Multimedia Guru ‘What’s Trending’ & ICO Watchdog Cryptocurrency Education Show Initiative
Cryptocurrency & blockchain technology are now almost a decade old but remain a complex industry for the World’s larger population. Only a few people have managed to understand & contribute to the blockchain tech so far, even so it wasn’t an easy process. However, this is does not disqualify the efforts underway to educate the masses about the crypto assets & blockchain networks. Crypto enthusiasts are optimistic that more knowledge about this tech will be available to the market in many forms.
The ‘What’s Trending’ & ICO Watchdog Plan
Cryptocurrencies themselves are digital in nature given the similarities with devices when it comes to the Peer-to-Peer ecosystem. Today, these types of assets would be compared to the millennial generation, a people who are more open-minded to new technologies. Digital assets just like millennials are looking to leverage new technology for the betterment of services delivered to the user. As it stands, millennials have recorded higher crypto adoption rates compared to older generations.
However, the crypto adoption trend is yet to fully pick up even amongst millennials. Crypto analysts have attributed this to a knowledge gap existing on how and what it’s the purpose of crypto coins & the target market. A good number of millennials are still in the dark about crypto assets while those that may have tried to comprehend them lack good resources.
Recently, two companies collaborated to eliminate the information barrier between millennials & crypto assets. Initial Coin Offering Watchdog & Emmy-nominated ‘What’s Trending’ has started a working relationship that will see a crypto show filmed in California. Meet the Blockchain Report, will sensitize the millennial target market on how to interact with digital currencies in detail. What’s Trending stands a high probability of pulling a good crowd given its active followership of over 3 million globally.
Blockchain Report will be an educational platform about crypto coins as stated earlier; the show will dedicate a few minutes for these reviews. Furthermore, the project has good prospects given the strength of the two partners in blockchain & entertainment. ICO Watchdog CEO, Shawn Newsum, & the founder of What’s Trending have both agreed to supply their expertise in blockchain & media creation respectively to create an interesting show.
A popular Snapchat star, Taylor Nikolai, will host the pioneer episode of Meet the Blockchain Report show. The team behind this initiative hope that the move will leverage the star’s online clout whom might be crypto-friendly in the long-run. According to the crypto CEO behind Meet the Blockchain Report project,
“As the blockchain and crypto space become more mainstream, we plan to bring viewers a quick look at the latest developments and important news each day so that millennials can become better informed about a space that is unnecessarily complex and fraught with misinformation.”
Financial markets legend, Kelly Curtis who has worked for Apple as an executive & the Merrill Lynch bank stated that a milleniall target market is indeed the way to go;
“Millennials will be most affected by this type of currency during their times. Cryptocurrency and the underlying blockchain technology on which it operates, will go through a maturing phase that millennials will be most responsible for shaping so they will continue to be interested in information and trends that pertain to this space.”
Other players within the cryptocurrency industry have also made moves to help the masses understand digital assets. Among them includes the popular Coinbase crypto exchange, a leader in the market today. The team behind this project pioneered platforms such as websites to educate people about the digital currency technology. In addition, the team at Coinbase educates on specific crypto coins given that digital assets have different coin infrastructure. Other material on crypto covered by this exchange includes the benefit of cryptocurrencies & a clarification on the famous BTC.
Despite the ongoing challenges within the crypto sphere, it appears the millennials will gradually adopt this technology. At the moment, issues such as volatility have made most investors shy away but with the introduction of stable coins things might start to change. According to a news report posted on NewsBTC, the younger generation’s naivety is a big factor that may encourage adoption while stats show. Also, statistics show that a younger digital asset investor tends to hold a larger portfolio in comparison to other age bracket investors.
