15 Great Ways for Absolute Beginners to Learn About Bitcoin (BTC)

Siamak Masnavi

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.

Former Goldman Sachs Manager Raoul Pal Teases Potential Breakout for Ethereum

Michael LaVere
  • Former Goldman Sachs manager Raoul Pal claims cryptocurrency is on the verge of a rally.
  • Pal published several charts on Twitter showing how an ethereum breakout may lead the price run.

Former Goldman Sachs hedge fund manager Raoul Pal teased on his Twitter account that Ethereum could lead the next breakout for cryptoassets and expressed interest in investing in ETH. 

In a series of tweets published July 8, Pal outlined several charts showing bitcoin and other top cryptoassets on the verge of a rally. Pal claimed that bitcoin was close to breaking the small wedge it had formed since May. 

However, Pal explained that Ethereum held potential to lead the next cryptoasset rally via a breakout. 

In a subsequent tweet, the former Goldman Sachs manager claimed not to own any ETH but was considering investing after looking at the chart. He called bitcoin his “primary vehicle” but noted that a windfall for any of the top cryptoassets would cause the rest to rise in value. 

In April, Pal called bitcoin “the future” and said the crypto-asset could reach a $10 trillion market capitalization in the future.
