How to explain Bitcoin to your mum

It’s hard enough explaining what Bitcoin is to someone who has never heard of it, but where do you even start for someone who doesn’t use the internet? Or have a mobile phone? Like, for example, my mum.

My new book is the answer. Written with the absolute beginner in mind and using non-technical analogies, it will take you through everything from understanding what it is, how it works, who runs it and what could happen next as use of this fascinating – and divisive – alternative to money spreads throughout the world.

So, whether you’re a total novice and want to learn all the essential facts, a Bitcoin guru who wants to find simple ways to explain it to other people or just curious about the whole thing, this book is for you. It even comes with FREE BITCOIN to get you started on your journey into the world of digital money! Don’t worry, it comes with full instructions (see below)

This is the book I wished I had when I started my own journey into Bitcoin!
