If you know anyone who is aiming to "get rich quick" from these new-fangled bitcoins, ethereums, or some random cryptocurrencies that a teenage hacker invented in his bedroom last night, get them to read this first.

I would recommend this book to anyone thinking of making a move into cryptocurrencies; not only does it describe the technical limitations but also the dangers stemming from lack of regulation. The next three chapters cover alternative cryptocurrencies, including Dogecoin and Ethereum, before looking in more depth at smart contracts and the growing use of blockchain as a separate technology divorced from cryptocurrencies.With over 6 million of the world’s best eBooks to choose from, Kobo offers you a whole world of reading.

The author's acknowledged longstanding interest in music and the music business make this one of the most captivating sections of the book. They are speculative and sexy, making them flypaper for con artists, but that’s not the point – even good-faith implementations don’t work.
