For more than three years, I’ve been working on a book that dives into the history of Ethereum and the 2017 ICO craze. Working on this book has been the most fun and rewarding experience of my career, and I’m excited to share it with you. The book is called The Cryptopians: Idealism, Greed, Lies, and the Making of the First Big Cryptocurrency Craze, and it’s available for order now.
The Cryptopians tells the tale of the early tensions and power struggle that defined Ethereum’s founding, gives the inside story of the DAO, which created the young network’s first existential crisis, and depicts 2017’s global initial coin offering tidal wave that boosted prices — and the fortunes of a few.
If you’re looking for a page-turning story that, along the way, helps total newbies understand crypto, this is it. If you want to know what really happened in the DAO saga as well as in the Ethereum Foundation, here’s your next read. There’s something in here for both normies as well as OGs.
Even though I’ve covered crypto for six years, I uncovered all kinds of secrets and was able to shed light on enduring mysteries.
The Cryptopians came out February 22, 2022. Again, order your book now (whether as a hardcover, ebook, or audiobook), and share it with friends, family, and anyone who loves an enthralling tale. You can also read the crypto glossary published at the end of the book right here on our website.
