Hello there, i hope my Bitcointalk family is doing great.
I have been here around for few months only trading, completing airdrops and bounties but never bothered to about blockchain which i lately found to be the most important part. Finally i have decided to learn it from the core so that i can have an overview of what blockchain actually is and how it works. I'm aware that there are thousand of threads in this forum as well as over the internet regarding it but as BTT has the most former members who are petty expert in it i want to know more from them. I have seen in many thread regarding blockchain but most does not have information about newbies. I want to learn from the very beginning and increase my knowledge time to time.
Can anyone suggest me a book (online maybe pdf) or any website like tutorialpoints, where i can start my blockchain journey from the very beginner level.

I would like to thank in advance for helping me out.

I suggest that for now on you ignore all Airdrops.

Start reading bitcoin whitepaper

https://bitcoin.org/bitcoin.pdf

Then read Mastering Bitcoin, by Andreas Antonopoulos

You can read the full book here for free.

Hi, darkie199!

It is only inspiring that you are committed to learning about blockchain.

I understand how hard it can be to learn about such complex topics, as cryptography, consensus algorithms, and mining. I've been there.
I know the amount of information available online is overwhelming.

This is why we at Finrazor have prepared a series of educational articles available at: https://finrazor.com/news/category/essential.

You can start at the very beginning with What is Bitcoin,
and then go on to learn about how bitcoin transaction work
and what soft and hard forks are.

As for books, I would recommend Melanie Swan's Blockchain: A Blueprint for a New Economy. It helped a lot when I was starting out.

Thank you for your interest! Have a good day!

All data on the Internet is easily copied. As we know, Bitcoin is just one application of Blockchain technology, meaning that each Bitcoin transaction is just one file.
Normally, when dealing online, we will need a third party that we trust (eg, intermediary, shipping company, bank ...) with a database set to verify the transaction to prevent fraud when the crooks use this file repeatedly.
Blockchain technology solves this problem without the need for a reliable third party.
You can refer to other Blockchain forums for more information.

The easiest way to think about Blockchain is to imagine it as a hierarchical database that stores information in blocks of information that are interconnected by encryption and expanding over time. Each information block contains information about the time it was created and linked to the previous block, including a time code and transaction data. It's like a ledger.
But the special feature of Blockchain is that this database is distributed decentralized on the internet. That means that this database is spread around the world, owned by all computers in the peer network.
There is no central server hosting this database, no one has control over this database. Once the data is written to this ledger, no one can delete it, or change it. It can not be hacked. Blockchain helps participants reach consensus on information without going through a third party.

I find quite a lot of people defining Blockchain, in a simple way I understand Blockchain is a way to store information at a more advanced level. Non-proprietary storage.

There is a post in this forum where it explains how the blockchain works(https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4557581.0). I think it is a simple way to start learning how it works especially I am a newbie who are new to the concept of cryptocurrency and blockchain tecnology even though I have heard it many times before.

You should read the book: The Blockchain Revolution.
As you read this book, you will understand a lot of issues related to Blockchain. The problem is very basic and simple, but when you go into details, you will find that your understanding of Blockchain is too small. The book will give you a better understanding of the protocol Blockchain is aiming for, as well as a strong demonstration of its ability to handle transactions, transparency and security.

If you are good at connecting dots by gaining chunks of knowledge then "medium" is a great source to learn about blockchain.

Hello darkie199, is inspiring that you want to learn something new about the area you spend your free time. Everything stands on the blockchain of the project, like airdrops, trades and bounties. If you want to be educated in this area,
i recommend you some resources from where to get information -
Blockchain (Ultimate Guide to Understanding Blockchain, Bitcoin, Cryptocurrencies, Smart ...) - Mark Gates
Blockchain Basics (A Non-Technical Introduction in 25 Steps) - Daniel Drescher
Blockchain - Melanie Swan
If you are looking for pdf materials on the Internet, there is very much but you have to choose yourself which pdf will be useful for you, just search /Blockchain pdf/.

“Blockchain: The blockchain for beginners guide to blockchain technology and leveraging blockchain programming”, by Josh Thompsons:
If you are a beginner to this technology, then this is the book for you. The author provides the historical context behind the innovation of blockchain and explains how it may fundamentally alter our lives in the future. A technical understanding of each component of blockchain is provided in this book, and the reader should be able to create her own blockchain, and build apps. The book is easy to read and has a practical style.

I am also new and the term Blockchain is very strange to me until my friend guides me to read the information in Bitcointalk. I searched on the Internet then learned more about the types of cryptocurrency. Do not forget to learn the knowledge from the go ahead.

Blockchain services for improving the tech

Before you get started…
Remember that a blockchain is an immutable, sequential chain of records called Blocks. They can contain transactions, files or any data you like, really. But the important thing is that they’re chained together using hashes.Who is this guide aimed at? You should be comfy reading and writing some basic Python, as well as have some understanding of how HTTP requests work, since we’ll be talking to our Blockchain over HTTP.

What do I need? Make sure that Python 3.6+ (along with pip) is installed. You’ll also need to install Flask and the wonderful Requests library:

 pip install Flask==0.12.2 requests==2.18.4
Oh, you’ll also need an HTTP Client, like Postman or cURL. But anything will do.

You should read "Blockchain: A Detailed Plan for a New Economy," by Melanie Swan
This book provides a comprehensive understanding of how blockchain works. The author is the founder of Blockchain Research Institute. The book goes beyond bitcoin and electronic money, even beyond smart contracts, and explains how blockchain can bring important critical disruptions such as Mainframe, PC, Internet or mobile/communal. Assembly. The book describes the potential of blockchain not only in the financial sector but also, for example, other industries and governments. It covers the concept of the blockchain, the features of technology and functions. The book creates a blockchain use case to automatically track all digital efforts, for example: create an anti-censorship organization, build a digital anti-forgery archive for any What things can create value, and open up more efficient and cheaper services.
