Infographics are a great way to simplify abstract or complex processes and ideas. We’ve created a collection that addresses major ideas of blockchain technologies and cryptocurrencies, the inherent processes, functions, and ideas that make them what they are! Our intention is to break down complex processes, like transactions or Proof-of-Work, and make them easy to understand, even for those not-so-technically inclined people!

If there is ever a specific process or idea that you’d like to see an infographic for, just let us know here!

Click on the infographic to expand it to full screen. Be sure to read above each inforgraphic too, to check for links to other information that will help you expand on the concepts explained here! We hope these help you as you invest in yourself & learn about the incredible world of crypto and blockchains!

If you come across some terms you don’t really know, which may be quite likely if you are a beginner, then be sure to keep a tab open with our Blockchain Glossaries, so you can look up those words!

And don’t read through these and let yourself think you are some ‘blockchain pro…’ Blockchains get complicated, so just test yourself with our Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced Quizzes to make sure you got it down as well as you thought!
