This book is meant to give you a background into the world of crypto and web3, including an introduction to the underlying technology, what the situation is currently and where things might go in future.
This is a $25 e-book that gives you access to up to $50 in free crypto when you buy it (through deals with our partners). So as well as a return on your investment, you gain knowledge about a new space and an up-to-date look at all the drama going on right now!

It’s absolute chaos in the world of crypto right now.
And there is maybe/probably/definitely more pain to come.
That’s exactly why now is a good time to start paying attention.
This is a time when some of the deadweight in the industry is filtered out, where you can invest in promising projects at bargain prices, and where some real innovation is occurring.
1) Read this section:Crypto in the Real World
2) It’s a tough time for all companies and protocols in the web3 space. There has been a wave of bankruptcies and fraudulent activity from bad actors. This has led many to speculate about the demise of crypto as a whole. These scams, crashes and downturns are certainly important because they hurt consumer confidence. But I think the world of crypto lives and dies by its use cases. If this new technology can be used to solve real-world problems, the sector will grow in the long run.
There are two mistakes you shouldn't make
- Don’t dismiss the whole space because SOME projects within it are trash
- Don’t judge the potential uses of new technology based purely on what you see today
3) This is not a love letter to crypto - it’s meant to inform you. There are big risks and threats to the ecosystem which we will discuss. But if you think the world of web3 is not impacting the world at all, I’d send you back to point 1) and argue you’ve not dug deep enough.

Some of the free crypto on offer is through exclusive deals with our partners, and some are through pointing you to places and deals you don’t know about yet.
Some of this free crypto comes in the form of extra bonuses when you buy crypto, while some of it you can earn just by signing up or watching some tutorials.
There are also extra bonuses including:
- A grants database for entrepreneurs outlining the different protocols giving out funding for people building on their platform

- Access to a weekly crypto newsletter
This is a chart made by a16z, one of the world’s most famous Venture Capital companies. It compares users of the internet with users of crypto/web3. We can see that web3 is following the exact same trajectory as the internet did in its early days. In fact, where we are now in web3 is exactly where the internet was in 1995.
Imagine being able to travel back in time to 1995 knowing how powerful the internet will become one day.
What do you do with that information? You could invest in Apple stock, learn to code, start your own company, or quickly buy a domain like cars.com (currently valued at $872 million). The opportunities are endless.
In the world of crypto – it’s still 1995.
It’s not meant to be an encyclopaedia. It’s meant to be a way for you to get the knowledge and background you need, as quickly and efficiently as possible.
The value of this book comes from the fact that I’ve trawled through hundreds of hours of material to find exactly what you need to learn at this stage.
If you are an entrepreneur looking for your next venture, there are protocols handing out literally millions of dollars in grants to invest in people who are building in web3 (example 1, example 2, example 3).
If you’re a burned-out employee, this is a sector where you can apply to jobs that didn’t exist a few years ago.
And of course, there will still be opportunities to invest in new coins and ecosystems that will appreciate rapidly.
But before you do all that – you need to have a base level of knowledge. That’s where this book comes in.
At worst: You'll learn a bit more about a new forefront of technology
At best: You use the foundation built from this guide to go and find your own 100x investments, or your next career opportunity in the sector.
I’m not asking you to decide yes or no today… I’m asking you to make a fully informed decision, that is all. The only way you can make a fully informed decision is on the inside, not the outside. So you get on the inside and see if this book is truly valuable to you. Then, if it is, you decide to keep it. If it’s not for you, no hard feelings.
You will then, after signing up, be able to make a fully informed decision that this isn’t for you. But you can’t make this decision right now for the same reason you don't buy a house without first looking at the inside of it.
For any reason whatsoever, if you want your money back you can get it because I only want to keep your money if you’re happy. All you have to do is email firstname.lastname@example.org within 30 days of purchase and include one reason why this wasn’t the right fit for you. I’m always trying to produce improve the product and any feedback is invaluable.
You can only make such a guarantee when you're confident that what you have is the real deal and I'm fairly confident that when you sign up, you’re getting exactly what you need to benefit.
Is there a printed/pdf version?
No, Crypto is a space that is moving fast. This book will have to be constantly updated, which is why I didn’t want to print a version that quickly becomes outdated.
