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 4 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…

Please check the Professor’s post carefully for any special instructions they have given for their homework tasks. 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.

The Steemit Crypto Academy community

The Crypto Academy community is now 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.

We will be giving votes from @steemcurator01 or @steemcurator02 for good homework posts once they have been checked by the Professors. If a Professor has not visited your post after 2 days you might want to leave a polite reminder comment on their post.

You can also help grow the Steemit Crypto Academy by telling your friends about it and sharing the courses on your social media.

And if you know any crypto content creators do encourage them to come along and get involved. We will be on the lookout for more Crypto Professors soon.

Thank you

The Steemit Team


These courses are really helping us to learn more about cryptocurrency.

Bitcoin just like a bet. Its totally depend on luck. but steemit is only one of cryptocurrency that you can earn it by own effort.

Am I right???

The programme is very helpful thank you followed liked and can't wait to see what else you have

Do you feel your Crypto IQ rising every week?

nooo... I can't change the banner ! I would like to have my galaxy represented but can't :/ + ;'(

woot woot, I am the wrong class, it's way too advanced for me... I am still trying to setup my banner !

however if someone is interested to test his/her new skills in regard to wanting some hiveshit against steems... I am open to trade :).

This program is very helpful to make us understand various parts of crypto. I expect more people to join it so that they learn and this learning is worth it. Great work @steemitblog

Thank you very much for the initiative. I've spoken to some people about the crypto stuff and they are willing to join the platform.

One thing i noticed about some professors is this: They refuse to comment on the post of their students which is very discouraging . It is expected of a teacher to access and grade a student performance whether good or bad. If it's a bad performance, the student will gear up and be better. I don't buy the idea of silence on any input made by students irrespective of how poor it is. Feed back is important.

Thank you very much for your intelligence.

my biggest issue with the format of steem is text editing... as how it's written isn't displayed the same way on (spacing, distance) as in the box below. as such when clicking edit, it's hard to find words again, as for example here it's on this line but | one below on the next (mark |). unconforable. my 2 great shekel cent:).

very informative post ,try to learning

these courses are very useful I have been seeing some nppst they are great, from now on I am joining the tasks, we are going to train ourselves to make the best community !!
