This book will be a compilation of content provided by the leading participants in the digital currency ecosystem. It will be prefaced by a foreword, include a brief summary of Bitcoin's history, a primer on how it works, and followed by a summary that includes detailed reference material and data appendices. The book will offer a concise, comprehensive look at the state of affairs across the ecosystem right now, not another pie-in-the-sky, fluff-filled diatribe about how Bitcoin means we no longer need the Federal Reserve. The experts we feature will come from across the four pillars of the digital currency ecosystem:
- Companies -- startups disrupting the status quo across a number of industries, established firms adopting digital currency, and companies developing bitcoin 2.0 applications.
- Investors -- Venture capital executives, traders, institutional finance professionals, and Fintech entrepreneurs.
- Technology -- programmers developing the protocol, mining, blockchain, bitcoin 2.0, sidechains, etc. Digital currency is inherently data-rich, so application development is extremely active.
- Legal & Regulatory -- individuals from state and federal agencies & private-practice law firms laying the groundwork for regulation and legal parameters.
