After turning $20,000 into $5,000,000, Balina launched Token Metrics, a leading crypto research firm, to give people a winning edge as they trade crypto themselves. Balina presents foundational knowledge and practical insights to take the reader from uninitiated crypto newbie to competent crypto investor while simultaneously helping those with some experience level-up their skills and knowledge.

Crypto Investing Guide is the essential new reference manual for current and aspiring crypto investors alike. The book reveals how to navigate the crypto markets and gain fluency in the future of finance. Crypto Investing Guide features 14 chapters of educational content, including:

  • Crypto fundamentals and best practices: Cryptocurrencies are built on top of a new and exciting technology called blockchain. To understand its economic potential, one must understand how the technology works and interacts with legacy financial systems.

  • Economic empowerment through crypto investing: Token Metrics’ mission is to unlock economic empowerment for all humankind. Cryptocurrencies are a new financial tool readily available to anyone with an internet connection, so they are an important tool to that end.

  • Crypto investing strategies: There’s a lot of noise out there about the future value of Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and the other 6,000 altcoins that exist. It can be daunting to understand where to invest, but this book guides investors on how to evaluate investment opportunities for maximum profit.

Crypto Investing Guide represents the collected wisdom and experience of the Token Metrics team, and it presents the most meaningful insights I’ve gleaned over the course of my career as a crypto investor,” said Ian Balina. “The primary goal of this book is to help current and aspiring crypto investors of all ages by tearing down technical walls that might otherwise hold people back, empowering them to build wealth and achieve financial freedom.”

“The world of crypto investing needed Ian’s voice, it just didn’t know it yet,” said Ben Armstrong, creator of popular YouTube channel BitBoy Crypto. “With this book, and the unparalleled insights of the Token Metrics team, Ian has brought a whole hidden world to a broader audience. I cannot emphasize enough how important it is for anyone with interest in the world of crypto to read this book.”

Regarding the release of NFTs alongside the book launch, Balina remarked, “We felt it was important to celebrate the occasion by issuing NFTs and rewarding those community members who support our mission of economic empowerment. This is the first step in transforming our community into an NFT-based ecosystem.”

10,000 NFTs will be available, across four tiers, with increasing rewards based on the number of books purchased. The contest was designed to incentivize buyers to not only purchase a book for themselves, but also to purchase additional copies to donate to any under-resourced school or educational institution worldwide, which is seeking the means to educate on crypto.

“It’s our Token Metrics mission to help achieve economic empowerment for all humanity,” said Sam Monac, Chief Operating Officer. “It is through initiatives like this that we will continue to help spread knowledge and access to the crypto market across the globe.”

The book is available worldwide on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other major retailers.
