“I generally find it hard to understand the blockchain concept. Not that I don’t know what it is but putting everything together and ending up with a decentralized ledger seems quite challenging. You have to understand a lot of concepts and this just gets you into more confusion”. Well, those were the sentiments of a random Reddit user on blockchain technology two years ago.
Sentiments such as these come as no surprise. The blockchain council also admits that it takes hard work to learn blockchain technology. Blockchain technology is the invisible and world-changing innovation that formed the basis for decentralized finance and decentralized applications. Now, more than ever, it is crucial to understand it. To succeed, the blockchain industry needs the equivalent of the Library of Alexandria, and this is exactly what Shrimpy offers to the world.
Shrimpy Academy is an educational platform from Shrimpy that collects pure educational materials on cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology from across the internet and presents them in a seamless, intuitive, and understandable format.
Why did Shrimpy create the Academy? Because they realized that the content found within the industry offers (most of the time) subjective, deceptive, or poorly organized content. The situation makes it difficult for users to comprehend the inner workings of blockchain technology.
Shrimpy Academy thus acts as a special portal that helps users to jumpstart their decentralized education by overcoming the previously described issues.
In a nutshell, Shrimpy Academy is a free educational resource platform providing blockchain and cryptocurrency users with high-quality content about this disruptive innovation.

The technology is filled with strange concepts that are difficult to understand even for advanced users.

Whether you have just heard about blockchain and cryptocurrencies or have been part of the industry for some time, Shrimpy Academy is here for you. It is an intuitive platform for crypto enthusiasts at all levels and is here to make a difference in their crypto journey.
