Josh Jardens, a former college football star, has retrained as an advisor at a major Canadian bank. Disappointed by the excesses of financial institutions, he discovers a brand-new financial concept, cryptocurrency, via the promotions made by NekoCoin, a new Crypto currency advocating great promises, launched by the magnetic Kristina Orsova. Between faith and fascination, Josh invests his career, reputation, family and friends into the twists and turns of finance 2.0, compromising both his professional and personal life, only to discover the pitfalls and then, the benefits of this New World. Crypto is peppered with action, villains, information and appealing characters.
Loosely based on real life events, Crypto is the story of Everyman s transition into the new prevailing digital currency space. Yet few really grasp the implications. In the line of “The Big Short” meets “Wall Street” — our working man hero, Josh, meets Kristina, the Tech Temptress, which starts a domino effect as the allure of investing into the ’cool* thing, and being part of the ‘CooI’ change sells well. The underlying thematic is people make the wrong choices for the right reasons, and good intentions can pave the path to hell – but learning from one’s mistakes then helps identify the right product!
“CRYPTO” received the Prix Lycéen 2019 from France’s Ministry of Education and of Economy. The High School Student Prize is voted for by 600 students and awarded to a work published in the current calendar year that promotes economic analysis and reflection in a novel way.
