The Bitcoin Standard: The Decentralized Alternative to Central Banking
One of the most popular books about Bitcoin ever written, The Bitcoin Standard takes you on a journey through the history and economics that make bitcoin the most successful digital currency of all time.
Beginning with one of the most important concepts for understanding crypto, “What is money?” and getting into Monetary Metals where Saif makes one of his most famous insights by measuring bitcoin’s “hardness” by comparing its stock-to-flow to other precious metals.
Later we learn to appreciate the value of having a low time preference before wrapping up with an explanation of What Bitcoin is Good For and a few popular Bitcoin questions and answers.
