Some say that cryptocurrency, blockchain and distributed ledger technology are the future of money and will revolutionise the global financial system. Others say it is simply a bubble that will eventually burst. It’s certainly true to say that many early adopters have done very well by investing in this new technology. It could be argued that getting in now is still early. Aside from the financial incentives, there are a number of additional benefits that may serve to revolutionise more than just the financial system, perhaps having as large an affect on our lives as the internet has. In fact, as the true promise of this technlogy is grasped, the term cryptocurrency and its implication of referring to money could be thought of as too limited. Apparently, knowledge is power. Newbie Crypto aims to provide the means for crypto newbies to learn about this exciting technology, the implications for our society and thus become empowered to make informed decisions.
