I’m posting it because if you haven’t yet I think it’s important that everyone does. Save it, when you have time take a read. A lot of people jump into crypto only looking at charts, price and market cap. I think it’s important to understand the origins of it, not in a biblical sense like some people take it. Satoshi was a revolutionary thinker that changed the world forever. The philosophy behind crypto is subtly embedded in the bitcoin white paper and I get the sense that sometimes the true meaning behind crypto is forgotten, the philosophical value.
While we are on the topic the Ethereum white paper is too long and technical to be considered a must read. You can get the understanding by reading the introduction, bitcoin comparison section and the conclusion. I will post that as well for comparison. https://ethereum.org/en/whitepape
If you’ve gotten through those and you’re an avid reader I have a few books I would recommend. Bitcoin Billionaires
was a very good book. Highly entertaining while also helpful to understand the story of Bitcoin. While told focused around the Winklevii who better to be the focus than the biggest whales in the game. Everything from Facebook, Mt Gox, parties, court rooms, prison and a success story for not only the Winklevoss twins but the story of the success of Bitcoin. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/41433284-bitcoin-billionaires The Infinite Machine
is sort of the equivalent for Ethereum. It is all about the origin story of Ethereum from birth to boom including the known characters and some connections maybe unknown to some. I would actually suggest reading this instead of the white paper. Camila Russo does a great job breaking it down in a way that can be understood. I also follow her Defi podcast The Defiant
Mastering Monero, opinions of the coin aside, is very much worth reading. You will have a better understanding of privacy as a whole, not just privacy of Monero. From banking system explanations to dark web usage, or lack thereof, is covered in the book. It’s written by Monero users for Monero users and non Monero users. The Bitcoin mentions in the book aren’t FUD but instead written factually. It’s an easy enough read and it’s also available free or by donation. I donated for it but the PDF isn’t hard to get to. https://masteringmonero.com/free-download.html
For the futurists, the dreamers and the hopefuls there is Blockchain 2025
written by Jared Tate. He speaks his mind and is honest as the sky is blue. He wrote the book not to promote DGB but moreso to discuss the role of blockchain beyond just cryptocurrency in the future. I’ve only just started it but so far it’s a good read. https://blockchain2035.com/
Another one, not crypto related, is The Wolf Of Wall Street
by Jordan Belfort. “People don’t buy stock; it gets sold to them. Don’t ever forget that.” I also always reflect on the Mathew McConaughey movie monologue
when I read the expert traders or see them on YouTube. It’s valuable to understand how the sharks in the system feed on the minnows.
Do you have any reading suggestions?
Hi there new ETH investor and/or new /ethtrader
community member! Glad to have you aboard. We are a pretty lively bunch around here; inside jokes, memes, and jargon run rampant.
I figured I would create a sort of glossary to help you figure out what the actual fuck we are talking about.
BGD: Big green dildo, as in a big green candlestick on the price chart.
BTFD: Buy the fucking dip.
ATH: All time high, the highest price of a thing ever, 1400ish for ETH.
FOMO: Fear Of Missing Out, the urge to jump on the bandwagon when prices rise.
DeFi: Decentralized Finance, MakerDAO and Dharma and stuff. Loans basically.
CDP: Collateralized debt position. A DeFi thing.
FUD: FeaUncertainty/Doubt, negative sentiments spread in order to drive down prices.
MEW: My Ether Wallet, a website to make and interact with wallets.
TA: Technical analysis, predicting the future of the price based on the past.
2FA: 2 factor authentication, its a security thing, a second password of sorts.
ERC20: The standard for tokens built on ETH.
POS: Not piece of shit, or point of sale. Proof of stake, the new consensus mechanism coming to ETH soon™.
ICO: Initial coin offering, the birth of a new crypto, usually an ERC20. Like an IPO.
IEO: Initial exchange offering, like an ICO, but typically a bit more scammy.
, more on him later...
BAT: Not the animal, Basic Attention Token
OMG: Not oh my god, well sometimes oh my god, but mostly OmiseGo
. Pronounced OH-ME-SAY GO btw.
REP: There is too many tokens to list here, just google it you will figure it out.
DYOR: Do your own research. People want to steal your money. Make sure you know what you are buying.
LN: A silly bitcoin thing.
GDAX: The old name for Coinbase Pro.
Bull: Confident the price will go up.
Confidant: misspelling of confident from e_z_p_z_
. More on him later...
Bear: Confident the price will go down.
Cuecomber: Cucumber, another EZPZ classic. Can be used as in cool as a cucumber, or as in BGD (see? now you know what BGD means, damn this guide is helpful.)
The ratio: The trading pair ETH:BTC.
The flippening: The ETH marketcap being bigger than the BTC marketcap. Coming soon™ .
Soon™: The release date for everything crypto related.
Donuts: Like reddit karma but /ethtrader
specific, and infinitely more valuable. Legend has it that if you get 10 million donuts Vitalik sends you 10 ETH for every 1 ETH you send him. The name comes from cyounessi
's post here.
Moon: The price where you can buy a lambo.
Mooning: The price increasing rapidly. Maybe exposed butts depending on how you choose to spend your money.
Moonboy: A hopelessly optimistic/greedy person.
$13: The price was stuck here for a long time. Dark days for /ethtrader
$420: The top of the bull market before last. Also weed dude hehehe.
$300: The price was stuck here for what seemed like forever. Oh how easy we had it back then...
$324: EZPZ's number. More on him later...
$80: The bottom of the previous bear market. We will definitely never see this price again.
HODL: Hold. From here.
SODL: Sold, same as above.
BUIDL: Build, you get the pattern.
Golden cross: Moving averages of prices crossing. A TA thing.
FIAT: Not the car. Fiat Money.
USD, euros, pounds and so on.
Sharding: An ETH scaling method. Don't make sharting jokes, they anger Vitalik.
Ramen: The meal of choice when the price goes down.
Just... Don't ask...
Weeks not months: In reference to Joe Lubin's prediction for ETH futures coming out. It has been 75 weeks since he said this.
The Winklevii: Founders of Gemini Exchange, the facebook guys.
Updoot the diddly: Or anything with that vague collection of letters, Upvote the daily discussion.
JT's fire pit: jtnichol
posts pictures of food he is cooking in his backyard fire pit. Those posts make you hungry.
The DAO: Tumultuous times in ethereum history to say the least.Further reading here.
: The founder of Ethereum. We really really
Joe Lubin: Co-founder of Ethereum, founder of ConsenSys. Memes aside. We like him.
: Creator of /ethtrader
. Overall good guy.
: A mod of /ethtrader
. Overall sweetheart.
The rest of the mods: Too many to list. It's a great group of people. They won't give you any trouble if you aren't being a dick.
: DC is a smart guy with good opinions. We really like him.
the undisputed meme champion. A genuine crazy person. Made a bad sell on the way up, and wrote lengthy posts about how ETH was going back to $324 multiple times a day for months, often times with terrible spelling and grammar. When ETH did hit 324 he became something like a local hero. He is the heel of /ethtrader
and we all love to hate him.
: A fool, not to be trusted.
: He used to regularly post TA. Sometimes he was right, sometimes he was wrong. The crucial thing was that he was memeable. He started to get a bit of an ego going, and was deleting his posts that were wrong, and keeping the correct ones. He recently made a return to /ethtrader
and made a post that ETH was going to moon on a certain day and it ended up not being correct, which was just fuel on the meme fire. He goes by etherdamus
now and runs a private TA group which has a fee to join.
: He posts a haiku in the daily every day until we flippen bitcoin. Reading a nice haiku is a pleasant way to start your morning.
Everyone else: Well you will see them around and catch the vibe. There are just too many lovable and hateable people to list.
But the Winklevii have a second act in their enormous Bitcoin investment. While they were shut out of creating a Bitcoin exchange traded fund (ETF) , their 2013 investment in $11 million worth of Bitcoin (which reportedly amounted to one percent of all the currency in circulation) looks pretty rosy now. That same amount is worth approximately 21 times as much now, putting their total at about ... Bitcoin is going to overtake gold and become the world's leading safe haven asset. If you follow the line of thinking put forward by the Winklevii (that is Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss) then you believe it is only a matter of time before bitcoin is worth roughly $500k per coin.

Albeit, Winklevii already have sizeable holdings in Bitcoin, this move, the new Winklevoss Bitcoin Trust, could send Bitcoin from entrepreneurs like themselves to retail investors… anyone with a brokerage account. “The trust brings Bitcoin to Main Street and mainstream investors to Bitcoin,” said Tyler Winklevoss, co-founder of Math-Based Asset Services, which would operate the proposed ...
