“necessary reading for anyone considering dipping their toe into investing in bitcoin or its peers” —Michael Radon, US Review of Books
“Kinsey has accomplished the almost impossible, a finance book that is not only informative and useful but also entertaining!” —Aimee Ann
Blockchain is a product of the crypto-anarchist community called the Cypherpunks. Their radical dream is to someday eliminate all governments on earth. Later, IBM and others muddied the waters with “a less anarchistic” version of the technology (permissioned Blockchain). Advocates for both types of Blockchain, anarchists and non-anarchists, have big plans to change the world.
“Using his experience working in software development on a foreign currency exchange application, Kinsey has the technical background to explain how blockchain works and an economic understanding as to how the outsider perspective gets key details about cryptocurrency wrong. The average reader who has heard about these topics or maybe has done some minor research in them will be surprised to learn about inefficiencies in the process or ties to WikiLeaks, election tampering, and theoretical assassination funding. Eye-opening in all the best ways and relayed with a quality that few non-fiction books ever reach, this in-depth guide is intriguing, shocking, and informative as it covers three decades of history punctuated by the social and technological explosion of the last ten years.
RECOMMENDED by the US Review” —Michael Radon
