Publisher's Summary

The innovative investor's guide to an entirely new asset class - from two experts on the cutting edge

With the rise of bitcoin and blockchain technology, investors can capitalize on the greatest investment opportunity since the Internet. Bitcoin was the first cryptoasset, but today there are over 800 and counting, including ether, ripple, litecoin, monero, and more. This clear, concise, and accessible guide from two industry insiders shows you how to navigate this brave new blockchain world - and how to invest in these emerging assets to secure your financial future.

Cryptoassets gives you all the tools you need:

  • An actionable framework for investigating and valuing cryptoassets
  • Portfolio management techniques to maximize returns while managing risk
  • Historical context and tips to navigate inevitable bubbles and manias
  • Practical guides to exchanges, wallets, capital market vehicles, and ICOs
  • Predictions on how blockchain technology may disrupt current portfolios

In addition to offering smart investment strategies, this authoritative resource will help you understand how these assets were created, how they work, and how they are evolving amid the blockchain revolution. The authors define a clear and original cryptoasset taxonomy, composed of cryptocurrencies, cryptocommodities, and cryptotokens, with insights into how each subset is blending technology and markets. You'll find a variety of methods to invest in these assets, whether through global exchanges that trade 24/7 or initial cryptoasset offerings (ICOs). By sequentially building on the concepts of each prior chapter, the book will provide you with a full understanding of the cryptoasset economy and the opportunities that await the innovative investor.

Cryptoassets represent the future of money and markets. This book is your guide to that future.

    "Crypto assets for the beginner, but V. USA focused..."

    This is a great introduction. It goes through some of the technical terms associated with crypto investments but isn’t sophisticated enough in places for those of us who may be familiar with the world. There are also frequent mentions of the IRS and US centric bodies which at times does limit the audience.
    I would have liked to see further explanation of the proof of work bs proof of stake. And other things to look for in alt coins. The book was quite Bitcoin focused with some stores about other coins.
    Generally very good. I am very glad I read it and have recommended it to colleagues and friends who ask me about crypto assets.

    "A Key to the a Future"

    A very difficult subject was dissected by this book. Buy the analog and the digital books and get yourself a highlighter. It’s similar to a college course

    "Complete detail "

    This book goes into such detail it’s crazy. I was highly pleased by the amount he went into it. Not just about bitcoin or litecoin but the whole cryptoassests realm. And for someone who travels a lot by vehicle, it was perfect for the road!

    "Timely. Well written. Excellently narrated."

    as a non investor who got into cryptoassets because of an admiration for the technology and implication for social change, this book was a great introduction to the broad topic of investing in crypto assets. It does not get bogged down in the my new show. It presents a clear structure and Broad understanding of investing in context of cryptoassets. It is a great place to begin if you want to enter the market.

    This is it! Perfect introduction into the world of crypto assets explained thoroughly will detailed examples if real world crypto assets on the market today.

    Contextualized alongside traditional investment vehicles makes this an easy primer for those somewhat familiar with the archaic investment opportunities that have favored the rich and wealthy up to this point. Highly, highly recommend.

    "Great for those who aren't yet sold on Crypto"

    Convincing arguments backed up by solid research. The book reads from a traditional investors point of view to educate the reader from square one how to navigate the confusing world of cryptocurrencies.

    This book left me wanting more....but they didn't have time to write it all. Great starting point for interested skeptics.

    "The actual crypto parts are quite useful. "

    The book spends a lot of time on basic investing, diversification and history things like the tulip bubble. I suppose that’s fine for establishing the cred of the authors but isn’t really anything new to a typical tech investor.

    Also- is it pronounced “dohje” or “dog-e” (doggy). Pronouncing doge so literally always seemed odd to me. Fwiw.
