Princeton University releases Bitcoin textbook

Announcements | February 17, 2016 By:

Princeton University’s first complete draft of the Bitcoin textbook is now freely available online.

Authored by Arvind Narayanan, Joseph Bonneau, Edward Felten, Andrew Miller and Steven Goldfeder, the official version of this book will be published by Princeton University Press during this summer.

“If you’re looking to truly understand how bitcoin works at a technical level and have a basic familiarity with computer science and programming, this book is for you,” said Arvind Narayanan.

In addition, at the end of each chapter, links to other relevant sites have been provided that readers may refer along with exercise questions related to the chapter.

The Princeton University Press owns the copyright of the text, according to Narayanan. However, the contract between the authors and the publisher allows the free distribution of the draft.
