About the Book

Join the cryptocurrency revolution or ignore itas a passing fad? Check out the facts and decide for yourself!

In 2009, an anonymous programmer releases a new method of paying and being paid to the world. No one runs it; no one controls it; no authority verifies it. In this, its creator promises, is a way around banks and governments, around laws and regulations, and around failure itself. Less than a decade on, the cryptocurrency known as Bitcoin is soaring in demand, and a single unit is valued in the thousands. It has spawned hundreds of clones, and its underlying blockchain technology has created a revolution in computing. It has legally made millionaires of thousands of ordinary people.

Decrypted shows you, in plain, no-nonsense terms, exactly how that happened. Cryptocurrency and startup pioneer Leng Hoe Lon walks you through how cryptos like Bitcoin work and get their value, their strengths and weaknesses, their implications for the world... and how they fit in your investment plans.
