"I've always wondered what would have happened if we had built one-click payments into the browser from the very beginning. With bitcoin, we finally get this 'Internet of Money'. But this book isn't just an ode to bitcoin -- it's an ode to open protocols, what happens when you connect people online, and the power of innovation on the internet."
--Marc Andreessen, co-founder Netscape and Andreessen Horowitz
"With Mastering Bitcoin, Andreas Antonopoulos wrote one of the best technical books on digital currency. With The Internet of Money, he's matched that feat by compiling his talks into one of the best books on Bitcoin for a broad audience. Highly recommended!"
--Balaji Srinivasan, CEO 21.co
"Over the past three years, awareness of the sweeping, transformative potential of bitcoin and its underlying blockchain technology has grown exponentially. That required people to grasp not only how this unorthodox technology worked but also its profound promise for society. No one has done more than Andreas Antonopoulos to get them over that hurdle. Read him. It will make you wiser."
--Michael J. Casey, co-author of The Age of Cryptocurrency: How Bitcoin and Digital Money are Challenging the Global Economic Order
About the Author
Andreas M. Antonopoulos is a technologist and serial entrepreneur who has become one of the most well-known and well-respected figures in bitcoin. He is the author of “Mastering Bitcoin”, published by O’Reilly Media and considered by many to be the best technical guide to bitcoin. As an engaging public speaker, teacher and writer, Andreas makes complex subjects accessible and easy to understand. As an advisor, he helps startups recognize, evaluate, and navigate security and business risks. Andreas was one of the first to use the phrase “The Internet of Money” to describe bitcoin and its potential impacts on humanity.

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.
The reason I am rating four stars is that on every single page there was italicized, quoted text; this was not done to introduce a new idea or to be thought provoking, rather it was a word for word reproduction of the text I had read not five seconds ago. Majorly annoying, and I had to train myself to skip these to not interrupt the rhythm of the book. Please do not do this for the next book.
Otherwise an outstanding work.
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!
