    Internet of Money Vol. 2 summarizes the latest changes in technology. As author himself put’s it, to keep up with the technology is almost impossible, especially since the rate of change is accelerating. Immensity of the change is hard to grasp, unless you start to consider it. I definitely recommend to this to everyone who is interested in participating the world of tomorrow. Technology grants us power, it’s up to us to learn to how to use it virtuously. Possibilities are exciting! My favorite pi Internet of Money Vol. 2 summarizes the latest changes in technology.

My favorite picks from the book: - “Bitcoin is not the money of the physical space, it is the money of the internet. Bitcoin is not the money of the nation - state ; it is the money of the world.” - “Bitcoin is not the money of the current generation; it is the money of the generations to come.” This book is a must read for anyone who wants to be a positive change in the world.

    The volume of the series repeats a lot of knowledge shared in the first volume. Normally it would be a negative, but since bitcoin brings a lot of different approaches to our day to day lives and changes so many ways that felt they were always the way they are now, this repetition of informations is needed in order to let the knowledge settle a little bit. The second volume also brings a bit more technical view into the bitcoin and introduces some differences between bitcoin and ethereum.

    Context: Continuation of Volume One. Storytelling pitch via the formula of everyday metaphor, extrapolated to Bitcoin, to convey a key message, per chapter. Liked: Liken this to Bitcoin 302, using my previous analogy. Expanding beyond basic BTC to ETH and highly simplified explanations of complicated developments in the crypto space. As with the previous volume, Mr. Antonpoloulos is brilliant at projecting what the future may look like with mass implementation of blockchain technologies.

As with the previous volume, Mr. Antonpoloulos is brilliant at projecting what the future may look like with mass implementation of blockchain technologies. Disliked: Implied anti-bank, and almost anti-government stance. There is truth to his words, but unbalanced. It is as likely that centralized blockchain may be the solution. Successfulness of adopting a centralized vs decentralized solution is highly dependent on the values of the peoples adopting it. Not just these people are the die-hard bitcoin advocates, or investment bankers, or the common folk in between - but the whether these are western "speak up for myself and my rights folks" vs eastern "for the good of our society" like Japan, just as western best practices may not work entirely in the East because of culture. Highly look forward to research in this area, as bitcoin will be as much of a cultural movement as it is a technological movement. Conclusion: Like a complicated novel condensed to Netflix for mass consumption. Not entirely as bad as it sounds, as it gets the salient points across. Looking forward to the next one.

    I love this simple book, and its predecessor. During this "bear" market in crypto, it really reminds me of WHY I've been so deeply drawn to Bitcoin and just a few other cryptocurrencies as investments because the technology is inevitably so much better than any system of money we currently have in the era of the internet, big data, and big government, and quantitative easing (arbitrary inflation from arbitrators of our money, the federal reserve). We will have digital money. Some will profit hug I love this simple book, and its predecessor.

We will have digital money. Some will profit huge from long term holding. Learn and invest wisely.

    This book, and the original 'The Internet of Money' are absolutely worth the time to read for anyone interested in understanding the basic implications of the monumental shifts that are coming in our perspective of money and trust. if you are new to the space, I strongly recommend the first book. Volume Two builds upon this foundation and goes more in depth about the infrastructure that is rising in this new and incredible system.

    The content is repetitive on his mantra of the bad money. He took a few communist economies and the way they roughly rule their fiat money as a most typical example of a bad money. Many contents aim at the political matters. Those are what I wouldn't look for a book of a disruptive technology. The content is repetitive on his mantra of the bad money.

Andreas provides various examples about how this technology can be misapplied, and how institutions are trying to centralise it; an interesting desire seeing as one of the core design principles that allows bitcoin is its decentralised nature (although of course a centralised blockchain has applications too, such as Walmart's product delivery tracking system). There is not too much to say on this book; as it is a written account of talks done by Andreas where much of the content is interesting but not as consistent to a thread in a normal book that is designed as a single entity. Moreover, the fast changing nature of this industry makes some of what Andreas says outdated. Nonetheless, it is still a very interesting and useful read for people interested in bitcoin or blockchain based technology more generally.

    This book was part of the recommended reading list in a introductory course on the algorithms and process of the blockchain. Slightly better in terms of content with respect to the first volume, it's still mostly just an "ok" book on the subject appropriate only for the absolute beginner to the subject. The talk on exploits against bitcoin was probably the best content in the book, though just like the precious volume, one could find a superior treatment to this in "The Book of Satoshi".

    Andreas does a great job of coming up with vivid images and strong analogies that can help people understand issues. I'm not sure the format of transcribing speeches makes for the best book. There were a couple of great tidbits, but I didn't feel the book as a whole moved me very much. When talking to beginners, I always recommend they pay attention to Andreas and this is a good, quick treatment of a handful of topics.

    It is such a great book for people who just got into cryptocurrency. I, myself is a beginner and the content of the book is easy to understand as it uses simple words in explaining the internet of money, cryptocurrencies, bitcoins, etc. It is basically a compilation of speeches/talks which makes it even simpler and if you are a beginner and do not have enough knowledge about how money works digitally, I suggest you to read it from the very beginning.

    Great collection of talk transcripts. Although they are already several years old (which in terms of Bitcoin and cryptocurrency history is an eternity), Antonopoulos addresses fundamental points about money, information, etc, which are holding up just fine and are still completely relevant. There is some overlap between the talks, but definitely worth a read if you are curious about possible implications of the Bitcoin/crypto revolution.

    Andreas is my favourite bitcoin communicator and this collection of (edited) speeches does not disappoint. More anti-govt/banks than part one, it seems as though Andreas’ views have become further entrenched and validated with time. And that’s infectious. Whether you are a libertarian or not, the distributed ledger is going to change the planet... and you should let Andreas tell you why.

    Satoshi Nakamoto stole money from the state. Not in a direct sense, but metaphorically. Andreas will rob you of your ignorance, myths, and everything else you don't understand about Bitcoin, Ethereum, and cryptocurrencies. His books and speeches are a red pill. Be careful. There's a risk is that your life may never be the same. Satoshi Nakamoto stole money from the state. Not in a direct sense, but metaphorically.

    Andreas was very clear on this volume that he was adding more normative thoughts, a programmer by trade he is now a full-fledged cryptoeconomist that helps consumers/users of the network look at problems from different perspectives. An awesome book

    While this retreads some of the ground covered in the first volume, there was a substantial amount of new content here, and I found the section on proof-of-work as "staked electricity" to be powerfully elucidating with regard to the true purpose of mining in a PoW-based consensus algorithm.

    Part two from The Internet of Money. Continued with talks on economics and technology. Looking forward to finding the author's videos and talks on Youtube! I missed hearing that part on the first volume. Part two from The Internet of Money. Continued with talks on economics and technology.

    Volume 1 contained much more valuable insights into Bitcoin in my opinion. The part about lightning network & the FAQ were a very nice touch though. If you are an (internet) entrepreneur and interested in finance; you should really get into these books, they spark so many ideas.

    Good Follow-up to Vol 1 Volume 1 is great. This one comes up a little short of great since it goes deeper into the technicals. Very interesting but not as widely appealing as Vol. 1.

    After reading Volume One, I banged this one out in two days. Like Volume One, it's a great read. The biggest issue is it had a lot of repeats from Volume One.

    So much improvement from Volume one. This actually helped pinpoint the reason bitcoin is disruptive for me, definitely worth the read.

    This book reminds us we must not buy into the bullshit of a non-open and permissioned blockchain. It is just a database!

    Good to read, better to watch This book and the other are good supplements to the video - as they’re intended. Good background and some clever concepts / ideas.

    Same as the first volume, we need to hear the message again and again, to embrace it. Cryptocurrency is a new upcoming technology that will stay with us and will change our future.
