Best sources for *really* up to date crypto and blockchain news?

I am trying to curate some lists of really good daily news sources. Not the kind of thing you read an in-depth article about on Coindesk 48 hours later once your twitter feed is already full of it, but really current stuff - rumours and breaking news, the kind of thing which can really swing a market one way or another, or explain a swing fast when you encounter it.

Any great feeds or accounts that you follow? Especially you traders on this forum, who do you listen to, for real up-to-date news, amongst all the froth and FUD out there?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions, and between us we can make a great list here!

@dev_zl I really enjoy that author's articles and used to follow them quite closely.

I am following Blockchain News - CCN and I am finding it interesting

@nicolaortiz any links you'd like to share? What's their page?

Really a great source to follow

Like you mentioned, a lot of times you visit a news source, but it might be 48+ hours behind information on Twitter and is very outdated. For this reason, I would suggest filtering your Twitter feed (or creating a new one) to only include blockchain-relevant information. Follow the source. This is your best bet to receive real-time news and react to it before the rest of the herd.

I was teaching myself some PHP, and used a Twitter API project as my "Hello World". It wasn't as hard as I thought and was able to operate on JSON objects with lots of good data in them.

So here's my suggestion: Write some code using the Twitter API to poll cryptocurrency hashtags. Extract all URL links, poster, and dateTime from all tweets. Only store the data if the URL does not exist in the database yet. You might need to trim affiliate references first, but that's why you're a programmer 😛 .

Then after a while, you'll have a list of people who post links first. Then sort through those people and score them by diversity of base URLs, and you'll have a good list to follow.

Write a second bit of code to then build a dynamic page of most recent links posted by these people, and you won't even waste time in Twitter. Then, and this is the most important part, send me a link to this page of great URL links.

Thanks for this! Some useful information.

Just curious because of the "dev" in your username... do you do any Ethereum development work?

I know that @admin is looking for developers: https://blockchainforums.info/topic/75/seeking-solidity-developers/ 🙂

Thank you so very much, @dev_zl for this link. I just moved it to the top of my news-source bookmarks, and will check it again tomorrow (10th of May) for the next issue. It looks like the only resource I would need to keep on top of Ethereum news and last week includes everything I'd heard about so it seems to be comprehensive. Looking forward to your next tip. 👏

Hands Down .. "Crypto Panic" they recently released an android and ios apk
I wont post a link as I feel its not wise to randomly click on links, especially on a crypto forum
