What would you do if you were ordered to pay over 400% in taxes?
In autumn 2013, IT-interested Linus Dunkers first becomes active in the new digital currency called bitcoin. He buys and sells the digital currency, produces it and travels far and wide to give lectures about this new phenomenon. After just a few years, Linus has made a name for himself within the industry. Reams are written about bitcoin in media, and Linus gives interviews in the local newspaper as well as in national radio and one of Sweden’s biggest newspapers. Everything seems to be going smoothly until the day a few strangers ring the doorbell. Nothing will ever be the same again.
THEY CALL HIM THE BITCOIN MILLIONAIRE is the story about a curious, brave and determined man. We get to follow him as the first computer comes into his home, to the voluntary work in Tanzania, the prevention of hundreds of frauds, the eviction from his bank, media’s stories and, above all: The war against the Tax Agency.
The book is written by Linus’ wife Jessica Dunkers who gets to witness the authorities’ power games and the failings of the legal system firsthand.
