Many people have heard about Bitcoin, but very few of them actually understand what it is and how it works. It’s no wonder, since the term is very commonly used online and in conversations related to technology and business. Author Peter H. Le has decided to offer readers who want to learn more about Bitcoin all the information they need to, not only understand it, but also use it in the near future. “Bitcoin in English: Understanding WHAT It Is” is a short and concise guide that aims to give a simple definition of Bitcoin and explain in layman’s terms what its purpose is, why it was invented, and how it will change the world as we know it, much like the Interned did a long time ago.

Peter H. Le starts his book with a short Introduction. Here, he explains why there are so many confusions around Bitcoin: the industry in which it is currently used is quite recent, and it is still growing and expanding. This guide offers readers a very simple method by which they can understand the nature of Bitcoin without getting into complicated notions. The philosophy the author uses is this: all things and experiences are just energy, and nothing more.

In Peter H. Le’s words, “Bitcoin is just 21st century money.” Like any other currency, Bitcoin is only a reflection of the basic human behavior to ascribe value to things, both tangible and intangible. This means that in the future we will eventually start using this digital currency. Why is it crucial to understand it now? Because, at some point, Bitcoin will mean a lot to the world of business.

“Bitcoin in English: Understanding WHAT It Is” is a well-researched guide written by someone who works in the field of business and understands it perfectly. Peter H. Le has earned multiple business degrees in Marketing, Finance, and Management Information Systems, and his goal is to help his clients develop solutions to meet the challenges posed by emerging technologies. Bitcoin is the currency of the modern world, a world to which we need to learn how to adapt if we want to thrive. This amazing guide can be the first step in that direction. ( )
