Mastering Ethereum


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

From The Author Of The Top Selling Book "Cryptocurrency: 5 Expert Secrets For Beginners: Investing Into Bitcoin, Ethereum And Litecoin" If you're new to Cryptocurrencies, you may be wondering what on earth is the term 'Ethereum'? I myself was curious too. I wondered if it was some sort of new sci-fi movie that was released or an extension of the never ending Transformers saga. In some ways it could be, but that we will have to wait. In this present day, Ethereum is a new age revolution, being the second biggest cryptocurrency after Bitcoin. It has made headlines all around the world being the leader in alternative coins, allowing itself to explode in value in 2017. I myself started investing into cryptocurrencies with Ethereum, and if you've read my previous book, 'Mastering Bitcoin', you'd know I started investing because of my friend. Not only did he make an outstanding 400% return on his investment, he told me his next investment project was Ethereum. I was curious to know what this was and I studied everything I could about Ethereum, and here we are. The multi-billionaire investor Warren Buffet once said; "Never invest in a business you cannot understand." In this book, we will first familiarize you with the essentials of Ethereum, explain everything you need to know about the cryptocurrency, so that you become smarter than the average Ethereum investor. Here is what you will learn... - Fundamentals of Ethereum - History of Ethereum - Benefits and Risks Investing into Ethereum - Ethereum Mining - Security of Ethereum - The Future of Ethereum Be the smart person you are and make the wise decision today.
