Famed Crypto Expert Andreas Antonopoulos’ The Internet of Money Volume Two Book: Must Read?
Antonopoulo's The Internet of Money Vol. 2
Andreas M Antonopoulos, Greek-British Bitcoin advocate, technologist and serial entrepreneur and author of The Internet of Money Volume 1 (2016) released a sequel to the bestselling, engaging and informative conversations on Bitcoin and cryptocurrency. The Internet of Money Volume 2 was published in November 2017.
Featuring 11 of Antonopoulos’ most captivating and inspiring TED talks, Volume 2 is presented in a structure similar to the first. The arrangement is such that the talks are arranged to form a long coherent discourse.
The selected talks were held between 2015 and 2017 with topics which include the following: Introduction to Bitcoin; Bitcoin versus Ethereum; Blockchain versus Bullshit; Fake News, Fake Money; Currency Wars; Bubble Boy and the Sewer Rat; Rocket Science and Ethereum Killer’s App; Immutability and proof-of-work; Streaming Money; and others.
The presented talks have been edited in this recent volume to reflect the core of the message. According to the author,
“My talks are littered with minor factual errors. I recite dates, events, numbers, and technical details from memory and often get them wrong. In this book, my off-the-cuff errors, malapropisms, and verbal tics have been cleaned up by the editors. What remains is the essence of each presentation — how I wish it had been delivered, rather than a transcript of the actual delivery.”
According to ICO Examiner, the book leaves the reader,
“With no doubt that Antonopoulos now recognises that the Blockchain’s revolutionary technology likely implies an equally revolutionary impact on social relations – and it might be time to pick sides.”
Princi’s review in Blurbhack reflects on the author’s insightfulness.
“Andrea’s examines how the technology not only can disrupt institutions but also why people are actually seeking alternatives to the known establishments. This extends beyond, finance to transport, communication and news.”
Antonopoulos successfully speculates on possible changes in the future demonstrating insight aided by simple, radical even, yet thought-provoking metaphors. The Internet of Money Vol. 2 is a great recommendation for anyone curious enough about the potentials of cryptocurrency as well as a familiar acquaintance in need of fresh perspectives.
