The Infinite Machine (Harper Business)
Friday, 17 July 2020

This book, subtitled How an Army of Crypto-hackers Is Building the Next Internet with Ethereum, tells the story of the rise of Ethereum, the second-biggest digital asset in the world and the growth of cryptocurrency. If covers Ethereum’s chaotic beginnings, and the innovation and reckless greed the platform has unleashed. Financial journalist Camila Russo details the wild and often hapless adventures of a team of hippy-anarchists, reluctantly led by an ambivalent visionary, and lays out how in her opinion this new foundation for the internet will spur both transformation and fraud, and revolutionize our ideas about money.
