In this book, you won't find political manifestos or even a shred of conjecture about investment strategies. Pritzker deftly avoids using this as an opportunity to preach why everyone should hold BTC, allowing instead for the objective facts surrounding the tech to demonstrate why this is such revolutionary technology.
if you're like me and have bought a small amount of BTC from some sense of FOMO, but without really understanding how it works, this book has the power to turn you from a trend-chasing speculator into an informed investor.
Inventing Bitcoin is strikes the perfect note. It clearly breaks down the important concepts that make Bitcoin such an extraordinary new technology.
I now have a much better understanding of the blockchain, mining, confirmations, speed of transactions, and more!
You'll come away with a very strong understanding of how Bitcoin works, without needing degrees in math, coding, or economics.
I consider this CORE reading for anyone interested in Bitcoin. :) <3
The book also includes where to find more information and reliable resources about Bitcoin.
Highly recommend this book if you want to know what you’re talking about when people ask you questions about Bitcoin or if you have questions about it.
This book also contains simple explanations of more advanced topics like Proof Of Work, mining, forks, 51% Attacks, economic considerations, etc.
In just 100 pages, you can get a basic understanding of both how and why bitcoin works. Not only does he do a great job of helping newcomers to understand Bitcoin, but he also references some other more in-depth bitcoin books that will help explain more about the economics and technicals of how Bitcoin works.
I cannot recommend this book enough. If you are new to bitcoin or want to help your friends/family to better understand Bitcoin, this is the absolute first book that I would suggest that they (or anyone) read.
