The easiest way to start your Bitcoin journey is to watch a few documentaries.  They very quickly give you an insight into the problems that Bitcoin is trying to solve, how the movement started, who the key players are, how it all works and where it could all be going.  

If your interest in Bitcoin is not piqued after watching one of our recommended documentaries then Bitcoin is probably not for you:

The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin (2014)
Sorry you will have to pay, but it is one of our favourites so worth it.

Another great resource to learn more about the specifics of Bitcoin are the videos of the Princeton University lectures.  Just click on the subject you want to learn more about.

Watching videos is great research and to get an even deeper understanding on what is going on then check out our reading suggestions.
