Shelly Palmer: My New eBook

ShellyPalmerTHINK ABOUT THISWEDNESDAY, MAY 19, 2021I’m super excited to tell you about my new eBook: Blockchain, Cryptocurrency, NFTs & Smart Contracts: An executive guide to the world of decentralized finance. It’s available exclusively on Amazon. It’s a 30-minute read that will get you up to speed!Crypto prices and NFTs are hogging the headlines, but they are merely the most visible components of a rapidly growing decentralized financial system (DeFi) that has the potential to significantly challenge how we buy, sell, and trade just about everything. Blockchain and cryptocurrency may seem new, but they have been around for more than 10 years.This eBook contains an overview of the entire ecosystem as well as deeper insights to help you think about the consequences (both intended and unintended) of our transition into a decentralized, trustless world. I hope you find it useful. -sP.S. Want to chat about DeFi? Join me at 3 p.m. ET today for the #strategyhacker livestream on YouTube Live. Set a reminder.P.P.S.
