Good for you! You are so right, you have to start somewhere! Congratulations on pushing yourself outside your comfort zone and learning something new.... and you're right it is EXTREMELY complicated! No doubt! You are not alone in that! It took me months to finally understand how blockchain works and I still learn new things about the cryptospace every day! Just remember, google, steemit, youtube, etc are your friend when it comes to looking for answers. If you have a question it is super likely that someone else has the same question and has posted the answer for you to find. The Mr. and I made a Youtube a while back explaining blockchain in 5 minutes, check it out, maybe it will help. Stay curious and have fun with it! You're doing great!
