Does This Sound Familiar?
You tell your non-crypto holding friend or family member about Centric.
You see that twinkle in their eye.
They want to invest.
Then it comes–the dreaded question.
“Can I just ask you a few questions?”
Two hours later, you find yourself deep in the weeds, explaining the ins and outs of wallets, exchanges, private keys, sending/receiving tokens, converting, and so on.
Your friend isn’t stupid. Not at all. They are probably well-informed about lots of topics.
Unfortunately for you, crypto isn’t one of them.
It feels like explaining Einstein’s theory of relativity to a three-year-old.
“And that, boys and girls, is how you get CNS and convert it to CNR. Any questions?”
If you’ve ever thrown up your arms in exhaustion and shouted to the heavens:
“There has to be a better way!” 😩
…then this post is for you.
Because indeed, there is a better way!
Introducing the Centric Education Series
Centric began offering weekly educational webinars in May 2021.
Each Wednesday, at 1 PM Eastern (5 PM UTC), Centric CEO Joel Clelland welcomes anyone interested in learning more about the basics of Centric. He provides an overview and basic demo for newcomers covering:
- Creating a Centric Wallet
- Logging in to the Centric Wallet
- Purchasing CNS on an exchange
- Sending CNS to the Centric Wallet
- How & Why to convert CNS to CNR
The webinar lasts 30-40 minutes, with the last few minutes dedicated to addressing attendee questions.
The weekly webinars offer the perfect opportunity to invite your friends and family, whether merely Centricurious or full-on ready-to-invest.

Attending the Webinar
Once you’ve registered, you’ll receive an email with the subject 📅 You’ve just registered for Centric’s event, sent from [email protected] The email will contain your unique link to join (cannot be shared).
We strongly recommend watching the webinar on a laptop or desktop computer, rather than on a phone or tablet, as a larger screen will allow for better visibility of the screenshare.
Who Should Not Attend?
The purpose of the webinar is purely educational and intended for newcomers to Centric. While all are welcome, if you’re looking for something other than a basic overview and product demo, you’ll want to look elsewhere.
As Joel recently explained to an experienced Centric investor via Twitter:
Looking for the latest news and updates? You’ll want to monitor our official Telegram channel.
Got a question about Centric’s tokenomics? We invite you to read the Basics page and Whitepaper. Then if you still have further questions, drop them in our Telegram chat.
Finally, if you have a technical or other support need, your best bet is to hit up our friendly customer support team.
We can only cover so much in a half hour webinar. Your ready-to-invest-but-new-to-crypto friends might still hit you up with questions. But after they’ve watched Joel’s step-by-step walkthrough, you’ll likely find them more equipped to follow your guidance.
Should your friend have questions about creating a Centric wallet, setting up 2FA, or converting from CNS to CNR, refer them to our Getting Started Guide (have them scroll down to the “Useful guides” section).
The Centric community has grown organically, through word-of-mouth and one-to-one outreach of investors to their friends, family, and colleagues.
To those who have helped spread the word, and helped their crypto-newbie friends invest, please know: we appreciate you!
We hope the Centric Education Series will make sharing Centric easier.
