Summary

Master the future of digital gold aka bitcoin!  

Over the fall of 2017, bitcoin reached an all-time high of more than $7,000 despite the fact that more than 50 percent of all Americans still have a hard time explaining what exactly a bitcoin is or why they would want one for anything other than investment purposes. While it isn't yet mainstream, cryptocurrency is here to stay and if you are looking to learn how you can put them to work for you then Bitcoin - Ultimate Beginner’s Guide to Cryptocurrency Technologies - Mining, Investing and Trading in Digital Gold is the audiobook that you have been waiting for.

As with any burgeoning new technology, bitcoin offers up many different opportunities for those who want to take advantage of the boom phase of the technology’s growth. Bitcoin is known for its extremely high level of volatility, which means that it is possible to see serious returns in a very short period of time. Case in point, it rose nearly $2,000 between April and August of 2017. This great potential for reward comes with a great potential for risk. This audiobook outlines the risks that you can learn to mitigate as much as possible by offering suggestions. Alternately, it is possible to verify the transactions of others and turn a profit while doing so. This audiobook also offers a step-by-step guide to mining bitcoin successfully.

So, what are you waiting for? Now is the time to take advantage of the strongest technology boom since the creation of the Internet, and to gain control of your financial future. Buy this audiobook today!

This audiobook covers:

  • The secret history of blockchain, the technology that started it all
  • Easy ways to find the best bitcoin exchange for you
  • Everything you need to look for in order to ensure your mining pool is working for your best interests
  • And more

Extraordinary audiobook!

A great little listen for anyone wanting to better understand the relatively new technology. I've done some of my own research online but wanted to jump into something more technical and detailed, and I'm so glad I found this audiobook. Very easy to listen to and highly comprehensive. I loved the sections on the cryptography and algorithms behind the blockchain. If you're looking for a cryptocurrency investment audiobook this isn't it, but the author says he has explained one of those as well, and considering the way he the author I'm assuming it would be a good listen too. He gets the information across in a very smooth way.

I’m happy with this book

Well, I learned how to buy and store bitcoin and by mid-morning, I had done just that. I followed the step-by-step guidance in this audiobook and successfully purchased bitcoin and a secure wallet to store it in. I appreciated the detailed chapters on securing cryptocurrency.

Such a great place to start!

This book is such a great place to start! I don’t come from an investment background, so it takes time to clearly and thoroughly touch on all the basics of investing. The technical analysis portion goes into great detail about fibs and trend lines.

Clear view

Everyone has heard of Bitcoin, but few people know what it is. When you listen to this book, you will know enough to have an idea of what Bitcoin is, what it can be used for, and what 'mining' is. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to know about the subject, as Bitcoin is going to be in just about everything very shortly.

Useful and helpful.

I am relatively new to this phenomenon and a little intimidated by the blizzard of news and forecasts about Bitcoin and its cousins. This audiobook is extremely useful and helpful.

Helpful

A fantastic resource that gives the listener an insight into Bitcoin basics, money, inflation, mining, scarcity, and much more. If you were on the fence about Bitcoin and have some unanswered questions. Look no further.
