Investigation into Tether and FTX. If you want to read a book about cryptocurrencies, here’s a good one.

Zeke Faux tries to uncover what’s the deal with the Tether cryptocurrency and whether it is really backed up real assets like a stablecoin is supposed to be. While at it, he learns about NFTs and about how cryptocurrencies enable human trafficking. He also witnesses the downfall of FTX first-hand.

If you want a book about crypto instead of Molly White’s newsletters and Matt Levine’s columns, this is it. Wish he had found out about Tether though.
