CoinMarketCap launches crypto education portal 'CMC Alexandria'

CoinMarketCap’s new crypto education portal aims to provide holistic content for newcomers to the industry. Veteran crypto markets data aggregator CoinMarketCap (CMC) is venturing into new territory — cryptocurrency education. CMC first made its name as a price-tracking website for cryptocurrencies back in 2013 and has remained at the center of ongoing efforts to establish reliable data sources for investors in the industry.  Now the site is looking beyond market data and aiming to provide more holistic educational content that can help orient newcomers to crypto. “Cryptocurrency is no longer the niche interest that it once was, but neither is it completely mainstream — it’s somewhere in the middle,” a CoinMarketCap representative told Cointelegraph.  The site is therefore looking to leverage the user traffic it already has to support “the cryptocurrency revolution” by “educating everyone that ends up on CMC about these emerging technologies.” The representative said:  “We are first trying to provide the educational building blocks that will help those new to the crypto space become more familiar with key concepts that many crypto enthusiasts already take for granted, ranging from the nitty gritty of how Bitcoin transactions work, to more important considerations like how to keep your crypto safe.” The new platform is called CMC Alexandria, in reference to the ancient Library of Alexandria of the second century B.C.
