While Cryptovest provides educational material for those getting started in the world of cryptocurrencies, it’s real strength lies in its market analysis and ICO reviews. It’s geared towards the investor class, and has gathered a team of cryptocurrency investment experts to ensure only sound ideas and recommendations are made for trading the safest coins with the greatest profit potential. If you have any plans to trade or invest in crypto, put this on your daily reading list.

Coin.FYI, @CoinFyi

(Category: Trading / Investing)
Coin.FYI is an Anonymous and easy-to-use crypto portfolio tracker with a related news feed. That’s nothing ground breaking in and of itself, but I really appreciate the streamlined look of the site. Information is presented clearly and in a very ordered fashion, making it easy to take in at a glance, rather than being a jumbled mess like some sites. In addition to the portfolio feature you can also create watchlists to track your favorite coin(s) and any related news. And there a Coinmarketcap like feature that shows all coins and their current values.

CoinFi, @coin_fi

(Category: Investing / Trading)
CoinFi offers crowdsourced and professionally curated research, analysis, trading signals, trading algorithms, and market-moving news to give cryptocurrency traders the real-time market intelligence needed to gain an edge. There are two parts to CoinFi. The first is the Cryptocurrency Financial Media component which gives users crypto research, analysis, and market moving news, overlaid on top of real-time price charts. The other is the Trading Technology platform, which brings Wall Street caliber tools to the crypto market, and makes them available to the everyday crypto investor.

Tradingview, @tradingview

(Category: Investing / Trading)
If you’re trading cryptocurrencies, you need Tradingview. They have quite simply the best cryptocurrency charts and charting tools available. By far and hands down. Just as important, the Tradingview community of traders are knowledgeable, experience, and passionate about trading and sharing trading ideas. There’s just so much to be seen and learned over at Tradingview, you have to check it out for yourself.

Vectorspace

(Category: Investing / Trading)
The Vectorspace AI platform enables dynamically generated intelligent “token baskets” based on user-selected trends that exist in search, social media and news. Proprietary algorithms are based on machine learning and advanced Natural Language Processing (NLP) methods. This has led to the Smart Token Basket: Top Cryptocurrencies trending in reddit, bitcointalk, news, blogs & social media.

Crypto Income, @livingoncryptos

(Category: Investing / Trading)

I’ve put Crypto Income under the Investing / Trading category, even though it isn’t pure investing and trading related. That is the main thrust of the site, although it also contains helpful guides for those just getting started in cryptocurrencies. Otherwise it does a very good job covering smaller coins, and new issues that haven’t been discovered yet. It’s also interesting to note that the site owner has been living entirely off of cryptocurrencies since the start of 2018.

Crypto Daytrader

(Category: Investing / Trading)

As you might have guessed from the name of the site, Crypto Daytrader is about locating and profiting from short term moves in various altcoins. The site doesn’t post every day, in fact it might only release 1-2 articles a month, but those are very well written and detailed, giving a prospective trader all the information needed to make a decision about the viability of the coin or token being discussed. I wouldn’t trade just on the recommendations without doing due diligence, but it’s a great place to get some new ideas about potentially profitable trades.

Coin Market Game

(Category: Investing / Trading)

The Coin Market Game site is a cryptocurrency exchange simulation, where you can start with $20,000 in fictional currency and try to trade your way to the top of the leaderboard. If you’ve ever played with stock or forex simulations you know that this is a fun and entertaining way to learn about trading. It is a very basic interface, and there are no charts or charting tools, but it is a good way to get familiar with cryptocurrency trading so you can later transition to a real exchange using real money. You are also limited to roughly 2 dozen cryptocurrencies in the “exchange”, some of which are quite obscure. Join and have fun!

ICO Specific

Token Data, @TokenData

(Category: ICOs)

ICOs have been a huge topic in the crypto space, but ICO related blogs and sites are in the minority when compared with sites focused on general cryptocurrencies. The Token Data site is a one stop for unbiased data and analytics regarding upcoming and completed ICOs. If you’re thinking of jumping into the ICO insanity head over here to get all the data available on the project of your choice.

ICO Whitelists, @ICOWhitelists

(Category: ICO Specific)

ICO Whitelists addresses a specific problem that many retail ICO investors face – difficulty finding ICOs before the whitelist has closed. It’s run by a Data Scientist as a side project from his day job, but for all that is very complete and provides detailed information. The site aims to be the #1 site for locating ICO projects with whitelists, and it is doing very well in that regard. There are also tools to see which ICOs are the hottest and trending right now, as well as educational material that teaches what to look for in a great ICO.

Smith + Crown, @smithandcrown

(Category: ICO Specific)

Smith + Crown is an independent blockchain ratings agency, focused on the ICO market. They do not accept advertising, and all their reports can be considered unbiased and factual, which is so refreshing in the current atmosphere of shilling new coins regardless of their actual value or the value of the project. Almost all of the research they do is posted for free on their website, although you will find a charge for some of the more detailed reports, or for those of very high profile ICOs.

ICO Tracker, @icotracker_net

(Category: ICO Specific)

While the website itself calls ICO Tracker a prototype project, it is highly respected within the cryptocurrency community. Founded initially on a whim, it has rapidly grown thanks to the solid reviews and ratings that have been given, and the very complete coverage of the world of ICOs. If you need information about an ICO, the ICO Tracker site is a great first stop off in your research.

ICO Bench, @ICObench

(Category: ICO Specific)

ICObench is a free ICO rating platform and a blockchain community supported by a wide range of experts that provides analytical, legal, and technical insights to the investors. The reviews and rating generated by ICO Bench are meant for informational purposes only, but can be a great way to learn about new and upcoming ICOs. In addition to being rated, so you can focus on the most highly rated ICOs, they are also broken down by category, making it easy to focus on health care or energy or any one of several dozen categories. It’s an excellent site for those who want to get involved with ICOs.

CoinTLDR, @CoinTLDR

(Category: ICO Specific)

Are you familiar with the acronym TL;DR? It means “Too long; didn’t read”, and that’s how I feel sometimes when researching a new coin, or especially an ICO. Wading through the whitepaper, forum posts, Slack channels and every other source of information I can find seems just like that, TLDR. Now you can simply head to CoinTLDR and get the short and sweet version. Short ICO reports. What a timesaver.

Blockchain Development / Coding

Block Geeks, @Blockgks

Crypto Data

Crypto Podcasts

LetsTalkBitcoin, @TheLTBNetwork

(Category: Crypto Podcasts)

LetsTalkBitcoin was the original podcast of Adam Levine, but since that time the LTB Network has grown to include 9 other podcasts, and along the way it moved to the blockchain as an LTBCoin was created on the Counterparty.io network. Content creators and audience members who participate in comments on the site receive disbursements of LTBCoin on a weekly basis. All 510,000,000 LTBCoin’s will finally be disbursed as of June 2019, after which no more coins will be created. If you’re a fan of cryptocurrencies and podcasts this is the site you’ll want to check out.

What Bitcoin Did, @whatbitcoindid

(Category: Podcast)

What Bitcoin Did is a podcast that chronicles the accidental entry into cryptocurrency trading by Peter McCormack. In the podcast and on the website he transparently shares his crypto journey, including his evolving strategy, a beginners guide, a blog and the podcast, where he interviews some of the leading people in the Bitcoin, cryptocurrency and Blockchain space.

The Bitcoin Knowledge Podcast, @tracemayer

(Category: Crypto Podcast)

Trace Mayer, the first popular blogger to advocate for Bitcoin back in 2010, takes to the airwaves to interview some of the top people in crypto, blockchain, and fintech. Always interesting, the show is sporadic, sometimes published once a week and sometimes seeing gaps of 5 or 6 weeks between shows as Mr. Mayer’s schedule permits. Certainly worth following and waiting for each podcast however, simply to hear the unique and novel developments being highlighted.

Noded, @NodedPodcast

(Category: Crypto Podcast)

The Noded Bitcoin Podcast was created to provide current events, technical news, and commentary to the Bitcoin community. The two hosts, Michael Goldstein and Pierre Rochard, are the founders of the Satoshi Nakamoto Institute and are heavily involved in the Bitcoin community. The bi-weekly podcast brings new information from thought leaders in the blockchain revolution.

Cashflow Ninja, @mclaubscher

(Category: Crypto Podcast)

Host M.C. Laubscher seeks to empower and inspire people to discover how to generate their own income and manage, grow and protect their own wealth in the new economy. While the Cashflow Ninja show isn’t dedicated specifically to Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies, there is a healthy dose from that area, and the other topics explored on the show are equally interesting for those looking to generate a passive income that is secure from centralized government interests.

Crypto News Aggregators

CryptoPanic, @CryptoPanicCom

(Category: Aggregator)

CryptoPanic was one of the first crypto news aggregators, and since its humble beginnings it has come to also include social signals for price action in the cryptocurrency markets, as well as a portfolio tracking feature and the ability for paid subscribers to add their own RSS/Atom feeds, Reddit and Twitter sources, and specify which cryptocurrencies they wish to follow. If you want up to the minute news from all across the web on a given cryptocurrency you need to give CryptoPanic a try. It’s brilliant!

Coin Spectator, @coinspectator

(Category: Aggregator)

Coin spectator is a real-time cryptocurrency news aggregator, pulling in data from hundreds of sources to keep you quickly and easily updated on all the happenings in the crypto world. Using the aggregator will help you to act on trends, project volatility, get investment tips, find ICO launches, follow projects milestones and even develop market indicators. The site also has a comprehensive ICO listing, and a blog that is updated every few days with news that the Coin Spectator team finds interesting in the cryptospace.

Coin Hooked, @coin_hooked

(Category: Aggregator)

Probably the prettiest news aggregator for crypto and blockchain, with a nice layout that isn’t cluttered and hard to read like some of its competitors. Also nice is the built-in ability to filter for cryptocurrencies, blockchain, ICOs, daytrading, Reddit and even YouTube. If only it had the ability to create your own filters and lists it would be nearly perfect. It’s worth checking out as is though, and could replace your RSS reader (if you still use one).

Bitcoin Agile, @bitcoinagile

(Category: Aggregator)

While I don’t think it has the prettiest interface, there’s no denying the power of the Bitcoin Agile aggregator. It pulls data from millions of sources, giving you an edge – theoretically. The reality is an information overload. There’s no way to effectively absorb all the information being given to you. That said, I do like the Insights and Trends sections of the site, and what seems like too much information to me might be ideal for you.

Crypto Vlogs

Bitesize Bitcoin, @bitesizebitcoin

(Category: Vlog)

Bitesize Bitcoin is an entertaining and often humorous look into the world of blockchain and cryptocurrencies. Peter, the host of the show, is on an exploratory mission to grow the Bitcoin network, invest, and innovate on this new nascent technology. He has an offbeat and unique way of looking at cryptocurrencies, and his outlook is long-term, so you won’t find any technical analysis here.

Host Chris Comey does a good job presenting the latest from the cryptocurrency universe, and if video is your thing this is well worth watching.
