By now, you have probably heard about Bitcoin or blockchain. At least I hope so!

The media attention these two receive has only increased over the years, and the trend shows no sign of stopping. Thus, the chances are that an article or video about them has found its way to your screen by now. But how much do you actually know about Bitcoin or blockchain?

The aforementioned articles or videos, useful though they may be, do tend to be a little too much to take in for someone not in the loop about Bitcoin or blockchain technology. To be sure, one may learn a thing or two, but, nine times out of ten, an uninitiated individual will not really benefit from them.

This leaves those wishing to learn about Bitcoin or blockchain in a bit of a spot since the information they need can be difficult to glean from all the various sources and navigating through the complicated jargon that goes on unexplained. What, for example, do abbreviations like ICO and DAO stand for? This happens because content creators sometimes assume that the audience is already familiar with the terminology at hand.

So where should a Bitcoin and blockchain novice go to start building a foundation of basic knowledge about these key technologies? This infographic by Bitcoinfy attempts to do just that.

If you’re still worried about how hard it will be for you to understand all of this, have no fear. The way this Bitcoin and blockchain guide is designed makes it easy to absorb all the important facts quickly. So give this infographic a good look. It has everything you need, whether you simply want to be lightly informed about this topic, or you wish to take first steps on the path to Bitcoin and blockchain expertise.
