Publisher's Summary

If you plan on investing in Bitcoin and want to get the highest possible return on your money, then keep reading...

According to a Nasdaq article, when gold and bitcoin were compared as investments over the last five years, bitcoin greatly outperformed the precious metal, generating an annualized return of 155 percent compared to gold’s annualized loss of 6 percent during the same period. 

London Block Exchange recently conducted a study which revealed that 5 percent of those aged below 35 already have cash invested in a cryptocurrency, while 11 percent are definitely planning to invest next year, shunning more traditional investments such as shares, bonds, and property. 

One thing is clear, Bitcoin is as promising as it is complex, but how is a normal user supposed to grasp the intricacies of this up-and-coming digital currency? How are you supposed to invest without breaking the bank or risking too much? 

This book will inform you about some of the unseen hazards and prospects that you may not have considered. 

In this book, you will: 

  • Discover useful tips for investing or trading Bitcoin 
  • Discover insightful ways of storing and exchanging digital coins 
  • Discover how the blockchain protocol works and how people can mine for Bitcoins 
  • Discover 20 of the most common misconceptions about Bitcoin 
  • Discover some of the risks associated with Bitcoin and how to minimize them 
  • ...and much, much more! 

Much of this advise goes against conventional wisdom. 

In fact, some of the advice sounds downright ridiculous to a non-professional - but time again the data shows that it works. 

Even applying one or two things inside could result in a 30 or 50% return on your investment. 

Sounds good?, Download this book and let's get started!

Excellent into!

An excellent introduction to blockchain technology for those who need more than an overview. It provides a proper context before I delve into the technical aspects in the future.

Introduction to technology.

This is a perfect introduction to bitcoin, short but not missing the key information. It isn't overly technical but can cue you in on the larger portions of the technology. After I listen to this, I was able to understand some of the more technical Audiobook/procedures quite easily. I have purchased subsequent Audiobook, but this is the shortest Audiobook with the most information per page on the topic. A must-listen for bitcoin enthusiasts or as an introduction to the technology.

An excellent introduction.

An excellent introduction - the basics clearly and thoughtfully presented, in appropriate detail for an introductory treatment. The first chapter does have a bit of over the top guff about how blockchain technology will change everything, but the author does strike a more cautionary note in the final chapter. A nice listen, and now I know what bitcoin "mining" actually means.

Good nontechnical overview

As an economist with modest mathematical skills, this book had exactly the right mix of analogy and direct explanation. The author also provides a good balance of pros and cons of blockchain and its future development

Good One!

Many books on the subject are light on detail. This leaves them useless for implementing the concepts presented. This book is different and very entertaining.
