NOTE: My descriptions are brief 1-2 sentences. They are just suggestions, feel free to edit them as you want. The order presented here is just in the order I have done them, totally up for debate how you’d like to present them or group them on the website, or if all of them will be included or not.
NOTE 2: I have not summarized all of the official/core team articles, as some are very old or no longer relevant, but very possible I missed something which should be included. I have also not talked about videos (they are brief enough to just watch for now?) or NFTs (don’t know enough about them/premature at this stage)
NOTE 3: I have also included at the very end two links to the Bitcoin Forum Post introducing Zenon. Original was in 2018, then moved to a 2020 post.
