Covering different territory is my article in The Journal of Prices and Markets, “Commodity, scarcity, and monetary value theory in light of bitcoin” (published on 24 Feb 2015; direct to PDF). This goes into core economic-theory concepts with applications to bitcoin. It is a thoroughly revised and re-framed version of my earlier, “Revisiting conceptions of commodity and scarcity in light of Bitcoin” (17 Mar 2014) [PDF] [ePub].
Below are links to a selection of my other bitcoin-related writings. In addition, see the neighboring Bitcoin Decrypted page for my comprehensive three-part narrated slideshow series on Bitcoin.
