Cryptocurrency has emerged as a disruptive force in the global financial landscape, challenging traditional systems and offering new possibilities for economic transactions. As this innovative technology gains traction, its reputation and public perception have become crucial factors for its widespread adoption and long-term success. However, the reputation of cryptocurrency and cryptocurrency organizations have been in crisis as multiple and widescale frauds and crashes have threatened the growth of the industry.

This project seeks to answer this issue by applying crisis communications and public relations frameworks to create a plain language guide to inform the consumer base and restore investor confidence in cryptocurrency.
