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.

    "helps to wrap the mind around the bitcoin "

    Everyone who wants to understand what bitcoin is about needs to listen to this 4h audio book. I bought extra 2 paperbacks for my friends who are just starting to wrap their minds around bitcoin. Narrator of this book has a very pleasant voice however I would prefer to hear Andreas reading it out. Just a personal opinion. The book is moderately technical, being a girl born in early 80's I understood most of it. Getting part 2 right away. Give it a go.

    "a bit repetitive "

    good content but way too much repetition, which undermined it's value. should have halved it.

    "Needs Re-editing"

    Repetition is bad enough but having to pay for listening to repetition makes it worse.

    This also happens to be the first book where I got the hear the chapter and para-numbers being narrated as “Chapter two-dot-four-dot-three”.

    The theme is fine and the message that the crypto-currencies are the future with a huge potential could well be conveyed in less than an hour.

    This book needs thorough re-editing.

    "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.

    "Disjointed mishmash"
    Any additional comments?

    What's the lazy way to create a book? Take recordings of various largely impromptu talks you give and slap them together into a disjointed mishmash. Some interesting ideas, but seriously, put in the effort to make an actual cohesive book.

    "great points overall, but too much redundancy. "

    the author has very valid points on the future of the technology. I rated a 3 because there is way too much redundancy in this book. I know it's a compilation, but it was a rush job to get to presses it seems because half of the book could have been cut and could have been a speed read to the points. luckily I listened to it.

    "So much good information!!! "

    Loved every bit of this. I will listen at least one more time. There is so much good thought provoking thought. For the first time after months of researching crypto currency and Bitcoin, I feel like I have a decent grasp on what makes it so truly ground breaking and disruptive.

    "Legit AF"

    Hands down one of the best book to understanding what the movement is truly about. The key to understanding the value of Bitcoin is to know the reasoning behind it and how it overcame the barriers it faced.

    Must read / listen.

    "bitcoin chief marketing officer"

    the book in my opinion is full of marketing material for bitcoin. not the technology of blockchain. but it's a good listen if you know how to separate marketing from facts.
