Description

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.

Les bases ontologiques.

Rien de technique, simplement une bonne introduction au contexte qui rend le Bitcoin si important.

This was an amazing book that really clarifies.

There's a lot of confusion around bit Queen as its completely different paradigm of interaction. This book lays out the fundamentals in contacts with what's going on today. A must read, timeless.

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.

Very Disappointing

The book was very disappointing because it was not technical at all. Also, he kept using way too many examples to over-explain easy concepts. Hearing the word Bitcoin over and over again also tends to get annoying. All of the useful info in here could have been condensed to a 30 minute video, instead of a 5 hour audiobook.

The world's best book on understanding crypto

Andreas Antonopoulos has a gift of explaining complex topics in a way that everyone can easily understand and expand upon. Cryptocurrency is going to be one of the most fundamental technologies of our entire society and it's worth finding out why. When I listened to this there were a few times where a sentence immediately repeated itself in the audio which was annoying but didn't distract too much from the experience.

Intense and Surprising

I don't know how many times I hit replay so I could hear again what he just said. The book is riveting and very difficult to understand. It turns out that what I thought Bitcoin was, isn't. When I accepted that we aren't talking about a coin; that I don't have a wallet but a keychain; that's when I began to see the sheer brilliance of it all.

Informative and Life-Changing

If you're going to read any book this year, this is the book. If you don't understand the concept of a blockchain and or cryptocurrency, this is the first book you should read. And, if you have a friend who doesn't understand the concept of cryptocurrency, forward this book to your friend for Christmas.

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.

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.

Very enlightening

I’ve been on the edges of the Bitcoin and crypto revolution not knowing the best way to get involved. I didn’t know where and how to get good information until I came across Andreas on YouTube. I watched a couple of his videos and immediately downloaded this audio book. I was not disappointed.

I should have read this sooner, but now is ok too.

Having once watched Andreas on YouTube I shouldn’t have taken this long to read his book. His ability to create easy to understand explanations impressed me even though I have a slightly more technical background than the average reader. Granted I have received bitcoin certifications in the past I still found this book to be filled with lots of new ideas and ways of thinking about the fundamental concepts that Bitcoin (both currency and protocol) bring to the table.

My only gripe with the book is that the chapters felt way too short and just when I thought the idea was gaining traction the chapter just ended abruptly. It would have also helped to have chapter titles not just numbers. I lost my position once and finding where I had stopped took a bit of hunting.

I highly recommend this book to people coming at Bitcoin for the first time, and in the same breath to, those who have dabbled with it on and off but without truly understanding its uniqueness.

definitely worth to listen to!

I like that each track is a story by itself.
you don't have to listen the whole book at once.
really intersting stuff especially the comparison with older examples like cars, the internet, emails and so on.

a great introduction

I really enjoyed listening to this first introduction into the world of Bitcoin. it gives a lot of insight into the history of the currency and draws good similarities to other inventions like the automobile and electricity for instance. I now know more about Bitcoin and feel more comfortable using it.
