An understanding of how Bitcoin is changing the future of finance, and even the nature of the Internet itself, is mandatory for anyone looking to invest in or prepare for new trading platforms. Uniquely, The Bitcoin Big Bang emphasizes the technological underpinning of Bitcoin – the “blockchain.”
Whether Bitcoin is or isn’t a legitimate currency is, according to Brian Kelly, next to irrelevant.
With its ability to record every Bitcoin transaction and securely transfer value over insecure networks,
the blockchain is a game changer.
Ultimately, The Bitcoin Big Bang answers one of the most pressing questions in finance, business, government, and beyond: “What is Bitcoin and how will it change the world?”
It is a story of evolution.
It is the evolution of currencies, payment systems, how money is used, financial services, and even the way business is organized. It is that moment when you realize the world has changed, permanently and forever. Evolution is a laborious grind, until BANG – everything changes at once.
Eventually mainstream products, companies and industries emerge to commercialize it; its effects become profound; and later, many people wonder why its powerful promise wasn’t more obvious from the start. What technology am I talking about? Personal computers in 1975, the Internet in 1993, and – I believe – Bitcoin in 2014. ~ Marc Andreessen, inventor of the Web browser and cofounder of Netscape
