NEW PEEPS The Bitcoin website and Original White Paper written by Satoshi Nakamoto. For introductory info on crypto, check out Binance Academy and Jameson Lopp's site. The total number of Bitcoins that will ever exist is hard-coded into the software at ~21 million BTC. These 21 million BTC are divisible down to 8 decimal places, providing for about 2.1 quadrillion transactable units of the currency. The smallest unit, 0.00000001 BTC, is called a 'Satoshi'. FAQs about cryptocurrencies and financial terms and crypto lingo. Andreas Antonopoulos on the JRE podcast [1, 2, 3, 4, +]; these are layman's explanations of the invention of distributed ledger technology. Arguments for why Bitcoin is historically the greatest advancement in currency. Tuur Demeester at the 2013 Bitcoin conference debunking myths.

More detailed descriptors of how the Bitcoin ecosystem works. Bitcoin's transaction and store-of-value superiority. Bitcoin's performance - Best performing currency of 2013, 15, 16, 17, 19, and 20. :: Wallets, Clients, Importance :: 1. BTC- Bitcoin wallets and phone wallet. Their official IRC and forums. -> Download the Electrum wallet instead if you don't want to sync 200+ GB. 2. ETH- Ethereum wallets and their official forums. 3. XMR- Monero and ZEC/Zcash wallets. The "Golden Three" in cryptocurrency have shifted from being BTC, LTC, and XRP to BTC, ETH, and XMR. The reasons for this are because Litecoin stopped being ASIC resistant, which was its selling point, and Ripple is a shit-tier company (take it from someone that was on the inside) that is aiding the enemy - fiat. Ethereum is by far the most robust turing-complete cryptocurrency, and therefore development platform, in the space. Monero/Zcash are the most robust private currencies to date. You should never have to bother with any currency outside of the golden three if you are just going to be day trading or scalping, not just because the rest are irrelevant technologies, but because trading them artificially inflates their volumes, making them look more viable as technologies than they really are.
