Surfing the Cryptocurrency Wave
Decoding the Next Generation of Money



August 2022 | 236 pages | SAGE Response
When you can use your wallet to watch a film or buy a pair of slippers, why choose a book on cryptocurrency? 
Pay close attention to the banknotes in your pocket, the credit and debit cards, or the shiny coin that falls out of your pocket. All these are forms of ‘money.' 
But what makes ‘money’ valuable? How did it become the monopoly of a few institutions? How do cryptocurrencies fit into this grand scheme? 
While the tsunami of cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm, only a tiny percentage is surfing its wave and reaping the benefits. 
This book is for everyone, whether you are a consumer, investor, producer, seller or anywhere in between. Riding the cryptocurrency wave may not be a choice anymore!

‘Shubhasish has captured the colossal wave of cryptos, triggered by Nakamoto’s Bitcoin, and intensified by thousands of altcoins which had followed. Since its birth in 2009, Bitcoin has shifted tectonic plates in the financial world. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to know the link between money, bitcoin, altcoins, NFTs and blockchain.’

‘Fascinating. Honest. Useful. The experience conveyed through this book is invaluable. Knowledge is not enough if you do not turn it into practice, which you will want to start by the time you read the last page of this book.’
