Ruben Waterman Getting Started

Exactly one year ago Ruben Waterman signed the deed of incorporation to BITTR B.V. and got started with Bittr. And what a year it was!

Already in 2013, I became interested in bitcoin and after years of following bitcoin from the sidelines, I wanted to turn my hobby into my work in 2018, and so it happened. I would like to thank all our customers for their confidence in Bittr and look forward to Bittr's second birthday with much excitement!

How to invest responsibly in bitcoin?

Ruben Waterman Getting Started

It’s important to understand what bitcoin is, before you invest into it. We would advise you to do your own research and don’t take someone else’s word for it. A good start is the (free) Massive Online Open Course (MOOC) in Digital Currency at the University of Nicosia. This 12-week lasting MOOC deals with various aspects around bitcoin, such as “What is money?”, “What is the history of bitcoin?” and “How does a blockchain work?”. If you have less time available, another way is to do the 10 Day Email Course: Basics of Bitcoin. And once you would like to dig a bit deeper, you will find a ton of aggregated information on the website of Jameson Lopp, especially in the “Getting Started” section.

Quote of the day

Bitcoin will remain, in my opinion, a relentless anomaly that refuses to go away - a black swan that cannot be ignored or extinguished.
