Asides making searches on Google and other search engines to ascertain what the blockchain and cryptocurrency industry entails, you can also rely on books that have been written by professionals in the field. While there are several out there, we have resorted to only 3 that are tailored to both niches.
The terms blockchain and cryptocurrency may be used interchangeably, but the former is the technology behind these virtual assets. These terms may sound complex, but the likes of Andreas M. Antonopoulos, Melanie Swan, Chris Burniske, and Jack Tatar have taken time to break each element down.
So, are you in need of a great read for the next 30 days? Try one of these!
Andreas M. Antonopoulos: The Internet of Money
Andreas M. Antonopolous, a 47-year old Greek-British cryptocurrency advocate and information-security expert has a lot to say in his book, The Internet of Money. Here, he talks about Bitcoin and how the virtual asset is transforming the world of finance. The writer also points out that Bitcoin has the potential of becoming more than the term ‘digital currency.’ You can purchase this book from Goodreads or Amazon.
Melanie Swan: Blueprint for a New Economy
Melanie Swan is a technology theorist in the Philosophy department at Purdue University. Her book, Blueprint for a New Economy looks at the features, concept, and functionality of Bitcoin as well as that of the blockchain. While Swan believes in the potentials of Bitcoin, she is of the opinion that blockchain may have more significance.
According to Swan, blockchain could bring about an innovation comparable to that of the internet. The book also covers areas such as creating a decentralized digital repository to verify identity, and using the blockchain for automated tracking of all digital endeavors. You can find a copy of this book on Goodreads and Amazon.
Chris Burniske, and Jack Tatar: Cryptoassets: The Innovative Investor’s Guide to Bitcoin and Beyond
The title of the book, Cryptoassets: The Innovative Investor’s Guide to Bitcoin and Beyond authored by Chris Burniske, and Jack Tatar goes a long way to explain what it entails. The book has been divided into the sections why, what, and how thereby simplifying the process of educating newbies about the industry.
A point worthy to note is that it addresses the fear and greed in the market. If these are better managed and feelings are put in check, one can use the emotional instability of other traders to their advantage. A copy of this book can also be purchased from Amazon and Goodreads.
Asides from reading these books, one can also master the act of trading and learn about the community by joining cryptocurrency subreddits, joining the trading view platform, and also following professional traders on Twitter.
