Have a hard time grasping Cryptocurrency and the industry?
Come join us to hear from the Canadian Author and Journalist Ethan Lou to talk about his latest work, Once a Bitcoin Miner: Scandal and Turmoil in the Cryptocurrency Wild West. Ethan will share his first-hand narratives and adventures with the Cryptocurrency world and also his encounters with some of the renowned figures of the field.
Ethan Lou writes widely, including a cryptocurrency column for the Financial Post.
From investing in Bitcoin in university to his time writing for Reuters, and then mining the digital asset ― Lou meets a co-founder of Ethereum and Gerald Cotten of QuadrigaCX (before he was reported dead) and hangs out in North Korea with Virgil Griffith, the man later arrested for allegedly teaching blockchain to the totalitarian state.
Lou examines this domain through the lens of the human condition, delving deep into the lives of the fast-talkers, the exiles, the ambitious, and the daring, forging their paths in a new world harsh and unpredictable.
His previous book, Field notes from a Pandemic, was named among the CBC’s best Canadian nonfiction of 2020 and shortlisted for Kobo’s emerging writer prize.
Lou is a former Reuters reporter and has served as a visiting journalist at the University of British Columbia and he is in Toronto now.
