"With Mastering Bitcoin, Andreas Antonopoulos wrote one of the best technical books on digital currency. With The Internet of Money, he's matchedthat feat by compiling his talks into one of the best books on Bitcoinfor a broad audience. Highly recommended!"
--Balaji Srinivasan, CEO 21.co
"Over the past three years, awareness of the sweeping, transformativepotential of bitcoin and its underlying blockchain technology has grownexponentially. That required people to grasp not only how thisunorthodox technology worked but also its profound promise for society.No one has done more than Andreas Antonopoulos to get them over thathurdle. Read him. It will make you wiser."

Beyond the more pragmatic applications of cryptocurrency for the millions of unbanked around the world, Andreas also waxes philosophic on deeper topics such as the history of money, the role cryptocurrency can play for individual sovereignty and privacy, and the implications of currency as language, where currency transfer is, at root, an expression of value akin to speech.
When I read these edited and updated transcripts, I hear them in his voice, which only makes me want to watch the linked videos all over again. This compilation is a great resource to be read, re-read, gifted, and shared with family and friends. It provides a uniquely accessible take on a mind-bendingly abstract system, and is perfect for those with a casual or budding interest in the field of cryptocurrency.
It has a very prophetic / religious tone that I don't think would even apply to the Internet which changed a lot but is far from changing anything too fundamental about mankind, some would even argue in many aspecs mankind could have been better off without it as it is now.
Also, the same points are repeated over and over and over again... just like religions do with their points...
But even more than a ground-breaking author, Andreas is truly a Bitcoin ambassador of the highest-order. He is a brilliant educator, always communicating with clear vision and passion, traveling across the globe these past three years, inspiring and enlightening growing numbers of people who are eager to learn about the revolutionary innovation of cryptocurrencies. Andreas’s profound technical expertise is complemented by his uncanny gift for making complex topics readily accessible to lay audiences. He is utterly convincing in his arguments for why Bitcoin REALLY matters—how this radically new “technology of money” in the age of the Internet will, slowly but surely, turn our old paradigms inside out. His recently released second book, The Internet of Money, an edited compilation of some of his best presentations, is an absolute must read for anyone and everyone who wants a sneak-peak at the future of finance and banking. Read this book (and watch the source videos) to gain deep insights into HOW and WHY Bitcoin will change the world for the better in the coming decades!
Top international reviews
My problem with this at times repetitive collection of transcripts from freely-available YouTube lectures is that it ignores the inherent issues of blockchain and thus doesn't disseminate them to the general public in the way it does with its benefits. Problems like ever-increasing transaction fees, canonical cryptocurrency fragmentation, inaccessible wallet technology, blockchain size scalability and wild, unpredictable price fluctuations aren't addressed and neither are crucial issues like centralisation of hashpower or the fundamentally unsustainable concept of proof-of-work mining.
A more balanced account, and changing most mentions of "bitcoin" to "blockchain"' as well as mentioning rival technologies such as Tangle would have made this a far greater piece.
I Read "The Internet of Money" once so far, definitely deserves a re-read to make the material really sink in.
This book is split up brilliantly into talks delivered by Andreas Antonopoulos and each section is delivered in a way for the average reader to make sense of some very complex discussions.
If you're new to bitcoin my advise is don't go and buy bitcoin, first buy books on the space and educate yourself so that when we have our cyclical bubbles you don't take a loss and sell because you're aware just how great the technology you've invested in is.
This is not a technical manual, so it is very easy to read and understand for non-techy people.
I would say its more philosophical as it helps to grasp the idea, scope and implications of the blockchain technology.
Would recommend to everyone who wants to understand what the hell is this thing called Bitcoin/blockchain and why do we need it.
Recommended to everyone!
Great analogies to help the layman and beginner to bitcoin understand how profound this new technology is.
Bitcoin is not just money.
Bitcoin is the Internet of money!
