Ethan Lou is the author of Once a Bitcoin Miner: Scandal and Turmoil in the Cryptocurrency Wild West. At once a personal story of adventure and fortune, the book is also a work of journalistic rigor, a deep dive into a domain that everyone hears about, yet which nobody truly knows. Lou’s debut book, Field Notes from a Pandemic: A Journey Through a World Suspended, was named among the CBC’s best Canadian nonfiction of 2020. He writes regularly in a wide range of publications including the Guardian and the Washington Post. Lou is a former Reuters reporter and has served as a visiting journalist at the University of British Columbia.
