What Students Are Saying

I met a tremendous amount of likeminded people that have now become my friends, both coaches and classmates. They helped me refine my bitcoin knowledge and pointed me in the right direction.

— Allen Helm

ACCOUNT MANAGER, BTC INC

In the nascent industry, there are few to slim certifications, majors, or career experience that can set you apart in the job market, especially for someone like myself who is not a techie, developer, or engineer.

— Alexis Tabak

COMPLIANCE ASSOCIATE, GEMINI

The members of my cohort have been very supportive of each other as we learn more, share opinions, and find professional success. I am looking forward to getting started at Square and working on a product in Cash App that provides an opportunity for many people to start stacking sats!

— Dustin Adams

PRODUCT COUNSEL, CASH APP

As a Global Operations Analyst at BlockFi, I am involved in all aspects of the business.  The course not only helped me further my belief in the impact of DeFi and Bitcoin, but it provided me with a layer of confidence when price volatility strikes and FUD increases.

— Mauricio Mondragon

GLOBAL OPERATIONS ANALYST, BLOCKFI

The course provided me a platform to interact with like minded individuals who were as intellectually curious as am I about crypto. Most importantly, the course helped me gain access to connections in the cryptoeconomy, which ultimately led to me receiving and accepting an offer at Coinbase.

— Matt Alviti

CUSTODIAL ANALYST, COINBASE

This class was the perfect fit to help me make this totally new transition from business into crypto. Pomp and his team of coaches genuinely care about helping you succeed. Beyond learning, I made a positive career advancement into the Bitcoin industry, and I have this class and PompCryptoJobs to thank for that.
