Not everything is about trading, difficult concepts, and serious stuff within the crypto-world. There’s a lot of funny and curious things around here, and one of those is the fiction books touching the topic… or the topics. Because they’re not just one: Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, ICOs, the Satoshi Nakamoto mystery, anecdotes, decentralization, parodies…

Some good authors out there have already discovered the infinite possibilities, and they’re taking advantage of it in different fiction formats: novel, comic, tale, and even visuals, but that’s another story. For now, we’re going to show you some entertaining fictional books featuring cryptocurrencies and blockchains. Let’s start!

Bitcoin: The Hunt for Satoshi Nakamoto

Who is Satoshi Nakamoto, the mysterious Bitcoin creator? We don’t know, and that actually could be a movie, because we really, really want to know it. The main characters of this book want it as well since they’re literally in the hunt for Satoshi Nakamoto.

Their biggest suspect is Bob, a beardy geek who’s now pursued by criminal groups and secret services. And he makes us understand why Satoshi prefers anonymity. The comic comes from Alex Preukschat, Josep Busquet, and José Ángel Ares, and was launched in 2014. So, this is probably the first Bitcoin comic in existence.

Zajímá vás to? Kopie tohoto komiksu byla prodána v aukci za 20,4 BTC v roce 2015. Cena pochází ze skutečnosti, že byla podepsána 105 celebrity v krypto-světě, včetně Jeff Garzik, Vitalik Buterin, Andreas Antonopoulos a Roger Ver. Obvykle, náklady of this one is just 5 – 10 USD.

Bůh je hráč

“Enter a world where money means nothing. Martyrs are villains. Predators are prey. And… God is a gamer”. This is how is introduced the book about Bitcoin by the best-seller Indian author Ravi Subramanian. The “Who’s Satoshi” thing is here as well, but there’s more to see in this thriller full of lies, manipulations, deaths, and even explosions.

Zde se mísí hráč, bankéř, politik a terorista s Bitcoin a Darknet, developing a plot where you have to discover who’s pulling the strings from the background. Published in 2014, “God is gamer” has to be one of the firsts fictional books of its kind.

Pamatujete si, když jsme říkali, že by někdo měl natočit film s tímto tématem? Indická společnost Viacom 18 Motion Pictures již koupil the rights for this book and it’s planning to make that movie. At the moment, we can acquire the book for 14 – 16 USD on Amazon.

Consensusland: utopie kryptoměny

Už jste si někdy představovali místo běžící plně na kryptoměnách a blockchainech? Ano, známe umělce Akona chce stavět to město v Senegalu, ale před ním (2018) autor Mark Helfman napsal o Consensusland, malém venkovském ostrově, kde vše funguje s vlastní kryptoměnou.

Quentin Taylor, biomedicínský podnikatel, chce pro svou společnost vybudovat vlastní nejmodernější ústředí, and he receives a once-in-a-lifetime offer from the government of Consensusland, who’s investing in foreign startups. Chtějí ho financovat, ale musí se vzdát všeho, co věděl o smyslu peněz, a přestěhovat se na ostrov, aby žil ve velmi odlišné společnosti.

The author explores this way how it’d be to live with cryptocurrencies and decentralization as normal in every aspect. And you může mít tuto knihu for 3 – 30 USD, depending on the edition.

If you were inside the crypto-world by 2017, you should know it was bonkers. Bitcoin lezení na Měsíc„Počáteční nabídky mincí (ICO) se objevují všude, Bitconneeeect roste miliardy díky své podezřelé (a později zcela selhala) kryptoměně a obecně všem plným Fear of Missing Out (FOMO).

V tom magickém roce někteří univerzitní studenti se mohli stát milionáři pouhým napsáním neohrabaného kódu a vytvořit nový zbytečný token with promises of greatness and aggressive marketing. And that’s the topic of this novel, written by the Welsh author Haydn Wilks.

As Future Synergy Coin becomes a multi-billion dollar enterprise, the lives of Graham, Guus, Alicia, and many others around the world changes radically. Wilks left the question: “With billions of dollars to play for, who will survive the SHITCOIN’s rise?” We can discover it for 8 – 19 USD na Amazonu.


Catcoin: Fiktivní historie kryptoměny

“I can’t wait to fuck Bitcoin in its ass!” is one of the golden phrases you can find in this bizarre, funny, and feline novel by Frank Edler. And not precisely because he hates Bitcoin (the work is dedicated to Satoshi Nakamoto), it’s more because he likes it and wanted to write the story of One, the first Catcoin in existence.

Catcoin je kryptoměna vytvořená Catoshi Nakamotem, an Italian citizen “with Asian features and American sensibilities”. One used to be an alcoholic cat on the streets of Roma, but he became the first Catcoin unit thanks to his new master, Nakamoto. He still loves wine, though. Meanwhile, “Friendships are forged, lovers are loved and Durian fruit is smashed”, and, of course, celý svět je narušen lepší platební metodou.

If you’re into cryptocurrencies, cats and laughs, this is most likely obligatory reading. We can find it na Amazonu, mezi 3 a 10 USD.

Koleda z kryptoměny

Yes, you probably want to save this one for Christmas. As you may know by now, “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens has like thousands of different adaptations to date, it’s a total classic, almost obligatory for the holidays. So, why don’t mix it up s kryptoměnami? Autor Jefferson Nunn to považoval za skvělý nápad, a tak to udělal v roce 2018.

In this version, the reluctant miser is the old Mr. Keynes, owner of his own business, Keynes Investments, and a fervent hater of Bitcoin and technology. The man is just waiting for the crypto to be “dead as a doornail” and he strikes as “toxic” everything not related to making (fiat) money. Then, a ghosty Bitcoin-iPad appeared to him, followed by the Genesis Block (the Ghost of Bitcoin’s past), a Node (the Ghost of Bitcoin’s present), and a self-conscious Artificial Intelligence (the Ghost of Bitcoin’s future).  

Tuto zábavnou a roztomilou klasickou pohádku si můžeme přečíst zdarma na Forbesu, mít velmi veselé Vánoce.


Tyto knihy jsou skvělý způsob, jak projít věcmi, jako je dlouhá karanténa, hm? A samozřejmě zábavná příležitost dozvědět se o kryptoměně a blockchainu, aniž byste vynaložili velké úsilí.
