My mission is to simplify the complex world of cryptocurrency for non-technical individuals.
Who am I?
My name is Markos Koemtzopoulos and I am the founder of elementalcrypto. I am also a Business Finance Analyst at Google where for the past 12 years I have advised crypto and gaming advertisers on their growth strategy. In addition to writing about crypto, I also teach as a guest lecturer at the University of Nicosia (UNIC) MOOC on Decentralized Finance. In addition, I also teach a course that breaks down crypto like you were 5 on both Udemy and Tutorialspoint.
I hold an MBA from INSEAD and a joint honors Bachelor’s degree in Economics and Mathematics from the University of Bristol in the UK. I am also certified by Duke University for taking their specialization on Decentralized Finance (DeFi) and by Johns Hopkins University for their Data Science specialization the knowledge of which I use in the forecasts section of this site.
Like many, I am intrigued by the potential that crypto and blockchain can have on the world.
I hope you enjoy reading this blog! Please share if you do.

Why I started Elementalcrypto.com
Since you were curious enough to visit this section of the site I will tell you all about Elemental Crypto and about how you and I ended up here.
About 3 years ago I was trying to wrap my head around crypto. I understood vaguely that there was potential but whenever I tried to dive deeper I felt dumb. There were just too many technical terms and jargon.
I thought there must surely be an easier way to make crypto comprehensible. And this is how Elemental Crypto was born.
This site aims to explain alt-coins and DeFi tokens in layman’s terms to non-coders, non-geeks, and people who don’t necessarily have a finance background.
Here is how I started
I made a map of all the knowledge one would need to navigate this site.
And then I just started writing.
I will walk you through all you need to know about each coin: What the hype is about; where the potential lies and what you need to be wary of.
If you are completely new to crypto I highly recommend you read the section on how to learn about crypto.
I decided to start this website because I prefer to absorb content by reading rather than listening to a podcast or watching a YouTube video.
There are so many podcasts and videos out there that it takes me an awfully long time to go through all of them.
I spend hours researching each article and I summarize everything in writing. Like with any writing, this means that you are getting all these hours of research condensed into minutes.
I prefer reading because it allows me to skim content and revisit and re-read parts I want to pay better attention to.
There is already a lot of quality written work about alt-coins. However, things can often get quite technical when you go down the so-called rabbit hole of crypto.
In this blog, I hope to provide an explanation of each cryptocurrency in as simple a language as possible. My motivation for doing this is to understand the crypto space well.
Like many others, I became aware of crypto-currencies during the 2017 bull market when Bitcoin hit $20,000. I couldn’t really wrap my head around what cryptocurrencies are about until early 2020 when I discovered better content online and better books.
I hope this blog provides you with a shortcut to get you up to speed on the crypto space.
