Our Level 1 Cryptocurrencies course is designed to give the learner a fundamental comprehension of how and why Cryptos originated, how/where they are evolving, and how to learn to trade them and discover market opportunities. A cryptocurrency (or cryptocurrency) is a digital asset designed to work as a medium of exchange using cryptography to secure the transactions. A defining feature of a cryptocurrency and arguably its most endearing allure is its organic nature: it is not issued by any central authority, rendering it theoretically immune to government interference or manipulation.

So why do I need to know about these?

Cryptos are the EVOLUTION of Money and Blockchain Tech is the REVOLUTION of Trust. This is a big a deal as going from Bartering to Coined Money 2400 years ago or from Coined Money to Digital Money in the 1970s. What the Internet did for Communication, Cryptos will do the same for Money.
