Awesome introduction to blockchain

If you don't know anything about blockchain this book describes it in a very simple way. Moreover, you will grasp the concept how Bitcoin works and what are the other uses of blockchain. The last chapter deals with the technical part; I recommend to see other visual materials to grasp the concept. Lastly, if your level of English is good, you can increase the speed.
