You’d think cryptocurrency would appear more in fiction considering how popular it is irl. So instead of cyberpunk, have cryptopunk? Which sounds like cyberpunk written by a hedge fund manager with 1.5 million in bitcoin irl.

inb4 crypto bros dont read books.

But crypto bros do play video games right?

Not sure if this is the right sub for this, let me know!

You want to read about dystopias where scammers scam wanna be scammers? Sorry, but this is indeed a bit too close to the sad reality to be an interesting plot device.

In fiction cryptocurrency coukd absolutely be used for better purposes, like avoiding tracking of money transfers. But that would be relayively abstract, and not make for a good story. I mean most fiction doesnt even have different currencies per nation, just a single global one.
