CoinDesk, the leader in blockchain news, is excited to announce the launch of its first-ever essay series, in partnership with author Brian Patrick Eha.
Inspired by his forthcoming book "How Money Got Free: Bitcoin and the Fight for the Future of Finance", the series will seek to explore the technology's major milestones through the eyes of those who lived and shaped these historic events.
Entitled "The Milestones: Bitcoin's Biggest Turning Points", the series debuts today with a piece by bitcoin investor and evangelist Roger Ver on the moment when the digital currency reached parity with the US dollar – and then surpassed it for good.
Future contributors to the series will include Charlie Shrem, Marco Santori and Adam Draper.
'Bitcoin Milestones' will continue to run with new installments each week leading up to Consensus 2017 – our industry-leading blockchain conference, which is expected to draw more than 2,500 attendees to New York from 22nd–24th May.
For more information on Consensus 2017, view our full agenda here.
To preorder "How Money Got Free", visit Amazon. The book will be published in the UK on 6th April and in North America on 9th May.
