Get started with Bitcoin

30


30 per hour - Virtual OK

Bitcoin's been making the news a bit recently, as a fast-rising cryptocurrency; have you heard about it (or others, like Litecoin, Dogecoin, Ethereum, or others) and wondering how to start getting invested or not quite able to wrap your head around it? Let me help!

I'll assess your desires for getting into Bitcoin (Dabbling? Long-term investing? Merchant or international transfer services?), and help you take your first steps, which could include:

- 30 minute tutorial on as much of the technical details of Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dogecoin, Ethereum, or blockchain technology you want to know.
- Sign up for a wallet account and acquire some digital currency
- Sign up for an exchange service and get familiar with market trading of digital currencies
- Wire up your online site to accept Bitcoin payments (through BitPay or Coinbase)

Training & Qualifications


I have been working with Bitcoin since 2012, both as a user of the currency, as well as a developer working on the core Bitcoin wallet software code, altcoins, porting Bitcoin to Javascript (NodeJS), as well as developing Ethereum contracts and applications.

Trading Preference: I prefer exchanging services

He was VERY informative and very easy to talk to. Bitcoin is now clearer to me than ever before (Ethereum, too - this guy covers a lot of bases). He... gave me a general understanding of cryptocurrency, what it means, and what it can do - a perfect place to begin studying or working with Bitcoin.show more
