the orange pill theory?

(*) to orangepill: (verb) / tu’ ȯr-inj-‘pil/ : the act of explaining bitcoin in such a way that a pre-coiner gets it, and becomes a bitcoiner!
"Taking the Orange Pill" is when a person has become aware of the existence of Bitcoin, and then spends countless hours trying to disprove the Bitcoin thesis

  2. "The Bitcoin Standard: The Decentralized Alternative to Central Banking" by Saifedean Ammous
  3. "The Book of Satoshi: The Collected Writings of Bitcoin Creator" by Phil Champagne

if you're more of a listener, listen to the Bitcoin Fundamentals episodes by "The Investor's Podcast Network", here's a spotify playlist for you, updated every wednesday

lookintobitcoin.com is also good place to start, both for learning but also starting with the technical analysis of the long term charts that really matter and how to read them

if you want to skip all the boring part of learning and get directly to the charts, start with these youtube channels: Bob Loukas & Benjamin Cowen
