The complete book to understand Bitcoin
THIS TECHNOLOGY THAT IS EMERGING IN THE WORLD TODAY IS NOT LIKE ANY OTHER.
We are facing a creature that is at the same time an informatics protocol, a computer network, and an electronic currency, and it has the concrete pretension of profoundly changing our habits.
Bitcoin is a new paradigm. It is a phenomenon capable of completely shaking things up, questioning our certainties and disrupting the foundations of finance, politics, and philosophy. It is a neutral decentralized system, not controlled by anyone in particular, incorruptible, unchangeable, and uncensorable, whose security is based on mathematics and cryptography. Bitcoin implements a sound money, capable of protecting people’s privacy and freedom. At the same time, however, it presents itself as an extremely mysterious and complex phenomenon to frame and understand.
