Golumbia’s “Bitcoin” Book Published

politcs of bitconAssociate Professor David Golumbia’s book, The Politics of Bitcoin: Software as Right-Wing Extremism, has been published by the University of Minnesota Press. The book, the “first comprehensive account of Bitcoin’s underlying right-wing politics,” argues that far-right political theory is not just widespread in the communities around Bitcoin but is built into the software design of Bitcoin, and that Bitcoin and the blockchain serve as surprisingly effective tools for spreading economic and political ideas that until very recently were thought to have been altogether discredited.

Congratulations, David!
