Ed Tejaabout this book: The introduction of cryptocurrency as a medium of exchange and a store of value has changed the world — for good and evil. Its existence alters the way politician can exert control over people and economies. That a person can own it anonymously undermines the ability to track and tax wealth. It is even altering the social fabric.
This political/techothriller explores the ramifications of its implementation and the ways governments and organizations are trying to co-opt it for their own agendas.
The title echoes Ayn Rand's famous book, and the content reframes her ideas in a world where technical superiority means increasingly more. The story shows how governments, which are not inherently innovative, will need to coerce competent people to do their bidding for their implementations to work. It follows the path of one such coder, and shows how he eventually understands what is happening, and the actions needed to preserve freedom in the face of ruthless forces who wish to control nearly everything. One person can't do it all alone.
"Porter and Teja's novel, basically the coder's equivalent of a spy thriller, shows what's at stake if the inevitable digital currency of the future is centralized and not open source..." — Red Savina Review
