Discover “new paths to prosperity you never knew existed” in this “must-read guide to the new economy.” (Ozan Varol, author of Awaken Your Genius)
The traditional ways of earning a living are outdated, if not outright rigged. That’s why a growing number of enterprising individuals are instead turning to the growing ecosystem of decentralized, fast-moving virtual markets to pursue a host of previously unheard-of ways to pay the bills.
Join New York Times bestselling author Chris Guillebeau on a fascinating tour of this brave new world where novelty is currency, and the creators are in control. Along the way, you’ll meet a colorful cast of renegades who are driving this money revolution, including:
- A teenager who earned more than $400,000 helping indecisive parents pick the perfect name for their newborn child
- The armchair pundits and pop culture enthusiasts making hundreds of dollars a day betting on everything from local elections to who will be next to be voted off Love Island via online “prediction markets”.
- A broke 29-year-old who bartered her way from a hairpin to a new house—twice—while gaining internet fame in the process.
- The gamers racking up digital currency by breeding virtual crabs in the metaverse.
- A remote worker who collects two six-figure salaries from simultaneously working two different jobs.
