What is bitcoin and the blockchain?steemCreated with Sketch.

in bitcoin •  last year

 As bitcoin, ethereum and other cryptocurrencies have become more popular, we’ve gotten more and more requests from people seeking suggestions for how to learn about the technology. 

  In pulling together this list of starter articles, blog posts, books and courses, we’ve found that most people are initially willing to invest about 30–45 minutes to learn about cryptocurrencies. That can then ignite enough curiosity to invest another 2–3 hours — and then they’re off to the races. 

 Feel free to share this list with others. Over the last year, members of the Digital Currency Initiative have sent it to several hundred people — from finance ministers to longtime developers interested in the cryptocurrency space and, as a result, have seen them change their policy position or even change jobs. 

  This list of articles is by no means exhaustive; it’s a living document. Feel free to suggest your favorite ethereum, smart contracts, regulatory and DAO explainer articles (bforde@mit.edu) or create your own list and share it with the community! 

 Overviews (30–45 mins)

 Applications (60–90 mins)

 Technical Overviews (2–4 hours)

 Books (1–2 days each)

 Bitcoin Course & Textbook (4–5 weeks)

    Thank you for reading. Cheers and peace :)
