Message From Me

Cryptocurrency is here to stay. While there is so much hype around it, many people are STILL unsure about cryptocurrency and have no idea where to start.That’s where I come in. I’m Ben, I’ve been many things: Harvard student (and dropout), Thiel Fellow, programmer, founder, and an avid crypto investor. I invested $10,000 in Bitcoin and Ethereum and now it's worth over 8 million USD.I first encountered crypto while working as a software engineer in Silicon Valley. What began as a side hobby has become my career. I’ve since spent years understanding and building my crypto portfolio, making a living off blockchain and NFT investments. In this class, I take you from absolute beginner (like zero knowledge) to being confident enough to open your first crypto wallet and invest in your first cryptocurrency.

01Intro to Crypto

Learn all about what crypto is, how it works, and how it’s used. We’ll dive into Bitcoin as a case study, and see how it’s changing economics and the internet. We’ll also look at some key mistakes and misconceptions about Bitcoin and crypto in general.

Module 1: Why Cryptocurrency is Revolutionary

Module 2: Why Bitcoin was Born

Module 3: How does Bitcoin Work?

Module 4: Introduction to My Crypto Investment Strategy

02The Ethereum Network

Ethereum is one of the fastest growing platforms in crypto. We’ll cover some more advanced concepts such as how Ethereum is solving its high gas problem, and automatic execution, and metamask. Ethereum is my favorite platform, and I’ll be telling you all about why I love it.

Module 5: Introduction to Ethereum

Module 6: Introduction to Hardware and Software Wallets

03Applications of Crypto

So you get crypto now, but how is it actually used? People often think of pixelated art, but crypto has so much more potential that goes beyond NFTs. Crypto concepts such as DAO, tokens, and swaps can make crypto feel inaccessible, but once you learn the language of crypto, applying it will become a piece of cake (sort of). On top of that, I’ll teach you how crypto is being used today, and what it could possibly do in the future.

Module 7: Use Cases of Ethereum
