Hey, guys, complete newb here. I want to start learning about blockchain online but there are so many options out there that I can't decide. I just did some bit of research here and there and found that Coursera is offering this course called "Blockchain: Foundations and Uses" by Consensys Academy. The course is about $99 if I want the certificate and the graded items (not sure what that means). So I want to know:

  1. Is this a good place to start? Any alternatives?
  2. Should I go for the certification? Does it even matter in the blockchain industry?

My ultimate objective is to be somewhat of an expert in blockchain and hopefully able to start a career from it or even a business. I am very excited and bullish by its potential but I don't know how to start. I have no coding background but I do intend to learn a programming language at some point (any recommendations by the way?).

Any tip here would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Também não entendo ainda, mas aparentemente 99% do pessoal aí investindo tb não entende.
Desisti de tentar entender por matérias e fui para a prática. Fiz uma conta na Binance, abriu na hora, já mandei um Pix de 100zin pra testar e comprei uns ETH. Não tem aprendizado mais rápido que esse.
Agora tô fazendo esse curso no coursera (gratuito sem as provas) que é sobre Ethereum, basicamente. Devo dizer que tô compreendendo melhor agora.
Tudo que serviu como moeda na humanidade trouxe tensão quanto à aceitabilidade. É uma grande aposta e tem muito a evoluir ainda, mas já dá pra ter uma boa noção de como pode ser o futuro se tudo isso continuar sendo aceito.
Por enquanto tenho só ETH e DOT, mas quero pular aí para as aleatoriedades de shitcoins que sobem e descem astronomicamente.

  1. Learn about Blockchain as Technology - Understand what powers cryptocurrency. Coursera Blockchain Foundation & Use Cases is a good way to start ( ). Audit those courses for free information but you wont get a certificate.
  2. Learn about Bitcoin & Ethereum as they have the highest market cap. Their official site is good enough for starters.
  3. Binance, Kraken, Coinbase are good place to start for investing. But remember, unless you are actively trading never keep your assets with exchanges for storage. (Not your private keys, not your assets)
  4. Do not follow youtube crypto personalities, reddit or any other place for investment advises.
  5. Read whitepaper of all the projects and look into the team (LinkedIn) and their past experience. Also look for team member association with past failed products. (More advisers as team member more bullshit the project is.)
  6. When investing, ask your self does the project solves any real use-cases or is the project better than its competitors (You need to identify why it is better like better technology or better development team)
  7. Refrain from day trading until you have some experience in Market and know how to read charts and indicators. (Newbies always lose money)
  8. Always take your profits and don't be too greedy. Reinvest after taking profits when the price dumps.


There are lots of copy projects that are utterly useless but hold a good market cap. They might or might not last for long period of holding.


You start researching on Ethereum, IOTA, SingularityNET, Golem as a starter. (Not an investment advice)

Great thread! Whiteboard does a great job simplifying complex content . Teachyourself seems like a great resource for beginners.

Here are a few that I found useful personally:


Ethereum: (you can view the course and skip the certification if you don't want to pay rightaway)

Find your tribe if you are a woman in crypto:

Question: When did you put money in crytpo. Before you read and understood it, after you went through everything and felt confident or somewhere in between the two?
