What are some of the best online resources/books for learning all about crypto-currencies?

I'm late to the crypto game, but I want to at the very least gain a much better understanding of how it works, why it's after exploding in popularity and ideally educate myself on investment practices. Thanks in advance!

    This is the original bible for learning about Bitcoin (Mastering Ethereum coming soon). It gets into the technical details but was still not too hard to follow if you aren't a technical person. I think it's one of the first books that anyone should read getting into bitcoin and/or other cryptocurrencies.
    I would recommend this book as well; the technology surrounding blockchain is new and in some areas difficult to wrap your head around. This book did the best job yet of helping me to understand what bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in general can do.

    This is a great read that takes a step back and looks at the cryptoasset market as a whole. Definitely more about investing in assets rather than diving into too much technical detail.

      If you follow the random walk theory, you'll like it. If you're a value investor, you'll probably like it too. If you're a technical trader, you'll probably won't find much besides the first chapters. In any case, the book is good and worth reading.

    This is my favorite blockchain-related podcast. @LauraShin does a great job of explaining advanced topics in an easy to understand way and has GREAT speakers on every week. They did one podcast that was for beginners, so that would be a great place for you to start.

    We have a class for that! It's kinda tricky to learn online because you won't really have the real life interaction with an instructor to help you.
