"Bitcoin, a cyber-enigma with an enthusiastic following, fueling endless media debate. You can apparently use it to buy anything from coffee to cars, yet few people seem to truly understand what it is. Cybermoney is poised to launch a revolution, one that could reinvent traditional financial and social structures while bringing the world's billions of "unbanked" individuals into a new global economy, holding the promise of a financial system without a middleman, one owned by the people who use it and one safeguarded from the devastation of a 2008-type crash. But bitcoin, the most famous of the cybermonies, carries a reputation for instability, wild fluctuation, and illicit business; some fear it has the power to eliminate jobs and to upend the concept of a nation-state. The authors demystify cryptocurrency--its origins, its function, and what you need to know to navigate a cyber-economy"--Provided by publisher.
