Overview

Throughout history, humans have used physical money in exchange for goods and services. But in an age where you can hold a small computer in your hand and video call someone across the ocean, have you ever thought about how outdated physical currency actually is? In addition to being a hassle to produce and handle, regular currencies are easy for governments to control, which is how the cryptocurrency revolution came about.

In Digital Gold: Bitcoin and the Inside Story of the Misfits and Millionaires Trying to Reinvent Money, Nathaniel Popper gives us a history of Bitcoin. He teaches the fundamentals of how the cryptocurrency works, both the advantages and disadvantages, so that we might make up our own minds on its potential future in this world.
