The DeFi Coach is excited to officially launch its new self-paced, crypto-focused online course, The Complete DeFi Course.

Similar to blockchain technology, DeFi has been gaining traction as a financial disruptor in recent years as it removes the need for financial intermediaries, giving users more control over their money.

In the last year alone, over $260 billion worth of assets have been brought into DeFi, an increase of over 460% from the same period last year. (Source:

Course topics include blockchain basics, tokens, NFTs, wallet management and yield generation. It’s accessible online anytime anywhere and is delivered through short, easy-to-understand videos, interactive workshops and quizzes.

Users are part of an online learning community where they can share progress and ask questions directly to the DeFi experts.

New video content is released each week over a 6-week period and is a balance of theory learning and practical work with real-life examples. Users can learn at their own pace as the course is fully flexible to suit everyone’s individual needs.

Head of Commercial, William Meara said: ‘I’ve been involved in the blockchain space for quite some time and over the last year I’ve seen a significant increase in the number of people looking to learn more about DeFi. We’re experiencing unprecedented levels of inflation and our traditional banking system is letting us down, which has resulted in a growing appetite for financial autonomy.

“People want to learn how to leverage their own assets and DeFi has presented the perfect opportunity. Personally, I’ve seen growth that is 50x more than what a bank offers and I want to share that with as many people as I can.”

Head of DeFi, Alex McGonagle said “We are still at the very early days of adoption in this rapidly changing space. New protocols, opportunities and technologies are emerging every day and changing how we will look at finance forever.

“This new frontier of finance could be considered the Wild West of crypto, but our unique approach offers the education and tools that bring safety and financial security.

“We show people what to look out for, what to avoid, and how to set everything up securely. Our goal is to educate users on their potential gain while also mitigating any risks. There is real value in that!”
