Details: Product Description The kids in Bitville realize they need a tool to help them trade with each other. As they explore using different types of money, a strange boy moves to town and suggests a new idea... Bitcoin Money is a story for all ages which helps answer the question “Why Bitcoin?”  Review “Bitcoin Money directly answers the #1 question children and adults have about Bitcoin: “Why should I care?” With beautiful illustrations and engaging plot twists, we learn timeless economic lessons.” Pierre Rochard Founder, Lightning Power Users “The author manages to explain complex topics such as money and Bitcoin in a way that any child can understand. I can’t wait to read this to my niece!” Michael Goldstein President, Satoshi Nakamoto Institute “This book is a crash course on the economics and ethics of Bitcoin and why it is important, conveyed intuitively with easy examples of children playing and exchanging. You really hit it home! “ Max Hillebrand Host, World Crypto Network “I learned more from reading this book in one sitting than from you trying to explain Bitcoin to me for two years.” Grandpa From the Author Many have heard of the world's first decentralized digital currency, Bitcoin, but few understand how it works and why it was created.  In this short story we explore the origins of money, the invention of Bitcoin, and the role it serves as sound, reliable money. I believe that the key value of Bitcoin is its economic role, and so we focus on that aspect, as opposed to a detailed explanation of the technology behind it.  Although it appears as a simple children's story, I hope that this book can serve as an introduction to Bitcoin for people of all ages.
