Cryptos on the Cusp: The New Crypto Environment*
2017 was the year digital currencies went mainstream. Many crypto investors found they didn't need a lot of discernment: they just needed to be in early, and they would see huge gains. Digital currencies, the "internet of money," are a new asset class; these assets, and the technologies that underlie them, are going to transform finance, commerce, and daily life in profound ways. But the digital currency landscape has changed: more institutions are paying attention and getting involved; the regulatory environment continues to be in flux; and cryptocurrencies, tokens, exchanges, and blockchains are launching, evolving, and folding almost daily.
Are there still huge exponential gains for some cryptocurrencies and tokens, or are they all doomed and bound to go to zero? How do cryptos work, what problems do they solve, and what value will they offer to their users? We're leaving the crypto era where success was inevitable for anyone lucky or prescient enough just to be around--and entering the era when, just as with stocks, bonds, real estate, and hard assets, investors have to understand the value of what they're buying. They also have to understand the evolving social, political, legal, and regulatory environment surrounding the new world of digital currencies.
In this master class, Monty Guild, Anthony Danaher, Tim Shirata, and Rudi von Abele of Guild Investment Management will give you a ground-up understanding of digital currencies; where they came from; how they work; what they do; how to buy, sell, and hold them; how to deal with security risks; and how to identify possible frauds. You'll also learn how to analyze cryptos and tokens, identify the different types of tokens, and separate the projects with real potential from the ones that just have hype.
