Summary

Discover the new world of blockchain technology, bitcoin trading, cryptocurrency investing, and much more!

What is blockchain? How does blockchain actually work? How does blockchain technology affect our future, and what can it be used for? Is Bitcoin dead, or is there still a ton of money to be made? Are you thinking about whether or not it is possible or worth the time to learn about Bitcoin? How can 18-year-olds make a fortune trading cryptocurrencies? Don't worry, all your questions will be answered.    

Bitcoin is the most valuable cryptocurrency out there. With an incredible growth over the past years, many individuals have made millions of dollars. Just like any other popular investment opportunity, there is a ton of misinformation about Bitcoin as well. That is why the high-quality and up-to-date information was the number one focus when researching this book. In comparison to most books out there, this one is straight on point and easy to understand for practically everyone.

The blockchain is an undeniably incredible invention - created by Satoshi Nakamoto. But since then, it has evolved into something greater, and the main question every single person is asking is: What is blockchain?

Blockchain is the world's leading software platform for digital assets. Digital assets, like Bitcoin and Ethereum, allow users to transact directly without any third-party intermediary and was built to radically improve the financial system.

Important to note that while everything in this documentary is true, this area moves so fast that some of it is already outdated.

I came to this book very skeptical of Bitcoin and walked away a new convert! There have been few books that have had such a profound impact on my worldview.

Excellent overview of Bitcoin

Particularly valuable points include its explanation of the history of money, including how technological change can change what is money, and why bitcoin may be history’s first universally honest ledger. I enthusiastically recommend!
