Digital Currency Reading List

Inspired by Chris Dixon’s “Crypto Token Roundup” & Dan Romero’s “Digital Currency Reading List”.

I am often asked for recommendations on how to learn more about the Cryptocurrency space. As a result, I have curated a list aggregating some of the best content out there in order to make it easier for others to digest.

Feel free to use this list as a roadmap to better understand the larger trends in the space and the nuances of this emerging technology.

The following resources are categorized and ordered within each subcategory by the level of complexity. I particularly recommend the infamous 2014 NYTimes post by Marc Andreessen on “Why Bitcoin Matters”, the post by Union Square Ventures on “Fat Protocols” & the Hashpower podcast.

If you enjoy these resources and would like to keep up to date with future content feel free to follow me on Twitter @ndebontin.

For a more exhaustive list a16z has one of the best aggregations of resources available.
