HerMoney Podcast Episode 177: Cryptocurrency Investing For Dummies With Kiana Danial

Kathryn Tuggle  |  September 4, 2019

If you're not sure where to get started with investing in cryptocurrency and blockchain, our guest this week has all the answers.

This week we’re boldly going where no HerMoney episode has ever gone before — we’re talking cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. Listen in as we explore some of your most frequently asked questions, including: How does it work? Should you invest in it? How do I use my money once I buy crypto?

Our guest, Kiana Danial, is the author of the new book Cryptocurrency Investing for Dummies, and CEO of She talks with Jean about her journey into investing in cryptocurrency, and understanding what blockchain was all about. With Kiana’s help, we’ll learn about the digital ledgers that record cryptocurrency transactions and keep them secure.

Of course we’ll also tackle the risks associated with investing in a new technology, and how difficult it is to pinpoint which of the thousands of cryptocurrencies currently on the market will be the “winner” in the end. Kiana also talks about her international upbringing, with a childhood in Iran, her time spent in Japan, and how that shaped her perspective on a de-centralized currency like Bitcoin.

Kiana also shares her thoughts on exactly when we’re all going to be able to use cryptocurrency in a “real” way, to pay for things on our mobile devices, just like we would with any other purchasing app. Hint: The future isn’t so very far away.
