The BCH community is large and decentralised (no one is in charge), and the community have produced a ton of great resources about money, cryptocurrency, history and Bitcoin Cash.

All of the following creators and resources are highly recommended:

Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System#

Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System

Published on October 31st 2008, the Bitcoin whitepaper is the original explanation and design specification for the currency by (anonymous) creator Satoshi Nakamoto. It is technical, but only 9 pages (including pictures!) and worth reading to understand Bitcoin directly from its progenitor.

Note that the original Bitcon community (starting in 2009) split into the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Bitcoin (BTC) communities on August 1st 2017. The original community could not agree on the direction of the project, and as there is no one in charge of Bitcoin who could decide the debate, the two groups split the original Bitcoin into two competing versions of Bitcoin (called "forks"). The Bitcoin Cash community was determined to maintain the original design and mission specified in the whitepaper - a peer-to-peer electronic cash system - while the Bitcoin BTC community decided instead to become "digital gold".

Reddit.com /r/btc#

Reddit /r/btc

Chat to the BCH community. As the subreddit was started after /r/Bitcoin began banning all big block opposition, the refugees moved to /r/btc and so ended up squatting on their opposition's ticker symbol when Bitcoin Cash was later invented. A subject of much confusion and mirth to this very day. Also check out /r/Bitcoincash
