The Bitcoin Standard

One of my favourite books of 2018 without doubt was Saifedean Ammous’ ‘The Bitcoin Standard’.

Probably my favourite release about Bitcoin during the last five years or so as well, it doesn’t even mention Bitcoin itself until you’re near something like page 180 of 280 pages. But if you’re even vaguely interested in economics and cryptocurrency, I’d mark it down as a must-read.

Now I’ve been intending to write an in-depth post about it for a while. And I may well still do that. But in the meantime, thanks to the wonders of Twitter, I came across a incredible tweetstorm by Yorick de Mombynes which pretty much summarises the entire book in 135 tweets!

You can read the full thing here or even better, do it directly on Twitter:
