Dibbuks and BitcoinComic.org, the publishers of “Bitcoin: The Hunt for Satoshi Nakamoto” present the first graphic novel in the world about Bitcoin.
Written by Alex Preukschat and Josep Busquet and illustrated by José Ángel García Ares, the book skillfully weaves together the action, facts and fictions of the disruptive Bitcoin technology and its anarchic cypherpunk culture. The mystery of Satoshi Nakamoto, the pseudonym of the anonymous creator of Bitcoin, provides the trigger for a wild adventure through an underground filled with criminals, hackers and spooks.
Its 112 pages are filled with powerful illustrations that contain many references to the cryptographic roots of Bitcoin in order to give the audience an insight into the new online digital currency and some of its more curious characteristics. Through a broad cast of characters the book shows a few differing perspectives of this new and pioneering technology while exploring the essential principles which Satoshi Nakamoto developed in the protocol.
“Made in Spain” with great international support
Created, produced and edited in Spain, “Bitcoin: The Hunt for Satoshi Nakamoto” engages readers by mixing the mob, the intelligence services, the media and citizens together in order to explore how each reacts to Bitcoin.
The release of the graphic novel in Spanish has been widely anticipated by the international Bitcoin community and the presale of the English edition raised over $ 20,000 from enthusiastic supporters from all over the world and bitcoin businesses Bitstamp, Coinbase, Chain and Xapo!
The Spanish and English editions of “Bitcoin: The Hunt for Satoshi Nakamoto” will be available in both paper and digital format via Comixology.com. The comic will also be published in Polish.
In addition to the adventures of the characters, the book includes an appendix with the names and descriptions of some of the most important figures in the international Bitcoin community, including those who helped raise funds to help realise the vision. The book makes an excellent gift, and will serve as a unique piece of history in the evolution of bitcoin culture.
