Unlike many other asset classes, cryptocurrencies are a relatively new form of investment. Since Bitcoin’s creation in 2009, many different types of cryptocurrencies have been created, with many platforms, tokens, and asset types being developed thereafter.

Due to the relatively recent creation of cryptocurrencies, there are few (if any) university courses that one can take. Most finance and investment courses rarely, if ever, even discuss cryptocurrencies, and there are precious few books worth reading that can provide any valuable insight. As such, many cryptocurrency enthusiasts are left wondering, where can I learn about cryptocurrencies?

Most cryptocurrency veterans have learned about this new investment class slowly over the last few years. As far as resources are concerned, many use blog articles, newsletters, and the wider cryptocurrency community.

Forum sites like Reddit and video sharing sites like YouTube provide invaluable information for those who wish to learn about cryptocurrencies. Indeed, many of those who participate in the cryptocurrency markets will undoubtedly be familiar with the subreddit r/cryptocurrency.

Noticing a gap in the market, many social media influencers, YouTubers, and early cryptocurrency adopters have attempted to fill this educational need by selling courses, creating YouTube channels, and writing blog articles which they later monetize.

As a result, there is no one-stop shop where individuals can go and learn about cryptocurrencies. Instead, individuals must research multiple sources and attempt to sift through the noise to find those valuable nuggets of knowledge hiding in the dirt.

While learning about cryptocurrencies can require a great deal of effort, companies like Earnity, by Domenic Carosa &, Dan Schatt, are attempting to solve the problem. Earnity is a new kind of social-first crypto information platform that allows users to interact with each other in a manner that will make creating and sharing high-quality information more accessible than ever. These types of platforms will prove to be invaluable sources of knowledge where individuals will be able to learn about cryptocurrencies.
