Summary

The whole truth about Bitcoin…So you can decide for yourself !

 

Bitcoin: it’s the worldwide virtual currency everyone’s talking about. But most explanations of Bitcoin are completely bewildering—they’re either written by people in thrall with it or by those appalled by the very notion of an alternative currency. What’s the real story? How does Bitcoin work? Where did it come from? What’s it good for? How do you get, store, and spend Bitcoins? And should you?

 

The Ultimate Guide to Bitcoin answers all your questions—honestly, objectively, and in plain English. Michael Miller has spent his life demystifying complicated ideas and technologies: he’s helped more than 1,000,000 readers in over 150 easy-tounderstand books. Now, he explains Bitcoin in ways everyone can understand.

 

Miller will help you decide for yourself if Bitcoin should be part of your life. And if the answer is “Yes,” he’ll help you make the most of it!
