I'm interested in Bitcoin. Where can I learn about it?

Sun Oct 23, 2016 10:32 pm

Bitcoin. It's the reason we're all here. Yet most of us don't fully understand how the inner cogs and gears actually work. This is a list of resources to help you understand more.

Where can I learn more about Bitcoin?

Well. That's a great question! There are many different places to fill your brain to it's capacity. I'll split these resources into three groups. Newbie, Regular and Veteran.

Newbie (Focusing more on the "What is...")
- https://bitcoin.org/en/how-it-works (The basic official introduction. A must-read for all you spring-chickens)
- https://wiki.bitcoin.com/w/Introduction (Our awesome host, bitcoin.com's little twist of "orientation day")
- http://www.coindesk.com/information/what-is-bitcoin/ (What better place, but coindesk! They provide news and tutorials aimed at both newbies and the learned alike)
- https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.reddit ... ent=safari

Regular (Focusing more on the "How" aspect. Mostly still plain explanation, however.)
- https://bitcoin.org/en/bitcoin-paper (The whitepaper, written by Satoshi themself, regarding the idea behind Bitcoin and the problems it solves. This guide is in English, Spanish, Italian, Russian and Swedish.)
- https://wiki.bitcoin.com/w/Software (An in-depth explanation of the Bitcoin software and protocol. There are many other topics on the wiki, like BIPs, Mining, Economics and more. This is however the most crucial information needed for a regular Bitcoiner)
- http://www.michaelnielsen.org/ddi/how-t ... lly-works/ (Great explanation on the Bitcoin protocol. A great deal of text however.)
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=382RimzEAyA&t=149s

Veteran (Focusing on "How", mostly discussing code-level topics)
- https://wiki.bitcoin.com/w/Category:Technical (The holy grail of Bitcoin developers. Every command and API call has been well documented)

- I got nuthin'.

If you have any great additions to add, simply post below! I'll add them ASAP.

This post will be followed by my own Bitcoin explanation.
