The blockchain is moving further into the mainstream world. But some fear not as fast as it should be due to its complexity for the non-tech folk.
One company, HybridBlock, is paving a way for this game-changing technology into the general masses and making sure it is given the public understanding it deserves. The team believes that education is the key to mass adoption of cryptocurrency and is one of the main factors holding this adoption back.
That’s why built not only as a coin exchange similar to Coinbase, but also an educational tool, HybridBlock offers tutorials and information on how to enter the crypto market to the casual investor.
Founded by the world’s most decorated winter Olympian and NYTimes best-selling author, Apolo Ohno, the HybridBlock ecosystem has four modules or levels.
The first one is BaseTrade, an easy-to-understand and use coin exchange designed to attract flocks of first-time traders and investors. Tearing down that great barrier question of “How to buy cryptocurrency?” and after a quick verification, BaseTrade will offer a user a simple how-to guide on purchasing cryptocurrency.
The next step from BaseTrade is HybridExchange, which is a wallet and exchange. It will allow novice users to create trade books and trade through difference exchanges.
The third one is HybridTrade (HybridTerminal), the world’s first downloadable standalone cryptocurrency trading terminal. Designed to access the API’s of partner companies, this terminal would bring automatic and more complex trading to the masses.
Along with three distinct trading platforms, the team at HybridBlock have designed HybridCentral, an educational platform which will host educational resources and modules to view using their app. Topics will include investment basics, trading crypto, wallets, exchanges, and taxes.
Progress and plans
Apolo Ohno has gathered a strong team for HybridBlock which can be viewed here.
The team decided to initially target the 4.4 billion Asian market but hopes to branch out globally in the future.
The Hybrid token’s pre-sale started on the 15th of January 2018. While HybridBlock’s public sale is slated for April 18. One can sign up to participate here.
The team hopes to have HybridTrade Beta and HybridFX launched on May 18.
It will be interesting to see how HybridBlock grows and gains first tangible results. Because HybridBlock’s educational opportunities will be available to international investors in developing economies, paired with the blockchain technology, it has the potential to revolutionize the economies of developing countries and accelerate growth around the world.
