The Reasonable Case for Bitcoin
As an economist as well as online entrepreneur and investor who specializes in exotic assets such as domain names and cryptocurrencies (I run the One Minute Economics YouTube channel), I feel I’m in a reasonably good position to write a no-bs book which puts Bitcoin under the microscope.
Simply because I am able to put a compelling combination between book and street smarts on the table. With my career hopefully speaking for itself in that respect.
From writing a Wall Street Journal as well as USA Today bestseller (The Age of Anomaly) and creating the world’s most effective economic education encyclopedia (One Minute Economics, with videos that received attention at the highest levels of academia, including “household names” such as MIT and Oxford) to running businesses and actively investing, I have proverbially been there and done that.
To enough of a degree, I might add, to meaningfully “get” the context we find ourselves in and the role Bitcoin deserves to play in this equation. Make no mistake, Bitcoin is still an experiment. And, thus, subject to… yes, failure. With blissfully ignoring the mere possibility thereof not being conducive to making any of Bitcoin’s problems go away. Instead, why not deploy maturity and actually tackle them? In an intellectually honest manner, no less!
In a world where folly became virtue, yes, being reasonable seems downright out of place! How dare you not pick a side? Or embrace a “centrist” viewpoint instead of making it about us vs. them? Polarization has become the new normal. And in such an environment, from “real” world to crypto space, balance is frowned upon or even downright persecuted.
Yet, for the (many) reasons outlined throughout this book, it is precisely a much-needed dose of pragmatism that is required to truly take Bitcoin to the next level. Unfortunately, the Bitcoin community has morphed into a peculiar cult-like parallel dimension where there is little room for anything even remotely perceived as dissent. I am here to help.

I know I’ll be receiving criticism across the board for writing this book. Perma-skeptics will call me excessively optimistic, “moonboys” will call me excessively pessimistic. C’est la vie. It’s a book which needed to be written. And not only that, it needed to be written precisely in the manner I’ve done it.
Love it or hate it, please at least be willing to take my perspective into consideration :)
