As we all continue to navigate through uncharted digital waters, making sense of headlines around bitcoin, cryptocurrency, and blockchain can be incredibly daunting. It can also be difficult to separate fact from fiction and knowing who you trust in a crypto world that is currently unregulated.
It’s not too hard to find parallels between the Blockchain economy and the early days of the Internet. I clearly remember Bill Gates and David Bowie being mocked on television for providing a vision of how the internet will transform our world. We all know how that story ended.
They say that everything happens in cycles and history will often repeat itself. Despite being an optimist when it comes to technology, I have observed how repeated headlines have declared that bitcoin is dead for the last eight years and other content spreading fear, uncertainty, and doubt. But blockchain and cryptocurrencies are not going anywhere.
The success of any emerging technology is determined by mainstream adoption. In an industry where the mantra has been “question everything you read and do your own research” I wanted to try and help listeners to my daily tech podcast learn more about how cryptocurrencies work and earn a little currency for free too. How does that sound?
Coinbase is a digital currency exchange headquartered in San Francisco that some techies call “The AOL of Crypto” But, it’s the perfect place to start and learn without the fear of being sneered at.
Create an account on Coinbase
First of all, go to Coinbase and create an account. Once set up, you are ready to learn about Coinbase Earn and begin exploring the world of crypto. Within a few hours, you will know the difference between OX, BAT, ZEC and XLM.
How to earn crypto while you learn about crypto.
You have now completed the Coinbase account set up processes. That wasn’t too bad, was it? How would you like to earn $50 worth of Stellar (XLM) by watching five short tutorial videos on Coinbase and learning about how it works? Simply click on this link and follow the instructions.
After watching each video and answering a few basic questions, you will be credited with a $2 XLM reward ($10 in total). To reach the maximum reward of $50, you will simply need to invite a total of 4 friends to follow the same tutorial using the unique link that Coinbase will provide you with at the end of videos.
Your friends are required to complete at least one lesson from the Stellar Lumens course for you to receive your reward. That’s it, you should now have $50 of Stella Lumens. More importantly, you have educated yourself and done your own research rather than listening to someone on the internet. Why not return the Coinbase Earn website and also learn more about OX, BAT and ZEC too. Welcome to the brave new world of crypto.
