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 created coin confidential when I left Southbank Investment Research in 2019.

At Southbank, I was Editor of two newsletters, with more than 85,000 subscribers:

Exponential Investor – which focused on tech. And Crypto Wire – which focused on, yes, you guessed it… crypto.

So if you found me through any of that, it’s great to have you back.

In coin confidential I try to balance the tech, finance and philosophy of crypto, without taking any of it too seriously. And yes, I write crypto reviews, too.

So far, I've written ridiculously in-depth reviews for many of today's top cryptos, including Solana, Polkadot, Algorand, Radix, Fantom and IOTA.

Subscribe below to get my "this month in crypto" newsletter and access to members-only crypto guides, explainers, reviews and reports.

But please note. Nothing I write is financial advice. See the disclaimer for more.
