What's Next?

Whenever I speak on a panel or with people interested in beginning to invest in Cryptocurrencies, one of the first things I am asked is "where can I learn more?" With over 1,500 digital currencies in existence, getting started can be overwhelming. Choosing a profitable project to invest in isn't Just about acquiring more knowledge it is about discernment. When researching you must take into account the source of the information. Financial mainstay websites have been known to be negatively biased against crypto, spreading FUD all over the place.

I prefer to get my information from specialized sites that have proven themselves (at least in my humble opinion) to be reliable sources. Here are some of my faves.

Twitter- Most Founders of emerging companies are active on twitter giving real time information and engaging with their followers. The answer to any questions about a particular coin or project may just be a DM away.

Telegram Channels - Telegram is an encrypted cloud based messaging app. Users can form channels based on interest and send messages and exchange photos, videos, stickers, audio and files of any type. There are countless groups offering tips, and info on cryptocurrency like The Official Bitcoin Channel, Also lots of crypto centric websites have Telegram channels as well.

youtube - There are countless videos of people explaining key terms, giving trading tips etc.

Investopedia - A great resource for all types of investing with an unbiased view on crypto. - Identifies inactive, failed projects and scam coins.

Coindesk - Leading website for all things Blockchain related.

Bitcoinist - Current events, market prices, coin reviews etc.

Cointelegraph - Bitcoin and Ethereum news, analysis and review about technology, finance, blockchain and markets.

Have I missed any informative websites, What are your faves? Drop me a comment and let me know!
