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 write concise, high-level, semitechnical primers from a fundamental standpoint (ie. not trading). Love to discuss the underlying problems & solutions that real blockchain & token projects are attempting to solve. Sometimes I go in-depth on more advanced topics such as the recent Plasma whitepaper. More than open to suggestions on a next article here :)

    Because it's an easy to understand explanation of the technology, that will get you hooked on the actual technology.

    Great collection of articles and links around blockchain and other aspects of the decentralised world, mostly for investors and entrepreneurs (not for developers).

    This is an awesome podcast that brings in thought leaders in the industry to talk about what they are currently working on and how they see the future. The only downside is that it's just two episodes a month 😓

    This 18 min reading explains why crypto assets have so much potential but also why you should think twice before investing in them. I think this is a very balanced article from the very basics, and I recommend it.

    Daniel Jeffries writing on the topic for hackernoon is a great intro into the potential of crypto to reshape the way the world deals with money. If nothing else, it will stoke your interest in learning more and getting involved...
