Fact or Fiction:
"CryptoDad: The Fight for the Future of Money" by J. Christopher Giancarlo provides an overview of the cryptocurrency environment from the perspective of a former Chairman of the United States Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) who had a key role in the debate over Bitcoin ETFs.  Giancarlo is an advocate for the inevitable adoption of cryptocurrencies into traditional market constructs, but his reality was defined by the bureaucracy of a bloated government see-sawing on this critical topic.  This is an insiders perspective, from the heart of government and the regulatory and guidance bodies focused on these issues.  It is an entertaining read, full of great details and the maturation of his current posture on cryptocurrencies and the coming battle for the future of money.
