Publisher's Summary

This digest depicts the rise of Bitcoin as it secures its position as the number one digital currency and as the new "digital" gold standard for the millennial age.
Whilst still a young currency, it has been adopted by millions of users around the globe. Some doubt its sustainability, yet the concept has spread all over the world to people who are calling for a currency free from governmental intervention - a democratic currency. Bitcoin truly threatens to weaken the power governments have by attempting to decentralize local currencies world over.
Bitcoin's story is a story of crowd invention. This digest captures its rise from when the first pioneer of the currency, Satoshi Nakamoto gave birth to it. It has piqued the interest of seasoned investors such as the Winklevoss brothers to the Argentinian billionaire, Wences Casares, who recognize its potential to change the world.
Many have profited massively from the currency, however it has been the downfall for many others, especially those who have used it to trade in the black market.
The digest finishes with an optimistic account of Blockchain, the infrastructure that underpins Bitcoin, detailing the potential it has to disrupt corrupt governments and organizations for the better.
A fascinating audiobook that leaves you excited about the future.
