Review:

"Admirably clear and judicious ... If the word 'blockchain' makes you want to call a plumber, or you think Satoshi is some kind of raw fish, you need to read Cryptocurrency today. If you're already a bit-convert, you'll still learn a lot" -- Niall Ferguson, author of The Ascent of Money "Invaluable ... a fascinating field guide to the phenomenon in which three of the most powerful forces shaping our world today meet - the reform of finance, technological innovation, and the rejection of traditional politics" -- Felix Martin, author of Money: the Unauthorised Biography "Fascinating... Vigna and Casey are cautious, though enthusiastic guides to this strange new world... they know how to dig beneath the surface and they also know how to write. The book is full of fascinating stories, from the origins of money... to the Silk Road bust... Somewhere in this world of blockchains and cryptocurrencies lies the seed of the next online revolution- one that brings radical decentralization, autonomous organisations, a cull of brokers and fixers, a new constraint on government and fiat currencies, and a supercharge to the sharing economy" The Times "Engaging, lucid, and thought-provoking ... I can think of no better guide to what the future holds" -- Eswar Prasad, author of The Dollar Trap "Not only demystifies and explains bitcoin, but shows where it fits into the cultural zeitgeist and where it's pointed, and what that may mean for our financial system" -- John Mauldin, New York Times bestselling author

Book Description Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The system that governs how money works, with its brokers and middlemen, has stayed roughly the same for centuries. Now there s an alternative, and it puts us on the cusp of a revolution that could reshape our world. At the heart of this lie cryptocurrencies, a technology with the transformative potential of the printing press or the internet. They bypass the elites and cut out the gatekeepers. Unlike traditional money they re peer-to-peer, they don t have a nationality, they re digital and democratic. They are also lawless. For the Afghani woman denied a bank account by a repressive society, or any of the world s 2.5 billion unbanked individuals, cryptocurrencies open new possibilities. What would a world without banks or credit cards or even national currencies look like for all of us? From Silicon Valley to the streets of Beijing, this is a book about a revolution in the making, a story of human invention, and a guide to the future. Bookseller Inventory # AAZ9781784700737
