it was amazing

I was worried that the book would already be outdated, but it was just an origin story and a stellar one at that. However, I would really love an update given the insanity that is the bitcoin and ICO market today. A lot of the book was coverage of silk road stuff, which I had already read in Kingpin (an excellent read) and I have been following the industry for years so I knew about most of the major events. However, Popper was so even-handed about the potential and shortfalls of bitcoin and blockchain amidst such breathless other books and pitches and white papers these days that it was really nice to just read a straight story.

Rich W Great recommendation. I just finished and loved it. It was in my queue but I moved it near the top of the list when I read your review.
