"This book introduces the reader to cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. It focuses on Bitcoin, the most popular cryptocurrency, but discusses others such as Ethereum and even includes a short discussion of Libra, Facebook's recently announced crypto offering. Unlike other books on blockchain, which tend to approach the topic from a computer science perspective, this book starts with a monetary theory perspective, describing what role money serves in society, and how Bitcoin relates to and is different from traditional currency. The book then explores the technical aspects of the Bitcoin system: its communications protocol, its decentralized validation processes, and the basics of Bitcoin mining. The book also addresses the challenges that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies face: price volatility, adoption/scalability, regulatory uncertainty, and energy consumption. Some central banks are considering issuing their own digital currencies, and the authors discuss several possibilities related to central bank digital currencies. The authors also briefly discuss non-monetary applications of blockchain technology like smart contracts. There are a handful of courses on bitcoin and blockchain in economics programs, for which this could be a suitable primary text, but I think the greater likelihood is for this to be a supplemental text in an economics course geared towards monetary theory and policy, of which Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies would be a smaller unit. The book is accessible enough for undergraduates to understand, but could also be used in Master's or first-year PhD courses. Basically, in economics, the course this book would be used in is required, but the book itself is more of a supplement. The technological details of how Bitcoin works are accessible enough for non-computer science students to understand, but may be a bit lacking for CS majors. However, CS instructors who want their students to understand the economic underpinnings of cryptocurrencies might assign selections from this book"--
The Bitcoin Basics: Bitcoin - Blockchain - Cryptocurrency and the Future of Bitcoin
Author: Lee Sebastian
Bitcoin Cryptocurrency Traditional currencies operate on a centralized model that is heavily regulated by the national government that issues it. Bitcoin, however, is a decentralized virtual currency that was created in 2008-2009 by a mysterious figure known only as Satoshi Nakamoto. In the years since it has entered the mainstream consciousness; in recent years, its growing popularity has caused its value to SKYROCKET. Bitcoin is not regulated by any centralized institution but rather by the vast peer-to-peer network that enables it to exist and function. This keeps it from being manipulated and/or used to support the interests of a few wealthy, elite individuals in power. In this way, it functions as a "people's currency." There is a lot of hype surrounding Bitcoin. It has been featured in news and periodical articles, as well as television shows. It seems to be a buzzword that is quickly becoming embedded in popular culture. Many people have heard of it and know that it is a "virtual currency," but what does that mean? What is a virtual currency? What is Bitcoin even good for, and how can you use it? Bitcoin is used in countries all around the world. Some countries, such as Japan and Switzerland, are openly embracing it and supporting it with government policies that accept it. Other countries, such as the United States, are trying to find ways to regulate it, while others, such as China, have entirely banned any transactions that use Bitcoin under penalty of imprisonment. Because it is such a far-reaching global phenomenon - and continuing to grow by the day - anyone would do well to understand exactly what it is. Many people who explore Bitcoin as a curiosity that they want to understand go on to become Bitcoin investors.Bitcoin is safer than many other financial systems because it is not subject to regulation or manipulation and because of its underlying system, blockchain is inherently resistant to hacks and security breaches that plague other financial institutions. However, there have been infamous hacks of Bitcoin wallets in which people lost large quantities of money. Amongst other things, this book will help you know with confidence how you can remain safe and secure on the Bitcoin network.In this book, you will find basic accurate, detailed information that will help you understand what Bitcoin is, how it is currently being used, and how you can use it to accomplish your own needs, wants, goals, and ambitions.
