Review: Bitcoin Billionaires by Ben Mezrich


In Bitcoin Billionaires Ben Mezrich is less concerned with analysing or prophesying the future of bitcoin and cryptocurrency than turning the story of Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss’ gamble on cryptocurrency and its incredible payoff into turbo-charged, rollicking and riveting entertainment. Rest assured, Mezrich acknowledges the ideological struggle within the Bitcoin community  but the narrative never gets lost in the weeds of this argument. Much like John Carreyrou did in last year’s Bad Blood — turning the Theranos scandal into a non-fiction narrative that read like a thriller — Mezrich’s account of the twins’ astounding speculation and accumulation will earn a wide readership thanks to its accessibility and sheer pace.
