The Realistic Trader – Crypto Currencies
The Realistic Trader is officially recognised as an Accredited Provider with the CPD Standards Office. Delegates will be issued with a CPD Certificate of Attendance for inclusion in their CPD records for their professional body, institute, regulator or employer.
So, why do I need to know about these?
Cryptos are the EVOLUTION of Money and Blockchain Tech is the REVOLUTION of Trust. This is a big as deal as going from Bartering to Coined Money 2400 years ago or from Coined Money to Digital Money in the 1970s. What the Internet did for Communication, Cryptos will do for Money. As a Crypto can’t simply be printed willy nilly like the Pound or Dollar due to their Cryptographic algorithms and that they are decentralised, open sourced, transparent and you can now send money INSTANTLY with zero fees, it’s a paradigm shift for Money.
I would never have had the confidence to invest in Cryptosporidium without Siam’s course. It explained things in a simple non tech way and gave a simple formula for crypto investment.
Fantastic Cryptocurrency course, has really demystified this new way of exchanging currency and enabled me as a basic user of technology to become invested in crypto’s! Thanks Siam.
