New? Start here...

If you're new to this space, here is a great place to get started...

1. If you haven't not yet, you have to read Satoshi Nakamoto's Bitcoin white paper:

It is a must read.

2. Understand what Ethereum actually is, as it is critical to understand the differences between Bitcoin and Ethereum whether you invest or not.

This video should show you that the people working on this are doing a lot more than giving birth to a currency. For Ethereum, that is a corollary - not the purpose. If intrigued by this, start reading and listening to Ethereum inventor Vitalik Buterin. 

3. Most importantly, you need to at least scratch the surface of Crypto-Economics.

It is not until you get to this point that you will realize what it really going on in this space.

(Note: Vitalik gives the hour long talk re crypto-economics embedded in this story. After getting past the fact that he is just one of the smartest people on the planet, listen to the problems he is actually solving.)
