The easiest way to start your crypto journey is to watch a few documentaries on Bitcoin.  They very quickly give you an insight into the problems that crypto is trying to solve, how the movement started, who the key players are, how it all works and where it could all be going.  

If your interest in crypto is not piqued after watching one of the CryptoWales recommended documentaries then crypto is not for you:

The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin (2014)
Sorry you will have to pay, but it is one of our favourites so worth it.

Another great resource to learn more about the specifics of Bitcoin and crypto are the videos of the Princeton University lectures.  Just click on the subject you want to learn more about.

Watching videos is great research and to get an even deeper understanding on what is going on then check out our reading suggestions.
