What is bitcoin and cryptocurrency?

Below is a few videos that cover some of the basics of “what is bitcoin?”  They cover the basics and give you a good starting point to learn more about bitcoin, blockchain, and cryptocurrencies.

After you’ve watched these, if you want to take some “next steps,” I would encourage you to do the following three things:

  1. Follow podcasters Peter McCormack and Anthony “Pomp” Pompliano.  The guests they talk with help introduce you to the ideas and concepts, and usage of bitcoin and cryptocurrencies
  2. Start reading the Cointelegraph and Coindesk for news and current information on what is happening.
  3. I would encourage you to bookmark the Resources Page, which has links to podcasters, personalities, knowledgeable people and other resources you can educate yourself with at your leisure.


What is Bitcoin?

A few words by Andreas Antonopoulos on “what is bitcoin?” Andreas speaks on a philosophical level (in easy-to-understand terms) that explains bitcoin not only as a “thing” but how it exists as a concept. I’ve found it to be very helpful in understanding why bitcoin (and cryptocurrencies in general) are so paradigm-changing in scope.
