Publisher's Summary

Okay, so what's Bitcoin?
It's not an actual coin, it's "cryptocurrency", a digital form of payment that is produced ("mined") by lots of people worldwide. It allows for peer-to-peer transactions instantly worldwide, for free or at very low cost.
Bitcoin was invented after decades of research into cryptography by software developer Satoshi Nakamoto (believed to be a pseudonym), who designed the alogorithm and introduced it in 2009. His true identity remains a mystery.
How does Bitcoin work?
Internet users transfer digital assets (bits) to each other on a network. There is no Online bank; rather, Bitcoin has been described as an Internet-wide distributed ledger. Users buy Bitcoin with cash or by selling a product or service for Bitcoin. Bitcoin wallets store and use this digital currency. Users may sell out of this virtual ledger by trading their Bitcoin to someone else who wants in. Anyone can do this, anywhere in the world.
There are smartphone apps for conducting mobile Bitcoin transactions, and Bitcoin exchanges are populating the Internet.

Another great intro.

I have listened to a few short audiobooks about crypto currencies in the last couple of months. This one had some really interesting historical bits that I found really fascinating.

Get set up to deal in these markets today. This audiobook might not answer all of your questions, but it will give you enough to start asking the right questions. This would be a helpful intro for anyone interested in getting into the game.

The content was well organized and the narrator did a great job.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Enough information to get started

Bitcoin for Beginners is a great introduction to the world of Bitcoins. Anyone who is interested in starting to trade could do so with the information provided here. Just keep in mind this is a grand overview. It sparked my interest enough to do more research and possibly start purchasing/trading some bitcoin.

I requested a free preview copy of this audiobook and I am leaving a voluntary review.
