    Inhaltsangabe

    When a pseudonymous programmer introduced “a new electronic cash system that’s fully peer-to-peer, with no trusted third party” to a small Online mailing list in 2008, very few paid attention. Ten years later, and against all odds, this upstart autonomous decentralized software offers an unstoppable and globally-accessible hard money alternative to modern central banks. The Bitcoin Standard analyzes the historical context to the rise of bitcoin, the economic properties that have allowed it to grow quickly, and its likely economic, political, and social implications. 

    While bitcoin is a new invention of the digital age, the problem it purports to solve is as old as human society itself: transferring value across time and space. Ammous takes the listener on an engaging journey through the history of technologies performing the functions of money, from primitive systems of trading limestones and seashells, to metals, coins, the gold standard, and modern government debt. Exploring what gave these technologies their monetary role, and how most lost it, provides the listener with a good idea of what makes for sound money, and sets the stage for an economic discussion of its consequences for individual and societal future-orientation, capital accumulation, trade, peace, culture, and art. Compellingly, Ammous shows that it is no coincidence that the loftiest achievements of humanity have come in societies enjoying the benefits of sound monetary regimes, nor is it coincidental that monetary collapse has usually accompanied the collapse of a civilization. 

    With this background in place, the book moves on to explain the operation of bitcoin in a functional and intuitive way. Bitcoin is a decentralized, distributed piece of software that converts electricity and processing power into indisputably accurate records, thus allowing its users to utilize the Internet to perform the traditional functions of money without having to rely on, or trust, any authorities or infrastructure in the physical world. Bitcoin is thus best understood as the first successfully implemented form of digital cash and digital hard money. With an automated and perfectly predictable monetary policy, and the ability to perform final settlement of large sums across the world in a matter of minutes, Bitcoin’s real competitive edge might just be as a store of value and network for final settlement of large payments - a digital form of gold with a built-in settlement infrastructure. 

    Ammous’ firm grasp of the technological possibilities as well as the historical realities of monetary evolution provides for a fascinating exploration of the ramifications of voluntary free market money.

    A little too detailed

    The Bitcoin Standard is a great book, I would consider it as the standard reference if you want to understand Bitcoin. The book describes everything about the history of money, the fault in the fiat money system, until the rise of Bitcoin in very high detail, probably a little too detailed. Some parts sound like they repeat what has already been said. Nevertheless very recommendable.

    Mogelpackung

    Hört sich bei Audible niemand die Hörbücher an um festzustellen ob der Titel des Hörbuches mit dem Inhalt übereinstimmt? Nach dieser Mogelpackung sehe ich als neuer Nutzer Audible mit anderen Augen.
    Außerdem ist die Überheblichkeit mit der J.M.Keynes vom Autor kritisiert wird unerträglich , vollkommen unwissenschaftlich, gerade zu dreist.
    Kein seriöser Ökonom würde eine alternative Denkschule auf diese Art durch den Dreck ziehen.
    Von diesem Autor gibt es nicht viel zu lernen, außer den Fehlern die man selbst vermeiden sollte.

    A must read

    Absolutely loved it! Some knowledge in economics may help to understand the described concepts easier but i think it is also understandable for those without any experience or knowledge in that area.

    inkl. Geschicht über das geldsystem

    Für meinen Geschmack zu weit ausgeholt in Richtung geldsystem und zu wenig über den Bitcoin selbst.

    nicht akademisch

    Detaillierte Erzählung der Geschichte des Geldes und klare Präsentation der Argumente. Aber einen anderen Ökonomen immer wieder persönlich anzugreifen macht auch sonstige klare Argumentation kaputt.

    Abstruse Kausalketten werden dann genutzt um Keynes alles schlechte, bis zu zunehmende mentale Erkrankungen in die Schuhe zu schieben. Das lässt einen dann auch an den sonstigen, eigentlich logisch klingenden, Argumenten zweifeln.

    Written by a Bitcoin Maxi

    Useful historical information and motivation of the monetary system written by a BTC maxi with way too strong opinions, who dismisses all other cryptocurrency projects and use cases as worthless due to lack of (technical) knowledge and/or narrow horizon. Having forced this upon oneself does has its merits, though
