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

We hope you have enjoyed meeting some of the new professors - we have the rest of the new team members for you to get to know this week.

We are definitely seeing the standard of the homework posts improving week by week.

However some people are still trying to cheat the system by posting plagiarized work.

Plagiarism will not be tolerated in the Crypto Academy. Our detection methods are getting better every week, and our penalties are getting more severe.

Do the research, produce your own work, do not plagiarize other people’s content, and you will be rewarded.



The Steemit Crypto Academy Courses - Week 10

These are the courses for Week #10…


@abcallen [ China ]

This week Professor @Abcallen’s lesson is all about learning to write posts on the Steem blockchain.

The homework task involves using steem.buzz to write a ‘personal introduction’ article using at least 5 Markdown commands. If you have a reputation of 65 or over you should participate in Steem community activities and write activity articles.



@levycore [ Indonesia ] - assisted by @alphafx [ Nigeria ]

This week Professor @Levycore is taking an introductory look at Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs).

The homework task involves describing one popular project that uses NFTs.



@pelon53 [ Venezuela ] - assisted by @imagen [ Venezuela ]

This week Professor @Pelon53 is taking a first look at Tokens.

The homework task involves exploring the three main types of tokens - Security, Utility and Equity.



@fendit [ Argentina ] - assisted by @sapwood [ India ]

This week Professor @Fendit’s lesson is all about making your cryptocurrencies work for you through investments.

The homework task covers risk aversion, different types of savings products and setting up investments on Binance.



@stream4u (India) - assisted by @yousafharoonkhan [ Pakistan ]

This week Professor @Stream4u’s lesson is all about Price Forecasting.

The homework task sets various tasks to do with price forecasting.



@kouba01 [ Tunisia ] - assisted by @yohan2on [ Uganda ]

This week Professor @Kouba01 is all about Cryptocurrency Contracts For Difference (CFDs) Trading.

The homework task sets various questions to be answered about Cryptocurrency CFDs.



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 10 - 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 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 45 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…



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

Hey! Since there is no separate post about the new editor, I will write here. I really liked the new editor and I'm sure you already know about some bugs ...

But maybe you will think about adding a translator to the new editor?

I know this is possible. My husband was a programmer and created a chat with Google translator. It was very convenient.

I wrote a post yesterday about a new editor with my suggestion.

Thank you so much for that, and I think we need a smooth transition and also it would be wonderful if we can have a toggle/button to enable or disable the editor.

Thank you.

Steem on.

That'd be very great. I hope they do that

Thank you very much for this is another powerful assignment that will broaden the minds of steemians and makes us to become relevant in our todays world all over the globe. Once again thanks

This post came at the right time and I think we can stick to the old editor....legit idea from @steemitblog

Thank you for bringing the old editor back. The new one had a bunch of useful features but the bugs outweighed its usefulness. Especially, in the case of mobile users. Gues now I'll get a few fewer complaints about the editor from the members of the BOI community.

Exactly ;)

This is a very nice post. You made the post with a very good idea. Your post will touch everyone's mind. Especially attracted my mind. Your post has been much, much better. You have explained the meaning of your writing in a very simple way. That's why I like it even more. Thank you so much for posting that.

I hope it will add lot more of info regarding crypto.

Are you going to fix the steem wallets?

Thank you so much @steemitblog. You guys are really amazing.

We see there are a few bugs and issues with the editor so we are reverting temporarily back to the old ‘classic’ editor for the timebeing while we fix the issues.

Please the old editor is just fine. Can we please just stick with it?

It gives a better preview experience than the new one.

Thank you for this amazing task you indulge us in and for sure it will enlighten us steemians for the greater growth of this great community. Nice post @steemitblog.

Thanks @steemcurator01 for your feedback and your support. You made the right decision -the new editor needs some work.

aww I missed the start of it:-(

I am excited to learn more this week and try to make even better homework tasks. I got appreciated by Crypto Professors last week and it has motivated me a lot.

The new era of learning from professionals is here and all of it is absolutely Free.

Thanks to Steemit

Ready to join back this week.
Happy to know about the editor!

That's great, it will help us learn more and more!
Happy to be part of Steemit!

Hi guys, dont forget to visit my profile and my post, hope you day good

Hi @steemitblog (Steemit Team), I have already posted that my post has not been curated by @steemcurator02 and now only 21 hours left from payout. Same problem I faced in 1st season and now again facing it.

This is the biggest disadvantage of Decentralized platform that there is no authority to whom we could complain. No response from you either. There is no specific rule regarding curation of contents. So what has changed from season 1 to Season 2. Who will address this problem. If one's content or homework post is not curated in time, then what be the solution to it. Can the content reposted? Can anyone answer these questions. Is @steemcurator01 the one who might be contacted?

I will be waiting for your response. My post link is given below, and if it is curated in time, it will be a great favor. Thanks

https://steemit.com/hive-108451/@mawattoo8/crypto-academy-season-2-week-1-or-or-homework-post-for-yousafharoonkhan-or-or

Assignment 2

Información muy valiosa sin duda.

Good day @steemitblog. I have been participating in the steemit crypto courses and I have observed some things . I am going to state it but please look into it.

  1. I don't know the objectives of the @SteemitCryptoAcademy community but I want to guess that teaching or impacting knowledge to members who do not have any knowledge about crypto is one of the objectives. If that is true, I want to say that a wrong approach is taken in the marking of homework post.

Why did I say that? A student learns first from the knowledge impacted to him. You cannot teach a student to learn what you have not taught. Most of the homeworks given by the professors are outside the knowledge they projected. They give homework outside a knowledge which possibly everyone do not get the grammatical construction and expect that after a research work, we write in our word...I don't see that possibility 100%.
I mean there is no way one is not going to copy anything directly from his or her source.
The concept of cryptocurrency is not our everyday life that we can easily write about. Many things are new to many persons
Some persons started cryptocurrency when they joined steemit and in a way do not know steemit is a crypto platform. Bow do you expect such persons who are enthusiastic about cryptocurrency to learn when they are marked down in every homework because of a little act of plagiarism.

If a person gets an info from the Internet and cites the source, the person should be plagiarism free at least. But the way it is, even when the source is sited, some profs still see it as plagiarism.

I was not there when this platform was developed but I think the concept of plagiarism should be confined to the steemit platform because I can see another person's post I like here and copy it for myself. I know this is bad. But I feel it should not be taken outside steemit to sites and search engines where info about a concept is provided.

  1. I plead with you to provide a consolation curation and voting for people who score below the benchmark of 5 which was stated at the beginning of the season 2 of this course. It is not nice that after one had spwnt 4,5, 6, 7 hours writing a post with sometimes sleepless nights gets nothing home because the individual didn't score a mark of 5. As far as the homework was attempted, let there be a token reward for such person. I think that would be an encouragement to do better for such people who couldn't score up to the benchmark.
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.

It very hard most a times and discouraged to do research on the things you haven't learned in your life before and present them within a few days. @steemitblog promised us with an upvote to encourage us, per the voting rules stated, I believe I qualify. Cryptoacademy Season 2 Home work 1, I got 8/10 and Season 2 Home work 2, I got 5/10. Through this comment I want to remind @steemitblog of what they promised the @SteemtCryptoAcademy student.

Hello there @steemitblog and @steemcurator02, I have homework that have been reviewed and rated with a passing rating by the professor but until now don't have reward yet, it's been 5 days already and near to payout. Please have a look before it payout.

Buenos dias @steemitblog quisiera saber si con mi reputación de 51 ¿puedo participar en los cursos y en las publicaciones de tarea?

Hola @steemitblog, tengo una tarea a la que le faltan horas para vencer y nunca fue corregida Por el profesor ni curada. Espero que me reconozcan algo por mi Esfuerzo en dicha tarea.
