Mastering Bitcoin: Programming the Open Blockchain (Andreas M. Antonopoulos)

This book serves as your guide through the intimidatingly intricate world of Bitcoin and arms you with the information necessary to engage in the internet of money. This updated and extended second edition offers crucial information to get you started whether you're creating the next big app, investing in a business, or are just interested in technology.

It provides all the information you require to participate in one of the most exciting financial revolutions since the development of the internet. The first successful digital currency is Bitcoin. Instant, universal, frictionless, and revolutionizing the way money is used for all time. Even though Bitcoin is still in its infancy, it has already given rise to a $2 billion economy that is expanding exponentially. Investors are supporting a swarm of new firms looking to stake claims in a new industry that may equal the Internet in terms of scope and impact on daily life. Established corporations like PayPal are considering integrating bitcoin as a payment mechanism.

This book is required reading if you want to know more about how bitcoin works technically or if you're creating the next big bitcoin killer app or business. This book will teach you how to create money, from using a bitcoin wallet to buy a cup of coffee to managing a bitcoin marketplace with hundreds of thousands of transactions to jointly developing new financial breakthroughs that will revolutionize how we think about money and credit. The API to a new economy is about to be unlocked by you. Your key is this book.

This book is meant to serve as a technical professional's reference work, a self-study manual for bitcoin business owners, and a textbook for college courses on bitcoin and digital currencies.
