crypto-curious to crypto-savvy

"Every smart person that I admire in the world, and those I semi-fear, is focused on this concept of crypto for a reason. They understand that this is the driving force of the fourth industrial revolution: steam engine, electricity, then the microchip - blockchain and crypto is the fourth."

Welcome to HowToBeginCrypto!


If you made it to this page, chances are you have heard of bitcoin, maybe even some other cryptocurrencies and that "blockchain technology is the future". You are crypto-curious, but don’t really to begin. 

You want to learn more and understand what all this talk about crypto actually means. You are even tempted to invest a little bit, but when you try to google some information, you quickly feel overwhelmed by the technical and financial jargon. And you are not alone! Of those trying to get started in crypto, the vast majority give up shortly after as they find things confusing and too complicated to figure out by themselves.

I have spent the last four years educating myself on this space and have been actively investing in cryptocurrencies since early 2020. It has been a steep learning curve and I have made quite a few mistakes along the way. That is why I decided to build this course -  to help you get started more easily, do things the right way and avoid the mistakes I made.

is a complete guide that will not only teach you the basics of blockchain and cryptocurrencies, but also how to start investing safely, how to actively participate in and to benefit from this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that blockchain represents.

"The blockchain cannot be described just as a revolution. It is a tsunami-like phenomenon, slowly advancing and gradually enveloping everything along its way by the force of its progression." 

 - William Mougayar - 
Blockchain Advisor, Investor, Mentor to Tech Entrepreneurs 

Why get involved in crypto... now?


The simple answer? Because we are at the very early stages of one of the largest wealth transfers in history. And you can be part of it.

 The Internet as we know it is the underlying technology that powers almost everything in our daily lives is about to be upgraded “under the hood”. Most people will never know the difference and will simply be pleasantly surprised that some things happen in a more fluid, efficient or less expensive way. For those few who dare to take a look behind the curtain and get involved, however, this period represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to generate potentially life-changing wealth.

More importantly, cryptocurrencies provide an equal opportunity for all. You don’t have to be an accredited investor, “know the right people”, have studied finance or have millions of dollars available to invest in order to benefit from this unique opportunity. 

Paradigm shifts like this have happened before - think of the steel empires, the  real estate boom, the Internet changing forever how we interact with each other, work and do business. Each of these shifts provided a huge opportunity for early investors and we are about to see the same with blockchain technology. 

Blockchain is a new foundation on which innovative teams and companies will build new offers and services that make it easier, more efficient and more cost-effective for companies to run processes and systems. Cryptocurrencies are both the form of payment that is used on these different blockchains and a way for you to invest in a blockchain project or company. The course covers this in far greater detail, but as a simple analogy, you can think of blockchain companies as startups and of cryptocurrencies as a way to invest in these companies. Among those building this next generation of services and applications are the Google, Amazon, Facebook or Netflix of tomorrow. The trick is knowing how to find them now while they are still massively undervalued!

ere is a short, 8-min overview of why he believes that blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies are the biggest investment opportunity of our lifetime - and no, not the usual opportunity for only the rich to get richer, but "an every person opportunity" - as long as you take action and get involved now

Who is for?

HowToBeginCrypto is NOT another one of those “make millions through crypto in just a few weeks” hypes. Instead, the course teaches you how to take a realistic and cautious approach to understanding the fundamentals of this new digital asset market and to investing for the mid- and long-term.

The course will fast-track your understanding of this nascent technology and equip you with the skills you need to get started and to take advantage of this once-in-a lifetime opportunity that comes with being an early investor in the technology of the future. 

In summary: 

HowToBeginCrypto is right for you, if...

  • …you know that any new successful investment starts with educating yourself 
  • are motivated to learn and willing to put your new knowledge into action
  • … you take responsibility for your actions and know that only you can control your personal finances and decisions 
  • … you want to diversify your investments responsibly and you accept the level of risk that comes with a young and volatile market such as the digital assets market

About your instructor

Hi. My name is Ben and I am  an experienced technology consultant, digital entrepreneur and blockchain & cryptocurrency coach.

More than a decade's worth of experience in the software industry have helped me specialise in taking very technical topics, making them accessible for "normal" people and to help them understand the why you should care behind technology.

I am currently teaching modules on blockchain and cryptocurrencies as part of a diploma in Financial Education at the Université Catholique de Lille, France, and have also completed the Blockchain Strategy Programme for executives at the University of Oxford.

You can find my full LinkedIn profile here.

I have recently partnered up with Alkimi Akademi and am very excited for this course to now educate even more people on blockchain and the opportunities this new technology provides.   

What our clients say about HowToBeginCrypto

For the last 5 years, I’ve been interested in cryptocurrency. Yet, I did not take any action as all the information I found was either hype, very high level, or too complicated to understand what it was all about. I kept asking around and someone referred Ben. I asked for 10 minutes of his time and it turned into a hands on , very practical - no hype - educational experience which is enduring and ongoing . His advice is sound, wise and eye opening. Granted , you have to do your own research , and invest time and effort , as with anything else in life that pays off. Ben is a no bullshit , levelheaded and kind coach who explains the process in clear understandable language for us “no math PHD” people. The result is a very nice portfolio of safe crypto investments which has done very well. Highly recommend!

Anneke K.

This has been a game changer for me.  Initially I was more skeptical than even curious about crypto but as I saw what was happening in the market and intrigued by so many well known investors hopping in, I knew I needed to learn but was immediately overwhelmed.  Ben was incredible at making this complex space approachable and straightforward.  He guided me step by step until I not only felt comfortable but even confident about buying, storing and selling different cryptos (including some very under the radar ones).  While I appreciate this is an investment for the long-haul, I'm very pleased with the first years' gains which would never have been possible without Ben and his approach.

Chris N.

There’s not a lot that Ben doesn’t know about crypto, and working with him I went from a relatively skeptical novice who felt they’d made all the crypto investments they might want to already, to wanting to go further, learn more and invest more heavily based on the opportunity available. Ben presented facts and recommendations that were so helpful and I left feeling empowered to make these choices alone and figure out a solid plan that puts me firmly in the future that is being created all around us! The course had everything you need and you can go deeper if you want, or stay high level basics, too.

Ellen D.

Ben’s course is great! Very insightful and he’s a wonderful coach. If you are a crypto 101 person , and like a white glove treatment, I’d highly recommend the personal coaching . If you're tech savvy and have dabbled a bit, the self-learning course will suffice and provide you with very practical advice. Ben is very knowledgeable, approachable and passionate about the subject and future of crypto !
