The book I've been reading entitled Digital Gold: Bitcoin and the Inside Story of the Misfits and Millionaires Trying To Reinvent Money has elicited some interesting comments from people I've randomly crossed paths with of late. Most recently a couple of real estate agents, after noticing it on a public table I happened to be sitting at, revealed to me that they'd received offers from buyers wanting to purchase their new home in bitcoin. Sadly, in both cases, the agents said they declined in large part because of their lack of understanding of how bitcoin works.
Digital Gold highlights the fascinating, often tumultuous ride of bitcoin and the disruptive influence this titan of the cryptocurrency world is exacting on the future of monetary exchange. It explores in great depth it's promise amid the ongoing struggle many face in getting their arms fully around it. Not since the Internet itself has such a transformative technology been this poised to impact the global economy.
