Hey folks, an "old lady" here, (old body, young mind, even younger spirit!), who wants to learn more about the bit coin market-but hates just reading through forum posts.  No offense, I have nothing against forums, and belong to several "alternative living" forums;  I just don't like to learn some new subject by picking through relevant posts. (and sifting through the MANY NON-relevant posts!).
Bottom line, I learn better by reading one of those out-dated tomes made from recycled wood pulp.
OK, even an e-book would be fine.  Thanks to my magical iPad, it's not so different from a wood-pulp tome that my old mind can't grasp any knowledge from it!! Wink
Is there any such e-book that I can read to learn about the finer points, (and lesser points), of bitcoin-ology?
If not, can someone kindly point me in the direction of the closest thing to it?
MUCH Thanks!!

PS, OK, so I'm not an 80yr old arthritic old hag...does slightly over "half-century", arthritic, old hippy count?

Peace, Love & Light!

If you don't own the private keys, you don't own the coins.

Hahahah well that's one way to get started!  FYI - most people who are involved in Bitcoin have probably not read that document, but if you really want to understand it at the core, then that's the document to use. The casual user will have no need for it though.

Do you remember back in 1929 when the US stock market was essentially unregulated?  On a certain Tuesday in October?

PLEASE don't invest anything more than 'play money' in bitcoin.

Do you know what it's like to be built this way?
With only the power to push others away?
