Who is CryptoCurrency Facts?… Plus a Disclaimer
CryptoCurrencyFacts.com is a free-to-use website that has been focused on teaching people the basics of cryptocurrency since 2015.
DISCLAIMER: The content of this website (CryptoCurrencyFacts.com) is intended to convey general information only. This website does not provide provide legal, investment, tax, etc advice. You should not treat any information on CryptoCurrencyFacts.com as a call to make any particular decision regarding cryptocurrency usage, legal matters, investments, taxes, cryptocurrency mining, exchange usage, wallet usage, etc. We strongly suggest seeking advice from your own financial, investment, tax, or legal adviser. Neither CryptocurrencyFacts.com nor its parent companies accept responsibility for any loss, damage, or inconvenience caused as a result of reliance on information published on, or linked to, from CryptocurrencyFacts.com.
With the disclaimer covered, here is some more information about us:
Our team has been researching cryptocurrency since becoming interested in it around the time period leading up to the 2013 “bubble.” Meanwhile, we have have been officially writing about cryptocurrency since 2015. Now in 2017 are still writing about it in these days of $1k – $11k Bitcoins!
In general, although not everyone who works on the site in any capacity is a cryptocurrency user/investor/miner/etc, our authors are cryptocurrency users/investors/miners/etc.
Specifically, Tom, the head author, invests in and trades the major coins traded on Coinbase (BTC, LTC, ETH) on exchanges (GDAX for example), trades altcoins, is sometimes invested in GBTC (and chipmakers like NVIDIA and AMD), has participated in an ICO (as a user, not a developer), has experience doing basic mining with a CPU (as a hobbyist), and more (for example reading through regulations, studying ASIC mining, watching the markets and trading on exchanges, and reading documents on coin creation and the fundamentals of blockchain).
This is to say, at least someone on our team has dabbled in and researched all the basic aspects of cryptocurrency for the past few years. That is also to say, we are often invested in and trading the products we discuss (the idea being to convey our experience, not to offer professional legal, tax, investing, etc advice).
More than just relaying direct experience (in a fun and friendly, but not professional sense), our site is focused on doing research, walking through products and processes, and then relaying those basics to mass audience in laymen’s terms.
We aren’t cryptocurrency experts, we aren’t investing experts, we aren’t legal experts, we aren’t tax experts, and we aren’t writing for cryptocurrency experts.
We are just users with a few years of experience in the cryptocurrency space, and a few more in the “research complex systems and write about them online space,” trying to share what we learned.
So to sum this up, we are normal people who have insight into the cryptocurrency space, we aren’t professionals giving you professional tax, legal, medical, investing, etc advice.
So like, have fun learning about crypto, but don’t go investing purely on our insights like you might a paid and licensed professional. This is a free online site, not your fiduciary or lawyer or accountant. So it would be a little weird if you took action based on something we write and then like turn around and try to hold us accountable. Don’t do that, is the point.
All that said, enjoy reading and ping us with any questions.
TIP: See the legal jargon on the side of the page for the “you shouldn’t take what we say on this site as professional tax, investing, legal, etc advice.” We can help you understand how cryptocurrency works, but we aren’t here to make your investment choices for you. Really want to stress that.
