Uphold offers users a few unique tools they can use to educate themselves before investing in their asset of choice. A few of our favorite educational resources include:

If you’ve ever been confused about the unique language cryptocurrency traders use to describe their trades, you’ll love Uphold’s “Cryptonary”. As the name suggests, Cryptonary is your dictionary for all the cryptocurrency terms you could run into during your research. From specific coin offerings to slang terms like “FUD”, Cryptonary offers a vast range of quick, accessible definitions. Many terms can also enhance your understanding of stock trading as well.
