Bitcoin and the future of money

Image of item
Book
Bitcoin first appeared in 2009. The digital currency can be nearly anonymous and it can be traded internationally, without the fees, government regulation, and bank oversight of paper money. But Bitcoin is still risky. Its value fluctuates wildly. More than $400 billion of it disappeared overnight with the fall of a single trading exchange. How is that possible? And why is it so popular? CNNMoney reporter Jose Pagliery explains how Bitcoin works and why it matters.
