Following the economic crisis of 2008, the website `bitcoin.org' was registered by a mysterious computer programmer called Satoshi Nakamoto. A new form of money was born: electronic cash. Does Bitcoin have the potential to change how the world transacts financially? Or is it just a passing fad, even a major scam? In Bitcoin: The Future of Money?, MoneyWeek's Dominic Frisby's explains this controversial new currency and how it came about, interviewing some of the key players in its development while casting light on its strange and murky origins, in particular the much-disputed identity of Nakamoto himself. Economic theory meets whodunnit mystery in this indispensable guide to one of the most divisive innovations of our time.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Read it and glimpse into the future." -- Sir Richard Branson
"The book's outstanding, but the story it tells is even better." -- Matt Ridley, Books of the Year * The Times *
"A lively, insightful, easy-to-understand guide to an invention that may well change the world." -- James Delingpole, Four star review * Mail on Sunday *
"Frisby is an engaging and witty writer . . . He is to be congratulated for producing an extremely readable guide to a field that might just have radical implications for our financial system." * MoneyWeek *
"[Frisby] does a magnificent job. Even the word `finance' makes me feel queasy, but since reading Bitcoin I have been thinking about money - what it is, where it comes from, how it stores its value, where that value comes from, how it is exchanged - with the same sort of intensity that atheists reserve for their relationship with God." * Spectator *
"Dominic Frisby has gone and done something extraordinary: written a page-turner on the economy." -- James Harding, BBC Director of News and Current Affairs
"A brilliant book - it will do more good than all my speeches in parliament." -- Steve Baker, MP
