Proof of Work offers an insight into the world of blockchain and the people driving it. In the cryptocurrency boom of 2021-2022, I embarked on a year-long journey to explore the world of miners, investors, and early adopters of digital currencies. The resulting book captures the individuals and places of the crypto scene, from small basement prospectors and industrial mining farms in Russia to high-tech, sustainable factories in Sweden.
