Forums and user generated content sites

  1. Reddit – There are a bunch of different subreddit pages, dedicated to cryptocurrencies and blockchain. The biggest subreddit in the world for this topic is CryptoCurrency. But besides that there are hundreds of pages, often the major cryptocurrency projects have their own subreddit page. So have a browse a Reddit once in a while to get new insights from fellow crypto fans.
  2. Bitcointalk – This is the original Bitcoin and cryptocurrency forum. Famous for being the first and biggest forum centred around this new emerging technology. It is still one of the biggest and most popular forums dedicated to Bitcoin and cryptocurrency markets. Learn about new crypto projects, get reviews and engage in discussion with the rest of the community here. Also it is founded by the same person (or group) that created Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto.
  3. Telegram – Check out the telegram channels for your crypto specific company. If you are a big fan of Ethereum, Cardano, NEO, VeChain, etc then join their Telegram channel.
  4. Medium – For example Hacker Noon can often be a great source of inspiration and insights. Often full of opinion pieces and fundamental technical and economic analyses.
  5. Steemit – A site similar like Medium where users controls the media flow and shares their own articles. It’s also a blockchain based media outlet where the cryptocurrency Steem is the used currency paid to authors

Most popular Reddit pages for crypto

  1. CryptoCurrency – The biggest subreddit for cryptocurrencies – where every crypto under the sun is discussed.
  2. r/bitcoin – The biggest in numbers but second in activity. And of course Bitcoin is the main topic of interest here. It is more pro Bitcoin (Core – the original)
  3. r/btc – Is open for all types of Bitcoin discussion, but it is more Bitcoin Cash pro vs Bitcoin (Core). Then to make it all a bit more confusing there’s also a subreddit for Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin Cash SV all far too complex to delve into here.
  4. EthTrader – For Ethereum and ETH related discussions. With a focus on trading and memes vs r/Ethereum
