Cryptocurrency Guide for Newcomers

Your guide to the world of digital money

About the Book

This book is a gentle introduction to cryptocurrencies. I will give you a bit of history, talk about Bitcoin and alt-coins -- everything in a clear and understandable way as if you'd be one of my family members asking about crypto during Christmas dinner.

What you'll get:

  • I introduce you to Bitcoin and the world of cryptocurrencies in simple terms without many buzzwords so you are onboarded easily
  • I share my best practices on how to convert your fiat (USD, EUR, AUD, etc) to crypto via exchanges
  • I share with you my choice of wallets where I store and grow my crypto assets
  • I tell you what DeFi is and how it works
  • I share with you my practices how I employ manual and automated trading methods -- even without any trading knowledge
  • I give you some options on how you can earn free cryptocurrency
  • I give you a bunch of updates even after the book is finished where I introduce you to different crypto projects just as a bonus

I am not a financial advisor, although I have studied economics this doesn't count. Therefore, if it seems to you I am giving financial advice: I am not. It's just my opinion. And as it is a very speedy market (well, Bitcoin moved +30% in 2 weeks), take care of the date I am writing everything. However, the backbone will be valid over time.
