So what is Bitcoin, how does it work, and why won’t people stop talking about it? Those are all great questions that we’ll answer (mostly) in this book. Bite Size Bitcoin is your handy guide to the world’s best-known cryptocurrency. We’ll cover the basics and the good bits. By the time you’ve finished this book, you’ll know how to set up a Bitcoin wallet, put bitcoins in said wallet, and keep them there. Along the way you’ll learn about million dollar pizzas, heists, how the Allies won the Second World War with math, and why you should never, ever reuse passwords. It’ll be fun!
About the author
Laurel Murphy, Jon Lea and the Coincub team
At Coincub, we value honest, straightforward communication. In this book, you can expect a no-nonsense approach to Bitcoin. By the end of it, we hope that you’ll feel empowered to make informed decisions about Bitcoin, whether that’s choosing to invest or deciding to steer clear.
We’re less focused on the ideology and hype behind Bitcoin and more on the practical realities, like regulation from country to country and password management. We’ll also talk about some of the cool stuff too.
This book is not complete or authoritative, and does not offer any financial advice, but we hope it’s helpful to you as you learn more about Bitcoin.
