Tools and Resources for Cryptocurrency

  1. Blockfolio — This is most frequently used tool because it allows me to track the coins that I want to follow (both that I own as well as ones I’m watching). The other major reason why I use the app is the news section. They keep it simple, which I like. Blockfolio tracks two of the sites I recommend below. It’s a convenient tool for keeping quick tabs on your favorite coins and also keeping up to date on daily crypto news, all in one simple, non-obtrusive app. www.Blockfolio.com
  2. WebsitesCoinDesk.com is great for accurate and analytical reporting by industry experts on business and fintech. CoinTelegraph.com is geared more toward retail investors and casual observers. CoinDesk is more for tech geeks and CoinTel is more for average folks. CryptoPanic.com is a news aggregator that includes social media posts along with macro and micro news. Basically you get news for all types of crypto projects including social media news so you keep a pulse on everything, including articles from both CoinDesk and CoinTel(which can also become overwhelming).
  3. Social Media — Social media is great for second-by-second information, but it’s also a double edged sword. There is no shortage of hype and misinformation. Twitter and Reddit are great resources for retrieving up-to-date information on the macro industry as well as for the latest news on your favorite projects. Keep in mind it’s easy to get sucked into a vacuum of hype, so it’s always good to question projects and stay analytical. I like using social media as a pulse. Don’t believe everything you read on the internet!
  4. CoinMarketCap or other comprehensive coin/exchange index. Tracking exchanges and volumes is a great way of “following the money.” Information is everything. Sometimes you’ll see a quick increase and determine it’s artificial “pumping” whereas other times you’ll see a healthy increase in volume day after day. This is just one tool of many to use; they are all to be used in coordination with each other.
