Summary

Do you want to become a master at trading and investing in Bitcoin? Here is the complete guide! 

Bitcoin was dropped off in complete anonymity by a figure who referred to himself as "Satoshi Nakamoto". This anonymous gift to the world has gone on to revolutionize the world of commerce like never before. Bitcoin is the first decentralized digital currency to be completely free from governmental controls and oversight.

Anyone anywhere can use Bitcoin and due to the finite amount of coins in circulation, whatever happens in the outside world, those virtual coins locked up in cyberspace will never face the inflation and corruption that plagues the dollar, pound, and euro. This book takes you back to the very beginning, to when the aptly named "genesis block" - the first seed of Bitcoin was planted in what has become the Bitcoin ecosystem.

Whether you are a novice or a seasoned user of Bitcoin this book will provide relevant and eye-opening details as to how you can succeed in the Bitcoin universe like never before. Learn how to mine your own Bitcoins, market them, join mining pools, and associated affiliate groups.

As well as a primer on how to use and mine in the Bitcoin ecosystem this book also provides an inside look at some of the triumphs and tragedies of this new mode of living with the personal testimonies of those whose whole world was changed by the seemingly random yet life changing letters and numbers that make up the block chain.

In this book you will learn how to:

  • Use Bitcoin wallets and programs 
  • Mine for your own Bitcoins 
  • Understand the security of the Block Chain 
  • And a whole lot more

Finally a perfect introductory book.

It is very difficult to find a book written by a real expert. This author knows what he is talking about and conveys all the relevant information regarding Cryptocurrency in an easy and simplified way. For a long time I wanted to understand the principals of Cryptocurrencies, but not being tech savvy I refrained from the effort. Finally I have a book that gave me a wonderful introduction to the topics of Bitcoin, Blockchain, and all. Will look after other books by this author.
