This paper reviews three approaches to valuing Crypto Assets. 1) cost of production, 2) equation of exchange and 3) network value. We then propose a new model, modifying the cost of production. Given the growing popularity and value of the Crypto Asset market, we add to the growing academic and professional research (edited)
