Have you heard the terms "Bitcoin" or "Cryptocurrency?" What about "Ethereum" and "Litecoin?" Or "Coinbase" and "Bittrex?" Do the terms "distributed ledger," or "alt coins" mean anything to you? How about "HODL?" Blockchain is confusing. There's a lot to know, and trying to figure it out can be confusing.
In 2017, the total market value of cryptocurrencies exploded. Popular digital currencies like Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Ethereum saw annual returns of roughly +2,000%, +8,000%, and +10,000%! This type of growth is unheard of in traditional markets, but blockchain isn't traditional. It's brand new, and it's not showing any signs of slowing down.
There's plenty of misinformation floating around. And you're busy. You have other things going on in your life. You don't have time to find the right podcast episode, the latest news article, the best tutorial video. On top of that, you're worried about getting hacked.
What you need is a single, trusted source where vetted blockchain experts can explain the most pertinent information in simple terms--a quick solution that gets you up to speed and into the game. That's why we created BlockTeam, the curated community for blockchain enthusiasts. We partner with blockchain experts, bringing you exclusive content from the brightest minds, all under one roof.
BlockTeam's content contributions come from a range of experts, but the platform was created by Simon Bogdanowicz and Jesse Tevelow. The idea is that two heads (or seven, or fifteen...) are always better than one. Learning together just makes sense. The key is increasing the signal-to-noise ratio, which requires constant management and content curation.
