When I dove down the rabbit hole of Bitcoin in late 2013, Andreas' YouTube talks and podcasts pulled me further in, and this book is a compilation of these entertaining and informative talks. The source videos are well worth watching, and this book is a good complement to them. His engaging speaking style comes through on the page, and his enthusiasm about the technical, economic, and societal changes that are possible with the invention of decentralized consensus protocols is infectious.

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.

His first book "Mastering Bitcoin" was excellent, but for more technical folks. This one is for the masses that are entering this decentralised worldwide distributed peer-to-peer open source digital currency world. Andreas is a genius not only for his vast knowledge, but for his ability to explain something complex to the everyday Joe. For those who don't know what bitcoin is:

Bitcoin is backed by mathematics, open source code, cryptography and the most powerful and secure decentralised computational network on the planet, orders of magnitude more powerful than google and government combined. There is a limit of 21 million bitcoins (divisible in smaller units). "Backed by Government" money is not backed by anything and is infinitely printed at will by Central Banks. Bitcoin is limited and decentralized.

**Receive and transfer money, from cents (micropayments) to thousands:**

* Almost for free (a few cents fee).

* Privacy (no need to expose personal information)

* Securely (encrypted cryptographically and can’t be confiscated)

* Instantly (from seconds to a few minutes)

* Open source (auditable by anybody)

* Worldwide (from anywhere to anywhere on the planet)

* Peer-to-peer (no intermediaries with a cut)

* Public ledger (transparent, seen by everybody)

* Decentralized (distributed with no single point of failure)

* No chargebacks-No fraud ('push' vs' 'pull' transactions).

And that’s just as currency, Bitcoin has many more uses and applications.

An inspiring manifesto from a crypto luminary, worth every cent. I was sad to finish the book but I felt a renewed sense of enthusiasm for Bitcoin and the digital currency space after finishing.

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.

Pablo.

As always, Andreas knocked it out of the park. Bitcoin is a difficult concept for most people to grasp, especially at this stage. Like many other great ideas, the spark innovation starts with single person, spreads to a small group of people who are capable of understanding and appreciating its significance, and finally (usually over the course of many years) the rest of the world is dragged kicking and screaming to the conclusion that the idea is brilliant; a conclusion they later regard as "obvious, natural, and inevitable." Andreas' first book, "Mastering Bitcoin" helped many developers see the potential of Bitcoin. "The Internet of Money" is more accessible for less technical readers. There are links to videos for each section of material in the book. If you have recently considered any of the following questions, this book is for you:
What is Bitcoin?
Why should I care?
WTF is block chain?
Is it secure?
What can Bitcoin do that the dollar can't?
Who benfits?
Is Bitcoin doomed to fail?

All of these questions and more are answered in this easy-reading book. You can read about it for yourself, or have a ten-year-old break it down for you ten years from now. Either way, Bitcoin is coming.

With his encyclopaedic grasp of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies, aided by his long involvement with the internet, as well as his training in computer science, Andreas Antonopoulos can rightfully be described as the “Carl Sagan and Alvin Toffler rolled into one” of cryptocurrencies and the blockchain. Just as Sagan brought complex cosmological theory to regular people, and Toffler extrapolated future trends from current realities, so Antonopoulos, with The Internet of Money, explains the Byzantine intricacies of the blockchain and cryptocurrencies so that non-technical people can understand what the hell this is all about. But he doesn’t stop there. Having explained what it’s about, he then presents a compelling and, I believe, prescient vision of where this is all going. I have been a bitcoin enthusiast since early 2013. Since then I have read literally hundreds of articles and all of the books published on the subject. The Internet of Money is the one I wish I had been able to read when I first got involved. I would have been saved a lot of time and money and spared much confusion and misconception.
