Yet few people understand its enormous potential. Enter Michael Casey. He’s the Senior Advisor to MIT’s Digital Currency Initiative and co-author of The Age of Cryptocurrency—“the most thorough and readable account of the short life of this controversial currency” (The Washington Post).
Casey is the co-author of The Age of Cryptocurrency: How Bitcoin and Digital Money Are Challenging the Global Economic Order—a “timely and colorful book [that] is a rewarding place to learn it all” (The New York Times). An expert on both cybermoney and the global economy, Casey speaks on the increasing overlap of the two fields.
Currently Senior Advisor to the Digital Currency Initiative at the MIT Media Lab, Casey has two decades of experience as a journalist—most recently as a senior columnist at The Wall Street Journal, covering cybercurrency, global finance, and economics. Casey has also written for Foreign Policy, The Washington Post, and The Financial Times, and is the author of The Unfair Trade: How Our Broken Financial System Destroys the Middle Class and Che’s Afterlife: The Legacy of an Image.
