It's Monday and that means the latest instalment of our podcast Crypto Curious.
In this episode, your hosts Tracey, Blake and Craig talk about where to find the most reliable crypto information. From websites and apps to books and videos, we explore all the resources available for budding crypto enthusiasts to get the most up-to-date info.
Blake kicks off this episode by giving us his advice on where to find good crypto information, including popular news website Cointelegraph and the weekly podcast UpOnly. Craig gives us the lowdown on Crypto Twitter (CT), a nondescript and ever-changing collection of popular Twitter accounts that define the scene. CT is infamous within the crypto sector, and although it can get emotionally charged at times, it’s still one of the best sources for breaking crypto news.
