Who are some people that know about Bitcoin? My journey of discovering and learning about Bitcoin has come from finding people that have experience with Bitcoin, and enjoy discussing Bitcoin on the Internet, whether on their websites or in social media. To help you get started I’ve compiled a short list of Bitcoin influencers below.
Gavin is one of the lead Bitcoin developers. You can find him listed on the main Bitcoin site here: https://bitcoin.org/en/development

Andreas M. Antonopoulos
Andreas is considered one of the best communicators in the Bitcoin community. He is truly a Bitcoin expert. Andreas recently became the Chief Security Officer of Blockchain.info, a web-based Bitcoin wallet.

Erik Voorhees was one of the first Bitcoin experts I discovered. I reviewed an interview between Erik and Peter Schiff that helped me to understand the value of Bitcoin, and what it is and isn’t.

Edan’s presentation regarding Startup Cities and the use of Bitcoin turned me on to the idea of fully transparent governance. Amazing ideas.

Stephan is a thinker, mostly about freedom and the non-aggression principle. I enjoy his discussions, however I don’t agree with his thoughts on everything, but I do appreciate him sharing what he thinks. Stephan is right on regarding Bitcoin.
All his videos on Bitcoin: http://www.youtube.com/user/stefbot/search?query=bitcoin
I’ve been subscribed to David’s Youtube channel since he started talking about the NSA. Davis is very much on the Bitcoin kick now, and you won’t hear much more about the NSA because it’s old news to him.

I’m subscribed to Mad Bitcoins because it’s informative and silly at the same time. I love the guy’s antics. I hope you enjoy as well.
He makes videos every day!
