Hip-hop recording artist Nas has sold over 25 million records worldwide over the course of his career thus far.  Songs like “If I Ruled the World” and “N.Y. State of Mind” have helped him become a legend in the music industry.

Since that time, Jones has opted to invest in the website Coinbase, a popular site where folks can purchase cryptocurrency. Moreover, the chart-topping musician also began purchasing bitcoin back in 2013.

While Jones is best known for his musical talents, he is also the founder of Queensbridge Venture Partners, a company which “invests in technology that transforms the way we live.” Queensbridge has invested in popular projects like the ride-share company Lyft.

Receiving an endorsement from a celebrity and businessman the caliber of Nasir Jones certainly helps boost cryptocurrency’s profile.

Fun Fact:

The Source, a popular hip-hop magazine, ranked Nas at number 2 on their list of “Top 50 Lyricists of All Time” in 2012.

What the FAQ is Cryptocurrency?

Bitcoin, Dash, Ethereum, Litecoin……you’ve heard the names on the radio, read about them in the news, even heard them in passing conversations. But, really, WTF is a cryptocurrency?

In this video, we will explain all the essential notes and components you should understand about cryptocurrency. Because it’s here to stay, we’ll walk you through the ins-and-outs of this digital phenomenon. Be sure to head over to our WTF is Cryptocurrency Guide, also, to make sure you got it all down.

What the FAQ is the difference between blockchain & cryptocurrency?

Part of the confusion around what is blockchain versus what is cryptocurrency is due in part to the terms that have come into use. Instead of being introduced by formal definition, the term blockchain developed from “chain of blocks.” Cryptocurrency is a sort-of portmanteau of “cryptographic currency.” But the fundamental difference between these concepts has to do with how distributed ledger technology is used. Our video gives you the run down! For more information on how these two go together, check out our guide page, where you can read up more on blockchain and cryptocurrencies.
