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 back 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 deep dives, too.
So far, I've written ridiculously in-depth deep dives for many of today's top cryptos, including Solana, Polkadot, Algorand, Radix, Fantom, IOTA, Cosmos, Avalanche, Aleph Zero and Aptos. You can see my full list of deep dives here.

Inflation is making the poor poorer. Meanwhile, increasing asset prices are making the rich richer. Could Bitcoin level the playing field?
Here’s a bold prediction: Security Token Offerings (STOs) will be the biggest disrupter of global financial markets in history. Those who fail to see this change coming will be left out in the cold, while those that do could reap untold fortunes.
Just as Bitcoin allows you to make payments without a bank, DeFi allows you to create an entire financial system without banks or central authorities.
