Publisher's Summary

While many books explain the how of bitcoin, The Internet of Money delves into the why of bitcoin. Acclaimed information-security expert and author of Mastering Bitcoin, Andreas M. Antonopoulos examines and contextualizes the significance of bitcoin through a series of essays spanning the exhilarating maturation of this technology.

Bitcoin, a technological breakthrough quietly introduced to the world in 2008, is transforming much more than finance. Bitcoin is disrupting antiquated industries to bring financial independence to billions worldwide. In this book, Andreas explains why bitcoin is a financial and technological evolution with potential far exceeding the label "digital currency."

Andreas goes beyond exploring the technical functioning of the bitcoin network by illuminating bitcoin's philosophical, social, and historical implications. As the Internet has essentially transformed how people around the world interact and has permanently impacted our lives in ways we never could have imagined, bitcoin - the Internet of money - is fundamentally changing our approach to solving social, political, and economic problems through decentralized technology.

    "Good rough summary of Bitcoin capabilities"

    The book is a good rough introduction to Bitcoin without getting bogged down in details of exactly how transactions and blocks work. There is educated speculation about the possible future implications of peer-to-peer cryptocurrencies (such as Bitcoin). I would recommend this to someone who is curious but not necessarily familiar with information technology. For those familiar with Bitcoin already this book is a nice refresher and reminder about what the protocol is capable of and what it's future political implications may be.

    What made the experience of listening to The Internet of Money the most enjoyable?

    The content.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    n/a


    Which scene was your favorite?

    n/a


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    no.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a great listen and I'm sure to listen to it again several more times. Andreas is inspiring and I can listen to his cogent thoughts and explanations all day. It's too bad this book doesn't turn up in the results if you search for the term 'bitcoin'!

    "The History of Money"

    There is no speaker or supporter of Bitcoin with such a deeply considered perspective on the value and unique invention of Bitcoin as Andreas.

    I am now a Crytocurrency trading and mining consultant and whenever I doubt my involvement with Crytocurrency, I turn to Andreas on YouTube and I'm comforted that I made the right decision. for myself and my family.

    May you find that same surety and basis of conviction in this audio book, as I have, to keep peeling the layers of the onion that Bitcoin is.

    "The perfect introduction to bitcoin and blockchain"
    If you could sum up The Internet of Money in three words, what would they be?

    Learn Bitcoin Blockchain


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Internet of Money?

    The fact that internet transactions can happen at a fraction of a cent, and content providers can sell their content to you at fractions of cents, instead of dollars.
    The six billion un- / under banked people on earth can have access to financial services


    What about Stephanie Murphy’s performance did you like?

    She captivates the listener

    "Taking the Mystery out of the Bitcoin History"

    I am a big fan of Bitcoin but I find it so hard to explain Bitcoin to my friends and family. This audiobook is an excellent reference point and simplifies so much that it will be easier for me to explain to people now, I'll just share a link. ;)
