Publisher's Summary

Industry Expert Mark Jeffrey is an award-winning serial entrepreneur of innovative technology companies backed by Tier One investors, and now he breaks down Bitcoin for you in simple, easy-to-understand language!
It is still very early in the Bitcoin game: only 0.03% of the world owns bitcoins; we still have 99.97% left to go! Knowing the contents of this book is literally like knowing about the potential of the Internet back in 1993!
In this volume, you'll learn:


Exactly what Bitcoin is - and isn't (for example: how is this different from Paypal? Hint: Very)
How Bitcoins works, explained in everyday, non-technical language, with metaphors that are easy for anyone to understand
How to get your own Bitcoins right now!
How to spend Bitcoins - and accept them
How to Mine bitcoins (and learn exactly how mining works!)
A detailed, simple explanation of the "blockchain" mechanism - the "flux capacitor", if you will - that makes Bitcoin possible!
The history of Bitcoin, as well as up-to-date stories and anecdotes of how it is being used right now!
How you can protect yourself against Bitcoin theft and scams
Links and recommendations of Bitcoin products
This is exactly the book I wish someone had handed to me when I was first learning about Bitcoin.

What you need to know about Bitcoin

Very thorough explanation of Bitcoin. However, I felt their were too many times that it said, "More on this later." Introducing topics, but continuing them later was not so easy to follow as an audiobook.

Well Written and Narrated

What made the experience of listening to Bitcoin Explained Simply the most enjoyable?

Mark Jeffery has written and enjoyable treatment of what could have easily been a dry and boring exercise. Narrator Bob Milhoan does a great job of keeping it interesting with his inflection and pacing.


What did you like best about this story?

It is very easy to understand for bitcoin beginners.


Which scene was your favorite?

It's a 'how-to' book, so there are no scenes.


If you could give Bitcoin Explained Simply a new subtitle, what would it be?

If you can't 'get' this, unplug your computer and put it in a closet.
