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.

    "Great Intro To Bitcoin"

    A few things are repeated but this is good as they become talking points for me, as soon it was downloaded I listened to the whole book. Great compilation and the way you transfer your vision of BTC into words. Remarkable. I am encouraging all my connections in this space to listen. Cheers.

    "Volume One of Many More..."

    Andreas is the synthesizing voice of bitcoin and cryptocurrency. His fresh analogies and thought experiment anecdotes make the difficult topic of Internet money accessible to non-tech explorers. Hopefully there will be many more volumes to come. AMA is part comedian, part philosopher, part economist, and wholly entertaining.
