Publisher's Summary

Bitcoin two-in-one complete guide.

The Complete Guide to Investing with Bitcoin, The Complete Guide to Understanding Blockchain Technology.

Bitcoin was dropped off in complete anonymity by a figure who referred to himself as “Satoshi Nakamoto”. This anonymous gift to the world has gone on to revolutionize the world of commerce like never before. Bitcoin is the first decentralized digital currency to be completely free from governmental controls and oversight.

Anyone anywhere can use Bitcoin, and due to the finite amount of coins in circulation, whatever happens in the outside world, those virtual coins locked up in cyberspace will never face the inflation and corruption that plagues the dollar, pound, and euro. This audiobook takes you back to the very beginning, to when the aptly named “genesis block” - the first seed of Bitcoin - was planted in what has become the Bitcoin ecosystem.

Whether you are a novice or a seasoned user of Bitcoin, this audiobook will provide relevant and eye-opening details as to how you can succeed in the Bitcoin universe like never before. Learn how to mine your own Bitcoins, market them, and join mining pools and associated affiliate groups.

As well as a primer on how to use and mine in the Bitcoin ecosystem, this audiobook also provides an inside look at some of the triumphs and tragedies of this new mode of living with the personal testimonies of those whose whole world was changed by the seemingly random yet life-changing letters and numbers that make up the block chain.

In this audiobook, you will learn how to:

  • Use Bitcoin wallets and programs
  • Mine for your own Bitcoins
  • Understand the security of the blockchain
  • And a whole lot more!

Blockchain is one of those technologies that only come out once in a blue moon. In other words, it is an extremely rare form of innovation, the likes of which we haven’t seen in a while and are not likely to see for some time again. It has been likened to being a second Internet.

Not too bad for an application that initially came as a mere side affect of a then-unknown digital currency known as Bitcoin. These are all some pretty heavy and heady topics Mathew Scott tackles for us in this audiobook, and he manages to encapsulate the basics of them all extraordinarily well.

Where other guides merely highlight the most simplistic use cases of blockchain, this audiobook actually lifts up the hood and gives you a direct view of the engine that allows blockchain technology to run. If you would like to really learn the ins and outs of blockchain technology, then Mathew Scott’s comprehensive guide is for you!

High level overview.

Good high level overview of the basics of Bitcoin including the history of Bitcoin, the uses, as well as the advantages and disadvantages. I've had a lot of questions about Bitcoin and this helped fill in the gaps from getting started to the future of Bitcoin.

Nice overview

Much, much better than I thought it would be, esp from the sort of silly start, and not the infomercial I feared, but a nice overview of the history of the bitcoin. They didn't delve deeply into the white paper behind it but most questions were answered.

Excellent Book.

For me this was a great documentary on Bitcoin, seeing as how I did not understand much about it, after hearing and listening about it in the media. Now after watching I think the concept is really a great thing, as far as it has its own value that cannot be changed by anyone, and has a value that can be used universally around the globe.

Good discuss.

Informative documentary. I have been pretty interested in learning more about what bitcoin is for a while now. This film helped, but definitely did not fill in all the gaps in my understanding.

A Fantastic Edition.

There is a good progression in the book building on concepts explained previously, For a technical book, this can be quite challenging. The author has a humorous side as well when he describes the colorful characters of this new frontier.

This is a tremendous introduction to Bitcoin. If you are not technically minded, it's as good as you could possibly hope for.

Great Listen.

I say this as someone that has been in Bitcoin for a long time and has written a lot on the subject for the past few years. This is the best treatment of Bitcoin and money out there.

Best.

The book is well-researched, but not overly technical and should be accessible to all readers. It is the first Bitcoin book with economics as its primary focus and a must-listen for anyone involved in this space.

Clear and excellent discussion.

The amount of noise in the world of bitcoin is unbelievable. Many people seem to have an original theory about why some new technology will mean that certain new cryptocurrency is the future of money.

I strongly recommend this book.

It is particularly interesting also its explanations about how deflationary money will help us reach prosperity by helping capital accumulation. I strongly recommend this book.

MUST BE LISTEN!

This book is one of a very few that offer a clear and balanced introduction to what bitcion are, how they originated, and what the future might hold. This is not a book about bitcoin or the currency exchange markets in cryto, it will give you deep foundational understanding about how such a thing can possibly exist.

This is a very good book on a timely topic.

This is a very good book on a timely topic. I started listening it and quickly got stuck. Hopefully the course will give me enough background to finish the bitcoin book. There is also a Coursera course on this book. So, I am looking forward to getting through this book.

I have a good understanding of how Bitcoin works, but I never understood the economics of it until I listen this book.
