I know bitcoin feels overwhelming...

About Geoff Blake

Hey, I'm Geoff!

I totally remember being right where you are. On the one hand, all this bitcoin and cryptocurrency stuff is crazy-fascinating and totally interesting...but on the other hand, it can feel confusing, overwhelming, and way too technical.

It doesn't take too long to hit information overload, does it?

That's why I've put together Understanding Bitcoin for you — this book takes a clear, simple approach to all this stuff. I'm passionate about teaching and helping folks make big distinctions and breakthroughs. And I love helping people get started on their own bitcoin and cryptocurrency journey...

...so let's get started on yours!

"Satoshi started a fire in cyberspace. While the fearful run from it and fools dance around it, the faithful feed the flame, and dream of a world bathed in the warm glow of cyberlight."

Michael Saylor (CEO, MicroStrategy)

There’s a new Promised Land, and people are migrating across at unbelievable speed. It’s the discovery of America all over again. And it sounds hyperbolic, but it’s not.

What's Unique About Understanding Bitcoin?

Understanding Bitcoin: Navigating The Divide To History’s Next Great Era

Practically all books about bitcoin and cryptocurrencies are technical and difficult to follow.

And while the technology behind bitcoin can be complex, the whole thing ca actually be fairly straightforward.

So here's what we'll do...

In Understanding Bitcoin we'll take a non-technical and straightforward approach to getting our heads around bitcoin, blockchain, and much more.

In the first part, you and I will gather up some important puzzle pieces that we'll need to get a clear picture of what bitcoin is and what it means.

With this groundwork laid, we can next move into bitcoin itself — what it is and how it works. So here, we’ll get hands-on so you can see exactly how you can get started with bitcoin for yourself.

Finally, we'll take a look at where all of this is headed. Specifically, we look at the ramifications of bitcoin and blockchain technology to try to get a sense of what things might look like in the coming years.

I hope that sounds like a plan!

"Geoff’s expert teaching has guided me through the journey of learning web design. I started out as a complete beginner, but with Geoff’s excellent training, I graduated at the top of my 3-year college program in just 2 years, which I could not have done otherwise (in fact, his training was to a much higher standard than my school’s). Now after learning so much with Geoff, I’ve gained a full time job as a web designer. Geoff helped get me that break, which I’m sure without his help simply wouldn’t have happened."


"Finally, training that delivers! I have taken courses from numerous vendors, but absolutely none of them begin to compare with this course. I’ve taken a ton of courses from Lynda.com and frankly came away with more theory than practical application. But not with this course, you will get your hands dirty with code, you will be challenged to think through issues on your own but in the end you will have taken a giant step forward in learning to build a WordPress theme from scratch! Geoff is an outstanding instructor, I think I laughed almost as much as I learned. If you’re serious about improving your skills with WordPress then sign up for this course, lock yourself in your office and get to work. I promise it will be worth it! By the way I’ve been so impressed with Geoff as an instructor that this is the third course I’ve taken from him and will soon be starting on my fourth!"


"I like the easy going, friendly style of these courses. Keeps my attention and I can listen to your voice for hours without drifting! I tried a couple of Lynda courses previously, but found I lost interest quickly. Much better courses on Ten Ton Online!"


"I love Geoff’s training courses. It’s like he’s sitting right beside me, taking me through everything step-by-step!"


"I can’t tell you how many times I sat there and said “Oh, that’s how you do that!” throughout this course. Most importantly, Geoff explains the “why” along with the “how,” so I didn’t feel like I was left in the dark. I highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to get the most out of Photoshop with web design. The word “helpful” doesn’t even begin to describe Geoff!"


"From the web layout’s header, down to the footer, Geoff literally walks us through each section of the design, including graphics, code and so much more. Plus, after learning all his helpful Photoshop hints, tips and tricks, all I can say is that I wish I found this course sooner!"


"Champagne videos! After trawling the web looking for many answers, your videos have answered them all and more! Thanks heaps for this knowledge as it’s saved so much time. They’re simply the best tutorials on the matter. Cheers!"


"A big thank you for your amazing, easy to understand videos. I love your easy going style, it makes them so much easier to follow and have a good laugh as well. You have the uncanny knack of getting inside our heads and knowing what we find confusing. Amazing! Many thanks!"


"I seriously feel like how Neo felt when he just learned kung fu going through these videos, it cleared up a lot thank you!"


"Awesome. I LOVE how easy it was to follow you. The way you took time to explain every single action made this a great course. Many thanks!"


"This course was great. Geoff’s concise, easy way of teaching is fantastic. Everything is so easy to understand and makes so much sense. I’ve used other online schools but was totally lost until I found Ten Ton. It is a real pleasure to learn from these videos."


"Man, that was the BEST video course ever! Thanks Geoff, that makes so much sense to me, and is easy to follow!"


"AAAAAhahaha, what great work! I really enjoy the enthusiasm and clarity in your delivery! I've been freelance web designing for a few years and it's sites like yours that really helped me to evolve into a better designer. Now I can build e-commerce sites for clients too! Many thanks for your hard work and I wish you the best in the future!"


"I must say, your courses have been a life saver! I wasn't new to building websites but I was new to WordPress. Your courses have open new avenues for me. There are still a few things that I want to know more about and I see that you offer those courses too. So, I'll be back to purchase another course, for sure!"


"Just when I thought that this was going to be a tough subject to learn, Geoff totally flipped the switch on me. He made this SO easy. It was like he literally took me by the hand and told me exactly what I had to do, and exactly HOW to do it! Plus, he made the whole process fun and easy. I also couldn’t believe that he packed so much information in one little place! And I think the best thing about this, was that I could always stop the video, go back if I needed to fully understand something, and continue on at my own pace. Thanks Geoff. I’ll definitely be back for more!"
