Publisher's Summary

The Bullish Case for Bitcoin, first published as a long-form article, represents an intellectual tour de force delivered with elegance and prescience by a polymath well-versed in mathematics, computer science, economics, philosophy, politics, and engineering. After March of 2020, it was evident to me that the world needed new money based on technology. However, in February 2018, when Boyapati first published his paper, this insight required much greater perspicacity, courage, and conviction.

In a clear and concise manner, Boyapati presents the theory of money, the anatomy of Bitcoin, the reasons it is superior to the gold and fiat standards that came before it, and the promise that it offers to human civilization. He describes path dependence and the trajectory of a newly monetizing asset in terms the layman can understand, and he addresses the concerns that most commonly arise as newcomers struggle to comprehend the essence and significance of this first digital monetary network. 

I was immediately captivated by "The Bullish Case for Bitcoin" when I first read it, and made it part of the recommended reading for all the officers and directors of my firm as we educated ourselves on Bitcoin and considered the logical path forward. In this book, Boyapati updates and significantly expands on the ideas presented in his original article.

This is the book you give your dad.

While there are necessary technical portions, this book does a great job of outlining the what and why of bitcoin in a way even a non-technically inclined person can understand. The how can be left to more ambitious titles for those that want to learn more. The real life risks are covered thoroughly without any sugar coating (sugar is terrible for you anyway.) If someone ends up buying or not buying bitcoin after reading this book it will be based on complete information and they will have only themselves to blame.

This is the book to give to your friends and family that do not yet understand why you cashed out your 401k early, no longer spend money on lattes and use the term "DCA" as a verb. For now you are just the crazy relative, someday you will be their hero.

Audible version: Vijay's narration is fantastic. Sometimes I like an author-read book and sometimes I don't, but with non-fiction it is often best when the author gives you his own information so that the emphasis can be placed in the right spots. Very well done.

Bullish Case is a great introduction to Bitcoin

Bitcoin information given in explainable terms to make it more accessible to the layperson. To me Bitcoin (and cryptocurrency in general) was a tough to grasp asset class. Vijay described what Bitcoin is, why it has value, and at least for me helped justify why you should own some.

School paper read for an audience

I think the author was a little too excited about crypto currency. there may be good values in having crypto but as we have seen crypto is just another fiat currency and when thinflation hits it doesn't hold value like gold or silver as the author says. I’ve heard many people who are excited about crypto, but the more I learn the more bearish I am towards it.

Qne of the best short intros to Bitcoin

Some historic details a little outdated (ex: Chinese hash power dominance) but overall a very clean, well explained and reasoned summary of the ongoing separation of money and state: Bitcoin.

Highly recommended.
