Zero shit our blockchain & crypto masterclass is lit.

Learn by doing.  There are many elements in the blockchain ecosystem and these can be easily understood by creating a cryptocurrency.

In this quick 2 hour hands on masterclass we will guide you through how to make sense of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies by teaching you how to build a cryptocurrency from scratch.

We’ll go through how to use the blend of financial, technical engineering and economics required to create a fully operational cryptocurrency.

This is not a lecture where we talk at you for 2 hours (we don’t roll like that) it’s an interactive session that will not only teach you how to build a coin from scratch but also how you can apply your new found knowledge to evaluate blockchain projects and networks yourself.

We’ll be your shot of espresso but for blockchain.
