The Steemit Crypto Academy is now into the fourth week of Season 2.

We are pleased to see the standard of homework tasks increasing week by week.

It is definitely worth spending the time and effort researching and preparing your posts.

Not only can you earn good votes from @steemcurator02 if your homework posts meet the required standard, but each professor selects three top posts each week for an extra 10% vote from @steemcurator01.

Good effort earns more rewards !

Homework Guidelines

We are keen to ensure that all contributions to the Steemit Crypto Academy are of as high a standard as possible.

While the Crypto Professors may set specific requirements for some of their homework tasks we would suggest all students follow these basic guidelines…

  • Title the post with the format - Crypto Academy Week 12 - Homework Post for [name of Crypto Professor] …
  • Homework posts should be at least 300 words
  • All work should be your own - plagiarism will not be tolerated
  • Any graphs, screenshots, quotes etc used from other sources should be fully referenced
  • Any images used should be from copyright-free sources and fully referenced
  • Homework posts should include the tag #cryptoacademy and any tag specifically required by the Crypto Professor in the first five tags. It will also be good to include a tag for your country.
  • Tag the relevant Crypto Professor to help them find your homework post.

Please make sure you send your homework posts into the Crypto-Academy community…

Homework posts should be submitted no later than 11.59pm UTC, on Saturday, May 8th 2021. Note this is one day earlier than usual.

Please check each Professor’s post carefully for any special instructions they have given for their homework task. Once you have completed your homework post make sure you leave a link on the Professor’s post to ensure they see it.

Following all these guidelines carefully will help you gain higher vote rewards for your homework posts.

New Voting Rules for Season 2

To encourage people to do more research and put more effort into producing higher quality homework posts @steemcurator02 will now only be voting on posts that achieve a grade of 5 out of 10 or above from the Professor.

Additionally to discourage ‘content farming’ from multi-accounts set up purely to harvest votes from the Crypto Academy @steemcurator02 will only consider giving votes on homework posts submitted by people with reputations of 50 or above.

If you are new to Steem we suggest you join the Newcomers Community and do the Achievement Tasks there to get to know the platform and build up your reputation before joining the Crypto Academy…

To further discourage content farmers who commonly power down and cash out on a continual basis we will not, at our discretion, be voting on any posts from authors who are powering down.

Additionally to further discourage content farming and to encourage Academy students to build more of a stake in the platform we are introducing one further rule this week. We will not, at our discretion, be voting on posts from authors who do not have at least 100 SP in their wallet due to constant selling of the rewards from their homework posts.

The Steemit Crypto Academy community

The Crypto Academy community is ONLY for posts to do with the courses being run by the Crypto Professors…

Alongside the course posts from the Crypto Professors, the only other posts in the Steemit Crypto Academy community should be homework posts for the tasks set by the professors.

Please do not post general crypto related posts now in the Steemit Crypto Academy Community. Any non-Academy posts may be muted.

We hope as many of you as possible will join in with the Steemit Crypto Academy courses and do the homework tasks set by the Crypto Professors. You are free to follow as many of the courses as you want.

In this second season of the Academy we will be putting a greater emphasis on improving the quality of the homework posts.

We will also be putting even more resources into curbing plagiarism, content farming and other abuse.

We are keen for the Steemit Crypto Academy to provide a high quality learning opportunity for those willing to put in the effort to expand their knowledge and understanding of the world of cryptocurrencies.

Thank you

The Steemit Team


I'm still a beginner, so I think there's a lot to learn ^^ So it's more exciting ^^

Please need a clarification on the last part of the new voting rules, assuming my reputation is above 50 and my total Steem Power have not reached 100SP though I have never withdrawn any reward from my wallet. Will I be voted for?

Well done - you seem to have reached 100 SP now.

Greetings @steemcurator01 from Venezuela, I am a lover of cryptocurrencies, present my work in a class this week, it lasted a whole day to present it, the problem is that the teacher denied me because I did not have 100 sp, before publishing my wife delegated me what I was missing but even so the teacher did not validate my publication, I investigated and in the other classes of the week there are classmates who do not have the 100 sp or even delegates and their tasks were reviewed and received punctuation. What is this about? How would I be able to participate in the crypto-academy? I tried to sell my sbd to buy sp but they are very few and it is not enough for me. greetings @daniromero.

Hello @ steemcurator01, I have never done power down, I have a reputation of 52 years, I have been cured only 4 times if I remember correctly, the tasks have not been cured and I have a score of 7, the cryptocurrency task is not even I look at the professor, I used the money from the healings to learn how to do real trading on poloniex and Binance, I have done power up, and the SP does not go up. WHAT SHOULD I DO? I ASK YOU WITH ALL RESPECT TO VERIFY MY ACCOUNT, I WANT TO CONTINUE LEARNING AT THE CRYPTOACADEMY, BECAUSE MY IDEA IS TO TRADING PROFESSIONALLY! THANK YOU SO MUCH!

I wish I could take part in this educational community event. But I will work hard to get my reputation to reach 50. Then I will come and participate in these events.

By the way, can I complete these assignments and post them when my reputation has reached 50, does that work? @steemitblog

Problem solved - reputation now 50 😊

@steemcurator01 Sir, I am saying from Bangladesh, your support is very much needed. Please look at us. We are waiting for you in Bangladesh. Please look at us,

Respect @steemitblog
Respect professor @alphafx

Here I have completed the assignment last week and you have given a 9 there, and indeed the post still has the next 2 days to get votes, I am aware of the busyness and enthusiasm of the Steemian in this academy, but the reason I report now is because I am afraid that the results of my hard work will not get up vote from the Steemit team.

Thank u very much "Steemit team and Professor"

Yours sincerely @sayaalan

I think all contestants who meet the requirements will receive an upvote, and I always receive an upvote on the 6th day, but I don't regularly attend classes because I am busy farming in the garden.

Sorry I just shared the experience and didn't mean anything else, moreover @sayaalan is a great Academy Crypto Student. There are many things I have to learn from you.

 2 years ago (edited)

I want to thank u vry much for u'r feedback on my comments, all things can be learned on steemit, i also learned a lot from u, u publish great photos there, @irawandedy are a great photographer. U also help many people by doing charity.

However, I am aware of the busyness and enthusiasm of the Steemians in this academy, I have seen some outdated posts, and got no votes.

For example, we take the example of the @abdulsabor post,


That's what I read in the comments column, the reason why he reposted it☝

Next, When I read some of the comments from the steemians who participated here I also found many similar things.

I don't blame anyone here, as I said earlier that:

I am aware of the busyness and enthusiasm of the Steemian in this academy, but the reason I report now is because I am afraid that the results of my hard work will not get up vote from the Steemit team.

The greatest crypto social media platform in the world now

Hola como están, las clases son excelente cada día y me encanta aprender en estos talleres

Hola, buenas noches no había leído esta información hasta ahorita, antes de comenzar con las tareas, había venido hacíendo algunas tareas, solo tengo unos meses aqui pero una reputación de mas de 50 y 42 sp muy poco Pará seguir con mis tareas. Solo una vez hice Power down , solo para conocer la plataforma y saber como eran los modos de transferencias y solo fieron 2 sp que los regrese a los dias. (solo fue prueba) quisiera saber que tanto me puedo tardar para poder subir de 42 a 100 y poder seguir con mis tareas.

Buenas noches, yo venía participando en la cryptoacademy pero está nueva regla de tener un mínimo de 100 sp me deja fuera de las actividades, es muy triste ya que estaba totalmente dedicado a ellas y me sentía que el conocimiento adquirido rendía frutos.

Pls i was posted to Abia State, so how can i follow up

I @gwillz is very happy getting to know about this community @cryptoacademy and i have participated in the just given homework, hopefully waiting for upvotes.
Here is the homework professor @Abcallens

Does the votes/Rewards from Steemcurator02 are Gurrented?

I think yes, because some professors said that If any of your post on which we grades expires without an upvote then we can Re-Share that post.
So, the answer is yes.

I'm also worried about the new 100sp rule, I have never powered down and I'm not even halfway there😅 I'm new on the platform and I'm trying to climb my way up, and this change took me unprepared

In fact, my homework just got rejected by the professor due not meeting the 100sp, it's kinda unfair since many of us were unprepared, would be nice if these changes were announced one week before applying them. As a newcomer in still getting familiar with the concepts of the platform, powering up was something I was unaware of until now

Please @steemcurator02 visit my homework that is graded 6 by the professor, This is the 6th day

great effort....thanks for sharing this information....

 2 years ago 

Today is my 9th day on Steemit and my reputation is 34 now...Hoping my achievement task 1 and 2 will be verified to push me to 50 to be able to take part in these classes...

I have always loved to know more about blockchain and cryptocurrency. I think this community will help me do more...will strive to get my reputation to 50🙏 @steemitblog

hola muy buenas tardes ya tengo 3 días de haber publicado mi tarea en el horario comprendido por la criptoacademia y el profesor @imagen nunca me corrigió quisiera tener aunque sea una respuesta de este problema? tenemos que valorar el esfuerzo e investigación de los usuario aquí mi tarea.

Hola @luis.lucia,

no entregaste la asignación a tiempo, ya respondí tu publicación...

Por favor, lean con más detenimiento...

every week I have wanted to participate I hope this week to be able to participate in the academy

 2 years ago 

I would like to join these activities, I am hardly growing in Steemit. And learning from the world of cryptocurrencies, but I have not yet reached 100 SP even though I have grown rapidly in the last few weeks. Can I do the activities even when it is not taken into account for the cure?

Everything you have said is correct

Hola @steemitblog. No me han curado mi tarea en la que obtuve puntuación de 8.5/10. Ya se va a vencer

También repost mi tarea que fue calificada y se venció sin recibir votos, es ésta.

Por favor puede decirle a @steemcurator02 que pase a curarme las tareas.

Tengo (49) de experiencia y pensé que debía trabajar un poco más para alcanzar el (50) y así participar en las crypto tareas. Ahora con la nueva norma de los 100SP no podré participar hasta trabajar mucho más, soy muy nuevo en steemit y solo tengo 19SP. ¿Que debo hacer para alcanzarlo rápido? @steemitblog

Just a different question, but do you know if there is a guide somewhere that is up to date on how to set up a Steemit witness? :)

@steemitblog , por favor manda a los curadores a curar el post de @stefanosiso de steemfoods

Hello dear @steemitblog, I have participated in these tasks since week 1 of season 2 and I have been on the steemit platform for almost two months, I love this academy and it is unfortunate that this week I do not know if I can participate because my voting power does not reach at 100 SP.


Realmente estoy agradecida por la experiencia en la academia, me ha creado una visión de futuro muy distinta, hasta ahora podía participar porque ya tengo la reputación de 51 pero no llego 100sp, esto me tiene entristecida y espero lograrlo para ingresar de nuevo a esta...

The Steemit Crypto Academy is now into the fourth week of Season 2.

Great. Successful Educative Program.

I want to ask about my post that has been rated but why isn't it voted ??? This is my post that was not voted on, I have 20 hours left, but my post hasn't been voted yet, thank you


Hello, dear friends of steemitblog. I have a doubt regarding this activity and it is the following:
I notice that there are several teachers and that everyone chooses one and follows it. I ask: can I follow more teachers and publish for them?
The other question is: will we have a fifth season?

Puedes participar en todas las tareas si quieres. Cada quien elige la clase que considera será más fácil de desarrollar y si le interesa aprender sobre el tema.

¡Muchas gracias, corazón!

Hola amigos tengo una inquietud mi tarea de la semana pasada dirigida al prof @imagen no fue revisada , que puedo hacer ??? Aquí el link para que por favor me ayuden gracias ...

Hello dear @steemitblog, I have participated in these tasks since week 1 of season 2 and I have been on the steemit platform for almost two months, I love this academy and it is a pity that this week I do not know if I can participate because my voting power does not reach at 100 SP.

Good day @steemcurator01 and @steemitblog

I have been a humble student of these course. I have always done my best to do well but my SP isn't up to 100. I don't know what will become of me.
I hope to hear from you soon.

I would suggest joining communities, networking, creating content, voting, and interacting with the community to build your SP. You're nearly there. Keep doing what works.

Thank u for the suggestion.

Hello @steemitblog, @steemcurator01 and @steemcurator02 I hope you are doing good. I want to discuss a problem.
I made a homework post of week 4 given by Professor @kouba01. I nearly worked 2 days to complete that homework and when I post it respected Professor kouba01 told me that my post is neither verified nor curated due to new rule of atleast 100 SP in wallet.


I am really shocked after listening that I have spent my 2 entire days to complete that post. But not aware of this new rule.
However, talking about not enough SP in my wallet then the answer is you can check on my account that many of my post or I must say Most of my post were not curated for whatever the reason but I make sure in my every post that they will always be on standard and of original content. I have never never down my SP either.

So if I am not get curated then how can I achieve 100 SP target.
That's all I am waiting for your response.
Thank you

I believe that I will join this next time. Crypto is so perspective now

Hy I am working since past 3 months and working very hard my reputation is also 56 but I ain't able to reached up 100 sp because my several post were not curated or upvoted I never power down my steem, even never withdrawn reward from my wallet please help me out because I am attached with this informative platform thank you waiting for your heavy support...
Regard @salemumar

Hello @steemitblog, I'm doing work for 4 consecutive weeks and I have also done homework post for previous weeks. I have reputation of 50+ and I have never done a power down . I face alot of difficulties to increase my SP . How I increase my SP if I'm not able to post according to your new rule? I have been working for 2 months but my SP is only 50+. Here is the proof .



Nice information. I really hope that @steemcirator02 gives a fair vote to all the steemians regardless of which community he posts from. Because not all communities are fair. They only vote for relatives and close friends.

@stermblog , steemcurator01 and @steemcurator02

Can one retake a homework post again, if he wasn't scored well within the time limit?

I like the Steam Character Academy very much and there are not many posts that malmute from

Hi, I am wondering if someone could check out my work and let me know what you think?

Not sure the best way to get this in front of you guys, but I have some ideas that I think would be very beneficial for STEEM and for Some might even be pretty easy to implement as well... Take a look at see what you think!

Thank you!

Thanks very much @steemitblog for the great work, project driving and the love for everyone to know more about Crypto. The education has been interesting enough. Actually I have learnt a lot and will continue to learn a lot. I keep on encouraging my members to join and have more insight.

I hope to join this week since I missed the last week homework due to some task I had to accomplish.

i have a question to you @steemcurator01 why my task never veryfied?

informative post thanks

super duper

For a beginner like me this should help me a lot

Am so glad to be part of this community and I must say i appreciate the good works of all the CRYPTO professors , for giving a home work task which I must say this in a way has helped crypto academy member to have more knowledge on what crypto is all about.
I look for forward to give my own entry post for this particular home work task.

beginning is important to grow . there is a platform where everyday we help each other to grow with knowledge and rewards

Thank you very much for a nice article.

Hello. Please how can I join this lovely community and possibly get verified. I'll love to do the assignments too. @alphafx I'm in Nigeria and from Nigeria too. Can you please put me through?. Thank you 😌

You are very helpful and you attain to our problems and concerns handsomely.. I always appreciate you

Thank you very much

Dear @steemitblog (Steemit team), it is very nice to be part of each week but there is an issue regarding marking standards. Professor @fendit is just discouraging people. Giving very low grades, I don't know why. Take a look at my post and decide.

Discouraging people? That's the last thing I do, I'm afraid :)
Instead of blaming it on me, focus on what you can improve. I can surely suggest you a lot of really good posts I've read in my task so that you can learn from them as well.

Can you please compare these two posts. Mine and given below. So what I am missing. Can you suggest me please. What is special in this post and what I am lacking.

Hola! Hice una tarea con mucho esfuerzo hace unos días, pero no fue calificada ya que no tengo los SP suficientes. Qué cantidad de SP debo tener para seguir publicando en esta comunidad? Agradecería mucho si me lo pueden aclarar.

I can't wait to participate as much as I could in all these lectures.
Thanks to the Steemit team for this platform.
It had really been of of great help.

I like the Steam Character Academy very much and there are not many posts that malmute from
