Publisher's summary

Learn to make money in Bitcoin, even if you've never traded before.

Bitcoin is the greatest investment opportunity of our lifetime. Are you ready to get your piece of it? 

This book will teach you everything that you need to get started investing in Bitcoin. Bitcoin is the biggest revolution since the internet. It’s been the best-performing asset of the past decade. Is it too late to invest? Certainly not, if Bitcoin is going to $500,000 in the next five years, as many smart investors believe. 

Bitcoin is a giant, super-secure bank in the cloud that you can use to store and grow your wealth. Bitcoin is like the mutant offspring of a bar of gold and a tech stock. It’s volatile, it has huge upside, and it’s poorly understood. Many people still think that it is a scam, a bubble, or that it will be banned by the government. 

They could not be more wrong. US regulators have recently allowed US banks to custody Bitcoin. You can now legally buy Bitcoin using PayPal or the Cash App. Retails investors are snapping up the limited supply of just 21 million Bitcoin. 

Even more important, there is a giant wall of institutional money headed toward Bitcoin. Wall Street, billionaires, and even blue-chip corporations are getting in on the game. If you missed out on the internet, make sure you don’t miss out on the Bitcoin revolution. There are still huge amounts of money to be made.

Bitcoin is just getting started, and 2021 will be a year like no other. As central banks continue to print money, you need a place to store your wealth and protect it from inflation. This book will teach you everything you need to know to get started investing in Bitcoin today.

Don't gamble with your hard-earned money. If you are going to make a lot of money, you need to know how Bitcoin really works. You need to avoid the pitfalls and costly mistakes that beginners make. And you need a conservative approach to Bitcoin that will help you to survive the volatility. This book gives you everything that you will need. It's a simple Bitcoin road map that anyone can follow. 

In this book, you will learn:

  • Why Bitcoin is not a bubble or a scam
  • What makes Bitcoin different from other cryptocurrencies
  • The best way to buy Bitcoin
  • How to store your Bitcoin securely
  • Why Bitcoin will not be banned by the US government
  • How professional investors approach Bitcoin
  • The one thing you should never do when buying Bitcoin (don't start investing until you read this)
  • How to create a secure financial future using Bitcoin
  • And much, much more

Even if you know nothing at all about cryptocurrencies, this book will get you started investing.

Outdated and too basic

The author hasn't put much content onto bitcoin in this book, and most of this "advises" are far off outdated and invalid. Claiming that bitcoin is the only coin and the rest is rubbish, totally bias and unproven statement. He's probably manipulating the market via the book. Don't buy this book regardless if you are new or not a simple google search would have given you more context in this 1.5 hours ebook which is a waste of money and time.

Bit by the Bit-coin bug

This is a short concise introduction to the Bitcoin phenomenon.
There are little jewels of information here that I've not heard before.
Very inspiring.

Basic orientation to bitcoin

This is a good orientation to someone just starting out in bitcoin. If you read this short book and watch Kratter's YT channel you could pick up what you need to know to begin to understand btc and invest. I have read other beginner books from Kratter and this is on par.

Excellent book for Bitcoin beginners

Provides a really good foundation for anyone looking to get into Bitcoin. Also debunks many of the common Bitcoin myths like its negative impact on the environment or that its a waste of electricity. Highly recommended.

Informative and Easy

This is one of the best audiobooks I’ve ever listened to. The narration is very nicely done. The content is presented in a way that, I’m quite sure, most anyone could understand. I highly recommend this title.

Remarkably comprehensive 1.5 hr book

Remarkably dense 1.5 hr book. Not a single sentence of fluffor or filler. I've read one other book that was really spot on, and that was 15+ hrs long. The author provided info on how and where to start buying & store BTC SAFELY, which no other book or YouTube video has shown me before.
This is a book every novice buyer of Bitcoin should own. Also, if you don't feel really safe with your current habits of buying and storing Bitcoins, buy this book.
