Get Into Cryptocurrency Trading Today

Cryptocurrencies or only crypto are causing much controversy in the financial space. Crypto has been one of the topics of intense discussions.

Their value gets derived from a complex chain of code or blockchain that can be shared with many computers but remain entirely anonymous.

For this reason, crypto has become attractive to both legitimate players and illegal money launderers or drug dealers

Aside from its intended purpose, crypto has also become a tool of intense speculation among traders.

There is a likelihood that you have heard stories of people who either lost hundreds of thousands while trying to make a quick back or people who became overnight millionaires

While most financial gurus see the great potential of blockchain and cryptocurrency, several others see it as a highly inflated asset, equating it to other bubbles of the past.

Despite the different views of crypto among experts. The crypto market has been growing at a rapid pace since its inception in 2009.

For instance, the market cap for cryptos in 2017 was about $21 billion, which has so far risen to surpass the $400 billion mark. But it also important to note that the rise does not indicate the market is without threats of downfall.

That is why there is a need for sound advice and education on crypto. 

Moreover, cryptocurrency is a constant learning curve. To some people, keeping pace with the ever-evolving crypto ecosystem is almost like a full-time job.

Novices might find it even tougher to start. Luckily, there is now an array of quality resources to boost your cryptocurrency education.  

Top Universities Offering Crypto Classes

Ten years ago, it was hard to imagine that universities and colleges would be offering something as disruptive as crypto or blockchain. But it is now a reality.

An increasing number of leading higher education colleges are offering more courses around crypto. 

According to Coinbase 2019 Leaders in Crypto Education list, there were twice as many students who took a crypto course in 2019 compared to the previous year.

Interestingly, most of these students (70%) are outside the computer science field. The report shows that 56% of the top universities in the world offer at least a unit on blockchain or crypto. 

Cornell University tops the list offering multiple crypto-based classes, with courses such as Introduction to Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies as well as 'The Anthropology of Money.'

Prominent schools such as UC Berkeley, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich, Stanford University, and the Cyprus' University of Nicosia were also among the top.

The increase in these courses shows that there is a burning desire among students wanting to learn more about cryptocurrency.  

Innovative Crypto-Specific Educational Resources 

Besides the formal education avenues, there is also a growing number of quality crypto education resources for autodidacts with different ability levels.

Here are some of the resources that will level up your crypto skills:

1. TokenTuber

This video streaming platform got designed to improve its audience's knowledge of all things crypto. Token Tuber is designed for masses, as it strives to eliminate the barrier of entry to the crypto world.

It hosts third-party content from different creators on YouTube. The platform has allied with several crypto exchanges. To integrate quizzes that incentivized users to demonstrate their knowledge of cryptocurrencies.

Participants get rewarded with tokens as well as a certificate of achievement.

Those who attained pass marks will be decorated as Accredited Crypto Holders, while those who fail to get recommended further learning resources. 

2. Binance Academy

It is the educational division of Binance. Unlike Token Tuber, this online academy has not done much to incentivize participation. But at least it has a clean presentation and offers several free resources.

The content has got grouped into five categories: economics, security, blockchain, Tutorial, and video. 

3. Cointelligence Academy

Besides offering quality market data on digital assets and crypto exchanges, this platform runs free seminars on crypto topics weekly.

These sessions are brought live on YouTube every Thursday. For experienced and novice traders, this resource is worth your time.  

4. Captain Bitcoin

Captain Bitcoin shares almost a similar concept with Token Tuber, as it hosts crypto videos and offers monetary rewards for completing specified tasks.

However, the financial rewards on Captain Bitcoin get activated via a referral competition. 

5. Earn.com

This site was acquired by Coinbase in 2018 to be part of its educational resource tools. It has so far ramped up its crypto section with many incentivized tasks, which get rewarded in Bitcoin.

To help you earn more cryptos at a go, the site offers more in-depth crypto-specific courses with a payment attached to it.

For instance, completing a course on EOS qualifies you for $50 of EOS tokens, while the course on DAI will pay you $20 worth of stablecoin. 

As a bonus, here are some crypto tips that will help you make better investment decisions.

Capitalize on Bitcoins

If you are a long term investor, then try to capitalize on BTC, as it has a competitive edge in the crypto market. In the last few years, Bitcoin has registered a significant rise in value.

On top of this, always invest your money when there is a drop in value. Then wait and see the magic. But that does not mean you forget that there are other promising coins. 

Consider Ethereum

Ethereum (ETH) is among the few coins that have witnessed a vast rise in the last two years. So, it stands out as the best option for cryptocurrency investment.

Perhaps the only time that it experienced a sharp downfall was in 2016 as a result of hacking. 

Only Invest What You Can Manage to Lose

Since the volatility of digital currencies grossly exceeds that of most investment assets, they are a conventional investment. There is also a lot that is still unknown.

There are only a couple of people who understand the ins and outs of the system. So, the advice here is to risk as much as you can afford to lose.

Just like it is stupid not to own any cryptocurrency, it is equally absurd to hold several cryptos you cannot afford to lose. 

With that said, cryptocurrency has beaten all the skeptics, so the cryptocurrency knowledge that you acquire now will be crucial as we head into the future.
