Publisher's Summary

Bitcoins have shaken the financial world to its very core in a way that no one could have predicted when they first came into existence less than a decade ago. Since their inception, billions have been made and lost in a quest to maximize profit while minimizing risk. If you are looking for ways to do the former while minimizing your chance at the latter, then Bitcoin: A Beginner's Guide is the book that you have been waiting for.
Thousands of years ago, commodities such as cows and chickens were essentially considered currencies and were bartered amongst those living in isolated groups to form basic micro-economies. From there, modernization and urbanization brought about the creation of currencies as we know them today, coin and paper money that is issued by a central government and, theoretically at least, backed by an asset like silver and gold. Cryptocurrencies are the next logical step in this process and bitcoin, since it was the first to see mass adoption is currently the forerunner in this space.
Due to a mix of extreme popularity and a high degree of volatility, bitcoins offer up a means of investing that has the potential to be extremely lucrative while at the same time providing practically no barrier to entry. Inside you learn ways to take advantage of this fact to invest in them in such a way that you have a chance to see extreme profits virtually overnight.
