A major financial company needs your help to explain cryptocurrencies, like Bitcoin and Ethereum, to high school students. Cryptocurrencies are digital money that use special codes for security. They're becoming very popular, but they can be a bit tricky to understand, especially when it comes to investing.

Your Task:

  1. Quickly look up what cryptocurrencies are and how they work. Focus on their main features, why they're popular, and what risks they might have.

  2. Put together a clear explanation for teens. Include:

    1. Definition: Describe cryptocurrencies in simple terms.

    2. Investment Advice: Point out one or two important things to think about before deciding to invest.

  3. Write a script that someone could use to explain cryptocurrencies in a short clip.

Bonus: Create a video or poster in a design tool of your choice and share the link. IMPORTANT! Links must be set to: Viewed by anyone on the internet. Test your link using incognito / private mode. Watch our tutorial on Creating and Checking Sharable Links.
