In 2008, while the world was busy panicking about the global financial crisis, a computer programmer going by the name of Satoshi Nakamoto posted a message on an out-of-the-way mailing list. ´I´ve been working on a new electronic cash system,´ he said. Nobody seemed to care. ‘It might make sense to get some just in case it catches on,’ he suggested. How right he was. What he had programmed would become the world’s most famous alternative currency – Bitcoin. It would catch the zeitgeist in a way only two people foresaw. A cult of devotees was inspired – economists, anarchists, speculators, computer coders, libertarians, criminals, entrepreneurs. Early adopters would become multi-millionaires. Now the suggestion is that Bitcoin will do to banking and finance what email did to the postal service and what the internet did to publishing: destroy old monopolies, creating new opportunities for the masses. Some even suggest that the technology behind Bitcoin – known as the block chain – will reform our Western systems of democracy, giving us the revolution so many are clamouring for. In this gripping book, Dominic Frisby tells the amazing story of Bitcoin. He solves the mystery surrounding the identity of Bitcoin’s secretive creator. He shows how Bitcoin is going to change the world. And, perhaps most of all, he does something nobody else has hitherto been able to do: he explains in layman’s language how the bally thing works. 1.

Traditional currencies operate on a centralized model that is heavily regulated by the national government that issues it. Bitcoin, however, is a decentralized virtual currency that was created in 2008-2009 by a mysterious figure known only as Satoshi Nakamoto. In recent years, its growing popularity has caused its value to skyrocket. Bitcoin is not regulated by any centralized institution, but rather by the vast peer-to-peer network that enables it to exist and function. This keeps it from being manipulated and/or used to support the interests of a few wealthy, elite individuals in power. In this way, it functions as a ´´people´s currency´´. There is a lot of hype surrounding Bitcoin. It has been featured in news and periodical articles, as well as television shows. It seems to be a buzzword that is quickly becoming embedded in popular culture. Many people have heard of it and know that it is a ´´virtual currency,´´ but what does that mean?Bitcoin is used in countries all around the world. Some countries, such as Japan and Switzerland, are openly embracing it and supporting it with government policies that accept it. Other countries, such as the United States, are trying to find ways to regulate it, while others, such as China, have entirely banned any transactions that use Bitcoin, under penalty of imprisonment. Because it is such a far-reaching global phenomenon - and continuing to grow by the day - anyone would do well to understand exactly what it is. Bitcoin is safer than many other financial systems because it is not subject to regulation or manipulation, and because its underlying system, blockchain, is inherently resistant to hacks and security security breaches that plague other financial institutions. However, there have been infamous hacks of Bitcoin wallets, in which people lost large quantities of money. Among other things, this audiobook will help you know with confidence how you can remain safe and secure on the Bit 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dean Eby.

You have probably heard of Bitcoin. It has garnered a lot of attention lately, both among Bitcoin enthusiasts and in the mainstream media. There is a lot of hype surrounding Bitcoin. It has been featured in news and periodical articles, as well as television shows. It seems to be a buzzword that is quickly becoming embedded in popular culture. Many people have heard of it and know that it is a ´´virtual currency´´, but what does that mean? What is a virtual currency? What is Bitcoin even good for, and how can you use it? Bitcoin is a virtual, peer-to-peer currency that is not regulated by any government. It does not exist in hard form, such as cash; rather than being minted by a treasury or other centralized regulating body, it is mined by programmers who solve complex mathematical and computational problems to release blocks of Bitcoins into the Bitcoin pool. Because there is no centralized financial body regulating Bitcoin, its value is not set or predetermined by any one authority. Rather, it derives its value entirely from consumer demand for it. When more users buy and make transactions in Bitcoin, its value goes up. And consumer demand has been high: In less than a decade, its value has gone from less than a penny to thousands of dollars. Besides having a steadily increasing value, Bitcoin is safer than many other financial systems, because it is not subject to regulation or manipulation and because of its underlying system, the blockchain is inherently resistant to hacks and security breaches that plague other financial institutions. Inside this book you will find: What is Bitcoin? History of Bitcoin Getting started Tips for investing in Bitcoin Choosing a Bitcoin wallet Getting your first Bitcoin Purchasing Bitcoins Mining Finding the current price of Bitcoin Historical price trends Sending and receiving Bitc 1.
