Crypto is the quintessential modern alternative asset. When Bitcoin first hit the scene, many felt the digital currency would become the new gold.

Ever since Coinbase,, and Binance helped Bitcoin and Ethereum go mainstream, there’s been a litany of altcoins in the market. Some of these are potential moonshots, while many more are garbage sh*tcoins with no utility or future.

We view altcoins through an unbiased lens, studying roadmaps, market caps & price movements to understand the fundamental value of each one.

Follow crypto if you’re interested. We’ll send occasional updates.

I read your emails pretty religiously. Your issue on investing in tax liens is one of my absolute favorites. Great coverage for an otherwise totally grey area that seems to have little mindshare within the broader REI community.

I've recently discovered the Alts newsletter, and am enjoying it. They don't strictly focus on digital assets, which actually helps it keep it more unique in my opinion.
