3 Reasons Why Tokoverse is the Go-To Place for Crypto Education

In the twenty-first century there are more university graduates around the world than at any point in mankind’s history yet the jury is still out as to whether our so-called civil society has become any better for it. Granted, education holds the key to the future because as Nelson Mandela puts it, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Countless world leaders have utilized the power of education to indoctrinate the masses to effect the changes which these leaders desire. Little wonder therefore that for better or for worse, education has been described as the “transmission of civilization” although there are subtle differences between going to school and receiving an education because one can be schooled but still remain uneducated. As Albert Einstein once said, “Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.

Through the ages, a fundamental question which educationists have struggled to answer is the true notion of education. The common ground is that education should inspire inquisitive thinking by implanting in students an inquisitive ability which is why it is said that “a well-educated mind will always have more questions than answers.” In addition to asking inquisitive questions, the inculcation of the capacity for consideration is also commonly accepted to be one of the main objectives of education because as Aristotle explains, “It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

In the context of the crypto domain where there is the pertinent risks of frauds and scams which give rise to the need to do-your-own-research (DYOR), the ability to inquire and the capacity for consideration are the twin blades which could help cut through the webs of falsehood to remove the veils of ignorance thereby opening the door for investors in the domain to safely tap into the immense financial potential of cryptocurrencies. In this regard, crypto investors would do well to heed the wise words of Benjamin Franklin who once sagaciously advised that, “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.

Blockchain Education and Crypto Literacy

When it comes to learning about the underlying technology of cryptocurrency i.e. blockchain, there are no lack of options around but CoinDesk through the second and latest edition of its annual ranking of Top Universities for Blockchain for 2021 sets out the best of the lot. In CoinDesk’s 2021 ranking which assessed 230 universities from around the world by taking into consideration a string of factors including scholarly impact, campus blockchain offerings, employment and industry outcomes, cost of attendance and academic reputation, the National University of Singapore (NUS) came out on top thanks to “its multiple blockchain research centers, its frequently hosted blockchain-themed conferences, its many blockchain clubs, its company partnerships and its masters program in digital financial technology.” Other Asian universities which made it to the top 10 list of CoinDesk’s 2021 ranking include Hong Kong Polytechnic, Tsinghua University and the Chinese University of Hong Kong which came in sixth, eighth and ninth respectively. As for the United States (U.S), the University of California, Berkeley came in third while the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) came in fifth.

When it comes to crypto literacy however, the prevalent state of affairs does not look too promising. The core ideology of cryptocurrency is to democratize financial services but the realization of this ideology requires cryptocurrencies to be of mainstream use which in turn requires the general population to know how to use these currencies or at least understand what they are about. In other words, the realization of the immense potential of cryptocurrencies would require the masses to be crypto literate which is particularly critical given the scope of personal freedom and the resultant individual responsibility that comes with the ownership and use of these currencies. Alas, the State of Crypto Literacy Report published in November 2021 by Crypto Literacy, which is an industry initiative led by Coinme and CoinDesk, noted that 96% of the U.S population had failed the crypto literacy test. If the U.S which stands as the global financial epicenter is labouring from such a wide gap in terms of the level of crypto knowledge among its population, one can only wonder about the state of crypto literacy in other countries. Fret not however, as help is on the way.
