      From Tokens to Blockchains – A Journey into immaterial Economy

      • Overview
      • About the author


      This is a long interview with Thomas Bertani, an Italian opinion-maker of the crypto-world, aimed at answering the main questions about cryptocurrency and blockchain technology.

      In 2021, Bitcoin reached a value of over 60,000 dollars per unit. Today, there are about 5,000 cryptocurrencies in the world and international research has shown that 100 million people trade them daily, generating a turnover of 300 billion dollars – almost 100 times the average daily turnover on the Milan Stock Exchange.

      But how do cryptocurrencies work? Is it true that they are used by fraudsters and organised crime?

      This book delves deep into the hottest and most controversial issues surrounding the often misunderstood world of cryptocurrencies; “electronic money” is often identified with the events surrounding the Bitcoin bubble and its allegedly illegal use that has created a sense of mistrust and distrust among many citizens. Nevertheless, the cryptocurrency experiment is still going strong.
