Bitcoin, Bitcoin, Bitcoin. Unless you’ve been under a rock the last year, you’ve probably heard someone speaking about the cryptocurrency, Bitcoin. You are probably wondering; what is Bitcoin? Why are people so excited about it? Why are financial news channels like Bloomberg and CNBC adding it to their daily scheduled reporting? You probably also noticed there is a featured documentary on Netflix. If you are looking for answers to these questions, you will love this course.
This course will teach you about the origins of Bitcoin. Why it exists, who created it and why you should look into it and other cryptocurrencies as a way to diversify your asset portfolio. Over the last year, the cryptocurrency space is up over 1100%. Some assets like Ethereum are up over 3100%. These gains have made many early adopters rich. Yet most people still don’t understand, how to even get started. If you are one of those people, this class is for you.
In 2013, I began telling all of my family and friends about Bitcoin, when the price was $136. I learned everything I could about it, bought some coins and even began building my first Bitcoin product, the Pheeva Hot Wallet. I even gave away Bitcoin to my mother. I knew that we were entering a new era. The same way the internet changed how we receive information, blockchains have and will change how we handle money. The future is here. And we are just getting started.
