"Virtual currencies, perhaps most notably Bitcoin, have captured the imagination of some, struck fear among others, and confused the heck out of the rest of us." - Thomas Carper, US-SenatorJoin the technological revolution that has rocked the financial world. But is Bitcoin really an investor's grab-bag? Mastering Bitcoin is your guide through the outwardly complex world of Bitcoin, providing the knowledge you need to cut your slice in the future of money. Whether you're looking into the next killer venture, investing in a startup, or simply curious about the technology, this review by Nakamoto provides essential detail to get you started.Bitcoin is still in its early stages and yet it has already spawned a multi-billion-dollar global economy and forced the financial world to start thinking of transactions in a completely new way. A lot of us give the capacity of storing money, saving money, sending money to others and receive money electronically for granted because we are part of the 50% lucky of the world, but 2.5 billion adults in the world does not have access to bank accounts. A crypto currency can give to millions of people access to having a bank in their pocket through a cell phone, opening commerce to masses of new entrepreneurs and consumers. But, a part from the sociopolitical consequences of the new "currency with wings", if you were to talk about Bitcoin with your grandmother, probably the first thing she would be asking would be "It sounds great up to now ...but how can I use it?? I mean, do I just go up to the grocery store and give them a number or code or something?" Your grandma is right; also learning the basics is essential.This is why Nakamoto's book gives you:-A broad introduction of Bitcoin and its underlying blockchain-ideal for non-technical users, investors, and business executives-An explanation of the technical foundations of Bitcoin and cryptographic currencies -Details of the Bitcoin decentralized network, on Bictoin mining, investing, transactions and how to choose a secure wallet for your Bitcoin, and how to calculate your net income with Bitcoin-An overview on other cryptocurrencies: Litecoin, Ripple, Peercoin, Dogecoin and Ethereum-The limits and risks of the bitcoin system: what does the future hold Download your copy now!

What can we learn from Bitcoin and Burning Man about re-inventing money and designing better forms of self-governance? Why are “decentralized autonomous organizations” the next great Internet disruption? From Bitcoin to Burning Man and Beyond: The Quest for Autonomy and Identity in a Digital Society explores a new generation of digital technologies that are re-imagining the very foundations of identity, governance, trust and social organization. The fifteen essays of this book stake out the foundations of a new future – a future of open Web standards and data commons, a society of decentralized autonomous organizations, a world of trustworthy digital currencies and self-organized and expressive communities like Burning Man. Among the contributors are Alex “Sandy” Pentland of the M.I.T. Human Dynamics Laboratory, former FCC Chairman Reed E. Hundt, long-time IBM strategist Irving Wladawksy-Berger, monetary system expert Bernard Lietaer, Silicon Valley entrepreneur Peter Hirshberg, journalist Jonathan Ledgard and H-Farm cofounder Maurizio Rossi. From Bitcoin to Burning Man and Beyond was edited by Dr. John H. Clippinger, cofounder and executive director of ID3, [http://www.idcubed.org] and David Bollier, [http://www.bollier.org] an Editor at ID3 who is also an author, blogger and scholar who studies the commons. The book, published by ID3 in association with Off the Common Books, reflects ID3’s vision of the huge, untapped potential for self-organized, distributed governance on open platforms. One chapter that inspires the book’s title traces the 28-year history of Burning Man, the week-long encampment in the Nevada desert that have hosted remarkable experimentation in new forms of self-governance by large communities. Other chapters explore such cutting-edge concepts as: • evolvable digital contracts that could supplant conventional legal agreements; • smartphone currencies that could help Africans meet their economic needs more effective; • the growth of the commodity-backed Ven currency; and • new types of “solar currencies” that borrow techniques from Bitcoin to enable more efficient, cost-effective solar generation and sharing by homeowners. From Bitcoin to Burning Man and Beyond also introduces the path-breaking software platform that ID3 has developed called “Open Mustard Seed,” or OMS. https://idcubed.org/open-platform/platform The just-released open source program enables the rise of new types of trusted, self-healing digital institutions on open networks, which in turn will make possible new sorts of privacy-friendly social ecosystems. (YouTube video on OMS.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tMCzibfVo3M “OMS is an integrated, open source package of programs that lets people collect and share personal information in secure, and transparent and accountable ways, enabling authentic, trusted social and economic relationships to flourish,” said Dr. Clippinger.

This landmark publication will bring together a diverse array of artists and researchers engaged with the blockchain, unpacking, critiquing and marking the arrival of it on the cultural landscape for a broad readership across the arts and humanities.
