Today’s post on the Who’s Who section of Crypto.BI is about Andreas Antonopoulos, a British born author, speaker and Bitcoin advocate. He was born in the UK but was raised in Greece, where he still lives and teaches about Digital Currencies.
Antonopoulos wrote the highly acclaimed Mastering Bitcoin book, published by O’Reilly. One of the reasons for the immense success of this text is the simplicity with which he explains complex concepts, a capacity that has become a trademark of his on his own talks and in social media Q&A sections and conversations with his followers. Antonopoulos’ technically explanatory videos are a major source of easily accessible technical information about Bitcoin both to experts and beginners alike.
Andreas Antonopoulos also gained notoriety several years ago by making correct predictions about the technical risks involved in Mt. Gox which later went bankrupt due to technical failures. He’s been engaged for technical debates by Bitcoin’s top minds and the public has always come out as the big winners in such debates.
