Inventing Bitcoin: The Technology Behind The First Truly Scarce and Decentralized Money Explained
Do you remember your first trip down the Bitcoin rabbit hole? It probably took days, weeks, or months, and maybe even several different attempts to traverse it, to get to a comfortable understanding of bitcoin, its history, and why it’s so cool and important. Maybe it even took a few different read-throughs of our own bitcoin breakdown! Bitcoin, with its scope, size, and complexity, is daunting to understand fully – a complete trip down the rabbit hole can cross paths with various points in history, politics, economics, and society to understand the full impact it will make someday.
This book does an excellent job of breaking a lot of it down simply. Written by Yan Pritzker, CTO and co-founder of Swan Bitcoin, explains the most technical aspects of Bitcoin, what Satoshi’s vision for bitcoin was, and the reasons it will ultimately succeed… All while keeping things like technical jargon, complex explanations and unnatural concepts away, and replacing them with language like you’d read in your favorite self-help book. It’s an excellent way to kick off or continue your trip down the bitcoin rabbit hole!
