Board games are back: Monopoly, Scrabble, Clue, Scattegories, Risk, Battleship – these are some of the hottest items filling up the dinner table to help pass the time. Books are also making the rounds as millions of people across the globe have been ordered to stay at home amidst the coronavirus pandemic.
Bitcoin enthusiast Russell Okung has jump-started a Twitter thread serving up titles for the crypto curious and newbie students looking to learn the basics about finance, Bitcoin and monetary policy.
Okung, an offensive tackle for the Carolina Panthers, is a major Bitcoin supporter who asked the National Football League last year to pay his salary in the world’s leading cryptocurrency.
Pay me in Bitcoin.

Now Okung is asking his followers to list titles to help educate people about money.
“After I was introduced to Bitcoin, I realized that MOST people don’t understand the history of money or how it works. Drop your recommendations for books on money below.”
