Educational resources about Bitcoin

The education committee of the Bitcoin Foundation is collecting links related to educational materials about Bitcoin. The references below contains the articles, videos and documents that the committee has collected so far.

If you wish to submit your choice of an existing educational material about Bitcoin, use this form.

  1. Your response will be collected and reviewed by the members of the committee. To see the members of the committee, visit this link.

  2. If at least one member of the committee adds the link to the resource database that the committee maintains, it will appear on the committees public Zotero library, that can be seen here.

  3. The committee members cannot guarantee that they will be able to review all submitted links, so please consider this form a way to help the committee discover good educational materials about Bitcoin, and not an official communication with the committee or the Bitcoin Foundation.

  4. For more information, contact the Chair of the committee, Colin Gallagher, via XMPP at coling.bitcoinfoundation@dukgo.com.
