Bitcoin Is Venice
Essays on the Past and Future of Capitalism
What would it seem like if it did seem like a global, digital, sound, open source, programmable money was monetizing from absolute zero?
Allen Farrington and Sacha Meyers chart a crash course through the errors of modern economic theory and the world's broken fiat currency system with a hopeful destination: Bitcoin Is Venice. What if a global, digital, sound, open-source, programmable currency was monetizing from absolute zero? What might economies look like under a Bitcoin standard that pushes beyond Hernando de Soto’s abstraction of 'capital' as 'economic potential energy?' What might this new form of capital do to our current governing bodies? Can Bitcoin bring about a new global Renaissance? With Farrington and Meyers, the discussion is as revolutionary as the answers.
