Bloomberg Businessweek investigative reporter Zeke Faux has signed a contract with Crown to publish a book about the cryptocurrency explosion.
The book is tentatively called “Untethered.” It will center on the startup Tether, the de factor bank of the crypto world, and the $69 billion that is supposedly backing its “stablecoin.”
Faux has been at Bloomberg since 2010.
His previous series on predatory lending with Zachary Mider won both a Gerald Loeb Award and the 2018 Taylor Family Award for Fairness in Journalism.
Faux has also been a winner of the New York State Society of CPAs award for excellence in financial journalism and a National Press Club award.
He has also been a finalist for a National Magazine Award for reporting and a finalist for the Scripps Howard award for business reporting.
