Bitcoin, the brainchild of Satoshi Nakamoto, is as unfathomable as its elusive creator. Is it an instrument of exchange, like currency notes, or is it an investment tool? While many of us could still be grappling with the concept of cryptocurrency, fortunes have already been built and lost; lives have been impacted and, in some cases, ruined in this whole new uncharted universe of digital money. Piecing together published information from various sources, The Bitcoin Dystopia: The Prelude offers a bird’s eye view of the current state of affairs with regard to cryptocurrency and the larger world in which it is situated. At the same time, the book makes a bold prediction about the future of the world through a provocative storytelling approach that is atypical of non-fiction. Bitcoin is unorthodox and any attempt to grasp its impact should be anything but conventional.
