Block Climbing Podcast: How to make a cryptocurrency


This week Tim and Tegan look at how you actually make a cryptocurrency and how different it is to making a crypto token.

One of the biggest questions people ask about cryptocurrency is how to actually make one. So this week Tegan and Tim delve into the logistics, including the very big difference between making a cryptocurrency and a token. Spoiler alert, they're absolutely not the same thing.

On the news front, the official YouTube account of the South Korean government was hacked recently. Not only that, it was rebranded as SpaceX Invest and filled with fake videos of "Elon Musk" talking about crypto. Meanwhile, crypto scam watchdog Rug Pull Finder (no affiliation to us!) kinda got crypto scammed. Whoops.
