List of Bitcoin/Blockchain Resources

As AIDL grew, once in a while people would talk about blockchain would affect AI or deep learning.  Currently it is still a long shot, but blockchain by itself is a very interesting technology and it deserves our notice.

Here are some resources you may use to learn about blockchain.   Unlike "Top 5 List" for AIDL,  I don't really understand the technology too well.  But also unlike "List of Neuroscience MOOC", Greg Dubela did give me a lot of recommendations on what you should learned up.  Thus this post is also used as a resource post in "Blockchain Nation".

Introductory Videos:

  • (2 minute) This video: explaining the purpose of blockchain in 2 minutes, and the promise it makes.
  • This 6-part series from Dash School is a great introductory series on what Blockchain is, how it is governed, and several fundamental concepts.   Greg highly recommend the series.

MOOC

Blockchain is still a new development, so it's harder to find MOOC which can teach you the whole thing in entirety.  We found there are couple of exceptions:

Books

Visualizing Blockchain

Different Cryptos: (under construction)

Learning blockchain these days usually means you know different the characteristics of different coins.  Here are list of interesting ones.

  • Bitcoin
  • Litecoin
  • Ripple
  • Ethereum Classic
  • Ethereum
  • Dogecoin
  • Freicoin

As I said before, we are really no expert on the topic.  But as of 20170705, I am taking the Princeton class and I found it quite promising and get into the detail of how blockchain really works.

To be reviewed:

  • Someone also brought up University of Nicosia's Introductory MOOC on bitcoin.  I haven't see too much review yet.  So let's decide later then.
