ABOUT ROGER HUMBKE

Welcome to all beginners of all ages, who wish to learn about the BLOCKCHAIN and CRYPTOCURRENCIES, and those who want to assist in that process. I arrived on earth during the 2nd Industrial Revolution (mass production, electricity and the assembly line ); survived the 3rd Industrial Revolution (automation, computers, electronics and the internet) and now find myself at the beginning of the 4th Industrial Revolution (artificial intelligence, robotics, big data and the blockchain).

As a professional educator, I realize that teachers/coaches learn the most when they create a learning environment in which the student/learner experiences the joy of learning. For that reason and the joy of taking part in the learning process, I am starting this site to not only provide a place for newbies to thrive, but also for those of us who have some knowledge and skill but want much more.

I am also an Affiliate Marketer, so please be aware that this website does connect to other websites for which I will be writing personal reviews as a result of my experience. If you make a purchase on one of these websites I may receive a payment as an Affiliate Marketer.

 

My journey of discovery began in 2016 as an extreme pessimist, who treated the Bitcoin with disdain and skepticism. After reading the authors of numerous blogs/books on the topic and attending Meet-Ups of passionate supporters, my curiosity crystallized when I realized the power of the BLOCKCHAIN.

In the fall of 2017 I took the first course of nine that leads to a M.Sc. in Digital Currency from the University of Nicosia. That course and professor Andreas Antonopoulos opened my eyes to the potential of the BLOCKCHAIN to start a technological revolution equal to the start of the Internet. My first two blogs on this site will describe my journey in more detail and the results I will achieve through creating this site.

  1. This is all so enticing. Thank you so much for getting in touch. Yes this is definitely a 4th revolution.

    1. Hi Laurence,
      Thanks for commenting. It was a great start for the “Introduction to Digital Currencies” the U of Nicosia. I especially enjoyed the 1 hr live Q & A session with Antonis Polemitis on Friday morning Edmonton time. This time around I am following more of the discussions and I have run across a number of others who are taking the course for the 2nd, 3rd and 4th time. I guess the field is expanding, changing quickly and Blockchain is becoming more important.
      Regards,
      Roger

  2. Hi Roger:
    Great start to a very worthwhile project – we should never stop learning. In this world the only constant we have is change, and with change comes opportunity – the child of education. I’ll be following your progress and learning about the very revolutionary topic of Blockchain technology. Much success. Ted

    1. Hi Ted,
      Appreciate your support. There is so much learning to be done and not enough hours in the day to do it all. I am trying to balance between learning the skills to keep a website up-to-date and functional; doing extensive research on the topic I write about; family obligations; physical activity; and a life.

      Learning has always been a priority and I enjoy the journey, so can’t complain. All the best to your with your project.
      Regards,
      Roger

  3. Hello Roger

    1. Hi Rania,
      Your words are very kind and motivating.

      Yes we have two things in common, but I like to see teachers as FACILITATOS who create learning environments in which LEARNERS learn. That includes an environment which is engaging, motivational and reaches specific results for both the FACILITATOR & LEARNER.

      Regards,
      Roger
