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.

Un lucru curios despre asta? O copie a acestui comic a fost vândută la licitație pentru 20,4 BTC în 2015. Prețul provine din faptul că a fost semnat de 105 vedete din cripto-lume, printre care Jeff Garzik, Vitalik Buterin, Andreas Antonopoulos și Roger Ver. Obișnuit, costul of this one is just 5 – 10 USD.

Dumnezeu este un jucător

“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.

Un jucător, un bancher, un politician și un terorist sunt amestecați aici cu Bitcoin și 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.

Vă amintiți când am spus că cineva ar trebui să facă un film cu acest subiect? Ei bine, compania indiană Viacom 18 Motion Pictures a cumpărat deja 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.

V-ați imaginat vreodată un loc care rulează pe deplin pe criptomonede și blockchains? Da, îl cunoaștem pe artistul Akon vrea să construiască acel oraș din Senegal, dar înainte de el (2018), autorul Mark Helfman a scris despre Consensusland, o mică insulă de țară în care totul funcționează cu propria sa criptomonedă.

Quentin Taylor, un antreprenor biomedical, vrea să își construiască propriul sediu de ultimă generație pentru compania sa, and he receives a once-in-a-lifetime offer from the government of Consensusland, who’s investing in foreign startups. Vor să-l finanțeze, dar el trebuie să renunțe la tot ce știa despre semnificația banilor și să se mute în insulă pentru a trăi într-o societate foarte diferită.

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

If you were inside the crypto-world by 2017, you should know it was bonkers. Bitcoin urcând spre lună, Ofertele inițiale de monede (ICO) apar peste tot, Bitconneeeect crește miliarde cu criptomoneda sa suspectă (și cu totul eșuată ulterior) și, în general, cu toată lumea plină de Fear of Missing Out (FOMO).

În acel an magic, unii studenți ar fi putut deveni milionari doar scriind un cod neîndemânatic pentru a crea un nou simbol inutil 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 pe Amazon.


Catcoin: Istoria fictivă a unei criptomonede

“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 este o criptomonedă creată de Catoshi Nakamoto, 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, întreaga lume este perturbată printr-o metodă de plată mai bună.

If you’re into cryptocurrencies, cats and laughs, this is most likely obligatory reading. We can find it pe Amazon, între 3 și 10 USD.

Un colind de criptomonede

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 cu criptomonede? Autorul Jefferson Nunn a considerat că este o idee grozavă, așa că a făcut-o în 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).  

Putem citi gratuit acest poveste clasică amuzantă și plăcută pe Forbes, pentru a avea un Crăciun foarte fericit.


Aceste cărți sunt o modalitate excelentă de a trece prin lucruri precum o lungă carantină, nu? Și, desigur, o ocazie distractivă de a afla despre criptomonede și blockchain fără a depune eforturi minunate.
