Homework Guidelines

We are keen to ensure that all contributions to the Steemit Crypto Academy are of as high a standard as possible.

While the Crypto Professors may set specific requirements for some of their homework tasks we would suggest all students follow these basic guidelines…

  • Title the post with the format - Crypto Academy Week 3 Homework Post for [name of Crypto Professor] …
  • Homework posts should be at least 300 words
  • All work should be your own - plagiarism will not be tolerated
  • Any graphs, screenshots, quotes etc used from other sources should be fully referenced
  • Any images used should be from copyright-free sources and fully referenced
  • Homework posts should include the tag #cryptoacademy and any tag specifically required by the Crypto Professor in the first five tags. It will also be good to include a tag for your country.
  • Tag the relevant Crypto Professor to help them find your homework post.

Please make sure you send your homework posts into the Crypto-Academy community…

Following all these guidelines carefully will help you gain higher vote rewards for your homework posts.



The Steemit Crypto Academy community

We want to make the Crypto Academy community ONLY for posts to do with the courses being run by the Crypto Professors…

Alongside the course posts from the Crypto Professors, the only other posts in the Steemit Crypto Academy community should be homework posts for the tasks set by the professors.

Please do not post general crypto related posts now in the Steemit Crypto Academy.

We are currently considering setting up a separate community for general crypto content.



We hope as many of you as possible will join in with the Steemit Crypto Academy courses and do the homework tasks set by the Crypto Professors. You are free to follow as many of the courses as you want.

We will be giving votes from @steemcurator01 or @steemcurator02 for good homework posts - so make sure you do as many as you can as well as you can !


You can also help grow the Steemit Crypto Academy by telling your friends about it and sharing the courses on your social media.

And if you know any crypto content creators do encourage them to come along and get involved. We will be on the lookout for more Crypto Professors soon.

Thank you

The Steemit Team
