My name is Mark Helfman. I’m a Medium top writer for bitcoin and investing topics, a 2020 and 2021 Noonie award nominee, and the author of three books, Consensusland, From Bust to Boom: Ten Months Through the Eyes of a Bitcoiner, and Bitcoin or Bust: Wall Street’s Entry Into Cryptocurrency, which hit #2 on Amazon’s list of short financial reads.

When the crypto scene heated up in early 2020, people asked me for more content, advice, and information on a variety of topics. Everybody wants to make better decisions about bitcoin and altcoins. It’s nice to know they value my opinion.

Hence the Crypto is Easy newsletter, where we keep it real, go beyond the hype, focus on the big picture, and figure out what really matters (usually, the stuff you never hear about on Twitter or the news).

Here’s what you get on the free plan

  • Unique perspective and insights on market sentiment and the macro investment environment. This is exclusive content beyond the information I publish on my website and other outlets, based on questions and suggestions I get from you. 

  • A weekly rundown of interesting posts, articles, videos, podcasts, and news.

  • Occasional interviews and special issues about cryptocurrency and related topics.

Here’s what you get as a premium subscriber

You get everything above plus:

  • Free electronic versions of all of my books as well as any new ebooks I publish in the future.

  • Market updates and analysis.

  • My plan for buying and selling bitcoin (and by extension, altcoins). While nobody can call the top, we have lots of data on how bitcoin acts when it gets near the big, cycle-ending tops. With that data, I’ll tell you when to sell (very rarely) and how to catch every optimal buying opportunity along the way (usually, not when you expect).
