'Digital Cash - The Unknown History of the Anarchists, Utopians, and Technologists Who Created Cryptocurrency'

Please join us for the launch of DIGITAL CASH: The Unknown History of the Anarchists, Utopians, and Technologists Who Created Cryptocurrency. Programming will begin at 6:30p in the Internet Archive's Great Room, followed by a reception and book signing. Books will be available for sale onsite.

In DIGITAL CASH (publishing June 25, 2019), Finn Brunton reveals how, since the 1920s, technological utopians and political radicals have turned to experimental money as they key to realizing their visions for the future: protecting privacy, bringing down governments, preparing for apocalypse, and launching a civilization of innovation and abundance that would make its creators immortal. This incredible story of the pioneers of cryptocurrency takes us from autonomous zones on the high seas to the world’s most valuable dump, from bank runs to idea coupons, from time travelers in a San Francisco bar to the pattern securing every twenty-dollar bill, and from marketplaces for dangerous secrets to a tank of frozen heads in Scottsdale, Arizona.
