Simple X Workshop: Crypto 101

Join us for an overview of how cryptocurrencies work, how they play into our current financial system, and how they can be used as a tool for personal growth and wealth building. We will answer your questions about “networks” and “blockchain” and explain why we think crypto is the future. 

Simple X Workshop: Crypto 101


The event will take place virtually via Vimeo on Thursday, September 16th at 6 PM PDT. 

Speakers: Trey Edwards & Darin Carter

Trey Edwards is a Manager at Coinbase and has been passionate about blockchain & digital currency for the past four years. He began his journey by working in the traditional financial industry where he learned first-hand how antiquated our current financial system is. After becoming one of the youngest people in the world to obtain his Master’s in Blockchain & Digital Currency, he began working for Coinbase and now leads their Retail Customer Advocacy team. 

When he’s not working, he’s passionate about educating the Black community about this technology and making sure that we’re not only aware of it but are also helping to build the future of the industry. He lives in North Carolina with his beautiful wife and puppy, and outside of blockchain, Trey loves soccer, skydiving and all things Sci-Fi.

Darin Carter is a keynote speaker, a crypto ambassador, and an information security professional who values dedication, service, and excellence. After launching his career in innovation with Ernst & Young, and a couple years building at Salesforce, Darin Carter joined Coinbase’s Security Compliance team and has been working in crypto for 2 years. 

As a lifelong learner, Darin has studied at Pennsylvania State University, the University of Cape Town (where he briefly hosted a radio show), and is currently a Master’s candidate at the University of Nicosia, studying Blockchain & Digital Currency. When he’s not learning or working in crypto, Darin loves to watch basketball and travel the world. He is currently living the nomad life, dialing in from San Francisco, New York, Miami, and everywhere in between.
