I am Andreas M. Antonopoulos, Author of "Mastering Bitcoin" - Ask Me Almost Anything! (IamAMA AMB AMAA!)
I'm Andreas M. Antonopoulos, author of 'Mastering Bitcoin' published by O'Reilly Media. I am a computer geek specializing in security and distributed systems. I've spent the last three years working exclusively in bitcoin, exploring the fascinating world of decentralized digital currencies. I co-host Let’s Talk Bitcoin, teach and frequently speak at technology conferences and local bitcoin meetups.
I am passionate about bitcoin because I believe it is one of the most exciting inventions of the last two decades and is a platform for building de-centralized trusted applications for financial services, commerce and governance. Much more than just a currency, bitcoin is the Internet of Money. Currency is only the first app!
I'll also be talking about bitcoin more at the upcoming O'Reilly Radar Summit 'Bitcoin & the Blockchain'

EDIT: I won't be able to answer any more questions in this AMA. Exhausted. I hope to continue the discussion also on twitter. I am @aantonop. Thank you for all the great questions!
