NEW YORK, Sept. 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — In CONFESSIONS OF A CRYPTO MILLIONAIRE (Zealot Publishing; September 2019; ISBN: 978-1-7331717-0-0), Dan Conway tells the story of how he made $14 million investing in cryptocurrency. But the book isn’t about tech-bros partying on yachts—it’s about a father of three with a soul-crushing job, an Oxy habit, and a fanatical belief that blockchain and cryptocurrencies are a path to a better life for billions of people around the world.
Conway’s attraction to crypto wasn’t borne only of a get-rich-quick dream. He was a true believer because he was living the problem crypto sought to fix. He was a mid-level executive who hated his job. In 2015, after hundreds of hours of research and Reddit discussions, Conway recognized blockchain’s potential to render the top-down structure of modern business obsolete. Then his impulsive personality led him to invest his life-savings, borrow $200,000 against his home, and bet it all on Ethereum. Fourteen million dollars later, he has escaped the rat race and is set for life.
In interviews, Conway can speak to the promise of crypto and how its success should be measured not by its price, but whether in the end it realizes its potential and changes the world. He can also speak to taking risks and career reinvention.
CONFESSIONS OF A CRYPTO MILLIONAIRE has a happy ending, but it isn’t a fairy-tale. Throughout the journey, Conway faces doubts, demons, euphoria, depression, panic, and grief—things that don’t disappear when your bank account reaches a certain number. The book is a relentlessly honest—and very entertaining—look back by an ordinary person navigating an extraordinary situation.
