Besides being the educational hub for all things Web3 and bringing the top KOLs and projects onto our platform, Apollo Academy also creates in-house educational content. Known as Salad Originals, our very own Co-Founder and CGO, Wesley Mathews plans and produces introductory courses; ideal for crypto normies.
In the past month, we’ve been focusing on creating an introduction to DeFi course for our Apollonauts. This course gives students an in-depth overview of the DeFi world. Split into six video modules, students can chart their journeys from learning what is Web3.0 to exploring yield farming, covered calls and more.
Learn How to Enter Open and Free Financial Markets
Similar to other courses we’ve released thus far, this DeFi course offers a step-by-step guide to everything you need to know to enter the DeFi space. Embark on this mission to learn about:
What is Web3.0?
In this digital age of decentralisation, find out how cryptocurrency is bringing about a new internet revolution. An umbrella term that encapsulates what this phenomenon is about, watch this video to hear Captain Aqua explain what exactly is Web3.0.
Basic Introduction to Metamask
Get ready for the DeFi world by learning how to create a Metamask wallet. Captain Aqua defines what is Metamask, go through the steps you can take to create your own wallet and how you can add other blockchains and tokens. He even shares his insights into different types of blockchain explorers you can choose from.
How to use a Decentralised Exchange: Pancake Swap
After creating your wallet, the natural next step is learning how to use decentralised exchanges. Captain Aqua uses Pancake Swap as an example to show Apollonauts how to trade tokens and find contract addresses.
Introduction to Liquidity Pools
Captain Aqua demonstrates how Apollonauts can be a part of the DeFi ecosystem by providing liquidity in liquidity pools. Learn how to deposit idle tokens to earn a portion of trading fees.
Introduction to Yield Farming
As a way for Apollonauts to make idle tokens work for them, yield farming allows users to stake tokens in liquidity pools in exchange for cryptocurrency. Captain Aqua talks about boosted pools and how Apollonauts can get started. Be sure to do your own research!
What is a Covered Call?
Consider using a covered call strategy to earn more tokens even during the bear market. Captain Aqua expands on Friktion Lab’s DeFi solutions and how Apollonauts can implement this strategy. It’s key to conduct your own research before making any financial decisions.
