Publisher's 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'.

Informative & Entertaining

Content is super informative for novice trading/crypto enthusiast. Siam also reads the book well. If you have zero knowledge of crypto, this book is a good gateway I think.

Crypto

This was a great introduction to trading and crypto. I knew nothing about either topic and now I feel ready for the next step of investing. Some parts I had to read more than once but I mostly understood it first time. Siam has an easy voice to listen to. If you are interested in the future of currencies and how it will affect our society then you need to read this book.

not for learning to trade

I was recommended this book as a possible introduction to crypto trading. while it covers a lot of background and basic information about what crypto is, how it works and common mistake new traders make it certainly isn't a guide to begin investing with

I went from knowing basically nothing to feeling I could hold a decent conversation about it!

Well worth a listen. Down to earth and plain straight-talking language. Great book and I will be recommending it to family & friends!

No BS book, just facts .

Easy to follow, good advice. If you manage to write it all down, it's a good start in crypto.

Simply brilliant

Siam Kidd’s brutal honesty and wisdom is clear to see or rather listen too.

He’s approach to Cryptos is logical and sensible, something that is well needed in this space.

Amazing insight into the brain of Siam Kidd

Brilliant book by Siam, encapsulates everything he stands for. From Cryptos to trading to teaching the world about finance and the economy, all is plain English.

Also a very Interesting theory on who Satoshi is! I think you may be right Siam!

Everything you need to know to get crypto smart

A very comprehensive look at all things crypto and explained in a very easy manner. But then Siam takes it even further with trading secrets future projections and even some fact based conspiracies that'll change the way you see the government, money and the economy.

A must read for anyone trying to make sense of cryptos but is a bit lost.
