Invisible Fortune: A tale of cryptocurrency

Invisible Fortune: A tale of cryptocurrency

Author(s): J Lee Porter, Ed Teja

Location(s): Cartagena

Genre(s): Short Stories

Era(s): Contemporary

Betrayal for a worthy cause can taste mighty sweet.

Henry Miller once said, “One’s destination is never a place, but always a new way of seeing things.”

When a programmer on an extended vacation in Cartagena, Colombia, lets a rich and chatty American expat tell his story, it wasn’t interesting or particularly impressive. But, when he meets the man’s beautiful assistant and hears rumors that the man has a dark secret and has protection, he is intrigued and begins to see the situation differently, to think of ways a programmer might bring down one of the rich and powerful, to stop him.

This story of high-tech vigilante justice was inspired by a steamy tropical, South American atmosphere, cold drinks, and lithe, sweaty bodies. It’s the story of how, ultimately, a man reacts to the temptation to deliver justice and satisfy his own desires (to possess both the tangible and intangible), and in the process, overcoming common sense and perhaps whatever common decency he once had.
