Wildcat Currency: How the Virtual Money Revolution is Transforming the Economy by Edward Castronova

I bought this book hoping it would be all about Bitcoin and the Dark Web, but Bitcoin is barely mentioned. This book was originally published in 2014 so it was a bit before the Dark Web became what it is today. That being said, this book covers virtual currencies used in gaming, and really explains what money is: the physical component aside, money as a convention between people. It was very interesting reading, and it left me with the profound hope that in the future there will be major monetary systems with no need of state control or sponsorship.
