Welcome to the Impossible Academy
We are excited to have you join our community of learners. This is the start of your journey in learning more about cryptocurrency and the ever-growing space it exists in.
The Impossible Academy is designed to provide you with reliable and valuable information sources. With our curriculum, you will learn the necessary basics that will help you get started on your Crypto learning journey.
The Academy for Everyone by Everyone
Our team carefully combs through the material to ensure that topics are adequately explained and updated. We are fortunate to have a vast pool of resources and information but this also means that sometimes we might miss out on some awesome work.
As such, we highly encourage you to share any information, resources, and materials that you come across and have benefited from. After all, we are here to learn and grow together!
You can easily share materials with us by clicking on the big blue button in the top right corner of our website. Yeap, the one that says “Got content? Send it to us!” and we will review it to see how it can be integrated into the curriculum.
The Impossible Academy is a project for everyone and we invite all of you to contribute when you can. Even if it is just to provide feedback on how we can continue improving. Feel free to share your thoughts with us in the “Feedback Submission” under “Community” on our home page.
Introduction to Crypto
“Cryptocurrencies” and “blockchains” are now hot words that you can see sprinkled across the Internet. A quick look at social media or news outlets will certainly give you a peek into the space.
The crypto space is meant to provide fair opportunities to users around the world regardless of status, income, background, and more. By removing the barriers that are typically present in traditional finance, there is better inclusion for everyone.
Cryptocurrencies can be understood as ‘digital money’ that is based on a network. This network exists on a large number of computers around the world. Because of this, cryptocurrencies can exist outside the control of governments and central authorities.
Today, the crypto space has grown into a complex ecosystem with numerous products, concepts, and mechanics. As the space continues to grow and mature, now is as good a time as ever to dive in!
How Impossible Academy Works
Through the Impossible Academy, you will learn the fundamentals of cryptocurrencies, the blockchain, NFTs, the metaverse, and more. Our curriculum is divided into three main paths which are Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced.
The curriculum works by sifting through content across the Internet and compiling the best resources available for each particular topic. In each lesson, we will introduce a brief overview of the topic along with some context before pointing you to external resources.
Most lessons will also contain a knowledge test section that you should be able to answer before moving on. This could include questions or short exercises.
Don’t think of the Impossible Academy as your typical school where you cram as much information as you can and then regurgitate it. Our curriculum is dynamic and will continue to grow with the space. New resources and topics will be added whenever necessary. Your goal should be to build your foundation with the Impossible Academy and continue the learning journey.
The Impossible Academy is written in English and maintained by English speakers. Given that most, if not all, of our content is in English, it is highly recommended that you are comfortable learning in English. This is especially important for the Advanced materials which tackle more complicated topics. In the future, we hope to be able to provide content in more languages to reach users around the world.
As you move through the curriculum and learn more about the crypto space, you might be introduced to terms and concepts that are unfamiliar to you. We highly encourage you to spend more time on these topics and terms.
Other than that, we also want to motivate you to seek out additional resources that help you understand better. Feel free to share anything you find!
After you have completed the curriculum, you will have a better understanding of the terms, concepts, and mechanics of the crypto space. This foundation will be the basis you can rely on as you begin to dig deeper.
However, we would like to take this opportunity to remind you that while the Impossible Academy is here to provide you with resources and learning materials, you will still need to invest your time and effort to reap the best results. Don’t skip anything!
