Ben Perrin's BTC Sessions YouTube channel is one of the best resources, particularly for beginners and those that are not rooted in technology or App Dev as a career.

Why are you even here? Do you think you're performing some kind of public service? This is a help thread for new users and you're being childish.

Space Monkey is just an alt account for LiteCoinGuy who was a former member of this forum until he abused his account in a malicious way to try destroy other accounts. The LiteCoinGuy account was banned but now he is back under this fake account Space Monkey. As you can see from his reputation, he is well into the negative digits.

I like the concept of Cloud Mining. But how will this service evolve and be sustainable? Also, is it true that when someone signs up to Cloud Mining using this link https://pool.bitcoin.com/index.html?code=rYKTBn they would earn 2% free pre-order lifetime hashrate? Interested to see this happening...

I am quite into the bitcoin stuff but it is still confusing to me. I glanced through a book called mastering bitcoin but then I realized personal experiences make more sense to pay attention before jumping into the bitcoin market. Any recommendation for a newbie? :)

Thank you plenty for such links. I believe this always benefits newbies, as finding things randomly makes it a lot tougher part. But, if we could get proper guide then it is great. Most people have the mindset that we should not pay for learning, which is pretty incorrect.

I believe learning is kind of investment that gives you BIGGEST ROI, as it stays with you for your whole LIFE! Although, I know very few could afford this but if you can then try this TOP RATED ICO Consultant.

I have long been interested in crypto-currencies. It all seems very perspicative to me, especially from cryptography. But to the planting, I do not have enough money to invest (I'm a student). But I was prompted by one system, they say it is very relevant for people like me. Who can say anything about it? https://track.advendor.net/click?pid=89 ... sub1=forum
