Andreas M. Antonopoulos
Andreas M. Antonopoulos is one of the world’s foremost bitcoin experts. He is an author, speaker, educator, and cryptocurrency expert who brings a deep understanding of blockchain technologies to diverse audiences around the world.
In 2014, Antonopoulos authored the groundbreaking book Mastering Bitcoin (O’Reilly Media, 2014), widely considered to be the best technical guide ever written about the technology. His second book, The Internet of Money (Merkle Bloom LLC, 2016)—which explains the technology’s potential impacts on human civilisation—was a bestseller on Amazon. The much-anticipated, second volume of The Internet of Money will be released in the late fall of 2017 with the publication of his fourth book Mastering Ethereum (O’Reilly Media, 2018) following swiftly behind in the spring of 2018.
As a global citizen, Antonopoulos is a highly sought-after public speaker who is known for delivering electric talks that combine economics, psychology, technology, and game theory with current events, personal anecdote, and historical precedent—effortlessly transliterating the complex issues of bitcoin technology out of the abstract and into the real world. He is an expert who has been interviewed on the BBC, Bloomberg Business, CNN, The Economist, Forbes, and Motherboard/VICE; a widely published author of articles and blog posts on bitcoin; a permanent host on the popular Let’s Talk Bitcoin Podcast; and a frequent speaker at technology and security conferences worldwide.
