Summary

This crash course includes: 

  • Cryptocurrency investment 
  • Strategies to be followed 
  • Potential cryptocurrencies to invest 
  • Other altcoins and their investment potential 
  • Quick brief on bitcoin investment portfolio 

The primary concept of this book is to take you through the basic cryptocurrency investment strategies that can be implemented to earn money. This book will help you identify the best crypto coins that will suit your investment needs. The cryptocurrency ecosystem had a breakthrough last year (2017) when the popular cryptocurrency bitcoin’s rolling price value brought new investors into the crypto market. 

This made many of the cryptocurrency enthusiasts and critics more excited and gave them a reason to look forward to more news this year (2018). They expect 2018 to be an explosive year for the world of cryptocurrency, which might bring new trends to this space. Bitcoin saw a huge dip in its percentage for the first time in cryptocurrency history with its market share going down by 33 percent. Critics feel that 2018 will be the year when altcoins and Ethereum may just rule the charts, topping the list of altcoins for this year. Though Ethereum has its own scaling issues to handle, the recent price surge in the crypto token ‘Ether’ against the Ether-bitcoin ratio in the beginning days of 2018 seems to be a positive thing to look for. 

With the sudden rise in the number of investors, cryptocurrency exchanges struggled technically to deal with the surging user bases and the most popular exchange ‘Coinbase’ saw more than 800 percent growth in its user base by the end of 2017. There were a few other exchanges, such as, Bittrex and Binance, which temporarily closed their registrations to deal with the immense demand from new and existing investors.

This is a mind-blowing book.

This book does a good job of summarizing the basics of the crypto currency market. There is nothing mind-blowing here, no rocket science, but it has been extremely helpful for me as a beginner.

Highly recommanded in this book!

Thanks, the author! This book was an unintimidating tech listen on a topic that many would-be well-informed to listen (hear). In fact, it was so well explained that it came across more as a societal information piece than a technology publication. Even the "liberty to skip" techno section was quite tolerable!

I purchased three more books.

After listening to the audiobook, I bought the hard copy. I purchased three more to give to friends and coworkers. I love the fact that it is short and easy to understand. I am re-reading certain sections of the book for inspiration and a reminder of what to do or not to do when investing in cryptocurrency.
