A Concise Path to Understanding Cryptocurrencies
Another book on blockchains? Why?
Understanding blockchains isn’t easy. Or at least wasn’t for me: when
Bitcoin first made the news cycle, I tried to learn how it worked and
discovered that there were too few resources addressed to programmers
(like myself). There was always the Bitcoin reference wiki (https://
en.bitcoin.it), but in those days, it wasn’t as clearly organized as today,
and although I read Satoshi’s whitepaper, I didn’t really understand it at
first—at least not how the cryptographic parts worked.
