Crypto has gone through an eventful year. Decentralized exchanges and platforms that allow users to trade, loan, or borrow cryptocurrency have soared in volume.
The State of Crypto: A Builder’s Guide From Crypto Startup School

Developers are taking advantage of the flexible, interlocking nature of blockchains to create new applications that build on one another.

Prices — the aspect of crypto that tends to receive the most mainstream attention — have surged this year as well, with Bitcoin hitting its all-time high this month.

While price trends can and do change, such rallies do tend to bring in more users, more developers, more interest, and, as a result, more innovation (as we’ve previously written about in connection to crypto’s “price-innovation” cycle).

All this new interest and activity heightens the need to demystify crypto, so that all of us can better begin to piece together the implications of what is a complex new computing paradigm.

We’ve compiled fourteen videos from this year’s Crypto Startup School — along with summaries, show notes, and key quotes — to help in that effort. The collection offers not only a company-building playbook for entrepreneurs, but an overview for anyone interested in learning more about crypto. (And check out our bonus video — a documentary following the progress of several participants in Crypto Startup School — at the end of the course videos.)

We hope it’s a useful resource for people wishing to do a deep dive — or just to dip their toe in the crypto waters, in 2021 and beyond.
