As I’ve been educating estate planning attorneys, trustees, financial advisors, and other non-tech professionals on the essence of blockchain technology, the role of cryptocurrency, and the important issues concerning succession planning, tax reduction, and asset protection of cryptoassets, I’m frequently asked for a list of nontechnical resources folks should consider as they seek to learn more. In that spirit I have compiled a short list of resources that have helped me in my learning. I have no affiliation with any of these providers and am not compensated in any way by them. I just find them to be useful and I think you might also.

The original Bitcoin white paper: Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System, by Satoshi Nakamoto. This is the single document that got bitcoin started.

Joint Economic Committee Report (excerpt containing findings regarding cryptocurrency in Congressional report)


Videos & Documentaries (all available for free online):


Other useful web resources:

There are countless others you’ll find along the way. Many are excellent, many more may not be. This is not intended to be a comprehensive list by any means, but I have personally found these to be good resources for perspective on the blockchain tech industry and the emerging cryptocurrency economy.
