About Caps Block
Hello and welcome to CapsBlock, the largest free Blockchain resource site dedicated to beginners.
At CapsBlock, our main goal is to provide latest helpful Blockchain and Crypto related resources, quality information and tutorials that are easy to understand for all those who are starting out in this field.
My name is Liviu Craciun, and I’m the founder of CapsBlock.
I am a blockchain developer, entrepreneur and all things blockchain enthusiast. Back in early 2018 I started working on blockchain related jobs on the Fiverr platform, first as a hobby and then this hobby eventually turned into a steady job helping many clients for various blockchain and cryptocurrency related projects, answering thousands of blockchain related questions.
Working as a blockchain freelence developer, marketer and consultant I still receive a fair amount of questions on a regular basis, from basic to more advanced and my intention is to always guide people in the right direction. That’s why I launched CapsBlock in 2019 as a resource targeted for blockchain beginners, and not only.
Therefore, if you are new to the Blockchain and Cryptocurrency world, then I highly recommend that you first check out my following Blockchain Glossary:

Is it worth investing time in learning blockchain?
Let me start with some fun facts for those of you who you haven’t known this yet: the first Bitcoin block was mined in January 2009 and the first Bircoin transaction was an order of two Papa John’s Pizzas in the amount of 10,000 Bitcoins, in May 2010. Today the same transaction would be worth 80 million dollars.
The crypto space has come a long way in the last nine years, but for those of you who think you’ve already ‘missed this train’ let me assure you that blockchain is still considered a new thing and most of its technology is still in an incipient phase. It has a lot of room to grow and it actually does grow. Let me come up with some statistics from very trusted sources to prove my point of view.
• there are 40 million Blockchain Wallet Users Worldwide and the number keeps growing
The number of blockchain wallet users worldwide has jumped from less than 6.7 million in Q1 2016 to almost 40 million in Q2 2019. This has involved a constant increase, with every quarter seeing more cryptocurrency wallets than the previous one. Of course, the higher the number of wallets, the more people are interested in cryptocurrency.
• global demand for blockchain engineers has a 517% increase year over year
The global demand for blockchain engineers is up by 517 percent year-over-year, according to a 2019 report released by recruitment company Hired.
Another study published by recruiting site Glassdoor in the same month found that crypto and blockchain-related job opportunities significantly increased in the United States in 2018, despite the slump in cryptocurrency prices.
• there are now almost 6,000 crypto ATMs across 76 countries
The world’s first Bitcoin ATM was opened in Vancouver, Canada, at the end of 2013. Since that day, the total number of cryptocurrency ATMs worldwide has continued to increase.
Currently, almost 6,000 Bitcoin ATMs are available in the world, and their number increased from 501 ATMs in 2016 to almost 6000 in 2019, which also indicates that the number of ATMs has doubled almost every year over the past 4 years. See here the chart’s source website.
Observing all these statistics, it is obviously to me where blockchain is heading. It is heading to main stream adoption and main stream adoption will happen sooner than we think.
And for that reason you guys need to be prepared so I hope you to start using this website’s resources now!
