In the whirlwind year of 2022, my partner in crime, Daz, and I embarked on a mission: crafting a comprehensive Bitcoin course for Looking Glass. Little did we know that this endeavour would grow into something much bigger than we ever imagined. When we finally completed the course, we were astounded by the sheer magnitude of the content we had amassed.
It was at that moment when our plans changed—why not transform our creation into a book? And so, for the entire year, fueled by our passion for Bitcoin, we poured our time and energy into these pages. And now, after countless late nights and endless revisions, I'm excited to present to you: "B is for Bitcoin."
