Overview

THE WILD INSIDE STORY OF CRYPTO'S GET-RICH-QUICK UNDERBELLY

Nat Eliason had six months to make as much money as possible before his first child was born. So, he turned to where countless others did in 2021: Crypto. 

Within a year, he'd made millions writing code holding hundreds of millions of dollars of other people's money. He'd been hacked. He'd sold a picture of a monkey for two hundred grand. He'd become an influencer, speaking at conferences, and writing a weekly newsletter to tens of thousands of fans. Best of all, Nat had amassed a small fortune. But how much of this money was even real? And how many times can someone double down before they eventually lose everything? 

Crypto Confidential is Nat's unfiltered, insider's account of the hyperactive, hyper-speculative, hyper-addictive, nearly unregulated, completely insane world being built on the blockchain. A behind-the-scenes exposé of the bull runs and breakdowns, revealing exactly how the crypto-sausage gets made. A story of getting rich, going broke, scamming and getting scammed- and how we can all be more educated participants during the inevitable next bull run.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

ADVANCE PRAISE FOR CRYPTO CONFIDENTIAL

“A riveting insider’s account of the cryptocurrency casino. It’s funny, honest, and moving in equal measure—a true triumph for a book about bits and bytes.”
Jimmy Soni, author of The Founders

“A great look from the trenches to understand the good and bad of cryptocurrency from the inside out.”
Reid Hoffman, entrepreneur (PayPal, LinkedIn), partner at Greylock, and host of Masters of Scale

“The crypto industry has no shortage of scandal, and yet the allure of its potential persists for many. Nat Eliason’s book is a riveting, personal account of what happens when you get sucked in—for good and bad. I couldn’t put it down.”
Zoë Schiffer, managing editor of Platformer, author of Extremely Hardcore
 
“As someone who used to work in crypto, Nat’s book really resonated with me—the search for meaning, the questioning, the wondering if things really can be better . . . and the disappointment when it isn’t. The book is soulful and a beautiful exploration of an industry that should ask more of itself.”
Kyla Scanlon, financial educator, author of In This Economy?
 
“My only crypto-take is that if you don’t find some of it inspiring, you’re not paying attention, and if you don’t find a lot of it absurd, you’re not paying attention. Nat Eliason brilliantly captures both ends in Crypto Confidential. Every investor should read this book.”
Morgan Housel, author of The Psychology of Money and Same as Ever
 
“Crypto Confidential is the perfect way to understand the culture of the crypto craze. Fast-paced and informative, newcomers will be shocked and veterans will feel seen.”
Eric Jorgenson, author of The Almanack of Naval Ravikant
 

“A gripping narrative on the highs, lows, and inner workings of cryptocurrency. Part thriller and part educational, I found it hard to put the book down as I had to know how it all ends.”
Nick Maggiuilli, author of Just Keep Buying
 
"Like Ready Player One and The Social Network, but with an underlying, Liam Neeson 'just trying to protect my family' vibe. It's really f#@*% good."
Nathan Baschez, founder of Lex
