"The Accidental Billionaires" still on a roll

The book came out eleven years ago but it still draws readers' interest, largely thanks to becoming the basis for the "Social Network" movie released in 2010 and to the impact Facebook currently has on the world and global culture.

The book's narrative was about the creation of Facebook and the legal battle Mark Zuckerberg had with Winklevoss twins Cameron and Tyler over the platform's authorship.

The "crypto twins" received a $65 mln settlement from Zuckerberg and decided to put the money into Bitcoin, which later turned them into Bitcoin billionairesthat's the title of the next book by Mezrich, which is about to be released in fifteen countries, including China, Japan and Europe.

"Bitcoin Billionaires" Author Says Facebook Is "Fundamentally More Disruptive" for Now

On the Guardian's Top 10 book list

Ben Mezrich took to Twitter to share the Guardian's book list and share that his brainchild is in position #5.

When writing the book, Mezrich interviewed many people who, one way or another, witnessed the creation of the biggest and most influential social media platform, Facebook, or was linked to its creation.

However, Mark Zuckerberg declined Mezrich's request for an interview.

Previously, when Mezrich was asked on Twitter if he considered Bitcoin or Facebook to be more disruptive today, he named Facebook.

He added, though, that Bitcoin has great potential to change the world in the near future.
