This is part 9 of the Internet of Money series I’ve been posting.
I’ve been reading one of Andreas Antonopoulis’ books “The Internet of Money.” As I am reading it, I am understanding the underlying fundamentals of bitcoin/cryptocurrencies in a much more real-world context. Bitcoin is not just digital money- it’s an underlying technology than enables human behavior in a way we’ve not had, on a scale we’ve not had…ever. It is these reasons that gets me so excited for bitcoin. It is not only an expression of value, it is an expression of human sovereignty and cooperation that allows for anyone, and everyone, to participate, and in a non-coercive way.
The book is composed of individual talks Andreas gave, and many of them have an accompanying video. I will be sharing these in a series of posts.
Enjoy, and be well, Everyone. Go bitcoin.

From Chapter 9: Money as a Content Type
In this talk, Andreas discusses the evolution of technology along a “grand arc”, from grandiosity, to… grandparents. He also looks at how bitcoin expresses money as a content type, changing the nature of payments into a form of generic communication. This talk was delivered on November 29th 2014 for the BitcoinSouth conference at the Millennium Hotel in Queenstown, New Zealand.
