The sudden rise of cryptocurrency across the world has left many individuals, as well as governments, feeling perplexed. How can we use them, how do we store them, can they be regulated and are they safe? – these are the most common questions asked. And these are exactly what Amit Bhardwaj aims to tackle with his pioneering new e-book, ‘Cryptocurrency for Beginners’.
Bhardwaj, the founder of Amaze Mining & Research Limited, offers context and clarity on the relatively unexplored and technology-dense world of cryptocurrencies, in a beginner friendly way. This is his third book in the series, after ‘Cryptocurrency Trading for Beginners’ & ‘Cryptocurrency Mining for Beginners’.
“Blockchain and cryptocurrencies are set to transform the world with their efficient solutions. However, the promise and power of cryptocurrencies remain to be unleashed meaningfully - as limited awareness across stakeholder categories, plays spoilsport,” said Amit Bhardwaj, Founder - Amaze Mining & Research Limited & author of the e-book.
Priced attractively at Rs 1, 499, the e-book can be downloaded at http://Studyblockchain.org. A part of the sale proceeds will go towards supporting the initiatives of Wockhardt Foundation and CRY.
“My book has a simple objective - making the readers realise that blockchain is just like the internet or a motorbike - one doesn’t need to know the underlying technology to use it. The book empowers readers with requisite knowledge of the concept of blockchain and helps them appreciate its massive potential,” added Bhardwaj.
Cryptocurrency guru Bhardwaj started doing Bitcoin mining in the year 2012 and built his empire which now owns 5% hashing power of bitcoin network. He has invested in many first generation entrepreneurs in blockchain space. Some of the names include Airbitz, Alphapoint, Rockminer etc. He is a known figure in the Blockchain community and a renowned speaker.
Simply put, cryptocurrencies such as ‘Bitcoins’ have no physical form. They are basically digital currencies that use hi-end encryption techniques to generate new units. The book decodes this world of block-chain and bitcoins for those very new to the concept. It also delves into how cryptocurrencies work, the future of cryptocurrency, how secure they are, the practical use of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies around the world, regulations governing them and basics of cryptocurrency mining and trading.
