Seeking blockchain technical information

Mon Nov 23, 2015 10:29 pm

Hey all, if you need to educate someone on your team about blockchain technical information, what's the one source or the best source you direct them to?

I've done the standard searches - I prefer to ask you all, experts, rather than spend ten hours vetting ten sources...and potentially still not arriving at the right source.

So, where do you go? All thoughts welcome. Thank you!

I'd go with the book Mastering Bitcoin by Andreas Antonopolous. You can buy this book almost anywhere - or find it for free on github.

This book helped me understand in more detail how everything works from a technical point of view.

Remember that technology is only one part of the equation when it comes to bitcoin. Incentives, economics, game theory, are all extremely important.

Yeah Andreas' book is definitely recommended . You can also look around here for some quick reference technical info: https://bitcoin.org/en/developer-documentation.

Thanks very much all. I'll get reading!

I'm quite familiar with the functionality and economics of bitcoin, but I now have a specific need to understand the blockchain and it's potential application outside of bitcoin (and therefore understanding how it works with bitcoin is essential).

Thanks.

If you have any specific questions, or would like to discuss any of the technical details of the blockchain, you're welcome to contact me. I've got a pretty good grasp on how it all works and am happy to help.
