The Basics of Bitcoins and Blockchains An Introduction to Cryptocurrencies and the Technology that Powers Them

Review :

The content accomplished exactly what the book title suggested and even went beyond for a bit. The technical explanation lived up to the my expectation and it is easy to understand. I particularly like the texts about the history of money / the criteria for a good form of currency / the mechanism of bank clearing system / history of both Bitcoin and Ethereum.

Though the book mentions comparatively little about the latest blockchain / cryptocurrency topics in the field like the Facebook Libra coin / Chinese Government digital currency, the book is already extensive enough to cover all the basics for a beginner.
