Have you finished reading all my previous articles and find yourself with an insatiable desire for more crypto currency knowledge?
Then you’ve come to the right place, this post is dedicated to my favourite books on the subject. You’ll find no money-grabbing referral links here, just great content from some of my favourite authors in the space to continue your education.
The Story Book
Digital Gold Nathaniel Popper
Now a few years old, but a fantastic tale of the early history of Bitcoin. Digital Gold is written by Nathaniel Popper, a New York Times reporter. The book is full of intrigue and excellently conveys the early excitement and mystery of the birth of Bitcoin.
The Masters Reference
Mastering Bitcoin Andreas Antonopoulos
Andreas has established himself as Bitcoin’s number one educator. He has produced hours upon hours of fantastic content and is the author of several books on Bitcoin, both of which make my list. Mastering Bitcoin is a mix of an introduction and a technical reference. The book does a brilliant job of explaining both the key concepts of bitcoin along with an introduction into the programming you can use to get the most out of it. If you are technically minded, this is the book for you.
The Philosophisers Book
The Internet of Money Andreas Antonopoulos
If Andreas’s first book could be considered to be for the technically minded, then the Internet of Money is a fantastic guide for the layman. Taking the form of a series of transcripts of talks that Andreas has given over the years, the books lays out the historical and philosophical context behind Bitcoin. Ultimately, this is not “the what” of Bitcoin but “the why”.
The Investors Guide
Cryptoassets Chris Burniske & Jack Tatar
The books above focus on the history, mechanics and reason for Bitcoin & crypto currency. Crypto assets is a fantastic introduction into the world of crypto investment. It’s easy to follow, but a gripping read that has timeless information that will leave you unable to put it down. The book covers the history of bitcoin, taxonomy of the cryptoassets and introduces some of the most popular assets that you’ll want to understand more about. Finally the book gives you grounded investment and risk management strategies that you can use to limit your exposure.
I’ll be updating this reading list over time as I discover more books in the space that I consider worthy of your attention. If you’ve read any of these or have any other recommendations for me and your fellow readers, I’d love to hear from you in the comments.
Until next time my friends…
