There are loads of books out there about Bitcoin, BTC cryptocurrency, and blockchain, but which should you choose this Christmas? Maybe you’re looking for a gift, or perhaps want to use some of your holiday time to read one yourself.
Well, let us give you a helping hand. Hard Fork has picked out some options for a variety of experience — and reading — levels. Take a look!
For the baby in your life
No one is too old, and for that matter too young, for Bitcoin. So, what better way of getting your offspring into cryptocurrency than gently nudging them towards it during their formative years! Or maybe you just want to help them with their ABCs with words more interesting than apple, boat, and cat.
If that’s the case then Graeme Moore’s: “B is for Bitcoin” will be right up your street. Moore came up with the idea for the book after realizing that he needed a way to speak to his two-year-old niece about, you guessed it, Bitcoin.
If you or the hodler in your life is looking for a similar excuse, buy them this book and pray for their children.
For the beginner
If you’re looking for a book about Bitcoin or cryptocurrency for someone just getting into the topic, Dominic Frisby’s: “Bitcoin, The Future of Money,” is a great place to start. Frisby was formerly a comedian-cum-financial columnist and has a witty and wry spin which he uses to explain Bitcoin and its history in plain English.
I personally rave about this book a lot because it is such a good page-turner, and it’s unlikely to alienate any of its readers. Numerous sections of this book read more like a political crime thriller than they do a book about an emerging technology. It serves for an entertaining read regardless of experience, but is a great place to start for complete newbies.
For the intermediate
Blockchain Basics by Daniel Drescher is great if you’re…
