Bitcoin reading for developers

People who discuss bitcoin can’t agree on much, but we can all agree that there is a lot of bad writing out there about bitcoin. Over the last few weeks I’ve taken an interest in bitcoin and here is the reading material I found most useful.

A short 10,000 foot overview

The PDF that started it all

A very nice bitcoin wiki

A long primer that explains cryptocurrencies from scratch

When you start doing development work, dont use real money, use Testnet. It’s a parallel bitcoin protocol that has no value but is the same source code.

If you want to buy some real bitcoins with US Dollars, I recommend coinbase. They are very likely not a scam, considering who their investors are. 

If you liked this post, you can tip me with bitcoin!
