Learn About Bitcoin

This (ever-growing!) page is designed to be a one-stop shop of information for anyone wanting to learn more about Bitcoin. It’s designed for complete beginners who want to get the absolute basics down first, and then progress to intermediate and even advanced.


There is little doubt that Bitcoin is here to stay and will almost certainly become a part of our day-to-day lives in the future. Although Bitcoin is still young at only 14 years old (at time of writing), its rate of adoption and development is now moving faster than the internet’s did in the 1990s and will likely have the same – or greater – level of global impact. Those who learn about it now will, of course, carry an advantage into the future.


Be warned – going down the “rabbit hole” of knowledge is addictive! Once you “see” Bitcoin, you can’t “unsee” it! Understanding the possibilities that lay ahead will give you an optimistic viewpoint on what is otherwise a bleak and uncertain economic outlook going forward.


If you’re a total beginner, grab a cup of tea and start at Step 1 below by watching the pre-recorded webinar below at your leisure.


Then, we’d strongly recommend that you register for the FREE “Question and Answer” webinar covered in Step 2. Here, you can learn some next steps, the difference between Bitcoin and other coins and, of course, actually put any questions you may still have to a human (you can even do this anonymously if you’d like!)


In the meantime, all the resources listed under Step 3 are available at all times!

You’ll find links to books, podcasts, YouTube channels and great articles to browse at your leisure, each of which has been marked with the levels of beginner, intermediate or advanced. You can bookmark this page to come back to it often.

Step 1

Start here if you're a complete beginner!

“Bitcoin Basics” by Jason Deane.

Jason has run this webinar for over 3 years and it has now been seen by thousands of people. It is regarded as one of the definitive explanations of our existing financial system, its problems, what Bitcoin is and why its fits in – all in simple, friendly terms.

Step 2 - Ask Questions!

One you’ve watched the video above, you can join a LIVE webinar to learn about the difference between Bitcoin and other coins, how to maximize (and earn) additional Bitcoin and find out about basic investment strategies. This is a much shorter webinar, around 20 minutes, with a longer AMA (Ask Me Anything) session where you can ask any question you like about the industry (or money and eocnomics in general) to the presenter! This is also provided free of charge as part of the Bitcoin Pioneers’ mission to drive Bitcoin education and adoption.

The best Bitcoin explanation on the net?

These days there is a lot of great content about Bitcoin, but this video, published in 2016, remains one of the best overall explanations of Bitcoin itself to this date. Andreas Antonopolous’ style is also very humerous and his delivery compelling. Enjoy!
