What are some resources someone new to this asset class and crytocurrencies can use to understand the language and terminology used in describing it? Like any area of interest, understanding the terminology is both the barrier and the key to being involved in it. Thank you.

TokenMarket provides a knowledge base covering the basic smart contract and digital asset terminology.

Furthermore if you are new to the topic and you want to learn it, it makes sense to take an online course, like ones offered by Coursera and Udemy.
