Top 5 Websites To Learn About Bitcoin

While┬ánot a day goes by that Bitcoin doesn’t steal the headlines in a major publication, it is still confusing for most people who have no idea what a “cryptocurrency” is. Unlike the stock market there is a very steep learning curve to get started with Bitcoin and without understanding the basics it can be too intimidating to enter the market.

Learn Bitcoin

We have reviewed dozens of Bitcoin tutorials and put together a solid list of five great places to learn the basics of Bitcoin. You can’t go wrong with any of these and this will save you the time of having to sift through all the junk to find the good stuff.

  1. Up and Running with Bitcoin (Lynda.com) – in our opinion this is the single best Bitcoin course on the net. While there is a membership fee associated with Lynda.com you can start with a 7-day free trial which is more than enough time to go through the entire course. This is a video course so it really does a great job of explaining the basics in a simple and accessible format.
  2. Bitcoin Basics (Forbes) – Forbes has a great introductory article that will walk you through all the basics of Bitcoin. While you’re probably going to want to read more than just this article it’s still a great starting point.
  3. 6 Bitcoin Basics for Beginners (Entrepreneur.com) – Like Forbes, Entrepreneur.com did a great intro tutorial, in this case covering six basic concepts that everyone should understand.
  4. BitcoinBasics.com – as the name says, this is a website dedicated to understanding the basics of Bitcoin. It doesn’t go into as much detail as you might want but it does a good job of giving a high-level overview.
  5. Bitcoin.org Introduction – of course the official Bitcoin website makes this list, their introduction is a great starting place and recommends more resources to learn more.
