Samenvatting

Since its introduction in 2009, Bitcoin has been widely promoted as a digital currency that will revolutionize everything from online commerce to the nation-state. Yet supporters of Bitcoin and its blockchain technology subscribe to a form of cyberlibertarianism that depends to a surprising extent on far-right political thought. The Politics of Bitcoin exposes how much of the economic and political thought on which this cryptocurrency is based emerges from ideas that travel the gamut, from Milton Friedman, F.A. Hayek, and Ludwig von Mises to Federal Reserve conspiracy theorists.Forerunners: Ideas First is a thought-in-process series of breakthrough digital publications. Written between fresh ideas and finished books, Forerunners draws on scholarly work initiated in notable blogs, social media, conference plenaries, journal articles, and the synergy of academic exchange. This is gray literature publishing: where intense thinking, change, and speculation take place in scholarship.

Recensie(s)

Golumbia, in his small but important way, is helping wake us to the falsity of our perceived neutrality. --One Flew East This book is a very readable and valuable monograph which combines sound historical research with insightful analysis. All concerned citizens should read this book, which is an essential resource for understanding the true stakes of current technological hyperbole. --Newsclick Golumbia a le m rite de s'attaquer des id es qui ne sont pas suffisamment remises en question dans les communaut s de la cryptomonnaie et des technologies de cha nes concert es. J'en recommande fortement la lecture quiconque s'interroge sur les impacts de ces technologies sur nos soci t s. --D'un bloc l'autre
