Ben Mezrich releases “Bitcoin Billionaires” book at star-studded event

BOSTON — 150 guests joined author Ben Mezrich in the launch of his 20th book, “Bitcoin Billionaires,” at a party at the Mandarin Oriental Boston hotel on May 29, 2019.

In the non-fiction book, which was released on Tuesday, Mezrich writes about the cryptocurrency Bitcoin. At the center of this tome are bigtime Bitcoin investors the twins Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss, who readers first met in Mezrich’s “The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook,” and the subsequent Oscar-winning film “The Social Network.”

(Although Bill Brett stuck around for a while, he only spotted one of the brothers, Tyler, at the party.)

Mezrich’s wife Tonya got the night rolling that featured music by the DiMare Brothers. Among those spotted at the party were Boston Globe managing director Linda Henry, Seth Greenberg, Simone Winston, Amy Finsilver, Chris Haynes, George Church, Daniel Miller, Janet Wu, Ashley Bernon, Marlo Fogelman, Cheryl Richards, Boston Ballet’s Lia Cirio and John Lam, Boston Ballet dancer turned choreographer Yury Yanowsky and his wife, Kathleen Breen Combes, Boston Ballet principal dancer who was recently named executive director of Festival Ballet Providence.
