This book is a must have for anyone wanting to learn about the Bitcoin 2.0 or "Beyond Bitcoin" technology emerging from the creation of blockchain technology. Max is definitely ahead of the curve on emerging technology and explains how you can use this knowledge to position yourself to profit from this revolutionary (and highly disruptive) technology.

This is an easy to follow read on everything from how Bitcoin works, and how you can apply the blockchain technology that Bitcoin is built on to power the companies of the future. It then moves on to Bit Assets, how they work and how this technology can revolutionize everything from how people interact and pay each other for goods and services, to changing the entire face of the banking and financial sector as we know it.

Bitshares is the future of banking. Bitshares is beyond Bitcoin, and beyond banking.

Terrific book. Very conversational and easy to understand. He explains how Bitcoin works and why BitShares offers much, much more. Many great innovations seem to start with a pioneer technology that blazes a trail, but ultimately lacks the features to succeed. Oftentimes, it is the successor technology which builds on that initial innovation, fixes its problems, and creates something better. Such is the case with Bitcoin (think Alta Vista) and BitShares (think Google). BitShares can decentralize and democratize finance for everyone. Say goodbye to your bank and hello to the future!

My son is always telling me about Bitcoin this and how it is going to change the world. Well I decided to buy some books on the subject and came across this. A well written introduction that explained it in terms a person interested in investments can understand. This book isn't terribly heavy on the technical-speak but I wasn't looking for it either.

Max is an extremely eloquent speaker and great interviewer, in addition to his skills as an author which I have just now discovered in this book. It is a straightforwardly written book that will help anyone familiar with bitcoin or any other crypto-currency get up to speed on the groundbreaking innovations of BitShares. It will quickly catapult your understanding using simple examples and videos on his BitShares.TV channel and walks you through the steps for using the BitShares ecosystem today.

The BitShares ecosystem is on the brink of having a profound impact on the world of banking. It will teach you why BitShares is better suited, more efficient and closer to achieving the ideals of Satoshi Nakamoto than bitcoin. If the spirit of freedom lives within you but feels kicked around, beaten down and repressed by the state of an antiquated financial system on the precipice of collapse, this book will lift your spirits and give you hope that things are about to change, at least that's how it impacted me.

Two huge features of the BitShares ecosystem will be voting and recurring payment systems. Voting will not only give each owner of BitShares a voice in directing it's future evolution, it will also be an invaluable tool for conducting true and unbiased polling of public opinion and how crucially important that feature alone is to give a megaphone to every voice so it has real impact in the world. The recurring payment systems of today and their burdensome fees will soon be a thing of the past.

And don't get me started on what BitShares will do the the billions of the world's unbanked population that will be empowered by access to this ecosystem using their mobile phones. The possibilities are truly staggering to get your head around!

I found this book to be easy to read, enjoyable and informative. It's an accessible guide to the layman who is looking to understand the crypto currency space. Bitcoin is explained as background information and then BitShares is brought into the picture in steps everyone can understand. It's a complex topic explained in a simple way. Recommended.

This is a great book written by Max Wright about Bitshares, a newer company to the crypto currency market. This book explains exactly what Bitshares is and the potential for creating a new economy.

I highly recommend to anyone who is looking for more information on this subject.

Great work. Bitcoin was the beginning and what the debut of Blockchain Concensus technology. However, its limitations are apparent and even with the new chains that tout feature additions it is growing apparent that Bitcoin itself is not going to remain the top competition in this space. BitShares 101 was an easy read and while speaking to the value of bitcoin, Max did well by investors to teach of the significant improvements upon consensus algorithms used and what bitshares represents.

Good work and worth the read.
