Das ist das Buch des Tages.

Ich erinnere mich noch gut daran, wie meine Eltern das Internet für eine gaaanz gefährliche Sache hielten. Von Spinnern gebaut, ein El Dorado für Hacker und Kriminelle ...

Wenn ein Autor heute noch in einem Buch über Bitcoin et al ernsthaft das Darknet thematisiert , kann man es m.E. getrost ignorieren.

Bitcoin wird den Betrügern langsam zu teuer. Als Zahlungsmittel taugt es nicht mehr. https://krebsonsecurity.com/2017/12/skyrocketing-bitcoin-fees-hit-carders-in-wallet/

Interestingly: Kindle edition is only available in the German store (that I can't order Kindle from). The US carries only the paperback. How quaint

Quaint update: the paperback page didn't list the Kindle edition when searching for the book title. But navigating to the book via the Author page shows the Kindle edition.

Ceci n'est pas un blog

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
