Bitcoin was invented in 2008 and over the first five years from 2008 to 2013 thousands of people mined crypto and
that’s how they got over the next five years from 2013 to 2018 millions more
people got their first crypto by buying it we think is that from 2018 to
2023 and beyond many many more people are going to get the crypto not by
mining it or by buying it by earning it we think that earning and learning go
hand in hand because we think the best way to learn about something is to
actually use it and engage with it and that’s what earn-style tasks are all
about. So how does Coinbase Earn work we’ve partnered with a issuers to create
