From the description:
"Everyone is talking about Bitcoin, Litecoin, Etherium and the 800+ other cryptocurrencies or how Bitcoin reached the 20,000$ price mark or even people making predictions for Bitcoin to reach half a million dollars in the next few years."

Just in time. laugh out loud
Now everybody wants to know how Bitcoin reached the $8400 price mark yesterday.

BTW, the "book" is 37 pages long.

Bitcoin enthusiasts, do you assume that Bitcoin will become a popular currency used by shoppers/online retailers within the next few years? Is that the assumption behind it's meteoric rise?

Or is there another reason why it's so highly valued?

Love bubbles. Rules #1 when in a bubble, sell what the bubble makers need! (Graphic cards, cases, hard wallet,...)
Like it was said in wolf of Wall Street! Get the freakin commissions, who cares what way it goes

I am not an enthusiast, but it seems to me that the bubble in price is due to people speculating the price will go up. It's like what happened in the housing bubble...people thought house prices would never go down and that they could sell their places before anything bad happened, like having to pay the mortgage. Then the bubble popped and a LOT of people got left holding onto property they couldn't afford.

I think I will get a Bitcoin Mortgage on my house:

$200,000 = 30 Bitcoins that I will owe

So (with interest) lets say I will owe 60 Bitcoins in 20 years time

In 20 years if you believe the speculation a bitcoin will be half a million dollars so I will need to payback only $30,000,000. Sounds like a good deal for my house - only 30 million dollars

Or maybe bitcoin will crash to $1000 by then and I will only have to pay back $60,000?

Or maybe I will just put it all on red in Vegas??

My 0.0000000002 BTC:

The emerging technologies (blockchain, DAG, hashgraph, etc. and associated utility apps ) will shape the future of transactions between any two entities, whether personal, consumer or corporate.

From a financial aspect, transactions will be faster (think no holds, no pending ACH reviews, almost immediate payment/receipt of verifiable cryptocurrency funds), have reduced fees (no extra charges incurred for handling/processing) and controlled solely by the sender and recipient (no need for intermediaries).

It may be entirely possible to extend the technologies to other areas such as patented/licensed content or intellectual property (as some ICO startups are trying to prove now, though not all are legitimate).

One major obstacle is wide-scale acceptance and adoption.

Traditional financial institutions and litigation entities that make their living from intermediary disputes/processing fees would be hard-pressed to welcome the technology with open-arms.

Unless they can find a way to monetize their services within these DLT (Distributed Ledger Technology) platforms, you can bet they'll fight tooth and nail to deny entry and adoption of cryptocurrency as viable and valid.

My guess is that they'll take too long to figure out how to simultaneously profit while protecting themselves against fraud that they'll just push to ban its use altogether.

Consider also that the amount of money involved and non-regulated space within which cryptocurrency operates has provided a playground for unscrupulous individuals/entities to scam the community further exacerbates the issue of security.

All I can suggest is that you attempt to make well-informed, strong-handed decisions with regards to investing in the space while it goes through the volatile swings.

Do your due diligence if you decide to invest, only invest what you are willing to consider a sunk cost and enjoy the roller-coaster ride of turbulence that is cryptocurrency!

It may well be worth it (or not) within the next few years if you're still around to see what happens.

Cheers and good luck!

But in this case it hasn't reached that level of a 'bubble' in that if it goes to 0 the stock market won't go into a tailspin. I'd argue it's still in early adopter phase, with truly functional utility coins/tokens providing a justification for their valuations far more than bitcoin does as a simple store of value. Bitcoin was a grand experiment which has led to the birth of a budding industry built on blockchain. It's since lots it's way due to scaling problems and infighting amongst miners/devs. In the future I think you'll be able to easily pay in any form of cryptocurrency through fiat conversion tools like Request Network.

Free does not equal quality. When you have 1000+ kindle books in your library you tend to get a bit picky and want to keep out the junk.

All of these 100 page or less books are worthless copy and paste info trying to make a quick buck.
