Finally! A simple yet extensive guide to the new form of money - the digital money of the future.
In the past several years, the rise of Bitcoin and a number of other cryptocurrencies have engendered much discussion (and consternation) in the business and tech worlds. While many have embraced the new currencies and the possibilities they offer, many others have issued dire warnings about the possibility for crime and hidden transactions.
In this timely book, R. S. Tumber takes a broad look at cryptocurrencies and at how they function. He begins with an overview of financial transactions and the characteristics that make cryptocurrencies unique. He goes on to discuss the implications for crime and the law, and examines current cryptocurrency legislation. The final chapter looks at the future of cryptocurrency and its myriad possibilities.
