Struggling with Blockchain resources? Here we go!!

The struggle is real. It has always been hard for beginners to find useful and completely informative resources on Blockchain. Even when I started reading and learning about Blockchain, the struggle was to search and hit quick informative links to learn and get hands-on with Blockchain platforms. Now that Blockchain technology is really gaining traction in the market, It is quite common situation that someone asks ‘I’m starting with blockchain, can you suggest me some resources?’ And in most of the scenarios, I ended up sharing some random resources or documentations which I never cared much for real because we don’t remember everything which helped us throughout the learnings.

Henceforth, we don’t have to care much about resources. Here I add list of few useful Blockchain resources. Go, learn!
