Grounded in neuroscience and proven modern learning methodologies, Chalq is creating a blockchain education web platform through its bite-sized, digestible microlearning course videos along with its real-time cryptocurrency simulator. In so doing, Chalq is on a mission to "de-confuse" the blockchain space by taking an education-first and invest-second approach to blockchain education.

"We want to bring blockchain education to the masses by taking an interactive and innovative learning approach through Microlearning," says Gabe Hill. "Our mission at Chalq is to democratize blockchain education on a global scale. The Blockchain space is an incredibly fast moving and confusing space to understand and navigate, so it's crucial to have an education platform available with which users can educate themselves on blockchain technology and practice crypto investing techniques, all on one platform."

Chalq was accepted into Silicon Valley's most prestigious pre-seed accelerator program, The Founder Institute, which has a 14% global acceptance rate, in August. With a quickly expanding team of 7 and a seasoned advisory team including Elizabeth (Beth) Smith serving as Board Chairwoman and EdTech Executives Matt Knapp and Douglas Solomon serving as Senior Advisors, Chalq is poised for success.
