“Cryptosovereignty” by Erik Cason is available to pre-order from Bitcoin Magazine and will be released on 8/23/23.
Cryptosovereignty is a collection of writer-analyst-philosopher Erik Cason’s essays exploring the philosophical ideals and intersections of Bitcoin, sovereignty, and cryptography in the 21st century. By approaching Bitcoin as a personal tool of self-sovereignty, Cason’s work evaluates the ontological ideals embedded in Bitcoin and how these ideals will change humanity for the better. When analyzed from the viewpoint of continental philosophy, a whole new way of understanding and thinking about Bitcoin emerges. The result about more than just money. It’s about the real personal power created through the sovereignty of cryptography and a truly independent monetary system.
Erik Cason first started dabbling in Bitcoin in 2012, and in 2013 he joined Coinbase to help get Bitcoin in the hands of as many people as possible. After leaving Coinbase in 2017, he focused on writing essays on the social, political and philosophical aspects of Bitcoin. Today he works as a Bitcoin educator continuing to develop his philosophical approach to Bitcoin and how it will transform the world.
