The number one question we receive from people new to blockchain technology is “Where do I start?”.
Blockchain encompasses wide-ranging disciplines including economics, computer science, law, finance, and mathematics. For a technology that has far-reaching implications for our financial systems and other aspects of society, the learning curve is often steep. Even people already working in the industry struggle to keep up with the fast-paced and ever-evolving crypto landscape. With the wealth of resources out there, it can often be overwhelming to figure out where to begin.
People new to the blockchain space usually get overwhelmed with the wealth of information and contrasting narratives that are part of the crypto ecosystem. With this Beginner’s Guide, we aim to help bridge this gap and onboards individuals who are curious about the space but not sure where to get started. This guide is a consolidation of curated beginner-friendly resources that we think will help a beginner dip their feet into the blockchain space,
We hope this guide demystifies the blockchain space and makes it accessible to those who are curious. Please share it with anyone you think will benefit from it. We plan to keep the guide updated and will release newer versions when appropriate. Lastly, we would like to thank all the authors of the resources in this guide.
