Nassim Taleb

Highly improbable events, such as the invention of Bitcoin, are almost impossible to predict. However, Nassim Taleb wrote multiple books on concepts that help to foster a solid understanding of Bitcoin. In short, the invention of Bitcoin is a Black Swan event resulting in an antifragile organism. Miners are “fooled by randomness” to keep it alive, and participation requires skin in the game. Unfortunately, Taleb fails to appreciate the beauty of Bitcoin and currently suffers from Bitcoin Derangement Syndrome.
