Crush Crypto is an independent research group focused on blockchain technology and digital currencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum. Cryptocurrency is a relatively new asset class with large investment potential but there is also a lot of speculation and price volatility. As the industry is unregulated, the quality of investments can vary significantly.

The goal of Crush Crypto is to provide high quality and objective fundamental analysis in cryptocurrency investing. We are not paid or mandated to do any of our reviews and our content is based on our own research, analysis and personal opinion.

Crush Crypto also manages a Digital Asset Array (DAA) which is a cryptographic token solution developed by ICONOMI that operates on the Ethereum public blockchain. The Crush Crypto Core DAA (CCC) is an actively managed portfolio of various cryptocurrencies and application tokens selected through a rigorous research process that people can directly acquire.
