There’s never been a better time to educate yourself about the cryptocurrency space as major institutions continue to fraternize with the space, countries around the world are issuing their own state-backed digital currencies and popular mobile apps make buying digital assets easier than ever.

And there’s no need to feel like you’ve missed the boat either. According to a report by Crypto.com, the number of global crypto users is expected to surpass the one billion milestone mark by the end of 2022 – up from just 295 million the previous year. That means by the end of 2022 an estimated one in 8 people will be involved in the crypto industry in some way – and you can be one of them!

What to expect from the pre-Consensus Crypto Unlocked webinars

Starting on Tuesday, May 10, 2022, there will be two webinars taking place per week for a total of three weeks (see timetable below.)

Each session will include a 30-minute exploration of a hot cryptocurrency-related topic, such as meme coins, non-fungible tokens (NFTs), mining and staking, and will cover matters such as:

  • What it is.
  • How it works.
  • Its history and market performance.
  • Where experts predict it could go next.

These will be followed by 15 minutes of Q&A, where viewers can ask the moderator and guest speaker any burning questions they have on the subject.

Who are the Crypto Unlocked webinars aimed at?

The Crypto Unlocked webinars are tailored toward complete beginners and those who are still getting up to speed with the digital asset industry. That being said, they will also serve as a great opportunity for more experienced users to brush up on their crypto knowledge.

All content will be delivered in an easy-to-digest format and will act as the perfect primer for people looking to attend Consensus 2022.

Crypto Unlocked webinar schedule

Our hand-picked crypto-focused topics span a range of market sectors and will give viewers a holistic overview of the industry.

For those interested in making investments in the crypto space for the first time, we’ll also include information on all the risks, tips and tricks to be aware of so you can make the most informed decisions possible.
