What Does the Book Contain?
The Crypto Portfolio is divided into three parts. The first part provides an overview of and explain what crypto assets are. The second part delves into “The Crypto Portfolio Strategy” outlining useful information and advice to consider when investing in cryptoassets. The third part moves into what Hobbs describes as more advanced investment techniques.
Reading through the book we found numerous positive points about it.
- The text is easy to follow.
- Key concepts are explained in a very straight forward and comprehendable manner.
- Provides some very sensible advice in how to choose assets particularly if you are a novice.
- Particularly good at highlighting good cryptoasset investing practices.
- Has a helpful advice section on tax, that is an often forgotten consideration in other books and in Crypto investing in general.
- The book’s technical analysis section is not particularly detailed, even if it is a good introduction. You will have to do further reading on this to learn more.
- Places an emphasis on using value averaging, which may not be a strategy that suits everybody.
All in all our review has found that “The Crypto Portfolio” is an excellent cryptoasset investment primer. It is an overall solid beginners guide, however as the technical analysis section is quite brief you may want to explore this further in other materials and your own research. Furthermore an emphasis is placed on value averaging, which may suit some people but not others. What we really liked is that it had a section on how to approach tax. Although taxes are probably not a popular topic, it is nonetheless an important one that is mysteriously ignored in other publications
