Descripción de la editorial
From the author of Mind Hacking and founder of Bitcoin Market Journal comes the first book to explain the money-making secrets behind bitcoin and blockchain in a user-friendly format.
When John Hargrave first invested in cryptocurrency, the price of a single bitcoin was about $125; a few years later, that same bitcoin was worth $20,000. He wasn’t alone: this flood of new money is like the early days of the Internet, creating a new breed of “blockchain billionaires.”
Sir John has unlocked their secrets.
In Blockchain for Everyone, Sir John reveals the formula for investing in bitcoin and blockchain, using real-life stories, easy-to-understand examples, and a healthy helping of humor. Packed with illustrations, Blockchain for Everyone explains how (and when) to buy bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, and other blockchain assets, with step-by-step instructions.
Blockchain for Everyone is the first blockchain investing book written for the layperson: a guide that helps everyone understand how to build wealth wisely. It’s the new investing manifesto!
Long on braggadocio and short on content, this guide to blockchain investing from Media Shower CEO Hargrave is a sterling example of the book that should have been a magazine article. As a veteran bitcoin investor himself Hargrave lost all his money in the dot-com bubble, then gained it back with blockchain he's determined to help ordinary investors build wealth and become "internet millionaires." Offering cheerful cartoons to explain how the field works, he goes over blockchain and the technology that enables it, with the stated goal of making blockchain interesting, fun, and accessible to neophytes. Discussing incorporating the practice into one's investment portfolio without risking everything, he talks about what the upper limits of the cryptocurrency boom might be, including the rise, fall, and rise that have already happened. His larger goal encouraging more people to invest in bitcoin so the industry can grow more sustainably than in the past is laudable, but self-praising stories make up the bulk of the book, and Hargrave's language is often hyperbolic, as with his claim that readers can be "reborn" through bitcoin investment. Thanks to these lapses, his book feels more like an overenthusiastic advertisement than a viable guide.
