Blockchain Rookies > About Us

We are Blockchain Rookies

Blockchain Rookies was founded by Troy and Caroline. Old colleagues and friends for years, they’ve spent the majority of their careers in Digital Marketing. Having been recently thrown into the cryptocurrency space, they quickly became aware that explanations of the technology were often convoluted and incomprehensible.

To make the technology accessible to all, they created Blockchain Rookies.
