First and foremost, I am not a blockchain or cryptocurrency expert, nor am I trying to present myself as one. I am someone who is fascinated by blockchain technology and have spent a fair amount of time reading and learning about its potential. Anything you read on CryptoAmbit.com is basically an aggregation of everything I've learned on the subject so far - to see where a lot of my information has come from, check out my resources page.
I first got interested in blockchain when reading The Industries of The Future by Alec Ross. The chapter entitled The Codification of Money contained a segment on Bitcoin and blockchain that together, Ross said, formed a revolutionary new form of internet money with world changing applications.
At the time, Bitcoin was surging from $1,000 to $2,000 per unit which served to further pique my interest. From there, I started reading more and more about this mysterious internet currency and the blockchain technology that enabled strangers on the internet to transact without banks or intermediaries. Before I knew it, I had descended down the ultimate rabbit hole that revealed how these technologies are in the process of transforming finance, governments, and society as a whole.
I hope to help whoever reads this website gain a basic understanding of what blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies are and why they're important. If there are any topics that you would like to see covered or you have feedback on existing posts, feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I also just got on twitter @cryptoambit.
