Learned about Bitcoin recently, I hope it's not too late.

I am a computer/semiconductor professional (FPGA,ASIC,SoC), so have some background on implementing algorithms similar to Sha256. Also I am fascinated by the idea, I think it will have huge social and economic impact, which most politicians, economists, philosophers, bankers haven't realized yet.

Hi all,

new to BTC but I really like the philosophy. I have yet to purchase any but I'm considering exchanging silver for BTC.

The biggest thing holding me back is that I am not from a computer programming background. I do not have the foundational knowledge to understand much of the things that can keep me and my BTC safe.

I do not know how to keep a wallet safe whether it be a wallet stored and backed up on disc/usb/paper or online.

I do not know how to conduct transactions in a manner that will not expose my IP address etc. (if this is even a concern)

I do not know how to keep my machine clean and free of malware/loggers etc other then having avast installed and running on my machine, I do not know if this is even enough or worthwhile.

I consider myself an average and possibly above average layperson that can use a computer.

I think BTC has a huge potential in revolutionizing commerce/civil liberties but perhaps the greatest impediment to it's adoption is the things I have mentioned.... along with an entrenched/lack of knowledge of monetary systems and economics.

Each day I know more then the last but my knowledge is so fragmented that I am having trouble putting it together. I have been doing lots of reading (here and the rest of the web)trying to understand whats needed to keep me safe but there seems to be a lack of a good repository of  information understandable to beginners/non tech savvy. Whenever I search for information I find something that seems to discuss it and it either gets sidetracked or discussed at a level beyond my understanding....

trying not to get discouraged..

Thanks

New to bitcoin, came across it on TOR and piqued my curiosity. The more I learn the more I like it. Looking forward to see where it goes.
