What is Edit Crypto?

Edit Crypto is a decentralized wiki designed to allow the community to define crypto projects and terms. It encourages the community to step back from the polarization and tribalism that now runs rampant on social media, and instead allow ideas to flow freely, where before they were ignored if the person wasn’t in the right “camp” or didn’t have the “correct” emoji next to their name.

 

Why Edit Crypto?

On May 15, 2020, JK Rowling tweeted a simple request:

“I don’t understand Bitcoin. Please explain it to me.”

Over the next few days the crypto community offered hundreds of explanations. Twenty, thirty and even forty minute video explanations filled Youtube and lengthy Medium posts were written to explain something that’s been around for over a decade. It made me realize one thing is certain: we desperately need to…Edit Crypto.

 

How do I participate?

In the film industry, there’s something known as the “30-second elevator pitch” for when an artist gets that brief moment to pitch an idea to someone who has the power to help get it made, and they only have a few seconds to convey an entire idea and why it’s important.
Edit Crypto is our space to create 30-Second Elevator Pitches for cryptocurrency projects so even our grandparents would understand.

So have at it. Ask the questions you’ve always been too embarrassed to ask. Or help create the inspiring 30-second answer that makes people everywhere say “Wow, that sounds amazing!”

 

Anything else I need to know?

Each user gets to vote for one answer per question, so make sure you give it some thought. The goal is to get the best answer pushed to the top so it’s the first answer people new to cryptocurrency see. The answer with the most upvotes ends up at the top. Voting on questions pushes the most important questions to the top of the page as well.
