Cryptocurrency has become a familiar term, but few of us understand its nuances. Due both to its association with illegal marketplaces and its complex technology, Bitcoin still has a mysterious reputation. For the first time, we’re interacting with assets that are created, hosted, and shared entirely in digital form. It’s unlike anything we’ve bartered with before.

This is where authors Chris Burniske and Jack Tatar can help. At the time of writing, Chris Burniske is the co-founder of Placeholder, a venture firm working with cryptoassets, while Jack Tatar is a renowned investor and advisor to cryptoasset start-ups. As some of the foremost experts in cryptocurrency, Burniske and Tatar are the best people to introduce us to the concept.

Rather than a ‘how to’ manual for people looking to invest, Cryptoassets is an overview of the history of cryptocurrency, and a guide for readers looking to understand this new form of digital money.
