A Beginner’s guide to Bitcoin by Matthew R. Kratter

With a lot of new investors flooding the market, it is always nice to build a solid foundation. This relatively new book (2021), written by Matthew R. Kratter, is to the point and no-nonsense. Writing an extremely technical topic, in such a digestible way, is an achievement upon itself. Recommended for every beginner!

Digital Gold: Bitcoin and the Inside Story of the Misfits and Millionaires Trying to Reinvent Money by Nathaniel Popper

New York Times technology and business reporter Nathaniel Popper, dives deeper into the true Bitcoin ideology instead of just focusing on the technical aspect.

The Truth Machine – The Blockchain and the future of everything by Michael J. Casey

Blockchain will change the future like the internet did before it. You must have heard this phrase a thousand times by now. But what implications and potential use-cases will the blockchain truly have? This book, written by Michael J. Casey, demystifies the blockchain and explains how it can change economics, logistics and the world as we know it. It dives deeper into the trust that we put into certain institutions and the potential dangers that wait below the surface.

The Book of Satoshi by Phil Champagne

Who is Satoshi? That is the million euro crypto question. Will we ever get an answer? Probably not. But for those who seek any kind of closure can read Phil Champagne’s The book of Satoshi, where Phil investigates Satoshi’s email correspondence, the white paper that he wrote and all clues that might point to Satoshi’s real identity. An interesting book that paints a clear picture of a very vague person and a must read for every crypto fanatic out there. Satoshi’s vision laid the ground work for everything that we love about crypto and this book expends upon that.

The Price of Tomorrow – Why deflation is the key to an Abundant Future by Jeff Booth

Jeff Booth paints a daunting picture where he explains how our current economical situation is bound to fail. Jeff states that our current economic systems has been built upon the pre-technology era. An era where labor and capital were inextricably linked, an era that counted on growth and inflation, an era where we made money from inefficiency. Those times are long gone, but still we build upon this system, pretending that it isn’t outdated. His proposal? An entire overhaul of our entire economic system, focusing on technological advancements like Bitcoin and blockchain. The book handles a lot of topics and might seem too extensive for certain people. A must read for people that are critical regarding our current economic system.

An Altcoin Trader’s Handbook by Nik Patel

Alright, we noticed that a lot of the books that we recommend are Bitcoin and blockchain related. That is, of course, pretty logical due to 90% of the media attention going out to Bitcoin. But for those who want to learn more about altcoins, we truly recommend the book An Altcoin Trader’s Handbook written by Nik Patel. Nik collects five years of anecdotes, strategies and insights into one interesting book. The reader will follow a three-stage process of research, accumulation and distribution. The end result? A firm grasp on the altcoin crypto scene which might come in handy in the current season.
