Following on from my previous question and answer article for Celo on Coinbase Earn tutorials, I thought I would follow this up with a few more currencies. The process follows a simple path. Watch a video, answer a question, get your reward.

Compound lets anyone borrow or earn interest on their crypto.

Compound is a protocol running on Ethereum that lets individuals, developers, and applications earn interest on their crypto without relying on third parties.

Question: "What's a key benefit of using Compound?"

Interests in crypto are sparked from my curiosity to learn all things new. As a web developer, I love new concepts, toys, methods, and tools. The RPi is a great example of learning things for the sake of it, but practical use. That is my admiration.
