"Getting Started with Bitcoin" Pillar 

The "Getting Started with Bitcoin" Pillar is an organization of thought of the Libranican Project.   The Libranican Project is designed by the Dark Street Organization to organize information sources in the cryptocurrency world around specific subjects so that information, opinions, media, and arguments can be found quickly in silos of information called Pillars.

The goal of this information is to provide basic steps to get started with Bitcoin.  It does not go into depth on what Bitcoin is or into depth on wallets, exchanges etc.
