Alex Tapscott to Release New Digital Asset Book Amid Crypto Crash

Crypto winter is the best time to drill down on core concepts and build for the future

TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Blockchain Research Institute is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Digital Asset Revolution: How Blockchain is Decentralizing Finance and Disrupting Wall Street. From Alex Tapscott, co-author of the international bestseller Blockchain Revolution and Managing Director of the Ninepoint Digital Asset Group, comes the foundational book on digital assets, decentralized finance (DeFi) and the transformation of value.

In tune with the crypto Zeitgeist, Tapscott brings us a well-researched and highly accessible book on the peer-to-peer marketplaces and open economic systems that are supporting new digital assets like NFTs, CBDCs, stablecoins, crypto-derivatives, and more.

“Digital Asset Revolution is a wake-up call for financial and business leaders everywhere,” says the Honorable J. Chris Giancarlo, former Chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

This book is also the first to address a mainstream audience on how digital assets and the industries they enable, such as DeFi, will transform traditional business models and financial markets, rethink the role of government and currencies, reimagine creative industries and much more.

"If bitcoin was the spark for the financial services revolution, then DeFi and digital assets are the accelerant. Look beyond the daily market gyrations and you'll see that the foundations are being laid for a new internet and financial services industry built with digital assets and blockchain. This is the most important innovation in a generation - the first digital medium for value - a way to move, store and manage assets like money, stocks, votes and even our digital identities privately and peer-to-peer. Bull Markets are for earning. Bear Markets are for learning. Start your educational journey with Digital Asset Revolution," states Tapscott.

Named #1 New Release in the Business Management category on Amazon, Digital Asset Revolution: How Blockchain is Decentralizing Finance and Disrupting Wall Street will be released on July 12, 2022 in hardcover and Kindle editions.
