Best books about blockchain
  • Your Complete Guide to Being an Effective
    Blockchain Investor

Introduction
  • Investing in Blockchain companies is no different
    from investing in any other industry. To succeed,
    you need a thorough understanding of the space
    you plan to be in before you even think of
    allocating any capital toward a particular
    project or asset. It is not an accident that do
    your own research has become more and more of a
    chant for the Crypto niche in the Blockchain
    industry, over time. Following this mantra is
    what leads to rational investing and trading in
    any sphere. Below, we have compiled a list for
    you of what we believe are the must read books
    for any aspiring Blockchain and Crypto investor.

Cryptoassets The Innovative Investor's Guide to
Bitcoin and Beyond
  • by Chris Burniske and Jack Tatar
  • Of all of the books about Blockchain, this book
    often comes up as an excellent guide to the
    entirely new and rapidly emerging asset class of
    Cryptocurrencies from industry experts. It gives
    a broad overview of the state of digital assets
    and is highly recommended if you want to
    understand where the financial world is moving
    to. If youve been in crypto for a while, it may
    also be a great review of the history of
    Cryptocurrencies, while if youre new, you will
    gain valuable insights into investing in this
    space. On the road to making all of this clear,
    Burniske and Tatar highlight how to spot quality
    Cryptoassets, avoid hype and fraudulent projects,
    and compose and balance your portfolio.
    Cryptoassets is a must-read for beginning
    crypto-enthusiasts and experienced capital market
    investors alike who want to learn a portfolio
    strategy backed by the opinions of industry
    experts.

Digital Gold Bitcoin and the Inside Story of the
Misfits and Millionaires Trying to Reinvent Money
  • by Nathaniel Popper
  • This book has been treated as if it were the
    Bitcoin bible of sorts by many in the space. It
    is not difficult to find in any group of
    cryptophiles a handful of investors and traders
    who got their start in the space with this work
    and there is a reason for that. Nathaniel Popper
    followed the movers and shakers in the early days
    of the Bitcoin space in order to compile the
    definitive history of it in an engaging fashion.
    Here, with Poppers engaging style of writing, it
    is fairly easy to understand the how and why of
    the rise of Bitcoin and the blockchain industry.
    This work is often considered as one of the first
    blockchain investment books that you should read
    before you dive deeper into a more technical
    analysis of the industry. Think about it like
    getting your feet wet before diving into the
    Crypto space.

The Internet of Money
  • by Andreas M. Antonopolous
  • If you are not already familiar with Andreas
    Antonopolous, then you should be.
  • This particular book does an excellent job of
    answering the question of why Bitcoin has brought
    about a financial and technical revolution, with
    a potential that exceeds its original label of
    being a digital currency. In doing so, Andreas
    shows us how the rise of Bitcoin may be equated
    with the rise of the Internet. If one central
    theme can be taken from this work, it is that
    Blockchain is fundamentally changing our approach
    to solving problems of all kinds in all areas,
    due to its status as a decentralized technology.

Mastering Bitcoin Unlocking Digital Currencies
  • by Andreas M. Antonopolous
  • Andreas did not stop at one seminal work for this
    space. In order to fully understand Cryptos
    beginnings and possible future, you need to read
    both this and The Internet Money. The general
    utility of Mastering Bitcoin lies in the fact
    that programmers in the industry often consider
    it to be the best book on blockchain out there,
    from a technical standpoint. More specifically,
    if you want to understand anything with regard to
    how Cryptocurrency networks are programmed, then
    you should start here. As Bitcoin was the father
    of Cryptocurrencies, its code was effectively the
    father of the code of those who came after.
    Because of this, in a deep, technical sense, this
    may be the best book on Blockchain out there.

The Age of Cryptocurrency How Bitcoin and
Digital Money Are Challenging the Global Economic
Order
  • by Paul Vigna and Michael Casey
  • The book dives into the questions of the
    ideological and technical roots of
    Cryptocurrencies from the point of view of
    journalists who have an extensive amount of
    experience in the financial industry. Vigna and
    Casey demystify the origins and functions of
    Cryptocurrencies, concluding with the central
    hypothesis that we will soon reach the age of a
    cyber-economy. Given this, one could also term
    this a guide to surviving in such a time. Along
    the way to reaching these conclusions, they take
    an unbiased view of the space, starting with
    Bitcoin, which may be particularly attractive to
    those of you who enjoy getting a balanced opinion
    on a new investment. Even though it is not
    necessarily the best book on Blockchain
    technology on a technical level, it is possibly
    the best for those looking for more of a history
    around the industrys rise.

The Bitcoin Standard The Decentralized
Alternative to Central Banking
  • by Saifedean Ammous
  • The Bitcoin Standard may be considered to be on
    the top of the list of Blockchain investment
    books to read, just like the others. Chiefly,
    this is because it deeply analyzes the historical
    context of the rise of Bitcoin, the economic
    properties that have allowed it to grow quickly,
    and its likely economic, political, and social
    implications. Ammous recaps the history of
    technologies performing the functions of money,
    starting from primitive shells to modern
    government debt. With this background in place,
    he moves on to explain the operation of Bitcoin
    in a functional and intuitive way. Also, the book
    explores some of the most common questions like
    Is bitcoin wasting energy? Is it for criminals?
    Who controls it? Can it be killed?

Reminiscences of a Stock Operator
  • by Edwin Lefèvre
  • First published in 1923, while this is not a
    Blockchain book, this time tested book represents
    a brilliant take on crowd psychology and market
    timing, which is why we believe it is a must-read
    for all investors, whether new or experienced.
    Overall, regardless of the fact that
    Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain represent a new
    industry entirely, the advice contained in
    Lefèvres work is timeless, simply due to how
    people think about investing.

The Intelligent Investor The Definitive Book on
Value Investing
  • by Benjamin Graham
  • While this is not typically considered to be one
    of the best Blockchain or Crypto books, per se,
    Grahams philosophy of value investing is
    essential for any investor to know. In a
    nutshell, its utility lies in the fact that it
    helps investors mitigate against substantial
    errors in their strategies, while teaching them
    to develop long-term strategies. Grahams vision
    has made this book the stock market bible ever
    since its original publication in 1949. This
    particular work is also widely renowned for the
    praise it received from Warren Buffett himself.
    Do a quick Google search anywhere for the best
    blockchain investing books and you will find this
    in almost every list compiled. While this may not
    be one of the typical best blockchain investment
    books to read, it is essential, especially for
    those coming into this new industry with little
    to no investment experience. Just as Digital Gold
    is a kind of Bitcoin bible, consider this to be a
    useful candidate for a general investing bible.

An Altcoins Traders Handbook
  • by Nik Patel
  • The book details 5 years of experience of a
    specific cryptocurrency trader and his efforts in
    putting together what he claims to be a
    comprehensive strategy for profitable altcoin
    speculation. The first part is centered around
    his personal life. The second hones in on
    practical trading strategies, including
    fundamental and technical analysis, with detailed
    charts and extra notes to illustrate key points.
    While this may not lie under the umbrella of
    books about blockchain, it will perfectly fit
    your needs if you are a trader interested in
    Altcoins with small market capitalizations. Even
    so, it is important to mention here that with any
    work that claims to provide insider information
    on investing, it is necessary to verify these
    claims with your own external research.

Last but not least
  • In the end, we hope that this list of books on
    blockchain investments starts you on your journey
    to being a confident Crypto investor. Remember
    that doing your own research does not stop here.
    This is only the beginning.
  • If you find any Crypto or Blockchain book that
    you think deserves to be here, let us know.
