Money deceives, even when it’s virtual

BITGLOBAL
Money deceives, even when it’s virtual

One of Italy’s biggest law firms.
Two lawyers fight to become the managing partner.
An investment fund that is full of cash, but needs to find soon something to invest in.
Months of intense searches and finally a discovery: bitcoin, a virtual currency that enables to trade freely, without any bank and any state.
A frantic negotiation between Milan, London, and the island of Jersey.
An acquisition closed down to the wire.
And then?

A novel that has multiple reading keys, marked by a truly breathtaking rhythm, BitGlobal is at the same time an exhilarating thriller, a debunking glimpse on the world of finance and big law firms, a dizzying plunge in the mechanisms of cryptography, and a fascinating analysis of the origins and unresolved contradictions of the current monetary system. A novel in which money, and the mechanisms that govern its circulation, appear to be an epitome of human relationships and of the irrepressible man’s need to believe in something, even at the cost of being deceived.
