Cryptocurrency: What The World’s Best Blockchain Investors Know – That You Don’t

by Stephen Satoshi

Why do some people almost always make money in the cryptocurrency market?

You’ve probably seen Bitcoin prices fell by more than 50% since the start of the year.

You’re thinking that the market has seen its best days.

And there’s no more money to be made in crypto.

Well think again.

You see, cryptocurrency has been here before.

The market has seen big losses in small spaces of time.

But the major thing people overlook is, these losses are always followed by even bigger gains.

Because cryptocurrency now has more mainstream adoption than ever.

And what you may not know is, private investments in blockchain companies have increased by 800% in the past 12 months

Tech giants like Amazon may even launch their own cryptocurrency by the end of the year.

How do I know this? Because amazoncryptocurrency.com was registered by Amazon’s legal department in late 2017.

You see, the investment opportunities in cryptocurrency and blockchain technology go way beyond Bitcoin, Ethereum and even altcoins.

Traditional blockchain securities have huge opportunity, that almost no one is talking about.

And no, this is not just blindly throwing money at every individual stock with “blockchain” or “crypto” in the name – we won’t be repeating the mistakes we saw in the DOTCOM boom

In Cryptocurrency: What the World’s Best Blockchain Investors Know – That You Don’t you will discover:

  • Find out if you are paying as much as 50% more for Bitcoin than you should – Page 45
  • How this little known secret allowed one Wall Street fund to produce gains of 12% in a bad market – Page 35
  • The only place you can openly trade stocks and cryptocurrency side-by-side – Page 59
  • The 3 biggest red flags to watch out for before investing in an ICO – Page 29
  • The answer to the big Ethereum question investors have been asking – Page 42
  • How to invest in publicly traded blockchain companies, using your regular brokerage account – Page 73
  • What Bitcoin futures really mean for the market – Page 48
  • â?¦and much, much more

    Aren’t cryptocurrencies risky?

    Like any investment, they carry a certain amount of risk, but cryptocurrencies are now more legitimate than ever.

    Even JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon, who once called Bitcoin a “fraud” said he now “believes in the technology behind it.”

    In fact one Hedge Fund CEO was quoted as saying the “Cryptocurrency game hasn’t even started yet”

    And cryptocurrency and blockchain technology is making more new millionaires now, than any other field of investment.

    by Scott Lewis

    Have you always wanted to know more about cryptocurrency but were afraid to ask simple questions?

    Are you a complete beginner and want to get more involved in the world of cryptocurrency but don’t know where to begin?


    Cryptocurrency: An Ultimate Concise Guide to Understanding Everything You Need to Know about Cryptocurrency by Scott N. Lewis is your ultimate guide to help get you started on your journey to learning more about cryptocurrency.

    The value of several cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other altcoins have been rising and changing every day and with it is people’s interest in cryptocurrency. This book aims to help even a layman understand what cryptocurrency is and clear all the misconceptions and myths people have about it. Scott Lewis presents the topic of cryptocurrency in the most easy-to-understand manner without confusing and complex details to help you learn it quickly and efficiently.


    The first part of this book is going to explain to you the concept of cryptocurrencies. In general, you can understand cryptocurrencies as money that doesn’t have a centralized controlling system and only exists in the virtual world. This simple definition raises a lot of question, which is why the rest of the book will clarify all the basic queries you might have about cryptocurrencies, and then, we’ll talk about how cryptocurrencies work.

    We will also talk about some other important concepts related to cryptocurrencies – concepts like the Blockchain, smart contracts and decentralized applications. We will also take a look at all the uses of cryptocurrencies and how you can buy things using cryptocurrencies. More importantly, we will also look at how cryptocurrencies can be used to make money.

    To help you understand cryptocurrencies better, we’re going to look at how Bitcoin, the first and the most famous cryptocurrency, functions as an example. A major part of this book is focused on getting you familiar with Bitcoin since it’s the cryptocurrency that everybody has heard of. This doesn’t mean that other cryptocurrencies don’t exist or are not important – in the last section of the book, we will talk about other different cryptocurrencies and what benefits they can give you over other cryptocurrencies about investing, trading, etc.

    The world of cryptocurrency is constantly changing and adapting. This book is the ultimate guide to help bring you into the world of cryptocurrency and into the future.



    Blockchain: The Complete And Comprehensive Guide To Understanding Blockchain Technologies (Blockchain Books, Blockchain Technology Explained, Blockchain Programming, Blockchain Programming)

    by Adrian McNulty

    Here Is The Complete, Updated and Comprehensive Guide To Understanding Blockchain Technologies For Beginners!

    The blockchain is probably best known as the technology that cryptocurrencies (such as Bitcoin) are based on. But in fact a blockchain can serve a far greater variety of purposes. A blockchain is, broadly speaking, a decentralized, permanent ledger of data or assets. The blockchain traces the transfer or exchange of those assets, and by extension, it traces the transactions between its users.

    Blockchains can be used to perform all the same transactions that any other system would allow, but the blockchain has the added benefit of being faster, more reliable, more open, more secure, and less costly to administer than typical options. Individuals would once have to manage records of their transactions and interactions manually, and build up their own network of trust.

    For example, your bank may keep all of your debit transactions on file, but may only provide the last few months or years of transactions through their web interface, meaning you either have to continuously download your transaction record, save all of your bank statements, or visit the bank to get a detailed record. But in a blockchain, all of these records would always be visible to you immediately, reliably, and securely.

    Furthermore, certain users would need to have certain privileges and permissions to oversee and approve the transactions before the transactions were completed. But in the blockchain, all of this authorization and trust is done in the ledger. In other words, in a blockchain, the data is doing the work of the people.

     

    Here’s what you’ll find inside the book:

    • What Is the Blockchain
    • History of the Blockchain
    • Reasons to Use a Blockchain
    • The Blockchain in Detail
    • Potential Applications
    • Blockchain Projects
    • Blockchain Security
    • Future of the Blockchain
    • Blockchain Platforms

It’s built on the the real-life examples and successes of top performers across sectors, a field guide for how CEO’s and HR leaders can improve their bottom line while improving their employees’ own bottom line and health.



    Divorce, Drinking and Dating: The no-fail process to find out who you really are, find your own freedom, and have a few laughs along the way

    by Danielle Prahl

    For the woman inside of you who longs for freedom

    You know those perfect people who always have their shit together? Yeah. That’s not me. Hell, I married a con man who had lied to me for seven years, and I didn’t even know it until he landed himself in prison. True story.

    In fact, all of this is true: my ultra-luxury life with a man who was lying to me, waking up homeless and without a cent in the bank, falling into a habit of drinking, and dating ridiculous men. But, the good news is that I eventually discovered my own power and took control of my life.

    I can’t promise that after reading this you will know everything and be on your way to miraculous riches and the best relationships or whatever. I can promise, though, that this book is brutally honest. Through a path of self-discovery, I took an experience that could have devastated me and used it to launch myself into a life I couldn’t even have dreamed of. I want to share that with you so you can find the courage to create a better life for yourself (you know, the kind you really wantâ?¦.).

    You can truly be, do and have anything in this world. You are not a mistake. I hope that my suffering, my crazy and wild stories, my heartbreak, and my victory will leave you with some wisdom that you can use for yourself to find your own freedom.



    Human Resources – The Inconsiderate Truth: A Satirical Look into the World of HR

    by Stephen Campbell

    Depending on who you ask, the term “Human Resources” can muster a volatile range of responses – from words like “empathize, nurture and counsel,” to “apathetic, antagonize and alienate.” Often times, all these can be used to describe the same HR professional.

    Why is this the case? Are all HR professionals just that temperamental? Why yes, many are indeed. But wouldn’t you be too if you had to constantly walk the extremely fine line between employee advocate and corporate cheerleader – all the while having responsibility to organize the company picnic and confront the employee observed masturbating at work?

    As an HR professional, your work is never doneâ?¦right. Over the course of your career, you will regularly encounter adversaries challenging nearly every decision you make. At the same time, your company’s senior leadership will set unobtainable performance objectives for HR that will lead you to question your career choice on a daily basis. Oh yesâ?¦one more thing – you as HR will feel the wrath for any perceived problem within your organization related to the workforce. From low employee engagement scores to high turnover rates, you will undoubtedly bear much of the blame.

    With a Master’s of Human Resources and Industrial Relations (MHRIR) degree and eighteen years of multi-faceted HR experience, author Stephen Michael Campbell originally set out to once-and-for-all resolve the enduring disconnect between the often misguided perception of HR and the true, innate value of this disparaged field.

    Unfortunately – despite numerous attempts – he reluctantly reached the conclusion that this feat was perhaps impossible for any one person to achieve. Instead, Stephen chose to share a number of his real life experiences through the guise of an imaginary company, Enditall Medical Supplies, Inc., as well as offer up the fictitious professional society – HRPES – to assist those HR folks still in the trenches (believing that their life’s chosen work actually makes a positive impact for the employees they support).

    While Stephen’s satirical journey into the world of HR will no doubt lead to sporadic laughs, a few tears and a newfound appreciation for the miracle of life, his literary work will most ironically only strengthen the opinion that HR is nothing more than a necessary evil in today’s business landscape.

    Please join Stephen in delving into the realm of HR from an insider’s perspective…

    Recent reviews of “Human Resources: The Inconsiderate Truth” include:

    Critics and cynics alike have widely proclaimed “Human Resources: The Inconsiderate Truth” to be a real game changer. Heralded as a “must read” for HR people and non-HR folks alike, this is one book you simply cannot afford to overlook. Buy yourself a copy today and discover what it truly means to be happy. Want to be someone’s hero? Buy a second copy for a friend and you will both have a better life for it.

    – The Author

    As an HR executive with a Fortune 500 company, my job can be extremely stressful at times. I purchased “Human Resources: The Inconsiderate Truth” with the belief that through gaining a deeper insight into my profession, my life at work would become a little easier – perhaps just a bit more bearable.

    I was wrong.

    – Ann Nonimus

    With my hectic work schedule and busy social life, reading just isn’t always a priority for me. If I were ever to pick up a book though, “Human Resources: The Inconsiderate Truth” may very well be that one.

    – Reed N. Little

    A colleague of mine recommended I read “Human Resources: The Inconsiderate Truth” to gain a better perspective into what the HR professionals go through at our company. I can now say that I actually feel sorry for what I’ve put these folks through over the years. I’m kidding – I still don’t care for HR people and now I find myself even disliking my colleague for wasting my time with this nonsense.

    The Salesmanâ??s Guide to Dating: A Sales Book About Making Connections… With an Unexpected Twist!

    by David Masover

    Why is sales so hard? It’s just talking to people, so what’s the big deal?

    For most people, sales and dating are both hard – and for the same basic reason.

    Talking to someone when we are hoping for a specific outcome is much more than “just talking”. Our desire for a specific outcome makes a huge difference in how we think about it, feel about it, and perform during the communication.

    So what can we do to be more effective when we want to have a conversation that leads to a certain outcome?

    There is no trick, but there is a winning methodology
    There are no guarantees or sure-fire tricks to ensure that any specific conversation will end the way you want it to, but if you want to improve your chances that over the course of many conversations you will increase your odds of getting the results you want – then having a system helps – a lot.

    But what does dating have to do with sales?
    Sales and dating are both about making connections and building on them. There are – of course – many differences, but also some similarities that can be learned from – in both directions.

    Blending together ideas about dating in the context of selling, and selling in the context of dating, The Salesman’s Guide to Dating is a short, fun blend of these two connection-building activities.

    In other words, this little book will show you how to start your connection-making and connection-building efforts the right way, and to follow that right way through to the end – whatever your desired end result might be.

    What exactly will I learn from the book?

    • How to find the best places to look for the right potential connections
    • How to reach out to those connections in a way that starts you out on the “right foot”
    • How to make sure early on that both of you feel that it’s worth the time to get to know each other
    • How to learn what the other person is looking for, and to establish yourself as the person to get that from
    • How to make suggestions for moving forward together that are more likely to succeed
    • How to respond to questions, concerns and other forms of reluctance
    • How to set up success – however you define it – by following the right path to get there from the start

    By the end of the book, you will see how – in certain ways – sales and dating have a lot in common. More importantly, you will be able to see a path to success in both sales and dating that is clear, holistic, and actionable.

    Find what you are looking for
    Whether you are looking for love or looking to make quota – by the time you are done with the book, you will know what you need to do to reach the results you are after, and the steps you need to take to get there.

    About the author:
    David Masover was not a natural born salesperson. In fact, he completely bombed in his first two sales jobs. But sales was the first job that Masover failed at, and he was unwilling to let selling beat him, so he did what the son of a scientist should do. He studied and he experimented.

    Over the course of a few years and a few jobs, Masover created systems and tested ways of executing and organizing his sales work. His results began to improve, and while sales is never easy, using his methodology, selling became systematic. Over time, Masover began managing, training, consulting, blogging and writing based on these tried and true organic methods. The result is a proven sales methodology designed to empower anyone with the will to invest the effort to succeed in sales.

    Masover is an Amazon Kindle best selling author of books on sales and sales management and is a co-founder of Branders.com, the world’s largest online seller of promotional products, Masover is currently engaged in private sales coaching, consulting, blogging, speaking and writing.

    The Way of Effortless Leadership: Ancient Secrets on Cultivating a Culture of Trust, Engagment and Flow

    by K.G. Johnston

    This book takes you on one man’s journey to follow a dream, and the unexpected and paradoxical lessons he gleaned about leadership along the way.

    Are you a leader who feels that lately, something just isn’t right?

    • -Are your people distrustful and disengaged?
    • -Does much of what you implement fail because of lack of employee buy-in?
    • -Do you resort to using your position to force employee adoption of change?”
    • -Do you and or your people lack energy, self-expression and vibrant health?
    • -Has leading lost its fun?
    • -Do ideas and information fail to flow up to you?
    • -Are there a lot of internal politics and lack of collaboration?
    • -Are people not performing up to their potential?
    • -Do you sleep poorly at night? Is stress having repercussions on your health?
    • -Do you hear yourself uttering “it’s not personal, it’s just business” (but not buying into it) to justify your actions?

    So, “What’s in it for me?” (and your people) you ask.

    • -A simple, relaxed and effortless way to achieve results
    • -Greater trust and harmony
    • -More efficiency
    • -Greater effectiveness
    • -Better communication
    • -Improved engagement
    • -Greater productivity
    • -More creativity and innovation
    • -Better acceptance and resilience to change
    • -Less stress
    • -Peace of mind
    • -More self-awareness
    • -Positive energy and good vibes
    • -More enjoyment at work

    WHAT is going on?!

    • -Employee engagement has remained flat despite billions spent.
    • -Up to 80 plus percent of change initiatives fail.
    • -Many of our products and services damage our environment.
    • -Productivity gains are hard to achieve.
    • -Mental disability claims are skyrocketing.

    Are people lazy, crazy, or incompetent? Orâ?¦ is something larger happening?

    K.G. draws from his training in human resources and his time as a consultant and coach in the people-side of change. He noticed that the rush of business DOING was not synonymous with effectiveness, and many leaders unconsciously cultivated an unhealthy culture of distrust and disengagement. Exceptional leaders focused on how they were BEING with their people. He realized that leaders define what we see as possible, and that for meaningful change to occur, we must help those in charge transform.

    K.G. suggests that conventional business wisdom is NOT wise because it is based on a faulty paradigm. He looks to science, ancient wisdom and the natural world for answers.

    This simple three-part transformational ecosystem “model” shows the leader (within all of us) how to do important internal work to cultivate their own energy, character and vision and then how to energize their culture and empower their people. His work is informed by his practical knowledge of eastern philosophy gained through teaching tai chi chuan and practicing yoga.
