Summary

Some people still view Bitcoin as a startup. But despite being declared dead many times by the mainstream media, Bitcoin grows stronger every year. What’s going on? 

It’s not too late to learn about Bitcoin and invest! Bitcoin’s value has grown exponentially over multiple boom and bust cycles spanning a decade. Bitcoin is an internet-native phenomenon like Alibaba, Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google, Netflix, Microsoft, and Tencent. 

It, therefore, benefits from the “network effect” which makes it dramatically more valuable as the network grows. But its potential value is much larger than the giant internet companies we know so well. If Bitcoin reaches that potential, its value could rise by 50 times its current price in the coming decade. 

This book will help you understand the role of money in our society, the current state of debt in our economy, and how Bitcoin provides a better solution.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Goes well beyond the subject of Bitcoin. Very informative, and easy to listen to. Well worth the purchase.

Balanced content, A+ writing and well researched

i have listened to over 110+ audiobooks and this is the best book on Bitcoin for my money! The book is very interesting and is a great primer to bring you from knowing nothing to being intermediate. I had stumbled into Bitcoin just from being an early adopter but picked up this book to dive into actually understanding it more as a technology and as a possible investment. If you are merely interested in Bitcoin just for conversational knowledge or are really considering taking this on as a significant investment you should read this book! The author does a great job of balancing the important history and context of money along with the future and needs that bitcoin fills. This is not a sales/"scammy" over-hyped book like most other bitcoin books. The author has real credentials CFA/CFP and work experience on wall street and in financial planning not like many of the books written in this space. I also prefer books that are read by the author so that was a plus. I really enjoyed this book and shared with all my friends and family so they can see what is coming and decide for themselves what to do.

Very enlightening on Bitcoin

I would give this book to someone already lightly familiar with Bitcoin. It covers a lot of the basic concepts ones needs to understand to appreciate BTC properly.

Best exploration of the investment thesis for Bitcoin

This book is the best exploration of the investment theses for Bitcoin. Together with the Bitcoin standard by saiifedean ammous (which covers it from a more historical perspective) these 2 books are an absolute must read for anyone who is considering investing in Bitcoin.
