Journalist Brian Eha will be soon quitting his assistant editing job at Entrepreneur.com to write a book about bitcoin and Silk Road, reports indicate.
The book, titled Walking the Silk Road, is to be published by Penguin Random House — a giant in the industry. The book will feature accounts of what took place in 2013 at the underground ‘dark web’ drug marketplace, notoriously shut down by American feds, who now own the richest bitcoin wallet in the world (a result of the seizure).
“Bitcoin is one of the hottest topics in business today, and its connection with Silk Road makes for a fascinating story,” said Niki Papadopoulos, editor of the book.
Eha says that such a topic “deserves a comprehensive book-length account that will stand the test of time.”
Eha has been writing about bitcoin since 2012, and his work has been featured on the likes of CNNMoney and the New Yorker, along with Entrepreneur.com.
