The decentralized alternative to the central banking system
In The Bitcoin Standard, economist Saifedean Ammous guides readers through the fascinating history of various forms of money. He explores what gave these different technologies their monetary status and how they lost it, what this teaches us about the desirable properties of money and how Bitcoin attempts to fulfill them.
Ammous explains the economic, social, cultural and political benefits of sound money and contrasts these with our current monetary system. This creates an informed debate about the meaningful role that Bitcoin could play in the future of the global economy. Rather than portraying it as a currency for criminals or a low-cost payment network for the masses, this book describes Bitcoin as an emerging decentralized, politically neutral, and free market alternative to national central banks. An alternative that has potentially huge implications for the freedom and prosperity of every individual.
For anyone who wants to get a clear picture of this new digital money, The Bitcoin Standard is an indispensable basis.
