Not since the invention of the Internet itself has there been such a controversial technological creation as Bitcoin. Bitcoin’s early pioneers sought to blur the lines of sovereignty and the financial status quo. After years of underground development, Bitcoin grabbed the attention of a curious public – as well as the ire of the regulators the technology had subverted. Yet after landmark arrests of prominent cyber criminals, Bitcoin, which actually surged on election night, still faces its most severe adversary, the very banks it was built to destroy.
Cryptocurrencies are complicated, but Banking on Bitcoin gives a solid overview of the mechanics and history from a digital dollars used to buy drugs on the “dark web” to an investment opportunity that everyone and their aunt is talking about. Full review here.
