Trusted Professionals in Trustless Technology

The CryptoCurrency Certification Consortium (C4) establishes cryptocurrency standards that help ensure a balance of openness & privacy, security & usability, and trust & decentralization.
Which certification is right for you?

Why C4?

The cryptocurrency space is exploding with new startups. These companies and those already established in the space are constantly seeking talent with a strong understanding of cryptocurrencies. Prior to C4 there was no way for these hiring managers and placement firms to validate Bitcoin knowledge in their candidates like they can with other knowledge such as networking, security, and accounting. C4 provides certifications so that professionals can assert their knowledge in cryptocurrencies the same way they are able to assert other skills.

The CryptoCurrency Certification Consortium is a non-profit organization that provides certifications to professionals who perform cryptocurrency-related services. Recipients of each respective certificate will have demonstrated comprehensive knowledge in various disciplines ranging from basic cryptography to low-level cryptocurrency development.

Our Code of Ethics

All cryptocurrency professionals who are certified by C4 recognize that such certification is a privilege that must be both earned and maintained. C4 certified professionals who intentionally or knowingly violate any provision of the C4 code of ethics may be subject to disciplinary action which could include revocation of certification. A complaint process exists whereby suspected breaches of the C4 code of ethics by any C4-certified professional can be submitted anonymously online.

There are only three mandatory canons in the Code. By necessity, such high-level guidance is not intended to be a substitute for the ethical judgment of the professional.

Code of Ethics Canons

Wherever appropriate, apply decentralization to your clients’ problems.
Protect your clients, your neighbourhood, and the global neighbourhood in which we all thrive.
Be honest with yourself and with your clients.

Our Team

C4 is run by volunteers who are passionate about blockchains and cryptocurrencies. Our staff strive to push C4’s mission of standards and education forward to create the foundation upon which the future global economy will be built.

Our Certifications and Standards

C4’s certifications establish a baseline for real-world, practical knowledge in a particular area. Just like a driver’s license proves you understand how to operate a motor vehicle safely, our certifications and standards give you the confidence you need to use cryptocurrencies safely.
