Research Outcomes:
During the partnership, the researchers seek to evaluate the current state of crypto investors and those who are interested in crypto investments—their attitudes, knowledge and needs for cryptocurrency education. Based on these results, gamified educational prototypes and content will be developed together with Steam Exchange. These approaches will be further evaluated and improved with current and potential cryptocurrency investors, to create novel solutions of the future for cryptocurrency education.

This research partnership and the need for education around digital assets stem from the lack of tangible educational content currently available and the rapidly increasing popularity and use of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. Changes to the way users conduct business and make transactions are becoming increasingly prominent. Part of the educational content will highlight how cryptocurrencies provide certain advantages over traditional systems while at the same time, highlight the risks involved with trading digital assets. These risks range from technical and legal risks to drastic market swings. It is therefore important to improve investors’ understanding of cryptocurrency, digital assets, and help them make rational investment decisions; helping create the next generation of smarter, more informed investors.
