Richard Carthon


Richard began Crypto Current to educate others to make informed cryptocurrency investments, but today aims to spotlight all opportunities across cryptocurrency and the blockchain industry.

Have you or someone you know been burnt by crypto before? Maybe you are a part of the group of people who invested in cryptocurrency late in 2017/early 2018 while the cryptocurrency prices were quickly rising, then saw the prices quickly fall for most of 2018. Or maybe you invested in one of the various ICOs, mining or other scams that were going on during late 2017/early 2018.

Let’s address the elephant in the room: cryptocurrency and blockchain technology is new and unfamiliar to most. Several people invested in cryptocurrency without knowing much about the technology that is supporting the various crypto projects that are going on in the space.

Knowing this, Richard began to research and create content, Crypto Current, to educate himself and inform others so that they could be  more educated on cryptocurrency and blockchain.

If you are curious in the space, Richard welcomes you to connect.

Blockchain Wayne

Educational Content Partner

Blockchain Wayne has been managing, teaching, and coaching high performing teams for over 20 years. Several years ago his passion for helping and teaching people was merged with his passion for technology as he learned more about cryptocurrency and blockchain projects. Digging deep and learning about the issues with the current legacy financial systems solidified his passion for cryptocurrency and all things related to it. Also, with many predators taking advantage of people with fake cryptocurrency scams and high cost-low value education programs, he decided to make my sole focus around educating and coaching others. He realized the road to mass adoption must travel through education and user friendly platforms. He also realized over many years of coaching others that education without proper mindset and personal development coaching doesn’t lead to desired results. Through our strategic partners and personalized 1-on-1 coaching and education program, he will give you the right tools and mindset needed to make the right decisions in this space.
