The Bitcoin Standard
Available in 20 languages, The Bitcoin Standard: The Decentralized Alternative to Central Banking has been described as “a subversive introduction to Austrian economics, with a savage take-down of Keynesian economics, wrapped in an argument for the hardest money ever made, disguised as confirmation bias for hodlers.”
Applying the book’s concepts to understanding questions on Bitcoin’s energy consumption, Bitcoin scaling, how to kill Bitcoin, what Bitcoin offers the developing world, Bitcoin’s monetization scenarios, how Bitcoin reacts to financial crises, and the connection between easy money, time preference, soil quality, nutrition and health.

Dr. Saifedean Ammous
Saifedean Ammous is an economist and author focusing on bitcoin, who authored the first academic book on the economics of bitcoin, The Bitcoin Standard: The Decentralized Alternative to Central Banking, published by Wiley in 2018. This website is intended to showcase Dr. Ammous’ research in studying the economics of bitcoin, and nothing in it should be construed as investment advice. Bitcoin is a highly volatile and risky asset whose future is uncertain, and whose ownership requires an understanding of complex technologies and tools. Before deciding whether to invest in bitcoin, you should do your own extensive research into the financial and technical aspects involved. Nothing written in this website should be considered advice related to that decision.
