"A New York Times technology and business reporter charts the dramatic rise of Bitcoin and the fascinating personalities who are striving to create a new global money for the Internet age. Digital Gold is New York Times reporter Nathaniel Popper's brilliant and engrossing history of Bitcoin, the landmark digital money and financial technology that has spawned a global social movement. The notion of a new currency, maintained by the computers of users around the world, has been the butt of many jokes, but that has not stopped it from growing into a technology worth billions of dollars, supported by the hordes of followers who have come to view it as the most important new idea since the creation of the Internet. Believers from Beijing to Buenos Aires see the potential for a financial system free from banks and governments. More than just a tech industry fad, Bitcoin has threatened to decentralize some of society's most basic institutions. An unusual tale of group invention, Digital Gold charts the rise of the Bitcoin technology through the eyes of the movement's colorful central characters, including a British anarchist, an Argentinian millionaire, a Chinese entrepreneur, Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss, and Bitcoin's elusive creator, Satoshi Nakamoto. Already, Bitcoin has led to untold riches for some, and prison terms for others. Digital Gold includes 16 pages of black-and-white photos"--… (más)

While giving a great account of the early days of Bitcoin and blockchain, the subtle question of true identity of Satoshi Nakamoto does impress throughout the book. More importantly than that, this book allows almost anyone to access the base of information needed to begin digesting the roots and the implications of the blockchain technology. Great place to start, or to expand your knowledge of Bitcoin. And even if you understand it well already, the historical accounts and dramas of the early adopters of Bitcoins are fascinating enough to keep you reading. Thank you for compiling this work and bringing it to us all! ( )

Part adventure, part biography, part true crime - this fascinating look at the initial beginnings of Bitcoin was captivating. A variety of ideals and different personalities come into play in creating a new technology which will be as disruptive in the long term to the financial sector as Amazon has been to consumer retail.

This was a decent overview of part of the story of Bitcoin, with a focus on some of the people involved rather than the technology. It neglected most of the cypherpunks history, as well as the "digital gold currency" movement (which would be complicated, given the title), and missed many of the interesting events even around Bitcoin itself. However, the details of some of the personalities were worth reading, and as a broad overview, it's not bad. ( )

It was after midnight and many of the guests had already gone to bed, leaving behind their amber-tailed tumblers of high-end whiskey.
