Cryptocurrency & ICO Resources

A 10-part list for participating in the latest tech gold rush

I. Setting the Stage

This stuff is complex, even for a veteran technologist like myself, so the first step anyone interested in crypto or investing needs to do is get up to speed. That means lots and lots of reading. Walking through forums, doing Google searches, reading blog posts, following along on tutorials. Setting up a wallet, investing in some like Bitcoin or Ethereum and seeing how the whole thing feels.

It feels very much like the startup of the AI resurgence at the beginning of 2016, only it’s now a year and a half later and lots more money is being made, pumping even more attention into the sector.

Eventually I’ll write up my own fully-formed thesis on the subject much like I did for self-learning AI that set PROME into motion.

But for now, let’s just learn together, shall we?
