The book gives a great insight on why Bitcoin could change our future.
“At the end of the day, bitcoin is programmable money. When you have programmable money, the possibilities are truly endless. ... As I’ve said, there is no third party, there is no counterparty. If I choose to send value from one part of the network to another, it is peer-to-peer with no one in between. If I invent a new form of money, I can deploy it to the entire world and invite others to come and join me. Bitcoin is not just money for the internet. Yes, it’s perfect money for the internet. It’s instant, it’s safe, it’s free. Yes, it is money for the internet, but it’s so much more. Bitcoin is the internet of money."
― Andreas M. Antonopoulos
