CoinDesk is an integrated media platform for the next generation of investing, exploring how cryptocurrencies and digital assets are contributing to the evolution of the global financial system and the future of money. Our vision is to inform, educate, and connect communities through news, data, events, and research.
As part of that mission, CoinDesk aims to create an authoritative library of information around bitcoin, cryptocurrency and related topics with guidance on how to apply it to personal finance.
Cryptocurrency and digital assets are an entirely new, digitally native system for building personal wealth and savings. The current system leaves out too many people because it's confusing, lacks clear guidance on how to get started, and largely leaves it up to individuals to do their own research. CoinDesk’s Learn section will demystify crypto for anyone looking to educate themselves about this new asset class and how it’s disrupting global finance. Our Learn section aspires to be the most trusted on-ramp for a mass consumer audience — the next generation of investing.
