Any good material to really understand the power of the blockchain and cryptocurrencies?

Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum are definitely getting noticed because of their rising prices. But understanding the blockchain and its potential to be the next big disruption for apps and services is still relatively complex and vast. Are there any recommendations for reading or listening material to understand this better, starting at the basics?

    Just started reading this. So far, it's been a really good mix of technical and non-technical info to really understand the underlying tech.

    I guess, the best way to understand the power of blockchain and cryptocurrencies is to improve your knowledge, so it is important to read much. Look at the crypto reviews first. Then find a good book and check forecasts. Having gained enough knowledge, you can easily choose a proper cryptocurrency to invest in.
