Because of the relative complexity of blockchain technologies and cryptographic resources, almost every single person in this sector today probably had difficulty understanding this technology when he set foot in the cryptosphere. Although this problem is changing rapidly, some optimists believe that accessible and easy-to-digest encryption resources can not be fast enough.
Digital Multimedia Legend and Crypto Startup Tackle Education Scene
Crypto is inherently digital, as a device connected to the Internet is a must when interacting with this nascent ecosystem. As you probably know, today's millennials are, like cryptocurrencies, digital beings, who are open to the use of technology to improve themselves and the world around them. Obviously, there is a large overlap between the aforementioned generation and the cryptographic resources, with consequent mass adoption rates with millennials in comparison with "generation X" and "baby boomer".
But again, there is still a resounding problem with education, because even millennials, with all their technological abilities, may not be able to fully understand how cryptography works and why it should (and has ) gained traction. And even the sites that offer this training today have not helped much, because there are some resources that are difficult to access, while others are boring to read and order.
Meet the Blockchain Report, a brand new online show that intends to revolutionize the way in which users, especially millennials, acquire information related to this sector. As revealed by Forbes, the new show, which will be shot in Santa Monica, California, is a collaborative effort between the cryptographic information provider ICO Watchdog and What's Trending, a world-renowned digital multimedia startup named to the Emmys which has collected over three million active followers from around the world.
The Blockchain report will provide an informative look at cryptocurrencies, as mentioned above, through a five-minute segment that will be broadcast almost daily, except at weekends. As mentioned earlier, this is not an old incursion into the cryptosphere, since Shira Lazar and Shawn Newsum, CEO of ICO Watchdog, will obviously be able to merge their media creation and cryptography abilities to produce an attractive, all-encompassing show, respectively. round to appeal to the needs of the public.
The first episode will be hosted by influential social media Taylor Nikolai, who is a famous Snapchat star who will hopefully tap into her social media skills to connect with Blockchain Report viewers. Speaking of his aspirations for this project, which is obviously one of a kind, the CEO of the criptovalute startup who supported this project explained:
"As the blockchain and cryptographic space become more mainstream, we plan to bring viewers to take a quick look at the latest developments and important news every day so that millennials can become better informed about an unnecessarily complex and fraught disinformation."
Kelly Curtis, a former Apple executive and banker at Merrill Lynch, has alluded to the fact that the millennial attraction of the show could pick up traction. The former institutional investor declared:
"Millennials will be more affected by this type of currency during their time.The cryptocurrency and the underlying blockchain technology on which it operates, will go through a maturation phase that millennials will be the most responsible for training, so that they continue to be interested in information and trends concerning this space. "
Coinbase, Crypto's daughter of gold, also recently made the decision to tackle education by introducing Coinbase Learn, a series of well-designed and informative web pages that highlight the technology behind some cryptographic assets. Along with the pages that highlight specific cryptocurrencies, Coinbase has also done its best to produce content that aims to answer the most common consumer questions, which include "what is Bitcoin" and "how it can encrypt make the world a place best".
While there are still some obstacles to this space, such as volatility as pointed out by Curtis and the lack of information resources, young people in this world still seem willing to allocate time and capital to cryptographic resources. As reported by NewsBTC at an earlier date, a survey conducted by eToro revealed that the younger the investor, the more in the crypt they are. So, despite their youth and relative naivety, this generation should not be counted in the race for the adoption of encrypted mass, which is a question of when, not if.
