The book is a compilation of Buterin’s essays on the development of Ethereum throughout the years. The writings were collected from his essays before and during the rise of Ethereum.

The book reveals that while others were interested in watching the price of their tokens rise, Buterin “was working through the problems and possibilities of crafting an Internet-native world.”

Ahead of the launch, people can order a signed digital copy and NFTs. Buterin says that the proceeds from the signed digital copies go 100% to funding good causes.
