10 eLearning Modules

Did you know that since its inception in 2008, Bitcoin has outperformed every other asset class in history?

Despite this powerful fact, many investors resist getting into the cryptocurrency markets. Especially generations older than the Millennials … Gen X and Boomers who stick with traditional, familiar investment options.

This is poised to change as the world around us goes increasingly digital, shifting cryptos into the mainstream, especially as regulation gets sorted out.

Historically, the crypto market has been unpredictable and volatile, and some of the first users were shady criminals on the “dark web.” However, cryptos and blockchain adoption are now moving at a fast clip.

Ordinary investors (regular folks) are paying off their homes and quitting wage-slave jobs thanks to strategic crypto investments and  lucky shots that “went to the moon.” Just this year, the meme coin Shiba Inu came out of nowhere to post an eye-popping gain!

Yes, some people have gotten very rich. While others have lost their cryptos because they forgot the password to their account, didn’t do proper research, or were scammed out of their money. The Crypto space is an airplane that is being built as it’s flying!

At this stage of things, profits can be insane, but so can the risks if you don’t know what you are doing.


After completing this Home Study Kit, you will know:

  1. Key terminology used in the crypto space;
  2. The main digital assets classes and some of the top performers in each sector;
  3. Best practices for safely buying, selling and storing digital currencies; and
  4. Strategies for developing your first portfolio (broker, personal research, investment services etc.), following the market, and reporting your earnings at tax time.

After completing the Home Study Kit, you will be able to:

  1. Set up an account on a reputable cryptocurrency exchange;
  2. Purchase and set up a Ledger Nano S hardware wallet to store your digital assets;
  3. Move digital assets between an exchange/brokerage firm and your hardware wallet; and
  4. Cash-out profits from any successful investments.



This Home Study Kit is comprised of recordings from a Live Online Course led by Christina Merkley and Chanel Monk. You follow along via the video recordings and other course materials.

This Home Study Kit is for people with little or no experience with cryptocurrencies or investing. It’s also for beginner to intermediate investors who want to fill in missing gaps. It starts with basic principles and builds from there. It is designed for beginners who have an open mind, a can-do attitude, and the willingness to learn about these new technologies. You don’t need to be a techie, but you should have good basic computer skills and be able to comfortably navigate the internet, download apps, and use two-factor authentication.

While most of Shift Into Cryptos involves explaining the fundamentals of blockchain and teaching you how to safely buy, sell and store cryptos, it is delivered with a special nod to the needs of creative and/or spiritually oriented individuals many of whom have struggled with, or have not been particularly interested in, financial matters.

spiritual creative person meditatingYou may not think spirit would answer your call for abundance through something as crass as cryptocurrency but consider this: Celebrity psychic and cryptocurrency advocate Michelle Whitedove writes, “I predicted years ago that the good cryptos would do well. They are a gift from spirit. A chance for good people to do well and make money they would never have been able to otherwise.”

Whether or not you agree with Whitedove, one thing is certain: The window for big gains is closing. Fortunately, you still have time to get on board before the fast-approaching tsunami of mass retail and institutional adoption sweeps this opportunity away. Of course, no one knows for sure how it will play out, but wouldn’t it be great to have the basic knowledge and skills needed to take advantage of this unique opportunity, if it’s right for you?
