I like the language, I like the old school look but modern layout that somehow teaches that crypto isn't just about making money but also about learning the new internet. Keep it up!
What I like in some articles in the Learning section and also in the Myth Busting is the balanced view from both sides of crypto supporters and critics. Not always the case with pro-crypto education sites.

Came here from Academy, there's so much to read and learn about crypto, but the Learn Crypto articles seem able to provide a quick way to get basics, while keeping updated on what's new. More about web3 please!

The structured learning paths are great and can take someone with no knowledge of crypto to the stage where they can understand and talk about it with confidence. The glossary feature is also really helpful, and the formats of the articles are clear and engaging - thanks Learn Crypto!
Possibly one of the least technical crypto learning content out there – and I’ve seen a lot! While some articles definitely feel very geeky, most use simple language that makes sense.

Some hidden gems in the Features blog section. Would really really like to see more Real Crypto Stories too… something you don’t normally get to hear about from regular news.

Liked the way I can choose from the learning paths, wanted to know the Basics and ways to Earn crypto. Got me interested to learn a whole lot more.
Kept hearing about crypto, couldn't understand what the fuss what about. Now I get it and am stacking sats.

Learn Crypto's Mission

Learn Crypto is a free education platform designed to help users easily learn about cryptocurrency, with simple, relevant and engaging content.

We appreciate that for beginners, learning about cryptocurrency is both complex and unfamiliar, so we've designed the site to be accessible to newcomers for a full crypto knowledge base divided into five categories.

We believe in the potential of crypto, but for anyone new to the subject, just understanding why it has value is a challenge. To help those not yet convinced about crypto, our Why Crypto section offers easily accessible data to make a case for crypto.

Learn Crypto also acknowledges that cryptocurrency has its critics, so our TLDR section is designed to respond directly to the most common criticisms of Bitcoin (and other cryptocurrencies) as well as popular myths and misconceptions. These are purposely short answers to the big crypto questions.

We regularly add new content to the Learn Crypto blog to expose new perspectives on cryptocurrency, bust myths, provide suggestions to help you grow your crypto stack as well creative ways to just keep learning.

If don't understand the unique language of the subject, our crypto glossary will help, while you can extend your learning with a guide to popular crypto books and podcasts.
