Paradigm Shift – Prepare For Disruption

From day one, we have been intrigued with the original idea behind Bitcoin and blockchain technology. However, during our research, we experienced and realized that there is an enormous 'knowledge gap' when it comes to people's understanding of monetary history, monetary policy and about the fundamentals of money.

Since early 2017, we have been working on, designing and setting up Cryptomanuals. It is a research and consultancy company which focuses mainly on the transformation within the financial ecosystem. We present broader research into the state of the global economy and the emergence of new technology, notably blockchain, Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies.

We have personally experienced the massive hype which resulted in the speculative cryptocurrency hyper bubble of late 2017 and 2018. All this time, we have not been idle but have kept increasing our understanding of the cryptocurrency environment.

The Bigger Picture

From day one, we have been intrigued with the original idea behind Bitcoin and blockchain technology. However, during our research, we experienced and realized that there is an enormous ‘knowledge gap’. So, when it comes to people’s understanding of monetary history, monetary policy and about the fundamentals of money. However, the fundamentals of money and how the system is built influences society in more ways than we care to admit. And this is where we add value.

We believe that the transition from the internet of information towards the internet of value heralds the beginning of a new economic era. We are standing at a crossroad. Where there is a real possibility to move towards an inclusive economy. So, in this new economy, people’s (intellectual) contributions are valued and rewarded according to the added value they bring to the society or economy as a whole, their immediate environment, community or family and friends.

"In the midst of every crisis, lies great opportunity."

Albert Einstein

What's the Point?

The goal of Cryptomanuals is to inform people of what is going on in the global economy. It provides some historical context and point out one of the most significant opportunities of our lifetime. Even though we stress radical change appears to be imminent, most people still refuse to see what is right in front of them. 

The Cryptomanual provides – for those who want to ‘do it yourself’ (DIY). So, it has all essential information you need to start investing in – and learning about – blockchain and cryptocurrencies. Therefore it is extensive, and offers much-needed insights relating to pressing social and economic macro developments driving these disruptive markets.

Even though we are very positive regarding what the future has in store, we cannot help but share the sentiment that the financial system, as we know it. It will undoubtedly go into a global recession if it does not change radically. So, if it doesn’t change dramatically, billions of people around the world are going to be affected. The world has to shake off the illusion that a debt-based fiat currency model is somehow good for our economy. Moreover, it snap back to reality (as we have done multiple times throughout history).

At Cryptomanuals, our mission is to inform and prepare people to take action today: spread your financial risks, discover unique opportunities and safeguard your financial future of tomorrow.

Become Your Own Central Bank

When you own cryptocurrencies, you store your assets in such a way that only you can access them, you have full control at any time, without counterparty risk. Banks usually keep a fraction of what is on their balance sheets as a reserve due to their business model of providing loans. Put plainly; banks can provide loans while maintaining very few funds on their balance sheet. This system is widely known as fractional reserve banking.

Not Your Keys; Not Your Crypto!

Centralized exchanges do not provide you with your private keys. Instead, they let you log-in with a well known username-password combination. Not owning your private keys implies that you do not truly own your assets. Instead, the exchanges are the “custodian” of your assets, and they hold your funds. Hardware wallets enable you to store your holdings while owning your private keys. This way, you can access your funds by yourself without the need of third parties.
