 Michael Casey Biography

Michael Casey is co-author of The Age of Cryptocurrency: a text that explains, with clarity and verve, the concept of cryptocurrency: its origins, its function, and how it impacts everything from government to business to academia. An expert on financial innovation, on global capital markets and economics, and a student of what “money” and “value” really mean, Casey conceives of a new digital society in which software and algorithms will replace our outdated, analog legal systems to bring transparency, objectivity, and integrity to the knowledge-sharing society forming around us. And next year, he releases The Truth Machine: The Blockchain and the Future of Everything​. Co-authored (again) with Paul Vigna, this book offers the ​definitive assessment of blockchain, updated for new market realities—a story of disruption, power, change, and empowerment that will be read by generations to come.

His most recent book is The Social Organism: A Radical Understanding of Social Media to Transform Your Business and Life (co-authored with Oliver Luckett), about how social media behaves just like a living being—and how understanding its form and function can let you navigate the worlds of business, economics, culture, marketing and more with precision and intelligence.

Currently Senior Advisor to the Digital Currency Initiative at the MIT Media Lab, Casey has two decades of experience as a journalist—most recently as a senior columnist at The Wall Street Journal, covering digital currency, global finance, and economics. In addition to co-authoring The Age of Cryptocurrency: How Bitcoin and Digital Money Are Challenging the Global Economic Order—a “timely and colorful book [that] is a rewarding place to learn it all” (The New York Times) and “the most thorough and readable account of the short life of this controversial currency” (The Washington Post)—and hundreds of bylines at WSJ, he has written for Foreign Policy, The Washington Post, The Financial Times and many other publications. He is also the author of two prior books: The Unfair Trade: How Our Broken Financial System Destroys the Middle Class and Che’s Afterlife: The Legacy of an Image.

Speaking Topics
  • The Social Organism: Understanding Social Media as Biology

    Today, we have far less control over the flow, distribution, or quantity of information than ever before. And social media—the most transformative change to communications since the Gutenberg bible—requires a radically new framework to fully understand it. Enter Michael Casey. In his new book The Social Organism, he argues that social media functions much like a living organism, even obeying seven rules of biological life—it mirrors cellular structure, possesses metabolism and homeostasis, grows toward complexity, reproduces, and adapts and evolves. And, Casey argues, this metaphoric framework carries a wide array of practical applications for businesses, organizations, and individuals alike. In this keynote, Casey celebrates the organic spread of information, and offers eye-opening insights into how you can embrace, rather than resist, the zeitgeist. It means moving to an open, decentralized structure, allowing your brand to be adapted and replicated by the public. It means creating worlds other people actually want to build upon. And it means creating the right environment and tools for your customers to become your best ambassadors—getting into people’s heads (and hearts) like never before. With reference to massive brands, memes, online humor, and the new celebrities of the YouTube era, Casey offers a invigorating new way of making sense of the digital world for business leaders, marketers, and everyone else online.

  • The Age of Cryptocurrency: How Bitcoin and Digital Money Are Challenging the Global Economic Order

    Bitcoin became a buzzword overnight. It pops up in headlines and fuels endless media debate. Yet it seems few people truly understand what it is. In this talk, Michael Casey delivers the definitive answer to the question: Why should anyone care about bitcoin? The “blockchain” technology behind cryptocurrencies holds the promise of a financial system without middlemen—a change that’s 500 years in the making. It puts that system in the control of the people who use it and safeguards them from a 2008-type crash. Much more than a new digital form of currency, this technology could integrate billions of hitherto excluded people into the global economy, restore individuals’ control over their private data and identities, and change the way organizations and business relationships are governed. At the corporate, academic, and government levels, well-informed managers and officials are starting to realize that there all sorts of disruptive applications for this technology, with big implications for the broader economy. With lucidity and verve, Casey makes this unfamiliar but important topic accessible, and teaches us what we need to know to be ready for this big shift.
