What is this place?
This website is a vast collection of links to bitcoin only resources (think websites, software, videos etc that are focused on bitcoin). Content is grouped into sections which you can quickly get back to by pressing the
Main Menu button at the bottom of each page.
Who made this?
My name is (@6102bitcoin), I'm a pseudonymous bitcoin user and educator doing what I can to accelerate bitcoin understanding. I have done my best to ensure that this site only links to high quality resources, but in the words of Matt Odell - 'I'm merely a tool in your own quest for knowledge. My aim is to help you but I demand you do your own due diligence.'
How do I use this site?
1. I recommend that you bookmark the site and check back in regularly! There is a huge amount of content to explore, so take your time.
2. Read 'What is Bitcoin' - A simple 5-10 minute read which introduces you to bitcoin in a clear, accurate and non-technical way.
4. Get Exploring. Have a look around and reach out to me on twitter (@6102bitcoin) if you have any questions.
(This guide will be extended soon)

New Project Requirements
For a new project to be listed on bitcoin-only it must simply meet the following two requirements;
|2.||Not Support Altcoins.|
we've changed, We are now bitcoin-only!
People make mistakes (such as supporting / promoting altcoins) and my belief is that if a project is now genuinely bitcoin only it is welcome.
That said, if a company previously supported altcoins and then switches to be bitcoin only how do we know that they won't switch back?
It's for this reason that to be listed, companies that switch to being bitcoin only must also meet the following additional requirement;
|3.||Publicly explain why they became bitcoin only and remove/update any old public information in which altcoins are promoted.|
These requirements are a good way to filter out those companies who are actually committed to being bitcoin only vs. those jumping on the bandwagon.
It also serves a secondary purpose - to help educating those users who are not (yet) bitcoin only and begin to counteract the damage caused by previously supporting altcoins.
Note: This is a prerequisite for being evaluated for addition and meeting these requirements does not guarantee you will be added.
