Hello there, the BitcoinTalk crowd!


First of all, let me introduce myself.
My name is Iaroslav, and I am from Moldova. Yet, I study at the Computer Science faculty in Romania.  Smiley

Recently I've chosen "creating a cryptocurrency" as the subject for my Bachelor project (which I've got to present in a year's time).
Roll Eyes

Now, in order to do this properly (and by "properly" I don't mean just working on a "satisfying" project, but, rather, becoming really knowledgeable about the domain, and, ultimately, contributing to its further development/improvement), I've decided to scrutinize the cryptocurrencies inside and out. Cool

I'd be really grateful to you if you provided me with the list of the most relevant/interesting/technical (in your opinion) books, articles and whatnot about Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, in general, and any other related subject.


Really looking forward to your help,
Iaroslav.

Do you really want to create a cryptocurrency,or you are just asking for information about cryptos?
Do you think that creating a cryptocurrency is easy?
Now,about your request.I assume that you have a working PC and internet,which means you can search in google and youtube.
I think that people who make threads saying "give me all the info (books,articles,etc...)about this subject" are just lazy and don`t want to search google and youtube.
Anyway, i wish you good luck with your bachelor project OP. Smiley

Well, of course, I want to create a cryptocurrency, as that's one of the main goal of this project. Smiley

No, I don't think that this is super easy, and that's why I've started working on the project ahead of time.

Now, I did search the web in regards to all this (and picked several books for me to read), but figured out that it'd be a good idea to also reach out to the people on this forum, as they could help me out with some "additional" information/advice, based on their experience.  Wink
