Re: Kraken Crypto?
China Miéville reference?
(I've enjoyed all of Miéville's novels, but Kracken is particularly suitable for people who haven't read his work and might want to try it out. Like King Rat it's set in contemporary London, so the reader isn't dropped wholesale into a fantasy world; but it's a more mature and developed novel than King Rat. Nothing about cryptocurrencies in it though.)
