Summary

Cryptocurrencies are the biggest opportunity of your lifetime, and the crypto gold rush is only just beginning....

'The future of money is digital currency.' 'Bitcoin is a technological tour de force.' (Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft)

Blockchain technology and the cryptocurrencies it enables are being described by some people as the biggest thing since the Internet, but very few people understand it or the opportunities it brings. Enter this down-to-earth guide to understanding what cryptocurrencies are, why it matters and how to make money from them.

This audiobook is for everyone who has heard of bitcoin and cryptocurrencies and wants to learn more - and make money on the back of it. Believe it or not, if you bought $1,000 of Bitcoin in 2010, you would now be worth over $220m! This has left the public stunned. People around the world are asking, 'What on earth is a crypto?', 'Should I buy some Bitcoin?', 'How do I even buy some cryptocurrencies?', 'Isn't this just one big bubble?' and more.

Siam Kidd is one of the world's leading authorities on how to safely invest in cryptocurrencies. He runs The Realistic Trader, home to the world's best crypto investing course for beginners, with a community of followers from around the globe. 

He created this book to lift up the crypto bonnet in order to reveal, explain and illustrate everything you really need to know about this fascinating market. You'll learn:

  • What all this crypto stuff is
  • Why it exists
  • Where this industry is going in the future
  • How it will positively change your life
  • The pitfalls and errors every newbie makes
  • And, importantly, how to safely play in this market if you so wish to have a dabble with some risk capital! 

This book does all that without boring you with mathematics and 'Geek Speak'.

Brilliant audiobook

Even though this book is a couple of years old now, it is still FULL of highly relevant information and anecdotes delivered in a light and easy to comprehend manner. Fascinating and exciting and Siam narrates with ease in a friendly and down to earth way. Highly recommended.

Covers basics very well

Really liked how well laid out and broken down all of this was. Great unbiased advice based on the mistakes and experiences by the author. Sharing glimpses of the future and what the crypto revolution may hold.

Nothing new here, 5 hour advert for the author

Nice voice but he narrates as if he’s only reading the material for the first time, or doesn’t understand it. Spends much of the book scoffing at “amateur dabblers”, despite the fact the material presented is so rudimentary it could not be intended for anybody else. He uses anecdotes to illustrate his teaching points, but the majority of these seem solely intended to point out his supposed successes, interspersed with some strategic faux-deprication for good measure. You half-expect him to end every chapter with a Partridge-esque “And needless to say, I had the last laugh!”

There are no new revelations here, but he handily signposts his online video course in case you might actually want to learn something useful (ka-ching!) If you can handle the idea of him bragging at you for several more hours, then I wish you well.

Great book - a little out of date

This book is a gold mine of information and fantastic to learn the basics from but as it was published in 2018 about a fast moving topic it was always going to eventually time itself out and become less relevant.

To add the book is well structured, presents/ differentiates facts and opinions clearly and covers the whole (as far as I know) range of this subject to a beginner/ intermediate level and provides ideas how to get more knowledge.
