If you’ve been paying attention to the news lately, bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have been making some headlines. If you’re like me, it was hard to understand what all the fuss is about. I decided to document my research and share the podcasts, videos, and lessons I learn along the way! There are many ways of learning about this new technology. You can start here with 3 Bitcoin YouTube channels and Podcasts to start your journey into Bitcoin.
Make sure the go through the complete Bitcoin dictionary, where you’ll find explanations to many additional Bitcoin terms.
The Investors Podcast Network – Bitcoin Fundamentals
The We Study Billionaire podcast is one of my favorite podcasts. Above all, if investing in general, and bitcoin investments specifically, interests you, I recommend it! The podcast’s core is value investing, and they’ve recently been discussing bitcoin investments on their show. In each episode, they discuss a different topic like tech, philosophy, or economics.
Preston Pysh, the co-host, brings influencers and industry leaders from all reams and discusses the topics transparently and fascinatingly. Their Bitcoin Fundamentals Series has some of the best podcast episodes I’ve listened to.
When I first started to dive into bitcoin, I listened to all their bitcoin episodes, and I got completely hooked. I can only recommend you take time and start listening to it. Each episode will open your mind to new directions.

MIT 15.S12 Blockchain and Money with Gary Gensler
One of the amazing things about MIT, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is that it offers high education courses for everyone on YouTube. This course, lectured by Gary Gensler, the head of the SEC, is a true must for any bitcoin enthusiast. Gary has decades of experience in finance and shares his thoughts about bitcoin and blockchain.
In this course, Gary takes an interdisciplinary approach to understand both the technical aspects of Bitcoin (and other cryptocurrencies) and its potential societal impacts. You’ll learn about cryptography, economics, game theory, law, and regulation, all from the experience of a banker and regulator! The course covers the basics and other less obvious aspects of Bitcoin, such as mining blocks for rewards, how transactions are verified, the history of finance, and much more. You’ll also learn about blockchain technology,
I highly recommend taking the time, and at least going through the first lectures.
You can watch the whole course on MIT YouTube Channel right here!
