About Code Cash

Code Cash is an educational platform for learning about digital financial literacy in South Africa and the United Kingdom. I work for a UK-based company but spend most of my time in Cape Town, South Africa.

Meet the Person Behind Code Cash

Hey there, I’m Niall, the creator of Code Cash, and I’m genuinely thrilled you’ve stopped by. I’m a tech nerd who’s spent years crafting educational tools that ignite curiosity and make learning a blast. I’ve collaborated with some of the brightest minds in education, but here’s the thing—education shouldn’t stop at the classroom door. That’s why Code Cash exists.

I’m not a Wall Street guru; you won’t find me sporting a tailored suit. You will find someone captivated by how technology is reshaping the way we think about money. And that’s what Code Cash is all about—making sense of this wild intersection between our digital lives and finances.

What You’ll Get Out of Code Cash

Here are the big topics we dive into:

  1. Digital Safety/Cybersecurity: We’re all online, right? But keeping your hard-earned money safe in this digital age isn’t as straightforward as locking a door. I’ll break down the cyber jargon and offer useful advice to secure your assets.
  2. Crypto Assets: I’ve spent countless hours down the cryptocurrency rabbit hole. While it’s exhilarating, it’s also like the Wild West. I’ll share what I’ve learned so you can make sense of things like blockchain, Bitcoin, and NFTs without getting overwhelmed.
  3. General Financial Planning: Budgeting and saving might sound old-school, but they’re the backbone of any sound financial plan. I’ll show you how to blend traditional wisdom with modern tools to get the most out of your money.
  4. Technology in Finance: How does tech change how we bank or invest? I’m talking about mobile banking apps, digital wallets, and robo-advisors. Let’s explore these together, and I’ll offer my take on what’s worth your time and what’s just hype.

Why You Might Want to Listen

Look, there’s no shortage of financial advice out there, but much of it feels disconnected from our world—a world that’s increasingly digital. For instance, did you know that according to a Deloitte report, 64% of us have used some sort of fintech app to manage our money? Or that cybercrime is expected to cost us a whopping $6 trillion annually by 2021, according to Cybersecurity Ventures? These aren’t just stats; they’re signs of the times.

I may not have a finance degree, but I’ve got years of experience in making complex topics approachable and even, dare I say, fun. I’m here to guide you through this ever-changing landscape, offering a unique blend of tech-savviness and a passion for clear, straightforward education.
