Our Money Is Broken
Why Bitcoin Is The Solution
Our money is broken. For a growing group of people it is becoming increasingly difficult to build wealth. They start their careers with a hefty student debt. Houses have become unaffordable. There is no longer interest to be earned on savings.
Worldwide, billions of people live under financial censorship and have to contend with high inflation. Their bank accounts are closed because they stand up for minorities or support the opposition. Or they work overseas and have to pay outrageous fees to send their wages to their families back home. Bitcoin could be part of the solution. This radical new money system is ideally suited to a digital future. It is programmable money, an open protocol that anyone can build applications on.
The authors do not guarantee that bitcoin will be a success. In fact, they are clear about the many kinds of ways in which it can fail. But they also see the ways it can succeed and transform the world.
