Though presented informally, Allman’s guidance contains a wealth of tried-and-tested tips on an industry well-known for its complexity and uncertainty. She starts with the basics, including the various types of cryptocurrency, fees that accompany trading, the nuts-and-bolts differences between traditional currency and digital currency, and more. Readers new to crypto investing will welcome Allman’s summaries of complicated topics—like just what a crypto wallet is, or how to navigate crypto staking—as well as her willingness to share her own preferences for success in the industry (she recommends investing in non-fungible tokens and putting in the necessary time to study market trends before jumping in headfirst).
Though Allman acknowledges this is a challenging market to break into, and argues against the age-old “get rich quick” adage, financial freedom is the end goal here; but, as with all things related to money and investing, she consistently reminds readers that nothing is without risk. There is hope, however, through strategic planning and informed decision making, of long term success, as Allman encourages readers: “If you believe in the crypto industry and start focusing on low-level traits, you can definitely hope to multiply your investment in the coming years.” Readers just dipping their toes into the cryptocurrency waters will find this an informative stepping stone to digital money investments.
