ETHNews is seeking submissions for the best "Ethereum Explainers!"
If you have an infographic, explainer video, tutorial, guide, or any other creative media content, send it to ETHNews. Ideally, content should appeal to non-technical users to help educate the uninitiated about the wonderful world of Ethereum.
Below, you’ll find a list of topics we’d like covered, but we’re open to other topics as well, like the ones your friends ask you to explain! Use the form to submit your content and we’ll be in touch if it’s something ETHNews can use on the site. We will even send you a little Ether if we use your submission!
- What is Blockchain?
- What is Ethereum?
- How is Ethereum different from Bitcoin?
- Why is Ethereum important?
