   Extremely well-written, comprehensive and great for non-industry people to read
Laura Shin is a seasoned journalist by the quality and sophistication of this book, even if she is not yet familiar with her podcast or work. In attending an event in which Laura discussed her process for gathering the facts for this book, she mentioned having done 200 interviews over the course of 3 years. Her comprehensiveness shows her comprehensiveness. Like any throughout history, when people were establishing and building a new frontier, the beginning of Ethereum was messy, complicated, and full of drama. Laura has uncovered so much for the rest of us to understand and appreciate in this story. Laura, thank you so much! It was also a great read for anyone not in the industry or super technical. I feel much better informed about how crypto works now after reading this book!

   Well researched and cited book on controversial, historical events
She is an experienced reporter with decades of experience. She has been working on crypto for years and wrote an excellent, thorough book on the early days of Ethereum. Although not everyone is in 100% agreement on its contents, it appears that the community consensus is that it is the best attempt at accuracy for the charged nature of the events and characters found within its pages.

   Ethereum Compendium
I can feel the blood, sweat and tears that went into the Cryptopians, as though all the drama surrounding Ethereum's genesis story has been directed through the author and directly onto these pages. Highly recommended! Highly recommended! ''

   Thrilling Account by Ultimate Narrator
Laura Shin is the historical narrator for this ultimate episode of technology and cryptography. Not only was she one of only a handful of journalists present from the beginning of the story, but she also had the gift of telling a story in a thoughtful and balanced way. This book should be a critical resource for readers eager to understand how the crypto revolution has gained steam and how it may evolve from here. I also suspect that it will become an important historical document.
