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.

Je to zvedavá vec? Kópia tohto komiksu sa predala v aukcii za 20,4 BTC v roku 2015. Cena pochádza zo skutočnosti, že ju podpísalo 105 celebrity v kryptosvete, vrátane Jeffa Garzika, Vitalika Buterina, Andreasa Antonopoulosa a Rogera Ver. Zvyčajne náklady of this one is just 5 – 10 USD.

Boh 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.

Mieša sa tu hráč, bankár, politik, 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.

Pamätáte si, keď sme hovorili, že by niekto mal nakrútiť film s touto témou? No, indická spoločnosť Viacom 18 Motion Pictures už kúpil 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: utópia kryptomeny

Už ste si niekedy predstavovali miesto, ktoré beží naplno na kryptomenách a blockchainoch? Áno, známeho umelca Akona chce stavať to mesto v Senegale, ale pred ním (2018) autor Mark Helfman písal o Consensuslande, malom vidieckom ostrove, kde všetko funguje s jeho vlastnou kryptomenou.

Quentin Taylor, biomedicínsky podnikateľ, chce pre svoju spoločnosť vybudovať svoje vlastné najmodernejšie sídlo, and he receives a once-in-a-lifetime offer from the government of Consensusland, who’s investing in foreign startups. Chcú ho financovať, ale musí sa vzdať všetkého, čo vedel o význame peňazí, a presťahovať sa na ostrov, aby žil v úplne inej spoločnosti.

The author explores this way how it’d be to live with cryptocurrencies and decentralization as normal in every aspect. And you môže mať túto 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 lezenie na mesiac„Počiatočné ponuky mincí (ICO) sa objavujú všade, Bitconneeeect zvyšuje miliardy so svojou podozrivou (a neskôr úplne zlyhala) kryptomenou a vo všeobecnosti všetci majú strach zo zmeškania (FOMO).

V tom magickom roku niektorí univerzitní študenti sa mohli stať milionármi iba napísaním neohrabaného kódu na vytvorenie nového zbytočného tokenu 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 Amazone.


Catcoin: Fiktívna história kryptomeny

“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 kryptomena, ktorú vytvoril 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, celý svet je narušený lepšou platobnou metódou.

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

Koleda z kryptomeny

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 kryptomenami? Autor Jefferson Nunn to považoval za skvelý nápad, a tak to urobil v roku 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).  

Túto zábavnú a roztomilou klasickú rozprávku si môžeme prečítať zadarmo na Forbes, mať veľmi veselé Vianoce.


Tieto knihy sú skvelým spôsobom, ako prejsť vecami, ako je dlhá karanténa, hm? A samozrejme zábavná príležitosť dozvedieť sa o kryptomene a blockchaine bez vynaloženia veľkého úsilia.
