DNotes EDU recognizes the difficulty people will have making the transition to a digital financial world of cryptocurrencies, without first having a basic level of financial literacy. Knowing how money and the financial world works, will help them understand the importance of cryptocurrency. Without some knowledge on both of these subjects, they may find themselves the victim of financial fraud.

The financial literacy and planning modules are designed to be entry-level, covering only the basics. We have included more material on digital currency, to ensure that everyone has access to an accurate and unbiased exposure to cryptocurrency. All material is broken down into modules and sub-modules, allowing the reader to digest one concept at a time if they wish, or look for information on a specific topic only. An index at the bottom of each page will take you to material covering a particular concept or term.

Since everything we do today that involves money, is at some point online and at risk, we have included a Security module, with a basic introduction to “Online Security & Fraud Protection“.

DNotes EDU is a self-funded project by certain members of the DNotes team and community. We have included material on DNotes digital currency for anyone wishing to learn more about it, but this in no way represents investment advice. Any cryptocurrencies, financial products, or businesses mentioned in any articles or videos are there strictly by chance, or because a video they made or appeared in, did an outstanding job of explaining a concept. We take a conservative, long term approach to the industry, believing that success will come to the groundbreakers that abide by the law and follow the standards of good business practises. Our goal is to provide truth and trust in cryptocurrency.
