Meet the founder

Hi I am Markos Koemtzopoulos and I am the founder of elementalcrypto. 

I started Elementalcrypto back in 2017 because I couldn’t find a simple explanation of how crypto works. 

Fast forward to today and I have condensed all the knowledge I have gained into a few hours. 

Prior to founding Elemental Crypto I worked at Google for 12 years where I 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.

This Course Is Perfect For:


Beginners who are just starting out

You're a smart person but you feel dumb when people explain crypto to you


New investors who are buying crypto

You are about to start buying cryptocurrencies but you only vaguely understand the underlying technology


The Crypto Curious

You've been following the crypto space for a while, but you want a structured course to deepen your understanding.

What you get:

By the end of this training: 

  1. You will have a mental map of the crypto ecosystem and you will be able to categorize 90% of cryptocurrencies that are being promoted into one of 8 buckets. You will know who the leader in each category is so that you can compare and you’ll be able to use your own judgment about whether it’s worth your time to research further. When someone talks to you about xyz coin you will automatically know which category it belongs to. You will immediately be able to think: “Oh this is this type and it has these characteristics. The leading player is xyz”
  2. You will understand the technology and the overall crypto ecosystem. You will understand words like layers 1, layer 2, decentralized finance, NFTs, yield farming, DEX, passive income, mining, and stablecoins
  3. You will become familiar with some of the most important coins and tokens. You’ll come to appreciate the innovation in the space and understand why people in this industry are so excited about it
  4. You will learn basic concepts such as how wallets, blockchains, exchanges, and security work in crypto.
  5. You’ll be able to hold an intelligent conversation about crypto and have an opinion about where things are going for specific categories. You will no longer feel dumb when discussing crypto with others.
  6. You will be able to interpret a Tweet or a video about crypto. You will understand the vocabulary and acronyms the person is using.
  7. You know how everyone ends their videos with “This is not financial advice and do your own research”? I will show you how to research a coin and framework that you can use to take a stance.
  8. You will also learn some valuation frameworks. 
  9. Do you get overwhelmed by the sheer number of coins and tokens people talk about? You will be able to contain the fear of missing out and will be less overwhelmed by the volume of comments because I will show you how influencers operate, what you need to keep from them, and what to discard. 
  10. You will understand how to earn passive income in crypto. You will learn how to earn a return on your crypto and distinguish overhyped projects from ones that have better fundamentals. 
  11. This is not a trading course but I will teach you some basics about investing and some key aspects of trading. This will give you a beginner’s foothold and help you avoid losing money but I will also point you to resources where you can learn these skills better. 
  12. You will understand the risks and learn how not to lose your money and gamble it away.
