Reseña del editor
"The Internet of Money Volume Two: a collection of talks" is the spectacular sequel to the cult classic and best seller "The Internet of Money Volume One: a collection of talks" by Andreas M. Antonopoulos. Volume Two contains 11 more of his most inspiring and thought-provoking talks, including: Introduction to Bitcoin; Blockchain vs Bullshit; Fake News, Fake Money; Currency Wars; Bubble Boy and the Sewer Rat; Rocket Science and Ethereum's Killer App; and many more. Volume Two also includes an all-new frequently asked questions section! In 2013, Andreas M. Antonopoulos started publicly speaking about bitcoin and quickly became one of the world's most sought-after speakers in the industry. To date, he has delivered more than 75, TED-style talks in venues ranging from the Henry Ford Museum in the United States to packed-out Bitcoin Meetups around the world including Brazil, the Czech Republic, and New Zealand, and every talk is completely different. In these performances, Antonopoulos walks onto the stage and delivers a live, unscripted talk. Without a deck in sight, he unleashes his latest insights into the lightning-fast changes surrounding bitcoin. Combining the knowledge of one of the world's leading blockchain technologists, with cultural context, comedy, and the flair of a performance artist, Antonopoulos conveys an up-to-the-second understanding of bitcoin to live audiences worldwide. Many of these talks were so visionary, their content so educational, that they were curated and refined into a book form. On 7 September 2016, The Internet of Money Volume One was launched on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast (the interview has since been viewed more than 300,000 times). With its genesis in the lived, human experience, The Internet of Moneyoffered something that was desperately needed: an explanation of the philosophy, economics, politics, poetics, and technologies of bitcoin and open blockchains set within a broad historical context and using clear, simple language that delighted general audiences and bitcoin enthusiasts alike. During its first year, Volume One quickly became a hit in the global crypto-currency community-appealing to audiences from fields as diverse as the arts, sciences, and humanities. As one reader wrote: "It provides a uniquely accessible take on a mind-bendingly abstract system." The Internet of Money Volume Two: a collection of talks builds on that momentum and offers readers an opportunity to experience more these inspiring and thought-provoking talks in print. It also includes a bonus question and answer section, where Andreas answers some of the most frequently asked questions from audience members during his worldwide tour. Volume Two is a sequel that rivals, even exceeds, the first, in content, scope, and vision. These talks are intellectual fire-starters you won't want to miss. Make this book part of your collection and see why Andreas M. Antonopoulos is considered the most powerful and engaging voice in crypto-currency and blockchain.

I have worked my whole life in IT, both building and selling software for and to banks, insurance companies and especially large investment companies. During that time I also must have been involved in 100's of legal contracts. Plus for the last 12 years I have lived in the Philippines owning and running a resort that everyday bangs into the problems of getting modest advance payments from prospective customers from many different countries (using credit cards, bank transfers, Paypal etc). All areas potentially impacted by bitcoin and Bitcoin technology..
Plus I am a very conservative investor, who scoffed at Bitcoin just 3 months ago and sagely told others not to be duped. But Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies started to interest me 2 months ago (late comer, yes!) and I started to do some research. The Internet of Money is about the 5th book I have read including the whole history of bitcoin (the currency) and Bitcoin (the technology).plus the history of money and credit in general. As a result I am now starting to understand the full potential of the disruptive long term impacts of fully open, infinitely scalable, decentralized, anonymous peer to peer technology supported by new encryption techniques and the immutable nature of blockchains. Plus the applications now being built on this technology such as smart contracts.
And the more you read, the clearer it becomes that we are indeed in a game-changing era. Maybe even more so than the early stages of the internet, which I started using in the early 90's. Especially, from the perspective of huge companies like banks, investment companies and maybe 70% of the globes currencies, etc etc. But also from the perspective of the under-banked and unbanked as Andreas calls these huge groups.
Certainly the short term (next 2 years?) will be very volatile, especially for those who invest in crytpocurrencies or crowdfunding. But the longer term impacts may turn out to be mind blowing and there will be big winners, big losers and big opportunities.
Without doubt, The Internet of Money Vol 2 will be the first book I will now recommend to my friends who are still skeptics or just starting to become interested in all the above. It is easy to read, concise, quite detailed, but not too much and most importantly keeps the big picture in focus at all times. Plus you can watch the podcasts if you prefer! ..
I find it helpful to have a tangible reference in addition to online material.
Makes a great gift!!!!!
