PLEASE NOTE | The Crypto Pocket Guide was developed by IDEO CoLab fellows researching how we might make crypto-investing more fun and accessible for more people.

It is a work in progress and should not be used as a stand-in for fiduciary or legal advice. A full version of the guide is not available for download at this time. Please contact Dana Martens to learn more.

This is not an official IDEO endorsed product, it was developed for a prototype sprint by fellows, and is included here as a portfolio piece only.
