Zero to DeFi designed for people who want to learn about DeFi in an easy-to-understand way. I’ll demystify the jargon so you gain foundational knowledge, master the essential skills and level up your skills and start making crypto work for you.
Why DeFi? What’s the big deal and why is it important to me?
What’s happening in the crypto space right now is what I feel like the birth of the internet must have been like in the 90’s. I’m confident that learning and investing in the space is like investing in early Apple or being next to Bill Gates as he created Microsoft. This space and the movement to web 3.0 will create generational wealth for people unlike anything we’ve seen before.
It’s why I’ve become so heavily invested into it, and want to show others how to do it.
Getting setup and comfortable with DeFi can be time-consuming, intimidating and costly (especially if you don’t know what you’re doing.) 🥵 The crypto world is filled with scams, pump-and-dump shills, and contradictory information.
In the course I will show you everything you need to know about earning passive income from your crypto, understanding the value of projects, purchasing NFTs, and much more!
Each lessons breaks down a key strategy or area of DeFi and runs from 3-10 minutes in length. The videos are predominantly voice-over screen recordings walking through specific tactics and how-tos.
The course is broken down into 3 sections from laying some foundational knowledge, to the essentials and then advanced tactics.
Watching the videos isn’t enough to really “get it”. So each lesson includes specific action items & links so you can jump right in and try it yourself. That’s the quickest way to fully understand it.
Each section also has a pop quiz at the end so I can test that you’re getting what we’re throwing down here.

I’ve held crypto since 2015 but my initiation into DeFi was buying $YFI at under $1,200 in July 2020 (hit ATH of $90k in May 2021). I’ve been hooked ever since.
Since DeFi summer 2020 I’ve been drinking from a fire hose and gone all the way down the rabbit hole. I learned a ton, made a bunch of money — and a many mistakes 😅 (that I want to help you avoid.)
Zero to Defi was a godsend! Before I went through the course, I only had some Bitcoin in Coinbase and no clue how to navigate this Defi world – much less make any money in it.
Cathryn gives you practical advice to actually get started, but also gives you the context to understand how different platforms work, how to evaluate risk, what to look out for, and all this insider knowledge you only get from first-hand experience in such a fast-changing space.
Cathryn is a phenomenal teacher, which is why I trusted her when I decided to go down the DeFi rabbit hole. She does a great job distilling her knowledge into actionable tactics.
Excited to use DeFi tools in the future and would recommend this course to anyone interested in learning about DeFi from an expert.

How long will it take to get through?
What experience with crypto/DeFi do I need to have?
Do I get access to updates of the course?
What if I’m not satisfied with the course?
Which crypto should I buy to 100x?
The million dollar question… that if someone tells you they know for sure they may be trying to pump their bags. No one knows.
I’ll share the projects I’m bullish on and am holding for the long-term but none of what I share is financial advice. Do your own research and find projects you believe in for the long-term, that’s the best way to get great returns.
