Important Resources In Crypto

Getting started

As is the case with every subject, there are people who will give your more for your time than others, and often those people are hidden behind plenty of insignificant people. This is a simple list of people in the public sphere and why they would be a good place to get information about Cryptocurrencies and Bitcoin

Andreas M. Antonopoulos

A little bit about him

Andreas Antonopoulos is one of the most significant individuals in the cryptosphere and has spent years of his life and 100's of hours of his time to educate people about Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies. He has most definitely positioned himself as being the 'go to' person when it comes to understanding the technology and how he feels it would impact your life specifically and the lives of everyone on planet earth. He is definitely a visionary in that he focuses on what the technology can do for you and humanity, and never speaks about price predictions, technical analysis or anything related to 'making fiat money from crypto'.

Considerations

The only consideration to take is that, not being muslim himself, he does not speak for Islam or propagate Islamic views. He focuses on the technology and what it can do generically. I met him personally and he demonstrated the utmost respect for me as a Muslim and even gave me salaams. A very respectable man.

Abdul Ashik

A little bit about him

Brother Ashik has been involved in the Cryptospace for a great number of years and has a deep knowledge of both Bitcoin, cryptocurrency, blockchain and also has a good knowledge of Islamic principles. He has been engaged in educating people about Blockchain and Bitcoin for many years and has recently established a charity for that purpose. He was even invited to discuss this technology with Shaykh Haitham al Haddaad in 2017 along with other important members of this industry.

Considerations

He is a very humble individual and which may give the impression that he knows less than he actually does. His knowledge is very intense and will often have the necessary information for you upon request.

Jameson Lopp

A little bit about him

Jameson Lopp is one of the more deeper technical individuals out there who focuses primarily with Bitcoin. He has a website where he writes blog posts on various topics related to Bitcoin and Crypto and almost always delivers genuine nuggets about the Bitcoin network and what it can do for humanity. He has also published different experiments on how to store your private keys securely, and a long array of other things. He does not indulge in discussion about Bitcoins price predictions and focuses on why you should have Bitcoin in areas besides making more Fiat. Definitely one to follow on twitter if you want decent 'Bitcoin Daily Reminders'.

Considerations

Not being a Muslim, one cannot expect for him to share Muslim views in everything. But that does not mean that his view regarding Bitcoin are not valid or sound from a practical and technical perspective.
