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.

    "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. ;)

    "A great starting point"

    This is only my second book on the subject and I will most likely take the time to listen again. I will definitely follow the author to gain more from his insights into this world changing technological revolution. This book left me very excited about the future.

    "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 for beginners"

    This book provides great insight into BTC for a newcomer in a much easier to understand format that just trying to read articles on the web on your own. Glad I came across it.

    "Great Insight"

    Even after listening to "Blockchain Revolution" (over and over!), the author sheds new light on Bitcoin and Blockchain for me...forgive some of the redundancy (these are a series of talks over a few years) and listening will be rewarded!

    "A must read/listen, this is the future."

    I've been in the crypto space for a few months now and I've researched and learned so much about Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, the technology, etc. This book is a compilation of many Andreas' talks about Bitcoin that come together to shed light on the technology and why it's so important.

    I recommend this to anyone and everyone who wants to learn more about Bitcoin and why the block chain technology is important, and the implications it has on our future. Or just anyone who has the capacity to understand the concepts he talks about in general, which is most of us considering he doesn't get too technical about anything. This is THE book for everyone.

    The space is shrouded with misunderstandings, doubt, and speculation and Andreas does a good job at explaining why and how to look at Bitcoin admist all of it.

    This is our future, I firmly believe this will have an extremely large impact on our lives so don't get left behind.

    Also I recommend looking up Mr. Aantonopolis' talks on YouTube or anywhere you can find them so you get an idea of what the book will be talking about.

    "simple and straight to the point!!!"

    I had read 2 books about blockchain/bitcoin before this one and was still struggling to understand; this book brought it home. Andreas has taken a complex topic and made it so super easy to understand. It is a must read.

    "Loved it."
    If you could sum up The Internet of Money in three words, what would they be?

    I love this book. If you don't know much about Bitcoin but are interested in the idea, then this is the book for you. 5 stars.

    "New to bitcoin? This will get you up to speed"

    I am well versed in bitcoin and have spent my own time developing personal views before diving into this.

    Andreas delivers an enjoyable and informative series of talks on the past present and the inevitable future of bitcoin and cryptocurrency.

    I have shared this audio book with two friends; one in his 30's one in his 60's, both found it informative as a first step to understanding this new technology and its relevance to the future of the world.
