Introduction & Overview to the Book
The following downloadable PDF is the introduction to Gradually, Then Suddenly –A Framework for Understanding Bitcoin as Money. The introduction connects bitcoin's origin–its reason for being–to the Great Financial Crisis, beyond just the timing of its release. And in addition to providing a brief introduction to the basics of bitcoin, it includes my highest level reason and logic to understanding bitcoin as money and an explanation of the tangible problem bitcoin solves for virtually every person alive–the problem of governments and central banks printing money. Lastly, it provides an overview of what to expect from the collective chapters of the book–what the reader should expect to take away if venturing ahead (or more realistically, if you decide to buy the book).
