"Blockgeeks redefines learning--making it more interactive, engaging, and inspiring."

Blockgeeks is definitely the best platform I've found to learn about anything and everything about blockchain, and I can honestly say I've never had so much fun taking a course before. The instructors provide very thorough explanations regarding the topic you're focusing on. I like the way that the courses I've taken so far have strongly emphasized real-world implications and situations in order to contextualize theoretical concepts. The workshops and webinars are incredibly valuable, and I appreciate how Blockgeeks has provided its users with content in a variety of different learning forms. The website is very easy to navigate and not overwhelming (this is key because there is so much information and a ton of different courses to choose from!). There is something available for everyone--from the beginner introductory courses to the more specialized ones and everything in between. I've learnt so much in such a short period of time, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who might be interested.
