Enjoy- thank you very much...that's really rewarding to hear! Feel free to share any feedback, and best to you - welcome!


Thank you so much man! I'm just starting out and getting noticed is the hardest part in the early stages. I'm working on it, and after being in crypto since day 1 it's nice hearing your refresher course. Thanks! Any tips or help on how to get my head in the door would be great.


I thought this was very good. I especially appreciated the way he explained what all the different cryto currencies did. I'm still very new to this information, and this will be very supportive to my future choices. Thanks so much.


There is a bunch of information out there and it is like drinking from a firehose but Omar has one of the most current news channels and he seems to be able to communicate his knowledge well.

@crypt0, that was a nice presentation. I was looking forward for some conclusion statement in the end while it ended abruptly with ETH. Nice work .

Spread the word! The presentation is just like your Youtube channel. It was very entertaining, informative and practical. I would like to hear your thoughts on Apps, Currency and Platforms on the blockchain. They seem to be the three pillars of the future of crypto.

You are intrested cryptocurrency trading, upvote my posts and follow

wow thanx for sharing

Thanks for sharing very inspiring

Nice presentation man. Small improvements on the slides: use larger fonts, avoid bullets.
Keep pushing, we like what you do !

Sounds like Omar did learn a lot in his time mining the #Ethereum . What a unique experience to have - I wouldn't have minded trying that.

It'd be funny IF Google was taken out (because they are so HUGE - I'm sort of more for 'the Underdog' in things, or startups ).

At 6 minutes in ,when Omar speaks to #Derivatives I shrieked - I HATE manipulators... my feeling is that ruins things - SILVER, for example, would have been WAY higher if not for manipulators.


It's good that he goes into the history of things a bit -- interesting what he said (at 9 min. in) about Thomas Jefferson's ideas, & the Govt 'borrowing money'.

Lord, I laughed when he spoke about the dude who BOUGHT a PIZZA with some #bitcoin (that's 10 minutes into the video). GEEZ ! That guy must be regretting that Faux pas !

DEVOTE a bit of time to watching this 20 Minute video - IF you'd like an overview of Money & Bitcoin & the BLOCKCHAIN (Learn how to conserve yr #Wealth )

I rarely resteem but I appreciate your work and contributions to the cryptocurrency community! Wishing you much success!
Upvoted and resteemed!

Excellent presentation, keep up spreading the word.

Thanks for positng this! very useful

Great information.

I haven't gotten Storj X to work, I might need to mess with that again.

I am just new to cyptocurrencies and all those people sharing great information really amaze me!

A friend recommended me IOTA and I think it's a Sleeping Giant!

really good presentation, very informative, I'm new to this platform as well as the whole idea of cryptocurrencies. I was always aware of them i just didn't see the benefits of getting involved until now. I appreciate you laying out all these basics for beginners like myself to get started on the right foot.
