Blockchain Thoughts and DeFi Economics

Bitcoin and the world - a primer.

About the Book

It's not about getting lucky on bitcoin. It's about learning the foundational elements of money in a context that promotes savings, investment, and understanding of markets. Everything you know about money has been filtered through the lens of consumption as a culture. Blockchain is a new technology that will revolutionize data for decades to come. First up to change is Finance. This book will simplify your relationship with money, introduce you to a major upcoming technological breakthrough with trillions of dollars of financial impacts, and tie it together with an understanding of why and how governments work as economic entities.
