Some people have asked if this channel accepts contributions in cryptocurrency form. As a matter of fact, it does:

Here are a few other resources I’d recommend:

Original Bitcoin paper: https://bitcoin.org/bitcoin.pdf

Block explorer: https://blockexplorer.com/

(This is particularly good for understanding the details of what transactions look like, which is something this video did not cover)

Animations largely made using manim, a scrappy open source python library. https://github.com/3b1b/manim

If you want to check it out, I feel compelled to warn you that it’s not the most well-documented tool, and has many other quirks you might expect in a library someone wrote with only their own use in mind.

If you want to contribute translated subtitles or to help review those that have already been made by others and need approval, you can click the gear icon in the video and go to subtitles/cc, then “add subtitles/cc”. I really appreciate those who do this, as it helps make the lessons accessible to more people.

3blue1brown is a channel about animating math, in all senses of the word animate. And you know the drill with YouTube, if you want to stay posted on new videos, subscribe, and click the bell to receive notifications (if you’re into that).

Note: If you see comments here about investing strategies or brokers, they are scams. Videos about cryptocurrencies, evidently including ones that are just about the underlying technology/math, are hotbeds for attracting nefarious actors preying on the impressionable. If you see these, you can help by "reporting" the comment.

My only experience is with Coinbase, and I found them to be comically inept, greedy, and very unbusinesslike in their practices. Also, much of the rationale for cryptocurrencies (that they are private, outside the monetary and tax systems, etc) all turns out to be FALSE.
