* Bitcoin books to help you make sound investments
* Read about Bitcoin’s history and where the stock market may soon head

Cryptocurrency. You may have heard the term thrown around recently. That’s because Bitcoin, the world’s most popular digital currency, is seeing record surges in the stock market. In fact, the currency reached an all-time high of $13,000 back in December, making some early investors into instant millionaires. But because cryptocurrency (i.e., a digital currency that has no real intrinsic value) is so new, the market is volatile, and stock prices fluctuate daily.

If you’re curious to know how Bitcoin works, or if you’re looking to “cash in” on the new cryptocurrency trend, here are three books to help you get started.

The how-to guide for readers new to the wide world of cryptocurrency, author Anthony Tu offers up five proven tips to help you navigate these vastly uncharted waters. A simple introduction with tons of great first-hand insight, this book is a great place to help you get started.
