This was interesting, but I felt like it was a far cry from any "bitcoin for dummies" guide, as there were large gaps in its explanation of the pragmatics of such a system for the layman. I still took a bit from it though, and it raises some interesting points to consider for the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bitcoin's book of Genesis 25 July 2015
By Steven J Hernandez - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is the now famous "white paper" written by Satoshi Nakamoto introducing Bitcoin. I don't pretend to understand all of it, and haven't taken the time to play with the mathematic formulas therein.

However, after reading it a couple of times, I do now have a better grasp of what makes Bitcoin a store of wealth (money) and not just another currency or payment system like PayPal--and that distinction is important. Basically, the block-chain software/technology makes it very impractical and/or nearly impossible to counterfeit Bitcoin. Also, equally important, is that it decentralizes commerce like never before, which should give business and commerce a flexibility and fluidity it's never had before.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just Satoshi Nakamoto's White Paper 28 July 2011
By Derric Atzrott - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is just a copy of Satoshi Nakamoto's now infamous white paper describing the Bitcoin peer-to-peer currency system.

For this reason, I would recommend purchasing it if you frequently need to show off the basic technical principles of the Bitcoin system to people new to the system. If you do not frequently do that, I wouldn't bother buying it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Total fraud 6 May 2012
By Eric - Published on Amazon.com
Copying stuff fromm the internet and posting it with someone else's nickname is so uncool. For future victim's: Just look for Satoshi Nakamoto's paper on the internet.
