CryptoNet: Bibliography, Recommended Resources

This is a crypto bibliography of links and resources used to help me put together this website and blog posts.  I add to it quite often so it’s always good to check back for new stuff once in a while. We have a wide range of links to checkout. All are regularly checked.

Book: The Bitcoin Standard (by Dr. Saifedean Ammous) is the essential resource for a clear understanding of the rise of the Internet’s decentralised, apolitical, free-market alternative to central banks.  It is the de facto learning resource for all those interested in rise and rise of Bitcoin. 

This Bibliography was written to support the Cryptocurrency and Blockchain awareness programme,
How to Crypto.

Website & Report: The excellent website is truly an excellent one stop shop for news and info about crypto and the digital assets industry. The 2022 Massari Report is a ‘must read’ (it’s usually published each December – it’s also quite entertaining and well written (not too stuffy)). There are usually also some excellent predictions for crypto growth which are carefully reasoned.

TV Documentary: Cryptopia: Bitcoin, Blockchains and the Future of the Internet. Five years after his first documentary, award-winning producer/director Torsten Hoffmann revisits Bitcoin and sets out to explore the evolution of the blockchain industry and its new promise. It’s available on Prime (Amazon), Vimeo and YouTube (linked) but beware, the youtube video has adverts every few seconds and is almost unwatchable because of it.

Youtube Channel: Crypto Zombie.  Not a bitcoin maximalist but pretty close,  Researches and analyses crypto news from many different sources and consolidates them into an entertaining and interesting 15-20 minute segment 4-5 times per week.  I find myself checking this YouTube channel more than any other for new content.

YouTube Channel: This is a ‘Learn to Trade Crypto’ channel. MoneyZG is dedicated to useful finance information and education. Trading tutorials, how-to videos, useful financial content and information focusing on Cryptocurrency. He used to be a broker on the London Stock Exchange but now bow down to the YouTube gods. 

PDF Report: Central Bank Digital Currency: opportunities, challenges and design A report by the Bank of England on the opportunities for the populace that uses a CBDC.  A must read! 

PDF Report: Central bank digital currencies for cross-border payments A report by the World Bank Group and International Monetary Fund (July 2021. A well balanced explanation of how CBDCs could benefit cross border money transfers and a little of how they could be difficult to implement. (Downloadable from – co-author)

PDF: Bitcoin Whitepaper: The Original crypto whitepaper – A thing of beauty! This is the original whitepaper as it appeared in 2009.

Book: Bitcoin Billionaires by Ben Mezrich. This is the true story of the Winklevoss Twins after their Facebook stock settlement with Mark Zuckerberg and how they became the first Bitcoin billionaires.  This is actually a fun read!

Website: Unstoppable Domains: This is an Internet Domain registration website.  Unstoppable Domains utilises the benefits of Blockchain technology to allow you to register a domain as an NFT.  It’s then yours for life!  The .wallet domain allows you to register your public keys with the domain so that payments can be received by sending them to the .wallet address.  This is better than the rather convoluted crypto addresses which can be as long as 40 characters (e.g. if you wanted to send  me a bitcoin tip, you could simply send to tonyfawl.wallet – try it and see  🙂 )  

Exchange: The big daddy of Central Cryptocurrency Exchanges with $2Billion volume, 1.400.000 transactions per second and nearly 700 cryptocurrencies that can be traded.  The interface may be a little complicated, but this is a reliable exchange.

Exchange: The new kid on the block and determines to take over as the best. has become popular not least because of the excellent credit/debit card service which allows you to load up your debit card with crypto and spend it as normal.

Hardware Wallet: Ledger Nano X: Secure, buy, exchange, grow your crypto and manage your NFTs with our new Bluetooth-enabled hardware wallet. All your digital assets – secured in one place. For security reasons, I personally would only buy this directly from the manufacturer.

Software Wallet: Metamask: Available as a browser extension and as a mobile app, MetaMask equips you with a key vault, secure login, token wallet, and token exchange—everything you need to manage your digital assets.

Website: The oft quoted Coinmarketcap is a well known resource in the cryptocurrency community for providing statistical information on just about all the crypto currencies that there are!  They also have lots of other resources raging from a Portfolio Tracker and Watchlist to the most popular NFT collections.
