Having some free time, I started reading Daemon by Daniel Suarez. I think it was published in 2009 and it's a very good read imo, reminiscent of Michael Crichton. It's about a CEO of a gaming company who is dying but leaves behind a daemon that starts to infiltrate systems and companies around the world. But there are definitely parallels to the way bitcoin was started and is spreading. I haven't finished it yet and there's a sequel. His next book is about drones. If you haven't read it and you have some time, I would recommend it.

Cool, if you liked Crichton and technology you should give it a try. The guy knows how to write. It took around 50 pages and then it started to draw me in.
