BITCOIN: Ultimate guide to understanding blockchain, bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, smart contracts and the future of money (Cryptocurrency technologies)

This bundle contains 2 books:

BOOK 1

Mastering Bitcoin & Cryptocurrency Technologies - Mining, Investing and Trading in the Internet of Money

"Virtual currencies, perhaps most notably Bitcoin, have captured the imagination of some, struck fear among others, and confused the heck out of the rest of us." - Thomas Carper, US-Senator

Join the technological revolution that has rocked the financial world. But is Bitcoin really an investor's grab-bag? Mastering Bitcoin is your guide through the outwardly complex world of Bitcoin, providing the knowledge you need to cut your slice in the internet of money. Whether you're looking into the next killer venture, investing in a startup, or simply curious about the technology, this review by Nakamoto provides essential detail to get you started.

Bitcoin is still in its early stages and yet it has already spawned a multi-billion-dollar global economy and forced the financial world to start thinking of transactions in a completely new way. A lot of us give the capacity of storing money, saving money, sending money to others and receive money electronically for granted because we are part of the 50% lucky of the world, but 2.5 billion adults in the world does not have access to bank accounts. A crypto currency can give to millions of people access to having a bank in their pocket through a cell phone, opening commerce to masses of new entrepreneurs and consumers.

But, a part from the sociopolitical consequences of the new "currency with wings", if you were to talk about Bitcoin with your grandmother, probably the first thing she would be asking would be "It sounds great up to now ...but how can I use it?? I mean, do I just go up to the grocery store and give them a number or code or something?" Your grandma is right; also learning the basics is essential.

This is why Nakamoto's book gives you:

oA broad introduction of Bitcoin and its underlying blockchain--ideal for non-technical users, investors, and business executives

oAn explanation of the technical foundations of Bitcoin and cryptographic currencies

oDetails of the Bitcoin decentralized network, on Bictoin mining, investing, transactions and how to choose a secure wallet for your Bitcoin, and how to calculate your net income with Bitcoin

oAn overview on other cryptocurrencies: Litecoin, Ripple, Peercoin, Dogecoin and Ethereum

oThe limits and risks of the bitcoin system: what does the future hold

BOOK 2

Blockchain Blueprint: the ultimate guide to understanding blockchain, bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, smart contracts and the internet of money

"If the essence of life is information carried in DNA, then society and civilization are just colossal memory systems" - Batou

Some say that a way for understanding the progress of the modern world is by keeping an eye on the innovations that occur in the world of data processing. A new tech solution is launched approximately every decade: first, there have been processors and personal computers; then the Internet revolution, followed by smart phones and ending with social networks.

The current emerging innovation of this decade may be the connected world of computing relying on blockchain encryption.

Blockchain technology can be used to record and track details of each transaction or property of any business, including tangible assets such as real estate, and intangible assets such as intellectual property. It can also be used to automate contracts through so-called Smart Contracts, greatly simplifying the creation and execution process of contracts between parties. In this book, high tech expert Pat Nakamoto answers your questions concerning the future of Blockchain technology along with addressing different major developments linked to it, like Smart Contracts, Fintech and Ethereum.
