Resistance Money (Routledge)
Friday, 28 June 2024

This book sets out the case for Bitcoin being 'resistance money', arguing that in an imperfect world of rampant inflation, creeping authoritarianism, surveillance, censorship, and financial exclusion, bitcoin empowers individuals to elude the expanding reach and tightening grip of institutions both public and private. Andrew M. Bailey, Bradley Rettler and Craig Warmke begin by explaining why bitcoin was invented, how it works, and where it fits among other kinds of money. 

<ASIN: 103277780X>

The authors then offer a framework for evaluating bitcoin from a global perspective and use it to examine bitcoin’s monetary policy, censorship-resistance, privacy, inclusion, and energy use.
