Blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin, gained tremendous name recognition as a result of the hype-fueled 2017 bull market. Unfortunately, name recognition is still about all that there is for the vast majority of people. The concept of digital currency is still entirely foreign and confusing.
Now that we’re in an extended bear market, FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt) and misinformation have started to run rampant through major media outlets like Bloomberg and the New York Times, among others. The reputation of cryptocurrencies in the mainstream is far from positive. Something needs to change about the public’s perception and understanding of cryptocurrencies, if mass adoption is to become a reality.
So, what’s the solution?
There’s only one way to fight misinformation: education. You see, as long as people have the preconceived notion that cryptocurrencies are scammy, they are going to be reluctant to use any blockchain-based solutions. But if people learn about key benefits of blockchain technology and how to use cryptocurrencies safely in their everyday lives…well, the tides can turn rather quickly.
With that in mind, an innovative new project has emerged with a focus on educating the masses about cryptocurrencies. The project, CryptoZink, combines several unique features that are designed to facilitate mainstream adoption.
One of the key contributions CryptoZink makes to the cryptocurrency ecosystem is Zink Academy. Zink Academy is a proprietary educational platform that guides new users through the process of using cryptocurrencies for the first time.
Users will have access to a comprehensive content library of lessons on various crypto-related subjects. Additionally, subject matter experts will be involved in the process to guarantee the quality of the content presented and to help beginners advance their knowledge.
A distinctive aspect of the Zink Academy is that it incentivizes people to learn by rewarding users with ZINK Tokens for their progress. Scoring highly on a knowledge quiz, reaching higher learning levels, and demonstrating a commitment to learning can all earn ZINK Tokens.
And Zink Academy is not just for novices. The platform will have modules designed for both intermediate and advanced crypto users, enabling them to continually stay abreast of the latest advancements in the space. Furthermore, advanced users will also be encouraged to, and rewarded for, sharing knowledge with the greater community.
The CryptoZink Trading Platform
Zink Academy is a key differentiator that distinguishes CryptoZink from other projects in the space; however, there are many other compelling features. At the heart of CrytpoZink is a digital exchange for trading ERC20 and ERC223 tokens, with particular emphasis on cryptocurrencies that can make a measurable impact on the world.
In fact, CryptoZink will be launching a Token Curated Registry to encourage community engagement and to ensure integrity among the projects selected to list on the exchange.
Additional key attributes of the exchange include:
- Secure storage of digital assets
- A trading performance tracker
- Live telephone and chat support
- Trans-fee mining
By bringing together the exchange and academy, CryptoZink will build a community of knowledgeable and highly adaptive traders. More significantly, as the first exchange to emphasize education, knowledge sharing and community engagement, CryptoZink is making a major contribution to fostering mass adoption in the exciting world of cryptocurrency and blockchain/DLT.
