Top 10 Websites to Learn More About Cryptocurrency and Blockchains

Cryptocurrency is the latest buzzword in tech, business, and finance. It’s easy to see why. People are making millions on these digital currencies. The underlying blockchain technology is being bought up by major corporate players too.

Of course, it’s not easy to become a millionaire, even if you understand cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. It takes careful research and analysis on the topic before investing.

To make things easier, we’ve gathered the top 10 websites for keeping up with all things cryptocurrency and blockchain.

10. Engadget

Engadget is known as a tech website, and since cryptocurrency is a technology, it has news on that too. This is a great resource to gain an understanding of how crypto and blockchain are fitting into the bigger picture of technology.

9. Bloomberg

Bloomberg is a premiere business website, and it’s focused on blockchain technology too. If you want to understand how the crypto markets compare to others, it’s a great resource. You can also find news on how businesses in other industries are utilizing crypto tokens and blockchain in their businesses.

8. Blockchain News

Blockchain news if focused entirely on…well…blockchain news. Whereas most sites focus on the cryptocurrency token prices, this one is more interested in the underlying blockchain tech powering it. You’ll find cryptocurrency news too, but it’s the best resource for pure blockchain happenings.

7. Reddit

The media tends to get a lot wrong because of fast-paced work environments focused on deadlines. On Reddit’s Bitcoin subreddit, you’ll find discussion from real people using real Bitcoin and other cryptos. Learn from their experience, and you can avoid the same mistakes (or replicate the same successes). At a bare minimum, you’ll find some dank memes and get distracted into other subreddits.

6. BitcoinTalk

BitcoinTalk hosts the Bitcoin Forum, which, like Reddit, is a great place to learn from other users. It’s a crowded forum with a lot of activity covering every aspect of Bitcoin. This is a must-read for anyone from noobs to vets.

5. Crypto Briefing

Crypto Briefing is an upstart cryptocurrency site covering all the IPOs, ICOs, and blockchain companies. I contribute to the site myself, so you’ll find news briefings from what I’m looking at. There’s also a team of writers interested in cryptocurrency. We’ll provide the news from an unbiased standpoint, since none of the writers are allowed to write about businesses they have investments in.

4. CryptoCoin News

CryptoCoin News is another great resource for all the latest happenings in the crypto industry. There are over 1500 cryptocurrencies on the market today, and keeping up with them all is a daunting task. This site tracks prices and does its best to bring all the breaking news as it happens.

3. CoinTelegraph

CoinTelegraph follows all the important updates in blockchains and the major cryptocurrencies. From industry trade shows to businesses using crypto in unique ways, you’ll find information here that’ll help you invest in the right cryptocurrencies at the right times.

2. Investopedia

Investopedia is one of the best investment websites on the Internet. It doesn’t just keep you updated and informed on everything crypto – it’ll explain everything you need to know about investing in general. No matter what you want to invest in, this is the place to bone up on your knowledge.

1. CoinDesk

CoinDesk is the oldest and biggest player in the cryptocurrency news space. It’s on my checklist of websites to visit daily. That’s because it has the best crypto news team gathering information faster than anybody else. If you want to be the first to know about what’s happening in cryptocurrency and blockchain right now, this is the site to check.
