From Bitcoin to Eth to Alts, and then back
I’ve been increasingly asked by friends how to “get into crypto”. I recommend reading deeply to understand the features of and problems with Bitcoin and Ethereum. Without that understanding those, it’s easy to be misled.
Figuring out Bitcoin:
1. Breakdown of the Bitcoin Paper. https://crypto.preethikasireddy.com/tag/bitcoin/
2. Peter Thiel’s 2022 talk at Bitcoin Miami.
3. Vitalik Buterin on Bitcoin Maximalism. https://vitalik.ca/general/2022/04/01/maximalist.html
Figuring out Ethereum and Decentralisation:
1. Balaji on Tim Feriss. Long podcast.
2. NFTs (contrarian viewpoint). Moxie. https://moxie.org/2022/01/07/web3-first-impressions.html
3. Learning by doing on DeFi – I have a short mini-course on my crypto website: https://pinotio.com/defi-mini-course-part-1-wallet-setup-for-defi/
