Good thing I am also a big fan of Benjamin Graham and traditional, value investing. I read the Intelligent Investor (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/106835.The_Intelligent_Investor) every other year. Dollar cost averaging it is. I allocate an additional 1% of my investment portfolio to $BTC every month and try to do it at local lows (around -10% below previous low).
The What Bitcoin Did Podcast is one I discovered recently. Very different style to the others, British accent is refreshing, some of the guests I have listened to before but I am happy to hear Bitcoin devs (@lopp especially) and other great guests anywhere I can find them. I haven't listened to every episode though. Skipped Ver and Wright.
I need more content to top up my learning so I'm trying podcasts and implementing podfasting managing to listen to them at 1.5x. Laura Shin's Unchained is the first one I come across. Some good episodes and most of them relevant to Bitcoin (not that many nowadays, but I still subscribe and listen). Unconfirmed as well.
While I do basic hygiene right (not going anywhere near BCash, Ripple or IOTA), the lure of other alt-coins is still big. I try to keep on top of some of them, I research them (or flag them for research a bit later), but there's so much going on. A few times that I went in depth it obviously was either a scam (BTCP anyone?) or an interesting project with an unnecessary token on top (0x). No, it's too much.
More Twitter. I now understand there are different types of crypto Twitter users. I start putting them into lists. I quickly manage to curate a list that has no traders, no companies and I good signal / noise ratio. I spend 2-3 hours a day (which is more than the free time I normally have, so cutting down on sleep) on Twitter and linked posts (mostly Medium). I really enjoy it. Learning, thinking, discovering.
There is an alt-coin (hadn't clocked it's a shit-coin one) party going on in terms of trading though and I decide to get exposed to it and diversify. Serious coins though. $LTC, $ZEC, and $ETH and $BTC from before. Around 2% of investment portolio is now on crypto-assets. I'm feeling secure and exposed to the positive potential now, I can go back to learning.
The Internet of Money (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/31869077-the-internet-of-money) is next, read it pretty much at the flight home after New Year's. By that point $BTC had started declining. I am not phased though. I can picture the future and I understand the fundamental importance of what Bitcoin is about.
I's time for New Year's holidays, I tend to alternate between fiction and non-fiction in my book reading and it's fiction time. I am a Neal Stephenson fan (duh!) and have (but not read) Cryptonomicon (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/816.Cryptonomicon) around. Great timing for the break. Now I get it even more.
Crypto Twitter, lots of notes and researching trading/investment platforms were next. I needed to have exposure to this. By this point, it was December and the prices were rocketing all over the place. A bit of FOMO kicked in. Opened a few accounts, started using GDAX, bought ETH first and a bit of BTC later.
It was November 2017 and I also happened to be reading "Capitalism and Freedom" (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/51877.Capitalism_and_Freedom) at that time. Great timing as it enabled me to understand Bitcoin on a more fundamental level than the price craziness of that time.
