We’re excited to announce the launch of Folks Academy, a free online video course covering everything from the fundamentals of blockchain to advanced topics of Decentralized Finance (DeFi). In addition, you’ll be able to learn how to use every feature of the Folks Finance platform and how to leverage it for extracting the best from your crypto holdings!

Folks Academy will provide our community with a curated selection of free, informative and engaging videos which cover everything you need to become a PRO! The Academy is easy to navigate, with two categories of videos to browse: DeFi & Blockchain and Folks Finance Tutorials. The former will teach you about aspects of blockchain which create the foundation of Folks Finance, while the latter will give you all the info on how to make the best use of the Folks platform.

Once you’re finished with a video, you can take a quiz to test your knowledge! To incentivize the educational journey, you can screenshot your test results and upload it to, completing quests to enter the Folks community leaderboard. The more quests you complete, the more points you’ll earn, and the higher you’ll rise!

While blockchain technology evolves to have easier access, education is the path to onboarding the next wave of adoption, which is why Folks Academy is so important for the growth of Web3.

“Education is the primary thing the crypto industry needs in order to grow,” said Ibu Karel, Head of Partnerships at Folks Finance and lead creator of Academy content. “We have all this amazing tech and opportunity, but the learning curve is still incredibly steep — too steep for most people to handle. If we can simplify the crypto basics and make learning not only easy, but fun, it’ll be a much more enjoyable experience for new people joining the community.”

Don’t miss out the opportunity to start learning today with Folks Academy!
