your book. It’s superb. After two years in the space and hearing many books yours is my favorite in terms of the insightful and sequential steps you take to explain a new, novel, and difficult concept. Thank you.
