Crypto Currency

What parents and carers need to know about Crypto Currency.



Cryptocurrency’s availability – and influence – has grown exponentially since Bitcoin debuted in 2009. Little over a decade later, there are more than 5,000 different types of cryptocurrency on the market. Some, of course, are more successful than others – but the concept has now established a sufficiently robust beachhead to thrive in the coming years.


This means, naturally, that cryptocurrency will be embedded even more deeply in our culture by the time today’s schoolchildren are grown. It’s incumbent on the trusted adults of today, then, to begin equipping young people for this new method of carrying out transactions online. This week’s #WakeUpWednesday guide brings parents and carers the essentials on cryptocurrency.
