Hello and welcome to coin confidential
The greatest crypto website on the internet… and a place completely free of hyperbole.
My name is Harry Hamburg and I created coin confidential when I left Southbank Investment Research in 2019.

Here’s an abbreviation you’re going to see a lot of, starting this year: CBDC. It stands for Central Bank Digital Currency, and it’s going to cause the biggest shakeup of the global financial system since the 2008 financial crisis.
There is one simple reason why crypto prices are falling. And once you understand it, crypto investing – or any investing, for that matter – gets a whole lot easier.
