This is the first book by an interdisciplinary team of social scientists inquiring into the global governance implications of the block-chain technology. Anyone interested in the intersection of technology and global governance will enjoy reading this book. As a bonus, the book will also help you get prepared for a future change in your local ATM machine and for having coffee with lawyers put out of work by self-executing contracts. - Peter J. Katzenstein, Walter S. Carpenter, Jr. Professor of International Studies, Cornell University

"Cryptocurrencies have emerged as one of most important innovation in credit creation in the past decade. The global architecture of cryptocurrencies poses major challenges to monetary policy, financial stability and money laundering control. Academics have been slow to grasp the significance of the cryptocurrency revolution: this book is among the first to provide a thorough, comprehensive and yet accessible examination of the challenges posed by the world of Cryptocurrencies." - Ronen Palan, Department of International Politics, City University London
