Early adopters would make a return two million times larger than their investment. Now it seems that Bitcoin will do to banking and finance what email did to the postal service and what the internet did to publishing: destroy old monopolies and create opportunities for the masses. Some even suggest that the technology behind Bitcoin will usurp our Western systems of representative democracy.

But his first book, Life After The State, has nothing to do with comedy.
It is a deadly serious dismantling of the way societies are run in the west, outlining the damage governments unknowingly do to their people, with simple suggestions about how things can be vastly improved.
Dominic writes an investment column for MoneyWeek and has written and produced numerous short films and videos, including the viral hit 'Debt Bomb'. His script-writing ranges from episodes of the kids' show 'Roary the Racing Car' to the feature documentary 'The Four Horsemen', about the global financial crisis. He is a frequent speaker on gold and money on television, radio and at conferences.
Frisby is also a comedian and actor, described as 'viciously funny and inventive' by the Guardian; 'masterful' by the Evening Standard; and 'great comedy talent' by Chortle.
Day-to-day he is found trotting about the sound studios of London, voicing everything from BBC nature documentaries to zombies in Hollywood blockbusters. He has also worked as a TV presenter, a boxing-ring announcer, a florist, a removal man, an extremely camp theatrical agent's PA, a sports commentator and a busker. Tell the Publisher!

Verified Purchase. A great beginning, I appreciated his chapters on the rise of Bitcoin, and his search for the real Satoshi was quite the page turner. But he lost me with the Libertarian sermonizing. We need much less on how Bitcoin will usher in a utopian age of freedom and equality, and more on practical applications that can happen in the near term.
The author's chapter on how Bitcoin will be the enemy of the state is rife with bad economic analysis and straw man arguments. Deflation will help the poor? You mean the people in the US who are massively in debt? Not likely It is also incredibly naive. What is more likely, Bitcoin will bring equality to the masses, and shrink the ever growing gap between rich and poor? Or the rich and powerful, as they've always done, will find ways to leverage Bitcoin to ensure they increase their wealth and power?
But this time it's different you say! Ha, yeah, good one. The author believes Bitcoin will help reduce war, as well. As if the most powerful nation on earth, the war masters, will just throw their hands up and say, "We want to invade another country, but with Bitcoin we are forced to act more responsibly and morally, there's just nothing we can do! Still, it's a fun read, I did learn a lot, and it's well written and engaging. One person found this helpful. Dominic has outdone himself with this book.
This has to be the most complete bitcoin publication out there. His detective skills are great in the quest for Szabo I mean Satoshi. A must read for anyone into the BitCoin Revolution.
This review is from Billbags. Todo perfecto. Translate review to English. Fascinating book on what could be the future of our financial system.
Book provides decent information about Bitcoin but the stress and investigation on Satoshi Nakamoto is a deviation. Easy to read and excellent historical account on the development of Bitcoin, and the author's well thought out views on the potential uses of Bitcoin technology.
Bitcoin explained brilliantly. See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries. Very interesting! Wish I had read this when I first bought it over a year ago. I would have bought cryptos hat much earlier. Our world is about to turn inside out. I love the subversive nature of it so we can escape from the clutches of government and finance kleptocrats. Do read this book! Although written in it still feels relevant today, although some resources websites etc referred to seem to no longer exist.
An entertaining but not too technical book that exposes the basic weaknesses of monetary policy over the past 80 years, and makes a case for a new dispensation in which the middlemen exchange dealers are eliminated to the benefit of consumers.
The author is aware of two basic difficulties that face virtual currencies, their use in illegal drugs and arms sales, and the speculation in their value relative to US dollars et cetera which has deterred many from using them. The first may in fact be impossible to regulate without outside intervention, which of course would threaten the ethos of bitcoins, and arguably this is a severe and possibly fatal limitation. The second has occurred throughout history when something valuable has come onto the market encouraging speculation and other forms of manipulation, but as Frisby points out this volatility will even out in the long run.
The author noted that a few people seem to have accumulated rather a lot of bitcoins which at the moment seem to be residing on computer hard drives. The balance of the book has been disturbed a little by a rather long discussion, with an appendix, on the identity of 'Satoshi', a bitcoin pioneer.
The author has certainly gone to a lot of trouble analysing the texts of emails put out by a variety of bitcoin entrepreneurs and inventors to identify the person concerned, although it could be argued that this is a distraction from the main purpose of the book, to set out a case for virtual currencies.
Fascinating look into the background and culture of cryptocurrency. Written for a non-technical audience, but will still be of interest to any techy looking to understand the origins and wider implications of digital money.
There is already a significant paradigm shift around our modern economy and how we view money. Cryptocurrency will undoubtedly be at the center of this shift for decades to come. Essential reading for anyone who uses money and the internet. I was amazed just how much this guy knows. It was a revelation about Bitcoin, government intervention, banking fraud and manipulation. On Bitcoin itself he managed somehow to turn an almost incomprehensible topic into a oage-turner.
