    Our lives are becoming more and more digital everyday. This is true for money as much as anything else. 
    In 2017, cryptocurrencies have moved from something a small-dedicated group of people paid attention to into a much larger public view. As with any new society changing technological advance there are investment opportunities that can and will make a fortune. There are also even more ways to lose any money invested just as in “.com” boom of the late 1990s. 
    Ben Bernanke, Chairman of the Federal Reserve said “[Virtual Currencies] may hold long-term promise, particularly if the innovations promote a faster, more secure and more efficient payment system.” While Warren Buffett, CEO, Berkshire Hathaway said “Stay away from it. It’s a mirage, basically.” Whose right? Actually, both. 
    There will be dominant winners like Amazon, Facebook and Google in the internet space in the cryptocurrency market. There will also be many more eToys, Pets.com and webVan’s – companies that raised hundreds of millions of dollars during the late 1990s and went bust within a few years. 
    This book provides a broad view of the cryptocurrency market that includes Bitcoin and goes far beyond it. What most people don’t realize is there are three sectors in the cryptocurrency market today.  The three sectors are 1) cryptocurrency as currency; 2) platforms that enable software developers to build app like functionality in purpose built cryptocurrencies; 3) purpose built cryptocurrencies meant to better address the needs of business or consumer use cases better then traditional currencies do today. 
    This book provides the history, vocabulary, and essential information you need to understand the 30+ leading cryptocurrencies today. In addition, the investment strategies that the smartest investors in the world use are described and how they can be applied to the cryptocurrency market today. 
    In other words, massive opportunities and massive risks exist in investing in cryptocurrencies. Read and tread carefully. Ensure you and yours invest wisely. Remember the only constant in the world is change.

    The Essential Guide to Saving Money and Living the Frugal Life! 
     
     
     
    Some of the most frequently asked personal finance questions during this difficult economy revolve around "how to budget", "how to make a budget" and "how to live on a tight budget". Budgeting your money successfully is crucial to flourishing in any type of economy, much less a tough one. There is a common misconception that good budgeting depends upon fancy forms, financial expertise, software programs and solely on one's income. All of these false notions completely circumvent the only true goal of any personal budget: Getting the most value for each of your hard-earned dollars.  
     
    Those misguided beliefs above are the key reasons why many people are much worse off than they should be, regardless of income levels or familiarity with financial software. There are many people who are much "better off" with a lower income and a simple budget form than those with great salaries and top-notch computer programs. These successful folks are the ones who have learned the secret

    An immediate bestseller in 1859, Self-help propelled its author to fame and rapidly became one of Victorian Britain’s most important statements on the allied virtues of hard work, thrift and perseverance. Smiles’ most celebrated book sold 20,000 copies in its first year, became known as the ‘bible of mid-Victorian liberalism’ and is the prototype of today’s motivational and self-help blockbusters. Steve Shipside’s brilliant interpretation of Smiles’ Self-help enables twenty-first century readers to put into practice the insights of one of the world’s most famous self-improvement books. Discover:
    • Why being true to yourself will help you avoid debt;
    • That learning to sod the Joneses is the key to happiness;
    • How to get back on the horse and learn from failure;
    • Why every moment counts when it comes to self-improvement;
    • That learning to visualise victory can help you achieve your goals.
    This interpretation of Samuel Smiles’s Self-help is not a substitute for the original. Its purpose is simply to illustrate the timeless nature of Smiles’s insights by bringing them to life in a contemporary context. Samuel Smiles’ Self-help is an enlightening, entertaining accompaniment to one of the most famous and inspiring books ever written.
