Bitcoin Can Be a Minefield

Hello, my name is Thomas and if you’re interested in investing in Bitcoin I applaud your decision because bitcoin has gone from $198 to over $1800 in the last few years.

It has outperformed everything else and is still at less than 1% of its potential.

Bitcoin is not for everyone but if you’re interested in learning more you are in the right place.

I offer bitcoin consulting. Contact me via Twitter @ThomasAMeyers or comment below.

How do I become a bitcoin/blockchain expert?

If you would like to become a Bitcoin and Blockchain expert, follow these steps:

Read up on Bitcoin and Blockchain Wikipedia articles
Read a book on Bitcoin and Blockchain; I highly recommend “Digital Gold: Bitcoin and the Inside Story of the Misfits and Millionaires Trying to Reinvent Money” by Nathaniel Popper
Invest in Bitcoin and altcoins and actively follow them[1]
Every month, attend at least one local meetup or event on Bitcoin and Blockchain in your area and network with the community
Join a Bitcoin/Blockchain related project
If you’re looking to become a technical expert, then definitely look at the open source code and become a contributor
If you’re looking to be a non-technical expert, become a writer or blogger on Bitcoin and Blockchain related topics
Attend large annual Bitcoin and Blockchain conferences
Repeat steps 3 through 6 for at least two years, and then you will be credible enough to be a Bitcoin and Blockchain expert.
Once an expert, you could do the following:
Start your own Bitcoin or Blockchain related startup
Start a consulting or software company on Bitcoin or Blockchain
Write a book on Bitcoin or Blockchain
