About the book

Discover how to dip your toe into the cryptocurrency investing pool without getting burned

In Sustainably Investing in Digital Assets Globally, international finance and fintech expert Selva Ozelli delivers an eye-opening and insightful discussion of cryptocurrency investment, as well as the risks and opportunities that await those who deal in this promising new technology. In the book, the author explores how cryptocurrencies have been used by illicit operators throughout the US and the world and how legitimate investors have sought to limit their exposure to illegal activity.

Readers will also find comprehensive treatments of US-based and global cryptocurrency regulations, as well as:

  • Advice for investors concerned about the environmental sustainability of blockchain technology but who still wish to invest in cryptocurrencies
  • Information about a variety of countries and governments who have explored and implemented various cryptocurrency initiatives inside their own borders
  • Discussions surrounding the drive by many central banks to introduce a digital currency, in addition to the surging popularity of non-fungible tokens

A can’t-miss handbook for the crypto-curious investor, Sustainably Investing in Digital Assets Globally deserves a place in the bookshelves of anyone with an interest in international finance, fintech, technology, or cryptocurrency.
