Most of our content on Galvan Learn is focused on health and wellness, but since Galvan is using some super cool technologies to help you be healthier, we also like to teach you a thing or two about those. One of the technologies Galvan is leveraging is blockchain, which allows you to have greater ownership of your data and rewards. Blockchain is paving the way for the future of the internet, called "Web3," so we put together the best resources so you can start learning more.
Want to learn about Web3, blockchain, crypto, all of the above... but don't really know where to start?
If this is you, you're in the right spot. I started learning just a few years ago and it was difficult to educate myself with so many sources swirling around.
Luckily for you, I have compiled a list of the BEST resources to start learning. This includes YouTube videos, Instagram accounts, Twitter Accounts, Newsletters, Books, and more!
Best of all, I have made sure all of these are FREE!
First things first, let's understand the difference between Web3, Blockchain, and Crypto. Here are some great YouTube videos explaining what they are.

Now that you have a basic understanding, it is important to know about the two biggest cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin and Ethereum.
There are thousands of cryptocurrencies out there, and one of the most confusing things as a beginner is understanding why we need more than one (we probably don't need thousands of cryptocurrencies, but there are many that are useful).
If you can understand Bitcoin and Etheruem, you can understand pretty much any other cryptocurrency as they usually have a similar function to one of the two. This makes identifying new cryptocurrencies easier by saying: "Oh, yeah that one is kinda like Ethereum."

There are a lot of great resources out there, but I have narrowed it down to the best 1-3 per category.
You are not going to become an expert overnight. If you really want to learn you need to flood your existing world with the best content possible. If you use Instagram every day, follow the best Web3 Instagram accounts. If you check your email every day, subscribe to these newsletters. If you enjoy a good book, read these books.
As you slowly soak in daily content you will find yourself becoming very knowledgable over time.

Above all, the best way to learn about Web3 is by using it. Galvan is making it easy to start learning with its Node Software. The software allows you to connect a computer you already own to the blockchain and generate daily rewards. You will also be able to create a crypto wallet through this process, and learn about other Web3 basics. To learn more about Galvan Nodes, check out this page.
