"The Bitcoin Starter Kit is a complete resource for the theory behind bitcoin and a how to guide for buying it. As my background is in finance, I already understand that theory. As someone who is unfamiliar with how to buy bitcoin at an online exchange, that part was useful to me. The process of being able to transact in bitcoin is more complicated than opening a brokerage account for trading stocks, but this kit makes that process as clear as possible.

One key highlight of this kit that cannot be overlooked is the stress on security and protection of your bitcoin. For anyone who has lost money holding cryptocurrency on an exchange, you can understand the value of this advice. QuadrigaCX went into bankruptcy protection after the CEO died and he took with him all of the key codes to the grave. Type in "cryptocurrency exchange bankruptcy" into a search engine and you will see numerous stories of people getting scammed or performing scams. Everything from incompetence to bad luck to money laundering has tarnished the reputations of these exchanges and caused a lack of trust in them.

As part of the online toolkit, the video made for assisting users in getting their bitcoin into an online wallet obviously uses an example of a specific wallet. While the kit doesn't specifically recommend that one, it was a big help in determining what I should use to help me connect to the world of online bitcoin transacting.

If you want to buy bitcoin, but are too lazy or intimidated to do the research yourself, this kit is a great help. 25% of the kit's cost is given back to you through bitcoin. Avoiding procrastination actually helps quite a bit here. With time, there will be greater access to bitcoin for the masses. But with greater access will come a greater demand. Given that supply of bitcoin is capped at 21 million, increased demand will lead to increased price. If bitcoin rises four times between the time you purchased the kit and when it becomes as easy to buy as stocks, the kit would have paid for itself. If it rises more than that, you profit. Getting in as early as possible is the key here, especially since the price of bitcoin has dropped from $20,000 USD to about $4,000 USD as of the date of this review so you aren't buying at the all time highs."
