If there is one way to learn more about the cryptocurrency and blockchain industry, it has to be through books. Currently, the cryptocurrency news shows that the market is in a nosedive. However, bear markets are part of every economic cycle.
The good thing is that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, as well as the blockchain technology, are appearing in books and are therefore shaping our future. Below, we are listing some of the best books about these technologies.
A great book if you want to begin an adventure into understanding the fundamentals of the crypto industry. It will take you back to the creation of Bitcoin but also some of the major case studies and roles in the industry.
Written by renowned management and business strategist Don Tapscott and his son Alex, this book goes into the technical aspects of explanations, providing examples and illustrations of how the blockchain technology works – as well as its real-world implications.
This book explains the basic technical details as to how blockchain works. On top of this, it also covers the areas of confusion or areas where a simple explanation is required. The good thing is that you don’t have to have prior knowledge of programming as it explains everything in a non-technical fashion.
“The Bitcoin Standard” is a book that analyses the historical context to the rise of Bitcoin from the purview of an economist. The author introduces the idea of Bitcoin and how it meets the current challenge of the financial system, becoming a store of value instead of just another currency.
Last but not the least in our top crypto/blockchain books to read is this collection of thoughts from two authors, giving solid advice on how the technology is changing and evolving in the future. Even though it does not focus on Bitcoin, it definitely covers the prism of blockchain – especially the issue of privacy in the world today.
We hope this selection of books will help you expand your horizons when it comes to crypto and blockchain in general – and see them from a new perspective!
Gemini Founders (Winklevoss Twins) Launch A New Mobile Crypto Trading App
“A lot of our decisions have perhaps given off a perception that we’re more institutional-based. The reality of the situation is that we have a diverse customer base. And the retail story is just beginning.”The twins and Gemini founders also revealed their plans to expand to the Asian crypto market where they will face stiff competition from the thriving exchange industry that includes companies such as Bitfinex, Binance and Huobi.
Bitcoin Grows Its Dominance Rate To 55.14% Amid Crypto Price Panic
Bitcoin Hash Rate Drops, Miners Shut Down Their Devices
“In the six-day period ending 3rd December, 21.8% fewer blocks than the expected 144 per day were found, as miners left the network before the difficulty adjusted, and as a result, fewer blocks were found. Therefore in the short term, there was a 21.8% fall in mining incentives on top of the impact of the declining price.”So the conclusion would be that all of the crypto miners are operating at a loss right now, but this should not have a strong impact on Bitcoin itself.
Bitcoin And Ethereum With New ‘Bottom-Like’ Drops
“Rejected by previous support. Seems to be forming a descending channel on the LTFs (aka a way to visualize a downtrend). I often use channels for confluence with horizontal levels (both the rejections from the black horizontals were also at the channel boundary).”When it comes to the short-term trend of ETH, another analyst named Edward Morra raised the possibility of ETH dropping to $55 and said:
“If ETH bulls lose this support and low set at $83, it is basically vacuum till next meaningful support around $55 – $45, another 35% downside from here.”If Ethereum drops by another 35%, tokens will definitely bleed out and continue to lose their value from the already low price range, which could eventually lead some to lose all of their value in the short-term.
