This paper provides an overview of the literature on Bitcoin as presented from the three perspectives of Austrian, Marxist and post-Keynesian. It finds that neither of these theories provides a sufficient framework for explaining Bitcoin as these perspectives are limited in their attention to Bitcoin as a subject for analysis, but that the different approaches can be used to address the weaknesses of the others. Thus, this paper concludes that Bitcoin is beyond the scope of the presented theories and presents new challenges for the established schools of thought.
