Publisher's Summary

If you had bought and held unto $100 of bitcoin in 2010, you would have approximately $41,000,000 today in February 2022!

Those are astronomical gains, but most people didn’t know about bitcoin at that time or understand that it's the future of money. Even today, bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies like Ethereum and binance coin sound like unintelligible concepts; concepts that only the “experts” - the computer geeks - can understand and take advantage of.

For example, what are NFTs? And, why are people buying them for thousands, and sometimes even millions of dollars? Even a basic understanding of cryptocurrencies eludes most people. Many people simply watch random YouTube videos and throw their hard-earned money blindly into whatever their news feed suggests. This is a recipe for financial disaster. This audiobook, however, will break down all of that complicated language and explain the bare basics of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in an easy-to-listen, easy-to-understand style so that you don’t feel like a lost sheep anymore. You’ll actually understand what all the fuss is about. 

This audiobook isn't investment advice. It’s actually better: It gives you a basic understanding of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies so that you can do your own research, follow crypto news, and make your own decisions (if you choose to do so). It’ll go over prominent crypto news as well like the hype for Dogecoin and El Salvador’s decision to make bitcoin legal tender within its borders.

So, get this audiobook now. It’s short and easy-to-listen so that you don’t have to put your life on hold and pore over hundreds of lines of complicated information instead.

Incredible book for beginners!

For a long time, I've avoided learning about Bitcoin. I assumed it would be far too difficult. Yes, it's difficult, but this audiobook makes it much more understandable. The author is clearly knowledgeable, and the book is well-organized to assist you in understanding everything. The author also narrates, and he does an excellent job.

Learnt a lot through this book!

This book was exactly what I needed right now. Reading and hearing news about crypto currencies, i always wanted to understand the background and basics. Not only this book acts as a basic guide, but also shown me a way to know more about crypto currencies. Now it would be easier to learn more about it since I got most of my understanding through this book.

I mused find it to be very overwhelming but this book was able to break it down for me and I’m finally beginning to grasp the concept of cryptocurrency.

Great for a true beginner

I’ve listened to a number of audiobooks about cryptocurrency. Never once did I really understand what I was reading. It just didn’t make sense for someone who is novice. This book does a great job of explaining cryptocurrency for a true beginner to understand.

Excellent Book for Beginners and beyond

Excellent yet simply explained. I have purchased previous books on the subject but feel this was clear and easy to follow. This is a topic we are all going to need to be experts in over the coming years, so I would highly recommend a listen to get a head start if you haven't done your research already.

Highly recommended!

A short while ago, I learnt about cryptocurrencies and started thinking about them as a viable investment option. At the time though, my biggest problem was that I couldn't seem to get a resource that walked me step-by-step to actually understand what I would be getting myself into. Needless to say, I gave up. After listening to this book, I almost wish I didn't. I like that the explanations are simple enough even for someone who does not have the little knowledge I had before listening. Here, you'll demystify the world world of cryptocurrencies and possibly, if it is your cup of tea, soft launch your investment into that world. Highly recommended.

Great for beginners like me!

I'm so new to the world of bitcoin so I have been looking for an audiobook like this for a while! Terms like NFT's and alt coin were alien to me but I now have such a better understanding about these and cyryptocurrency in general. I like how the author has chapters on both bitcoin and Ethereum and goes into lots of detail but without making it sound too complicated. The Author also talks about other new types of rising cryptos like Binance coin and Polkadot so I feel like I have a head start on these too.

If you are looking to increase your knowledge of crypto currency and more importantly your confidence in beginning to trade with it then I would definitely recommend this book!

If I could give 6 stars I would

I loved this book - it covers every question I wish I had known but that I didn’t know I needed to know when I started out in Crypto and the author just made me feel safe - just information and no hype. Youtube videos just don’t cover this (I have watched lots).

I don’t invest much in crypto mainly because it had felt too complicated and it was only recently that I began to understand just how much I needed to know but I once again didn’t know where to start! If anyone is getting into crypto then this book is the book I wish I had read a few years ago.

For example, buying them is just where it starts, knowing how and where to keep them is a step I didn’t think about when I started out and I wish I had known much more about what was involved in managing your accounts and coins. You need to know this - trust me.

I have Euth and Bitcoin (and a couple of others that I can’t remember!), and until today I had no idea of what an alt coin, or bitcoin, actually was! And, although I kind of understood it was secure, until today, I really hadn’t thought too much about the fait currency and why crypto should be better.

The next thing I wish I had known about was just how it works and what market halving and mining is. Again, this is a must-know, and I understand it better now. It was even great to hear about was the energy use - this is something that kept coming up over the last year and I did not understand it at all.

Finally, the author covers where we are now and what the new coins are extremely well and I now have a much better idea of what to watch for and what to consider. The summary of dodge, binance etc and what stable coins/tether are (and so on) is so helpful.

This book is ideal for those like me who are in it but don’t understand it, and for those about to start. It is invaluable and it is very easy to listen to and to understand. I am so glad I got the chance to listen to this book and it will be one that I will listen to often! It’s really a must-have.

Very interesting book

I've been looking to invest in crypto for a while as I keep hearing from friends and colleagues how they've made profits on their investments.
This book is a great resource for beginners who are interested in investing in bitcoin and other crytocurrencies.

The author has provided lots of useful information and advice to familiarise yourself with. You will learn all the language related to this type of investment but please take financial advice from an expert before making any investments.

Great starter kit!!
