New to crypto?
Whether it’s the concepts, language or ideas that underpin crypto, it’s a sector that can appear inscrutable, and if we have to be honest, makes it a little difficult to know where to start. Our explainers provide just that – a starting point. They cover the basics – like what is proof of work – before moving to the more technical, and in doing so, will answer all those questions you either have, or will soon have, once you delve into the sector.
We understand that crypto elicits some strong feelings. It’s a rapidly developing sector and as a result, faces challenges. These challenges, and crypto’s often-times niche language and approaches may not be for everyone. But we’d ask you to give the sector a try and recommend reading some of our crypto in action pieces, which showcase how the sector is developing worldwide. Whether it’s offering a financial lifeline to people in Lebanon or improving digital inclusion in California, these uplifting stories might (just might) change your feelings.
So, you’ve got down the basics, and know your DAOs from your DeFi and dApps, but what’s next? MEV? Or maybe how zero knowledge proofs are used? We’ve got explainers detailing major aspects of the sector. So, while you might know what an NFT is, do you know how royalties for these tokens work, and why sometimes they don’t? Our experts do and happily share their knowledge.
We like to keep our content and perspective fresh. Our regular news analysis, policy briefs and comment letters explore and respond to events, trends and developing news stories. Our analysis is independent and non-partisan, ensuring that what you’re reading is factual and carefully considered.
Whether you’re 18 or 80, there’s a crypto course out there for you. How can we be so confident? Because we researched the education sector during 2023. From undergraduate tasters in crypto, to specialised, cross-discipline courses and offerings aimed at working professionals, there are lots of courses offered by a range of institutions.
And finally, do you need to keep on top of 2023 crypto policy?
