Crypto experts / Gurus


We have many people talking about crypto and making lot of claims on twitter and else were. But, there is no reason to believe and take what they says as it is . Can we list down here, who we all agree and believe to be the real experts and can be taken for their word as a final authority, and may be list down the reasons to take them as authority. Apart from the standard ones like Nick Szabo, Naval . Also, it would be great if we can categorize them in the area of expertise.

I would like people to read “Internet of Money”. Just opens one up for all possibilities of Bitcoin and helps us take a macro view. Especially people here - we love crypto :slight_smile:


@rathinav7 Thanks for starting this thread! I’d like to suggest that when people add to this section, please add links that are considered the individual’s seminal works or contributions, or even just ones that they (the community member) especially like. I’d love to read more articles that are recommended by the TruStory community.
(like @ankit did above…just saw that :slight_smile: )


Thanks @Pam ! “Internet of Money” is interestingly a collection of all talks Andreas has given on various stages. It shows how his thought has been evolving from 2014 onwards. Can learn a lot from that.
