Why use Bitcoin? It is digital, practical, cheaper, safer, more secure and global.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 13, 2013
Best-selling authors and bloggers Ponn, JuJu (13), GiGi (12) and JoJo (10) Sabra today announce the “Bitcoin for Kids” Series to motivate moms and kids to use Bitcoin. The digital currency can be sent by anyone of any age, in any amount, to anywhere in the world, anytime of the day or night. Using Bitcoin is as easy as sending an email or SMS/text message. It's an ideal teaching tool for kids.
“We want to help make Bitcoin more mainstream by showing families how easy and fun it is to use,” said Ponn Sabra. The Sabras created the website http://bitkidz.com, the first to teach Kids about Bitcoin. “We created the first Bitcoin-for-kids website, the only Bitcoin forum for kids, and our book series will be used to teach kids in the classroom and online,” said Ponn.
The Introductory book features the first published case study of kids using Bitcoin.
The Bitcoin for Kids book series includes:
Bitcoin for Kids Primer: Kids Making Money Online
Book 1: Putting Money in Kids’ Hands Today For a Better Tomorrow
Book 2: How to Earn, Save, Spend and Share Bitcoin - Easy, Fast and Fun Step-by-Step Tutorials
Book 3: Wise Words from the World’s Best Bitcoiners
The books can be purchased with Bitcoin (or with fiat currency through Amazon). The free Primer can be found at http://bitkidz.com/bitcoinforkids.
In the process of educating kids, they also hope to counter common myths about Bitcoin. “People stay away from Bitcoin because they either believe it’s too volatile, attracts criminals, or, they think Bitcoin is so high-tech that the average person won’t be able to understand it,” said Sabra. “While there’s some truth to those extreme statements, by writing a book series by kids for kids we’re demonstrating that if kids understand Bitcoin, so can others!”

The Bitcoin for Kids series was recently selected as curriculum at The Bitcoin Academy and the Bitcoin Bootcamp after school program. The Sabras conducted months of research and interviewed kids already using Bitcoin. In their research, they found kids who have made significant returns. Each kid they interviewed said Bitcoin has changed their lives.
