This is part 11 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 11: Scaling Bitcoin
In this talk, Andreas looks at scaling as an ongoing process. Using examples from the history of the Internet — which has “failed to scale, gracefully, for 25 years” — he discusses the scaling debate and looks at how Bitcoin will scale over the next several years.
This talk took place on on March 22nd 2016 for the Institute of Cryptoanarchy’s Paralelni Polis event in Prague, Czech Republic / Czechia.
