We are going to organize this as a “checklist”, steps to continue learning, little by little and to reach the status of “bitcoiner”.
For a newbie, what I recommend, are these steps:
- Read a lot about BTC, to understand what really is. There’s a lot of misunderstanding out there.
- Watch this amazing playlist of documentaries, that explain and make you to understand the terms and be comfortable with the world of Bitcoin.
- Learn how to use it. Open a wallet, make some transactions (txs) to see how it work, small amounts, baby steps.
- Start buying from ATMs, vouchers, in small amounts, just to understand the process.
- Start securing your wallets/BTC
- Move to exchanges, buy from there, KYC or non-KYC doesn’t matter, is about to know the process. Later you can use a coinjoin mixing wallet.
- Start using different types of wallets
- Start having your own nodes (BTC and LN)
- Start earning BTC with your business
- Move slowly away from fiat money, do not depend too much of it
- Be sovereign!
