I went to a wedding yesterday. My wife was in the bridal party so I had a bunch of time to kill in the morning. Went to a coffee shop to read and write a bit. I joked with my wife that I was radicalizing myself into NFTs.
In any case, these three books seem to give a nice overview of various topics related to crypto.
The Sovereign Individual — This is one of those books that is a reminder that I’m not smart. I don’t know how the world actually works so it’s great that giga brains share their knowledge for others in books like this. It was published heading into the year 2000, with predictions about how microprocessors change violence dynamics which change, well, everything in the world.
Blockchain or Revolution — So far, this would be the book I recommend if someone wants to learn about different aspects of the blockchain. It explains core technical concepts in an approachable manner. And also explains the current financial system and how blockchain could disrupt it.
21 Lessons — One of the best curious novice books I’ve read. Gigi explains different aspects of Bitcoin in an entertaining way. He’s turned into a true believer and explains why. There’s a lot more to it than just buy, hodl, and get rich.
