When you go out into Internet space to look for some information on the crypto world, you may end up being confused and baffled. Suddenly, everyone’s an expert and each has something to say about it. Without a basic knowledge of the technology, your lack of knowledge may backfire on you one day if you get into the clingy paws of ICO internet scammers, so before you invest, it is important to learn some of the basics and fundamentals.submitted by Stealthex_io to StealthEX [link] [comments]
Here is a heap of cryptocurrency books we recommend you to read to nurture your crypto side of the brain:
Digital Gold by Nathaniel PopperIn his shortlisted for the 2015 Financial Times and McKinsey business book of the year, Popper tells us the story of bitcoin since its early days. He tells the story through the eyes of famous and bright crypto influencers including South American and Asian millionaires, the Winklevoss twins and the legendary Satoshi Nakamoto. The author compares the digital currency to gold, claiming cryptocurrency to be the new global standard of storing the value.
Some readers say that Digital Gold book is a ready material for a thriller – unexpected plot twists, powerful influential organizations, drugs, blackmail make up the fascinating story to read and a really good starting point to understand what Bitcoin and Blockchain Technology is. The only downside that it only takes you up to 2015 but don’t worry, those were jam-packed years of growing.
The Internet of Money by Andreas AntonopoulosEven though Andreas Antonopoulos is one of the world’s foremost bitcoin and blockchain experts, he has a unique talent to simply explain complicated materials herewith maintaining the significance of the topic. For readers who want to explore more theory, The Internet of Money book is actually a collection of talks given by technology-enthusiast Andreas Antonopoulos, where he surpasses all the technical “geeky” details. In each section he delivers complex discussions in average words, exploring the economic, political, social and philosophical sides of the technology that has forever affected our world.
By the way, the book was released in 3-volume series so you won’t miss out on any trivia.
The Little Bitcoin Book: Why Bitcoin Matters for Your Freedom, Finances, and Future by Alejandro Machado, Jimmy Song, Alena Vranova, Timi Ajiboye, Luis Buenaventura, Lily Liu, Alexander Lloyd, Alex GladsteinWhy does the price keep changing? Is Bitcoin worth investing my money into? How does it even have value? Why do people keep saying that it is the future of currency? The answers to all these questions you are going to find out in this book written by 8 experienced crypto experts. They finished it in just four days and they did well in accumulating their knowledge in a book format along with covering a lot of different questions and concerns around the digital currency. The book also explains how Bitcoin affects people’s freedom and opportunities. Also, there is a Q & A section with some of the most frequently asked questions about Bitcoin.
Cryptoassets: The Innovative Investor’s Guide to Bitcoin and Beyond by Chris Burniske & Jack TatarThe book provides a useful framework on some popular cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, Ripple, etc. and also explains why and how to invest and what would be the best thing to invest into. The authors make a major focus on investment strategies that really work, and teach you on fundamental notions like volume, liquidity and volatility of crypto coins. The authors use infographics, equations, historical data and statistics to teach you about crypto assets and markets.
This crypto book is as suitable for the beginners as for the advanced investors. It’s written in a straight forward style and will probably serve as a good reference for the future.
Mastering Bitcoin: Programming the Open Blockchain by Andreas M. AntonopoulosAnother Andreas Antonopoulos book but at this time an intermediate level. If you want a technical explanation, with code samples – get this book, Mastering Bitcoin is for people who already have a programming or computer science background. Well-delivered, useful and enlightening – the book takes you through the intricate world of bitcoin, providing the knowledge you need to participate in the internet of money. Whether you’re a software developer, startup investor, or simply curious about the technology, this edition is definitely worth your attention!
The Bitcoin Standard: The Decentralized Alternative to Central Banking by Saifedean AmmousThis is a book written by a world-class economist Saifedean Ammous, where he explains how money works, why some money works better than the others and how monetary systems evolved throughout history – from ancient times to our days.
Some people call it an eye-opening book, which would make you overthink the concept of money in general. Anyway, the book certainly is thought-provoking and it might induce you to dive deeper into the crypto world. The author doesn’t try to predict the future of money but to widen our horizon, to understand the problem of our economic system, and see the possibility of having a decentralized alternative to central banking.
The Book Of Satoshi: The Collected Writings of Bitcoin Creator Satoshi Nakamoto by Phil ChampagneHave you ever wondered who stands behind the whole crypto industry? Who made it all possible? The fun thing is that nobody knows. All we know is the name – Satoshi Nakamoto. In his book, Champagne dives deeper into his mysterious personality and investigates who Nakamoto might be, whether it is one person or a group, and how it was possible for Nakamoto to create the game-changing Bitcoin while remaining completely anonymous. The book includes actual emails and internet posts by Nakamoto, presented in chronological order. Fine resource for anyone interested in Bitcoin, it gives insight into Satoshi’s thinking, and readers can look at Bitcoin from a whole new perspective!

Hiya folks! This was one of the most eventful weeks in recent Parachute history. Strap onto your seatbelts. Here we go!submitted by abhijoysarkar to ParachuteToken [link] [comments]
Cap announced the start of a new journey with BOMB’s latest venture, BOMBX (more on that later). In short, new groups will get to explore ParJar, new tokens will be added and a ton of new communities will get to experience Parachute in all its glory. Plus, ParJar will add the Binance chain to its list of supported chains. BEP2 tokens, here we come! Cap’s interview with The Crypto Lifestyle was this week as well. Have a look! PAR got listed on MetaMorphPro through a Twitter vote. This week we added a new token to ParJar: SNTR (Silent Notary). Read more about the project here. Don’t forget Cap’s reminder: when you join a new partner project channel, read up on them, join to learn about the project, be a part of their community. We want ParJar to be used as a tool for that community. Hence, try not to tip other coins/tokens there (including PAR).
Derjenige is a master of woodwork. Check out how he makes PAR coasters
Ian hosted an art trivia in the Tiproom. 50k PAR given away. Noice! In the Big Chili Race, Jason is still ahead of the competition at 47 cm. Just 3 more centimeters to win 400k PAR. If you’ve been meaning to use the Parachute sticker set on Telegram but couldn’t find it, click here. Cryptonoob has been hard at work designing UX concepts for the Parachute app. This week, he interviewed Parachuters to gauge user sentiment. Chris announced the start of a British Open Pick ‘Em Tournament with a prize pot of 100k PAR. Say what! Jason’s flash game for 65k PAR to find the “weirdest product for sale on the internet” saw some super wacky items being posted. Evan, Alexis and CF picked the craziest ones. Pika, Nilzinho, Richi and Airdrop won honourable mentions. Lmao! Roberto was kind enough to translate the ParJar guide to Spanish.

BOMB announced the launch of an exploratory incubator on the Binance Chain called BOMBX. As Zachary explained during the livestream of the launch, while BOMB signifies destruction, BOMBX signifies creation. All BOMB token holders will receive BOMBX tokens (XIO) in 1:25 ratio. Find out more from Dash’s article linked above. Check this tweet thread for the TLDR. If you plan to watch the full announcement video, check out the index to skip to the sections of your interest. This infographic should help explain the incubator ecosystem being planned. There was also a giveaway for the top lessons shared by entrepreneurs from the BOMB community. As announced in the last update, BOMB was listed on Hotbit this week. Benjamin’s latest report on tokenomics got published. And as promised, the token statistics dashboard went live this week. Opacity is also one of the partners of BOMBX. As the explained in their article, Opacity will be the preferred storage provider for startups incubated by BOMBX. Opacity’s whitepaper is also now available with an Opacity storage handle for downloading and reading.
This week’s Parachute + Uptrennd brainstorm session focused on Technical Analysis. Uptrennd founder Jeff sat down with Enjin CTO Witek Radomski to talk about the Efinity scaling solution, ERC-1155 marketplace and other topics. Membership on Uptrennd has been growing steadily. This called for a celebratory giveaway with egamers.io. Plus, Idex listing of 1UP is expected next week. Another public voting for a free detailed review of a project by the Uptrennd team started this week. aXpire’s AXPR token was listed on Binance Dex. Woot woot! Like last week, the weekly aXpire burn event was for 20k AXPR. Reasons for the double burn to be released in next update. There’s also a new dashboard to track all the token burns now. Checked out Clinton’s cool aXpire mug yet? Do it! And finally, catch up on the weekly updates at aXpire and the crypto space from this video. 2gether won the second prize on Pitch Day at the Barcelona Trading Conference. Congratulations!

Fantom appointed their consultant Bariq Sekandari as Director of BD and Listings this week. Bariq has been the driving force behind the deluge of FTM listings on exchanges in the last few weeks. The project also entered into a partnership with The Private Office of Sheikh Saeed bin Ahmed Al Maktoum and SEED Group to join hands in the Dubai smart city project. This news was covered by The Merkle, Coin Spectator and The Daily Chain. In this week’s technical article, the Sfxdx team writes about ChainWitness consensus algorithm. If you’ve missed the July updates of Fantom, fret not. CMO Michael Chen has covered it all in this post. Fantom also joined the Government Blockchain Association (GBA) this week along with several key figures from Fantom being added to the GBA Consultant Directory.

|Is there any part of our economy that you can see as a ticking bomb? I know student loans are a concern for many individuals of my 20 something generation, but is there something else we need to be worried about? Were people aware of the housing market warning signs before the 2008 collapse?||Ticking bomb is strong but officials both inside and outside the Fed are concerned that low interest rates we've had for so long is causing some bubbles to be built. Student debt has grown rapidly, and is impacting the spending decisions of students after college, but so long as the economy improves, it's a good bet both for the lender and the student taking on the debt. Before 2008, were there warnings about housing? Absolutely. But even among those who thought housing was overvalued, there were very few who then saw how leveraged the entire financial system was to housing.|
|Do you think the current Administration deserves credit for the recovery of the stock market in the past several years? If so, what policies in particular do you think helped the recovery?||My colleague Russ Britt recently ran a terrific story examining those very issues -- well worth a click. Link to www.marketwatch.com My quick 2c is that the White House did act quickly to restore the financial system and provide stimulus (flawed as it may have been) during the recession, but has done comparatively little to help ordinary homeowners.|
|What do you think can be done to create incentives for people to learn manufacturing trades and (hopefully) bring a lot of manufacturing back to the United States?||Two great questions. I think there's a big movement more generally to improve what's an education system badly needing repair, and improved literacy and numeracy more generally would help that. I'm a little less enamored with specific tweaks here and there to give breaks to manufacturers. We want a dynamic economy and don't want to load it up with too many complicated and often conflicting incentives.|
|What do you think about rating companies?||So on the one thing they've been doing forever -- rating the prospects that debt-issuing companies will go bankrupt -- they are actually very good. On rating asset-backed securities, obviously, not. And on government debt, also they haven't done a good job. Classic example of difficulties in moving out of the niche you understand.|
|How is the unrest in the world (Ukraine/Israel) going to affect the economy short term or long term?||In the short term, the risks are with commodities, and energy prices in particular. But remember, everyone has an interest in selling, and buying, oil. Read a fascinating article on how even the terror group ISIS is selling oil. The Israeli economy will definitely feel the pinch of lower tourism, but that's not likely to have an impact on the global economy.|
|Don't you think that the market is a parasite for the economy? There are people who earn millions and billions without producing anything. Edit : typo.||Interesting Q. I think there's a benefit to trading and arbitrage -- it can help lower costs for businesses to invest, by making it easier for companies to raise money. But abuses can filter out of this world and, as 2007 showed, wreck the broader economy. What's important is making sure the large banks and other institutions aren't providing too much leverage to financial markets.|
|Do you think that the floating NAV for money market funds benefits the end investor?||So, the issue with money-market funds really is one of risk perception. People treat MMFs like banks, but they're not, and don't have a backstop, yet when there was a run, the federal government stepped in. This is what the SEC tried to address recently after four years of intense debate. Not sure they came up with the perfect answer.|
|The consensus every year since 2009 has been later half 'strength" gdp has been remarkably weak during the recovery. If we have another miss of latter half strength, do you expect fundamentals to meaningfully lead to a correction, or has the sea of liquidity put in a floor under markets that cannot be broken?||I saw a little essay on this yesterday, and honestly, I don't agree that the second half always disappoints. Q3 2013 was 4.1% growth, Q4 was 2.6% -- that's pretty good! But then, Q3 2012 was 2.8% and Q4 was 0.1% -- not so good! The Fed's taking away liquidity -- or will be soon -- so no, I don't think markets cannot be broken. You can argue of course that the Fed rushes in as soon as markets struggle, and I would have a hard time disagreeing!|
|Historically, this period in fed policy mirrors almost exactly what the federal reserve did in the 1930s with the gold stock. This time, they are calling it QE. When the fed backed off of gold stock accommodation leading up to 1937, the market corrected 60 percent. What kind of reaction do you expect to see at the end of QE3?||I think one good thing the Fed has done is to be extremely open about the timing and schedule of bond purchases and when they're going to end. So there will be no surprises. I don't think QE3 has had much of an impact on the economy so the lack of it shouldn't, in theory, have much of an impact either. Markets have a mind of their own, however.|
|What's the most unexpected thing you have ever had to cover at work?||I was in London during the Great Recession and to keep coming into market implosions was just jaw-dropping some days. I remember one day at a meeting with our colleagues, discussing the possibility of what would happen if banks collapsed and how supermarkets would function. We were actually having those discussions.|
|Hypothetically, if the GOP takes the Senate and keeps the house, what (if any) tax legislation could be passed and signed by Obama?||I think it will be difficult for any tax legislation to go through. But right now there's a lot of focus on what are called inversions -- a way for U.S. companies to pay tax overseas instead of here -- so corporate tax reform has the highest chance. The idea would be to lower rates and eliminate deductions but this is easier said than done!|
|Do references to Bitcoin automatically make you roll your eyes or do you have an interest in it?||I don't have a financial interest in bitcoin, but I am intrigued by it, for sure. There's clearly flaws, and the whole 'mining' process seems to be nearly as bad for the environment as physical mining. But I could see a continuing role in the financial system for bitcoin or for different electronic currencies.|
|Is now a good time to buy a home? There seems to be a echo-bubble going on at the moment.||Mortgage rates are historically very low. If you can get credit, and you're comfortable with prices in your area -- and are comfortable with idea of living in that house for quite a while -- then absolutely. But not all areas are the same -- prices in some areas, like San Francisco, are looking expensive.|
|Hi Steve. Thanks for doing an AMA. I'm curious about the longer term effects of QE on the market once QE ends soon and rates are set to rise. Is this something the Fed might keep in its toolbox to use in the future even once rates are above zero?||I do think the Fed will keep in the toolbox, so to speak. In fact, I'm pretty sure Janet Yellen explicitly said so. I think history will judge it was a terrific tool when markets were basically frozen-- so-called QE1. QE2 and QE3 have had far less impact on the economy and possibly have been more trouble than they were worth, though that's going to be debated for some time to come.|
|Thanks for the reply! Great way to interact directly with your readers.||Definitely. It's important not just to write but to listen.|
|What's your favorite visually, personal, or information packed infographic/chart that you'd like to show us? Personally I'm a fan of the largest Phylogenetic Tree I know of found here in .pdf format made by the people over at the UoT. Come join us over at /infographics sometime!||This is one I did recently that has received a lot of attention -- on the happiest and unhappiest cities. Why are people in Louisiana so happy? I have no idea. Link to blogs.marketwatch.com Not just on MarketWatch, you're seeing news sites devoting much more attention to infographics, and some are quite good. I'll be sure to check out the Reddit thread.|
|Why is it a good thing that the Federal Reserve is controlled by private bankers? How can we be sure that they serve the interest of the general public ?||Whatever the set up, the Fed is mostly under most control by the people appointed by the president and confirmed by the senate. The regional Fed presidents (who are not picked by elected officials) have a say but Janet Yellen, the current chairwoman, has a far bigger influence than they do.|
|Do you think the SEC will regulate dark pools and HFT as more evidence of front-running trades comes to light? Have you read "Flash Boys" or followed the work of Nanex?||The SEC is definitely looking into this area. And I've read Flash Boys, and do read Nanex, as well as those with opposing opinions. Not all HFT is front running, but it's apparent some is. The SEC for good reason is treading carefully into this area, but it's clear there will be action.|
|Do you want to abolish the FED?||Nope! I think Congress should provide healthy oversight, and honestly I'm not as freaked out by this 'auditing the Fed' idea that some are. But we had a world before central banks, and the data I've seen suggest we weren't better off for it.|
|What's your opinion on basic/guaranteed income?||It's an interesting concept, the one the Swiss were debating. It's not totally different from the safety net we have here, and writing checks is more efficient than means testing. That said, I don't think anyone seriously thinks it will happen.|
|Would what be your best piece of advice for a recent college grad looking to break into the finance world?||I'm probably not your best source here! What I can tell you is that the traditional investment banks aren't the only place to look -- hedge funds, venture-capital funds and private-equity funds are often at the cutting edge.|
