Imagine you have a colleague, friend, or relative who knows very little about economics, money, or cryptocurrencies, and this person wants to learn more Bitcoin (BTC). This article looks at five great ways that an absolute newcomer to crypto could start learning about Bitcoin.

Before we start, it is worth giving acknowledgement to Bitcoin advocate Matt Odell (@matt_odell on Twitter), the co-host of the weekly “Rabbit Hole Recap” segment on the “Tales From the Crypt” podcast, who provided the inspiration for this article by sending out a tweet on May 24 that asked his followers what would be the first link you would send an absolute Bitcoin beginner who asked for material to help him/her understand Bitcoin.

Also, highly deserving of mention is Casa CTO Jameson Lopp, whose wonderful and painstakingly compiled and maintained “Bitcoin Information & Resources” portal is a treasure chest of links to resources (of varying levels of difficulty) for understanding Bitcoin.
