CoinDesk has a wide variety of newsletters that arrive in hundreds of thousands of inboxes every day, but this is the first time we’re rolling out an email-based course.

Investing in cryptocurrency can seem overwhelming and difficult to get started in, whether you’re a seasoned investor in traditional markets or new to trading and investing generally. As the managing editor of Learn at CoinDesk, I want to bridge the gap between where people are and guide them to where they want to be. I hope by the end of the course readers will feel confident and secure in their crypto investing decisions.

So what can you expect from our Crypto Investing Course?

It’s a manageable eight-week course to help you learn what you need to know about cryptocurrency and digital assets to begin investing intelligently and safely, without overwhelming you with tech jargon and overly complicated strategies.

Each week, on Tuesday, I’ll break down some key concepts that will build knowledge around everything from technical analysis to indirect ways to invest in crypto to how to stay sane in a 24/7 market. I’ll also highlight some common scams and red flags so you can spot those “too good to be true” promises and avoid falling prey.

Thanks for reading and please email me at with any questions, suggestions for future courses you’d like to see.
