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.

best book

I finished this book the same evening it arrived. The high-level overview was just what I was looking for. While a web search of the topic would have eventually yielded the same information, this book was better organized and more comprehensive

new technologies


I was able to successfully use this book as a springboard to a more in depth study of blockchain. It gave me the foundation to comfortably dig in to the more technical aspect of this new technology.

Fantastic book for those just being introduced into the world of bitcoin or long term users of bitcoin. Fantastic read with interesting topics that make you want to keep reading. I dont know how this book has not exploded in popularity with crypto users in general.

lovable guide


very informative. Gave me a very good overview of an emerging technology that I knew very little about. However it did not provide practical ideas or tips for someone at my level.....a layman. But did offer suggestions on further sources of study.

quickk guide

Very quick read, but gave me the level of detail that I was looking for. I work at a software company, in a non-technical capacity. The book gave me enough of a foundation so that I can better understand blockchain strategy discussions at work.

natural guide


I have tried to read some forums, FAQs, etc., but really could not understand a word. Then I thought it was a good idea to start from the beginning, and for these purposes, the Guide is just perfect!

get started

The author was able to explain the concepts behind Bitcoin properly. The examples were easy to relate to even without technical experience. Knowing how complicated Bitcoin works, I surely learned ton of new concepts from this book.

good intro


A good introduction that is a easy read.
Would expect more details on the 51% attack and its implication on double spending and so forth.
More details on the incidents mentioned in the last chapter would be helpful too.
