Erica Stanford wrote the book Crypto Wars. She spent the last year researching the biggest hacks and scams in crypto to then share them in her book. She covers faked death, missing billions, & industry disruption.

There are so many scams and just risky investments out there and so few people talking about it. Those who risk so much by calling out scams in order to help others should be applauded and have their voice amplified.
