Curriculum

Section 1: Before Getting You Setup Using Bitcoin Here Is Your Introduction
03:41

Welcome to this introductory Bitcoin course. What my aim with this short course is to give you a grassroots understanding of Bitcoin, and make sure you get enough of an understanding to get started with this revolutionary cryptocurrency. So that’s our aim with this short course, nothing else, it’s a pure and simple short fully focussed course on getting you started with Bitcoin.

03:11

Get ready, because in just a moment I’m going to give you an over to Bitcoin. So what it is, and how it really works for us users. So you ready?

Now bitcoin is a unique type of crypto currency; it has no physical properties and is stored electronically. It’s the world’s first real working example of a cryptocurrency – one that can be traded and used in digital transactions.

04:03

In this lecture I want to give you an insight, well a history lesson as to how Bitcoin has evolved to date, just so you’re aware I’ll be highlighting one key thing from each year up until now as there’s so much in Bitcoins history. Now, by understanding it’s journey it’ll really give you a deeper understanding as to how Bitcoin has become the powerhouse of a cryptocurrency it is today.

02:39

In this lecture I want to explain the blockchain to you, as the blockchain is the complete underpinning of Bitcoin. Now what you see in front of you is the blockchain website, by the way this is also a wallet but more on that later, but as you can see all these are the transactions that are being processed right now by the blockchain.

Now the blockchain if you weren’t aware as a permanent database of bitcoin transactions across the globe.

Section 2: Lets Now Get You A Bitcoin Wallet So You Can Join The Bitcoin Revolution
08:16

So for this lecture I’m just going to give you a run through of all the Bitcoin wallets available to date, well the best ones on the market. To do this I’m enlisting the help of a colleague of mine, and his website 99 Bitcoins where he has in fact organised very clearly, the benefits and drawbacks of each wallet. In fact, Ofir the founder of 99 Bitcoins, which is this site, has co-instructed a Bitcoin course with me. It’s all about Bitcoin affiliate marketing, so check that out if you’re interested, or let me know and I can direct you to that.

03:00

Now all Bitcoin wallets have their range of pro’s and con’s, I personally use them for a range of different reasons. Whether it’s for day to day transactions, storing them for investment, or for frequent trading. They all serve different purposes for me.

Section 3: Here Is How You Can Get The First Pieces Of Bitcoin Into Your Wallet
06:57

So what exactly are Bitcoin faucet websites, and more importantly how do they work? This is more than likely a question on your mind, especially if you’ve heard the phrase “free bitcoins from bitcoin faucet websites” thrown around.

05:43

Of course there are hundreds, and more than likely thousands of Bitcoin faucet websites around the web today – a simple google search will throw up plenty. But the question here is, which ones should you spend your time on and trust? Because a lot of them are simply a waste of time. So in this lecture I’ll run you through the best bitcoin faucets on the web at this moment in time.

Section 4: As With Any Currency You May Want To Spend It And This Is How To Spend Bitcoin
07:07

So now you’ve purchased your first Bitcoins, and got them kept safe and secure in your chosen wallet, you’re probably wondering what to spend them on!

The increase in the amount of retailers accepting Bitcoin as payment has been incredible in the past year or so; with over 30,000 businesses and charities now also registered. And this trend is set to continue. 

02:22

I’m not sure how many of you are familiar with this site here purse, but it’s a fantastic concept. Amazon don’t accept Bitcoins as payment, you can use the Purse platform to get around that and buy items off Amazon with Bitcoin.

In fact, as it says here you can save up-to 15% purchasing this way. So it really does give you an incentive to buy with Bitcoins.

Section 5: This Is How You Can Sell Bitcoin And Potentially Profit From The Volatility
05:48

By now we’ve taken you through the steps to purchase bitcoin, how to store it securely and where you can buy shiny new things with it.

But what happens when you want to sell up?

01:53

In the last lecture I mentioned a few websites that you should consider using, depending on of course which route you choose to sell your Bitcoins through. In this lecture I just want to highlight those websites for you again, so you know exactly what website to use for exactly which type of way you choose to sell Bitcoins.

Section 6: Lets Now Conclude On Bitcoin And Ensure You're Fully Setup Using It
04:05

I want to talk to you about the opportunities that Bitcoin is going to experience in 2016, and whether that will mean Bitcoin has its best year to date. So let me know your thoughts after I’ve gone through everything on whether you think Bitcoin does have the best to succeed in 2016 over all the other years it has been around.
