Hey there!

Are you just now getting into Bitcoin?

Good. That means we’re in this together.

Because it wasn’t that long ago when I got my introduction to Bitcoin too.

I had heard of Bitcoin years ago. Mostly in relation to dark corners of the web I knew nothing about. And didn’t want to.

The story was… that it was kind of like video game tokens.

Only for criminals.

Okay, definitely nothing for me there.

So it wasn’t until the end of 2017 that I truly caught on.

That’s when the crazy rise in price caught some mainstream attention.

And you know what they say… when the mainstream media starts talking about it… that’s when you know it’s too late. (Don’t worry… it’s not.)

But still… I was curious enough to check it out.

Sure enough, Bitcoin was on fire!

Just over $1,000 for the first time in January 2017, it rose to $20,089 later that year, mid-day on December 17th.

Oh my gosh, EVERYONE jumped on the bandwagon then.

Thank goodness I mostly watched from the sidelines.

Because sadly, a lot of people lost a lot of money.

And not just on Bitcoin.

Shitcoins they were called.

Pump and dumps.

Scams.

Lots of “founders” who weren’t building anything. They simply took the money and ran.

And who wants to be in that environment?

No, thank you!

But… the silver lining was I learned how to create accounts on the exchanges.

And got educated about private keys, software wallets, and cold storage.

And while it took some effort to navigate those things, especially back then…

Participating made it not scary anymore.

Since then, I’ve learned even more (see what I mean here), have gotten more comfortable, and am ready to stop lurking on the sidelines.

What about you?

Are you ready for your introduction to Bitcoin?

Cool!

(And not just Bitcoin. There are a lot of amazing projects contributing to this space that we’ll talk about too.)

So follow along and learn about blockchains… cryptography… mining… wallets… segwit… lightning… and more.

From a regular person, learning it too.

First up…

What Is Bitcoin Anyway?
