Description

Welcome to the complete cryptocurrency for beginners course! Would you like to get started investing in cryptocurrencies but have the feeling that you don't know too much about them yet? Then this course is for you! 

In this course, I will take you from where you are right now and explore with you the world of cryptocurrencies and the blockchain technology.

So, what exactly are you going to gain from this cryptocurrencies for beginners course? 

In the first part of this course, we will talk about the basics of cryptocurrencies, the blockchain technology, cryptography as well as Bitcoin and Ethereum. 

Late on, we will learn where to trade them, I will explain what wallets are and show you how you can buy so called Altcoins, smaller coins with huge growth potential. 

Afterwards, we will focus on mining crypto currencies. You will learn how mining works, which computers and software to use, what the simple payment verification as well as SegWit is, what forks are, and you will be able to differentiate between PAPER WALLETS, MIND WALLETS, SOFT WALLETS & HARD WALLETS. 

You will additionally know what exchanges such as Poloniex or Bittrex are and how to store your cryptocurrencies safely. 

While other courses leave you confused and only give you a glimpse on cryptocurrency trading, this is an A-Z guide - the complete cryptocurrencies for beginners course!
