We had another fantastic set of students on the April bootcamp, from a range of backgrounds including traditional finance, fund management and home technology as well as founders of new businesses looking for ways to integrate cryptocurrency concepts into their start-ups.
We also produced a new format for our course materials, pictured below! Now resembling more of a text-book we’ve packed in the course content so our students can follow along, complete tasks at the end of each module and take away a valuable resource.
The bootcamp was at the Lansdowne Club in Mayfair for the third month running, which provides a wonderfully central location and facilities for the bootcamp.
Here is our lead tutor William presenting, and computer research tasks follow at the end of every module for students to put into practice their new skills.
Our team is also on-hand to help with any technicalities and help everyone through the tasks.
Below you can see a live feed of data on the Bitcoin blocks which we use on one of the activities. Understanding the blockchain is one of the fundamental parts of the course and an invaluable skill to take away.
The bootcamp also introduces you to exchanges, how they work and how to trade. If you go on to investing in cryptocurrencies you will need to know how to onboard currency into various exchanges.
We go through the charts, trading pairs, market orders and limit orders. Students on the bootcamp then get the opportunity to set up their own accounts.
One of the final modules on the course introduces you to NFT’s.
After a presentation on the theory, the use-cases and the inspiring future we dive into trading. Here is a photo of our students choosing a Revv Racing car on OpenSea to use in a live blockchain racing game.
At the end of the bootcamp students also get to mint a free NFT to their brand new crypto wallets, created earlier on the course.
This is a special kind of NFT called a POAP, which stands for Proof Of Attendance Protocol. POAP’s will live on the blockchain as a permanent record of the events you attended.
The InCrypto Hub bootcamp is also a brilliant networking event. With crypto exercises throughout both days to get you collaborating, as well as many intervals to chat with our team and other students, there are plenty of opportunities to make some great contacts in the crypto world.
We also have an alumni group on LinkedIn! You’ll receive an invite after the course and be able to join our wider professional community.
