Our goal here at Blockonomi from the very start has been to provide indepth knowledge about Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies, over the years we have strived to cover as many different topics as possible aimed at complete beginners in these fields up to more advanced topics. Our education section now holds over 180 articles on topics such as wallets, consensus protocols, technological advances and more.
We realize that some people prefer to have information presented to them in a more concise readable form, and eBooks provide the perfect delivery mechanism for this.
Therefore we have decided to start a growing library of books on different blockchain topics and make them available to our readers completely free and today we’re proud to announce the launch of our first 3 books.
You can read more about them below, or simply join our newsletter list to get your copies. Do not worry, we will not constantly spam you with emails, we simply send one email each week on a Friday with a roundup of the week’s Crypto News and topics discussed here on Blockonomi.
As always, we’d love to hear your feedback.
