We had the pleasure of sitting with Sir John Hargrave to chat about his latest book, Blockchain for Everyone.

If you grab a copy of this book from Blockchainforeveryone.com, you can get $25 worth of DAI to your wallet. That means you are getting the book for free until DAI reserves last.
Blockchain-For-Everyone-CovePlease note that we do not have any referral or sponsor relationship. We just want our audience to take advantage of the offer before the DAI reserves run out.

Sir John Hargrave is a spiritually inclined, passionate blockchain influencer.

Although he bought his first bitcoin at $125, he did not sell it when the market hit its all-time high of $20,000. “I believe that over the long term, this is the most exciting digital asset class. I also picked up some additional altcoins, and part of my book is to teach people on how to think about these as part of investments,” he said.

There is a lot of room to make money in the blockchain and crypto space

Blockchain-MoneyWe are still in the nascent stages of the blockchain technology. Sir John’s team was reminded of how early we are in the space when they were collaborating with the DAI Group to make the free giveaway possible.

Even with the expertise and knowledge that Sir John possessed, it was not an easy system to set up. And that is one of the problems we have in the space.

However, these problems actually represent a massive potential for people and companies to make money. Everyone who builds solutions to solve these issues will make a fortune.

It is not about throwing money at things and hoping it will stick. There is a method to being invested in this space, “There is also another idea called Steady drip investing. In other words, set aside a small amount each month, the same amount you put into your overall portfolio, like 60% stocks, 35% bonds, and 5% blockchain investments,” he said.

For those who do not want to spend an exorbitant amount of time researching, Sir John’s book, Blockchain for Everyone, offers an easy start, “You are going to learn how to make money with bitcoin and blockchain, in a really entertaining way,” Sir John said in response to our question about ‘describing his book in one sentence.’

Every portfolio must have blockchain-based assets   

Sir John shares similar sentiment to that of Yale University professors, Yukun Liu and Aleh Tsyvinski, who said that every portfolio should have 6% cryptocurrencies.

However, Sir John takes this idea of cryptocurrency diversification a step further.

Sir John says, “You can buy bitcoin, you can buy altcoins, and you can also invest in traditional stocks of companies that are investing in the blockchain space, like IBM, Accenture, and Bank of America. Anybody who is applying for patents in the blockchain space.”

One world currency is a true possibility

one world currencySir John says blockchain presents an opportunity for the Nations across the world to come together and build a world currency.

“One world money for one human species of one world, that’s an amazing opportunity of a lifetime,” he said.

Having such a global currency model opens the market for new opportunities and cross border trade. It will also bring about a normalization of living conditions in most underdeveloped countries as they start competing on the global platform.

Sir John shares his enthusiasm about this possibility, “Global currency for the global economy. That is going to open up trade, and it’s going to provide access for the unbanked. It’s going to unlock this new era of prosperity and wealth.”

Facebook is bigger than the governments, and that is scary

Facebook LibraFacebook in sheer numbers is bigger than any country size. This means that if Facebook were a nation, it would have been the biggest of all.

Another thing that is going on in favor of Facebook is that people are more tuned into Facebook than they are about the current affairs of their own nation. This means Facebook can sway public sentiment on any topic to its own whim. They even paid a 5 Billion dollar fine, admitting that they did.

Talking about Facebook’s Libra, Sir John thinks that “If anyone can do this, then Facebook can, because they have such an enormous global reach.”

Talking about the power that Facebook wields on public, Sir John commented, “I see things differently from everyone else. Everyone sees Facebook as under the control of the Government, and I see Facebook as above the control of any government. I understand that Facebook is a US Company, and they have to abide by the laws. But the power that Facebook wields, in reality, is much greater than the power of the US government.”

Thinking to invest in Altcoins?  

invest cryptocurrencyYou do not have to buy bitcoin or cryptocurrencies to invest in the blockchain space. As Sir John said – you can start with owning shares of the companies that are investing heavily into this space. That is one way to start early and grow with the space.

Instead of trying to learn all the lessons by yourself, you can learn from the industry experts like Sir John.

Sir John’s team also offers a free scorecard that helps you analyze the altcoin projects on your own.

“We have what is called Blockchain Investor Scorecard, and it’s a free scorecard for reviewing and rating different altcoins with 25 different criteria you can use, and we will walk you through it. Here’s how to look at an altcoin and decide whether it is a good investment or not.”

CryptoTapas wishes Sir John and his team great luck with the book and all the endeavors they have undertaken to propel the blockchain and cryptocurrency space. We need more people like him to bring about the adoption sooner.

John-Hargrave-Interview

CryptoTapas: Congratulations on publishing your book: Blockchain for Everyone.  Let’s begin by you telling us a bit about yourself and how you got started in the blockchain space?

Sir John Hargrave:
I bought bitcoin in 2013 when it was $125. It was hard to buy bitcoin back then, as such, I had to make a wire transfer to Belarus, and I did not know where Belarus was.   I had to go to my bank and make an international money transfer. The irony was, when I made this transfer to buy bitcoin, it costed me $13 and it was going to take 3 days to make the transfer.  To say it was slow and expensive to send money overseas is an understatement. However, the irony was that Bitcoin was going to disrupt that very thing. 

That change is slowly coming to pass and remains to be one of the biggest use cases of digital assets. 

Fast forward, 4 years later, my bitcoin was worth $20,000 which I bought for $125.  That was almost 16000% increase in value.  

Media ShowerI had this marketing company called Media Shower and I said, we are going all in on blockchain.  We are going to turn into a blockchain marketing company because this technology is the future.

2017 was a mania, everything was making money and then with the 2018 Crypto winter,  things slowed down.  

The book I wrote, Blockchain for Everyone, is a story of me buying bitcoin and betting my company on blockchain and this crazy rollercoaster ride we had since then and how we have to transform ourselves through that amazing journey.

It is exciting times.  We are building a new internet of money.  That’s how I define blockchain, the internet of money, one money for one world.  Global currency for global economy. That is going to open up trade and it’s going to provide access for the unbanked. it’s going to unlock this new era of prosperity and wealth. 

We have to think of ourselves as an American second and humans first.

One world money for one human species of one world, that’s an amazing opportunity of a lifetime.

CryptoTapas: This is a bit of a personal question. Did you sell any of your bitcoins at $20,000?

Sir John Hargrave:
No, I have not sold my bitcoin. I believe in its long term potential. I did give some away. However, I believe over the long term, this is the most exciting digital asset class. I also picked up some additional alt coins. And part of my book is, how to think about these coins as part of investments.    

Talking about Blockchain as an investment is an oxymoron. First, you are dealing with Bitcoin that has been associated with the dark web and give Bitcoin some legitimacy; and second, making people think about this as an investment opportunity. 

The way I describe it to people is it should be a small part of your overall investment portfolio.  If you have a big portfolio, 2.5% or 5% or maybe even 10% of your portfolio can be in bitcoin and some altcoins.  If you had put a small portion of your portfolio into bitcoin over the last 4 years, that portion of your portfolio would have increased 4x.  

This  kind of opportunity is open to all of us now and we have to educate the investors.

CryptoTapas: In your opinion, will we ever see gains similar to or surpassing 2017?

Sir John Hargrave:
I try not to make predictions about the future.  I will say that I do believe in the long term value of the blockchain space and there are many ways to get involved.

You can buy bitcoin, you can buy altcoin, and you can also invest in traditional stocks of companies that are investing the blockchain space, like IBM, Accenture, Bank of America and companies that are  applying for patents in the blockchain space.  

There is also another idea called steady drip investing.  In other words, set aside a small amount each month, the same amount you put into your overall portfolio, like 60% stocks, 35% bonds and 5% blockchain investments.  

If you do that every month, then you can take your emotions out of the market movements and avoid riding that rollercoaster. You just calmly and patiently keep investing, eventually this will grow, in my view.

CryptoTapas: What are the things that really excite you about the blockchain space?

Sir John Hargrave:
This idea of one world money to me is what is most interesting.  Whether it is bitcoin or some other altcoin like Facebook’s Libra, whatever it is, there is going to be global money.  All the nations have to work together. They cannot outlaw it. It is like outlawing the internet.

You also don’t want to make it illegal because then that money goes elsewhere.  What I think our government must do, all of our governments, is to collaborate, almost like the United Nations, they have to come together so that all of them have a seat at the table and help influence the direction of this global money.

CryptoTapas: Do you think Facebook’s Libra currency will ever get off the ground?

Sir John Hargrave:
If anyone can do this, then Facebook can, because they have such an enormous global reach.   I see things differently from everyone else. Everyone sees Facebook as under the control of the Government and I see Facebook as above the control of any one government.  I understand that Facebook is a US Company and they have to abide by the laws. But the power that Facebook wields, in reality, is much greater than the power of the US government.  

Facebook is more imbedded in our heads and in the heads of people all around the world than the government.  

CryptoTapas: Facebook in numbers is close to a 2.4 billion user base company.  That is bigger than India, and part of China, combined. And it scares the governments to think that Facebook can wield more power than any single government on the face of the earth if they were to successfully launch their own currency.

Sir John Hargrave:
Facebook covers 20% of total world’s population and they are right to be scared about it.   Because that could threaten the sovereignty of the US dollar or any other National currency.  The power of the United States, in our case, comes largely from the power of the US dollar.

Problem is, the genie is already out of the box. If it’s not Facebook, it will be someone else and you cannot fight these anymore than you can fight the internet. This type of globalization is a force that wants to happen.  World wants a single kind of money and what we can do is work together to lead the conversation. 

CryptoTapas: Do you believe Blockchain is for everyone?  The reason I ask is that there is still some taboo attached to the conversation of blockchain and bitcoin.

Sir John Hargrave:
Is money for everyone?  

Yuval Noah Harrari who wrote the book “Sapiens”, I quote him in Blockchain for Everyone, and he says “Money is the most successful human invention ever devised.” Because, we do not all agree on the same religion or political structure but we all agree on money.  In essence, it is the greatest method of human cooperation that we have ever invented.

And he is right.  We all believe in money in one way or another. So when I say Blockchain is the internet of money, I mean, internet of value.  That includes money, rewards, loyalty points, etc, anything of value. 

However, blockchain as a technology is very confusing for most people. And the very first idea of writing my book is I wanted to make it accessible by reading the book from cover to cover and learn something that they can then use in the real world.

That’s why, after several rewrites of the entire book, I ended up writing the book as a story, like a move, with act 1, 2 and 3.  So, you basically learn about blockchain through the story of our personal journey in to the space.

By making it accessible by everyone, our goal is to make everyone interested in the technology so that everyone begins using this new type of digital money. 

Our plan is very large and very long term.  What we are doing right now, what CryptoTapas is doing right now, is going to last for the next 100 years, which is capture these stories so that future historians understand how we all did this, how we built this new internet of money.

CryptoTapas: In your view, what is the one thing that is stopping people from getting into Bitcoin and altcoins?

Sir John Halgrave:
Education is the major issue.  I am very passionate about educating the space about the real value that blockchain, bitcoin and all of these altcoins, as well.

The other piece of it is just user friendliness of the technology.  It is still hard to get into crypto. 

For instance, we are giving this give away with the book, where you go to Blockchainforeveryone.com and purchase the book for $25, we are giving $25 in DAI cryptocurrency with every purchase of the book.   That is, book costs about $25 and you are getting $25 in DAI.  

To do this DAI give away, it has been really difficult.  

The logistics surrounding giving away this free DAI is still slow.  It is not DAI issue, it is just the complexity that surrounds the infrastructure around installing wallet, transfer to wallet, etc.  

This has reminded me again that we are still at the very early stage of this technology.  Coinbase is trying to spearhead this space and we will get there.

CryptoTapas: For those who are on the fence to buy the book, what is one thing you would say, other than the fact that they are getting this for free if they buy it from your website and get $25 in DAI back. 

Sir John Halgrave:
It’s simple. You are going to learn how to make money with bitcoin and blockchain, in a really entertaining way.

That’s the best way I can describe it in one sentence.

CryptoTapas: Do you also talk about altcoins in your book?

Sir John Halgrave:
We do. We have what is called as Blockchain Investor Scorecard and its a free scorecard for reviewing and rating different altcoins with 25 different criteria you can use and we walk you through here’s how to look at an altcoin and decide whether it is a good investment or not.

CryptoTapas: Thank you John for taking time to speak to us on a Friday evening. We appreciate it.

6 Massive Benefits of Cryptocurrency

Published

on

Benefits of Cryptocurrency

It is normal to be hesitant about using cryptocurrency as the medium of financial transactions. 

There is a school of thought which believes, it is a domain suitable for criminals, fraudsters, and terrorists. Cryptocurrencies allow them to maintain anonymity for discreet transactions and ransomware scams.

However, the increasing acceptance of Bitcoin as a digital currency has initiated a positive perspective around this mode. It brings a distinct set of pros for the users, making them overlook the risks tag along.

According to the Finder, a post on social media surfaces about Bitcoin every three seconds. If we do the math, it means 1203 posts pop up per hour, making it to 20 posts per minute.

A more general view on the crypto landscape speaks of its overall growth, too. Block Social tells us how cryptocurrency exchanges around the globe have exceeded 300 during 2020.

In fact, the success of crypto shows us the loopholes of the traditional banking system. If you, too, want to leap on this bandwagon and aren’t sure about your next move, this is the right place. Our blog sheds light on the positive aspects of cryptocurrency that make it a more established form of financial trade. 

Healthereum

1. Easy transactions

When dealing with brokers or legal representatives, you have to pay the transaction fee from time to time. This comes along with immense paperwork, commission, brokerage charges, and so much more. Using cryptocurrency eliminates the need for a middle man. The transaction changes into a one-to-one affair taking place on a secure network.

No wonder Forbes stated that adopting blockchain technology can save financial organizations around $12 billion yearly. A deduction of extra charges from third parties and reduced operations cost is saving millions for huge organizations.

Moreover, the transactions are transparent, making it easier for you to establish audit trials. There is no more confusion over who pays whom. All parties involved in the transaction know each other quite well. Accountability on each party grows.

2. Asset transfers

A financial analyst rightfully describes cryptocurrency blockchain to be a “large property rights database.” On the one hand, it helps execute and enforce two-party contracts on commodities such as real estate and automobiles. At the same time, it also facilitates special modes of transfer. 

As per Born2Invest, Bitcoin alone is responsible for an average of 350 000 daily transactions on the Blockchain. Meanwhile, Coinbase has 30 million cryptocurrency users (Block Social). The increasing figures of each crypto speak of its acceptance worldwide.

The parties involved in asset transfer can design contracts and add third-party approvals at a later date. It also helps to reference the external facts and gives the parties exclusive governance of their account. It reduces the time and money involved in asset transfers. Perhaps this is why US federal government spending on Blockchain shall reach $123.5 million by 2022.

3. Confidential transactions

Cryptocurrency purchases remain discreet. Unless a user voluntarily publishes his transactions, the purchase is never associated with their identity. In official scenarios, such as when you put your cars for sale, the parties must reveal an association with their cryptocurrencies. It helps to establish trust and relevance.

Within the cash/credit system, your entire transaction history turns into a reference document for the banks/credit agencies involved. On the contrary, cryptocurrency is a transaction that is a unique exchange between two parties. They can negotiate and agree on preferable terms. The information exchange takes place on the “push” basis. This means you transmit only that which you wish to send to the recipient and nothing else.

It keeps your financial history secure and guards you against identity theft. Chances of which are quite high under the traditional transaction system. 

On top of this, the combination of Blockchain with IoT is considered revolutionary by the experts. This has accelerated data exchange, lowering the operation costs, and improved the security of files. Your Tech Diet predicted that 75% of the IoT industry would adopt Blockchain technology by the end of 2020. Lack of exposure is, thus, something the entire industry is looking for.

4. Transaction Fee

You have probably faced hefty monthly account statements from your bank/credit companies. The transaction fee charged at every transaction you have made might leave you shocked. The whopping fee of multiple transactions can take you by surprise at the end of each month.

In the case of cryptocurrency exchange, the data miners receive their share from the cryptocurrency network involved. Transaction fee does not apply as the remote and separate computer systems that do the number-crunching get a pretty fair share. 

According to Investopedia, the Bitcoin reward for miners halves for every 210 000 blocks added to the chain. Nonetheless, this system has freed the transaction parties to pay the fee, making it the most feasible. 

However, there might be some external fee involved if you engage a third-party management service to maintain the crypto wallet. These charges are likely to be quite less than the transaction charges levied by the traditional banking system. 

5. Hold Ownership

The traditional banking system works in a manner where the amount goes to the nominee if a person passes away. The chances of the account closing are quite high when you infringe the terms of their services. Unlike this framework, digital currencies give you the sole ownership of private and public encryption keys. This makes it easier for you to identify the encryption network.

6. High security

Once a party authorizes the cryptocurrency transfer, they cannot reverse it. This is not the case in “charge-back” transactions allowed by the credit companies. Cryptocurrency gives you reliable encryption throughout the transaction process to keep it protected from bugs and malicious entities.

Systems like Binance Smart Chain are enabling people to do more with BTC.

Final Thoughts 

Cryptocurrency is taking the financial world by storm, and we know the reasons why. It is about time you kickstart your digital finances journey and make the most out of it. Who knows what surprises are about to come later in this landscape!

Cardano or PolkaDot? Which One to Invest In?

Published

on

Cardano vs Polkadot

There is a new battle in the crypto space.  Cardano (ADA) and PolkaDot (DOT) maximalists are headbutting as to which project is better and why.

The conversations are intense to say the least and we will try to provide our view on which one we are leaning toward and the reasons why, in this rather short article.

Just to be clear, we are invested in both ADA and DOT so we have a vested interest in both projects, however, we are now asked to pick one over the other and that brings us to this article.

Decentralization

The whole spirit of cryptocurrencies is the concept of decentralization, however, some of the more popular projects don’t seem to have a grasp of what that means.

Diem (previously Libra) or XRP etc., are controlled by a group for validators who could, in theory, easily collude, in our view.

With DOT, things are not as centralized as some other projects with about 1000 validators securing the platform.

However, ADA has the most number of nodes and has most of its circulating supply staked on its wallet. The community behind ADA has biggest proponents of decentralized frameworks.

ADA: 8 (top 10 is reserved for BTC)

DOT: 6

Team

Cardano boasts the maximum number of Ph.Ds on its team and has a more decentralized team structure.  You have teams that are working exclusively on wallet and staking while you have other teams focusing on interoperability. Yet, another team is focused on bridging projects from Ethereum to Cardano.

DOT has the ammunition of Gavin behind it. He is undoubtedly one of the brilliant minds in the space. 

However, as we learned in basic math, sum total is always greater than an individual unit.  This applies more aptly with these projects. In our opinion, Cardano has a greater edge when it comes to collective human capital.

Having Charles Hoskinson helps ADAs impression.

ADA: 8

DOT: 6

Social presence

There is no competition when it comes to social presence and engaging the community when it comes to the leaders of these two projects.

While DOT’s founder Gavin might come out as eccentric and polished in the social media, Charles takes the cake in engaging with his audience and making things sensible for the community.

ADA: 9 

DOT: 7

On a mission

Whenever you hear Charles speak about ADA you will immediately understand that he is on a mission to bring the marvels of blockchain enabled financial services to all corners of the world.

Cardano’s team is now focused on the South Africa continent to bring the under-previleged onto the world commerce through their platform. They are even close to signing a contract with Ethiopia government in 2021.

While DOT is catapulting the entire space forward it just lacks the same charm that comes with a project on a grandiose mission.

ADA: 8

DOT: 6 

Miscellaneous considerations 

Market cap: ADA has $20 Billion market cap while DOT has $19 Billion, as such they are on par with each other when it comes to valuation. The large cap is a stamp of approval from the crypto community.

Price: ADA is at around 60 cents while DOT has been stabilising at $20 at the time of this writing. When the newbies come to the market and they see they cannot afford Bitcoin or Ethereum, they will most likely go after the projects that are under $1. This does not mean DOT is inferior, it is just an edge that low priced tokens have over higher priced projects. It’s just a newbie mindset that drives higher demand during bull runs to lower priced projects.

Inflationary supply

DOT has an inflationary supply model while ADAs supply is capped.

Yes, DOTs supply is far larger than DOT, however, there is no new minting on ADA when compared to DOT.

Mainnet

DOTs technology is operational and is onboarding projects already.  ADA is scheduled to launch its mainnet this month (Feb 2021). ADA has been in works for many years now and if their product matches the hype and the wait – then it may not matter as much that they are late to the party. However, if there are issues with their mainnet – it may not bode well for ADA.

Conclusion: Total score

ADA: 33

DOT: 25

If you are a DOT fan you might think this score is skewed.   If you are an ADA fan you might think it should score perfect points in all fronts.

In fact, there are some areas where DOT is a clear winner like having a functioning platform. ADA, in our opinion, takes the prize with clear fandom, gigantic mission and a total brainiac project.

Best of the Best YouTube Channels to Follow for your Crypto Fix

Published

on

Best Crypto Youtubers

There are literally 100s of crypto-experts on YouTube who claim to have cracked the secret code that can make you millions in crypto riches. 

Who should you follow?  

We have followed many YouTubers, subscribing and unsubscribing to avoid the noise and after having been in this space for over 4 years, we have narrowed our favorite crypto YouTube channels to just a few.

In this article, we will show you our favorite YouTubers and what we like about each one of them. 

Overall number 1: Coin Bureau

coin bureau When it comes to deep analysis, composed demeanor and outright professional crypto channel in the entire space, we have not come across anyone better than Guy.  

Not only is he great at the reviews and in depth analysis, if you have followed the channel long enough you will realize that he reviews the gems long before others pick on the momentum.  

He picks solid projects, never shills a shitty project to his followers and is upfront about his views which he backs up with solid research.

This is the best no-shill and no bull crypto channel on YouTube in our view.

Best original content: Chico Crypto

chico crypto review

If you love a bit of quirky, goofy and somewhat out there viewpoints on the crypto space then there is no one better than Tyler at Chico Crypto. 

His investigation stretches the boundaries of research (and sometimes common sense) but he does do a bang up job on every video.  

I am yet to come across a boring video on this channel.  I will admit that his live streams can be a drag sometimes but his followers seem to relish his presence.

You may not like or agree with what Tyler presents on this channel but you will absolutely be floored by the originality.   

Best TA: TIED: Crypto Capital Venture & Tyler S

                         Crypto Capital Venture Tyler S crypto

With under 90K subscribers at the time of this writing, Dan may not be the most popular of the Crypto channels [yet] but his TA analysis is just so easy to follow.

Dan makes it easy for non-technical folks to understand what’s going on in the market in the language of TA.

There are other folks on YouTube who are good at TA but their videos are so obnoxious that they leave you with a massive headache.  

Not Dan’s Crypto Capital Venture channel.   Dan walks you through the markets in such a calm, composed and professional manner that you might start caring about those candles.

We are forced to share the Best Title for crypto TA on YouTube with Tyler S. 

Tyler’s expertise on TAs is quite awesome and he has a funny way of delivering it too.  

Best expertise on the markets: Alessio Rastani

Allesio RastaniIt doesn’t matter if you are just lurking around the crypto markets or if you trade in the traditional markets…Alessio is one of the best guys on YouTube for great insights into the broad market and its impact on Crypto.

While everyone on YouTube (not the people on this list, of course) is either quick to FOMO or FUD, Alessio is just grounded in fundamentals and technicals.

When you are high on FOMO, he can bring you to the ground.

When you are getting buried in FUD, he can lift you up with facts, not false hopium.

Alessio is personable, professional and an honest guy to follow to understand the markets ahead of others.

Best round up of the market: AltCoin Daily

Altcoin DailyWant to stay up-to-date on what’s happening in the crypto space but don’t have time to keep up?  

Fear not. AltCoin Daily got you covered.

This channel is just a gem among the channels that bring crypto market updates in a concise and palatable format.

You can sense the dedication in the way Austin brings the updates and his opinions in front of his audience. No wonder the channel has recently hit over 420K subscribers.

Best humble and honest take: Crazy 4 Cryptos

Crazy 4 crypto

What does Crypto mean to you?

Most people will say ‘Freedom’, yet, most of the YouTubers we see on the Tube will be broadcasting from their bedrooms or backyards (nothing wrong with that) but not Dave.

He has been in Thailand and streams his videos directly from the beach.

You will immediately connect with his simpleton style and honest reviews.  

He has been touting about Theta when it was trading in cents and now those who followed him are very happy.

Besides Theta, Dave talks about a lot of topics in terms of storing your coins, being careful with people and how to have a long-term plan in space.

Honorable mentions

Team Underground (TA)

We had too many channels to weed out for the TA category and that is why we had to pick two winners, however, Team Underground is a channel we cannot skip.

This underdog channel has been more right about the calls than any other mainstream channel. If you like your TAs and technical side of crypto – be sure to check this channel out.

BitBoy

People either love him or hate him.  There is no middle ground when it comes to BitBoy.  

Personally, we have to weed out a lot of noise while browsing through his channel since he picks a new project every few days (or weeks) and can become overwhelming. 

However, the fresh content is worth the watch.

EllioTraders

The guy behind this channel is truly vested in the space. So much so that he recently launched his own crypto project.

It’s definitely refreshing to see the YouTuber taking his expertise into a live project.  

The reason we did not list this channel on the BEST list is because of the constant feed of projects he pitches that is a bit overbearing for our taste.  

Nevertheless, a great channel and great recommendations.

Conclusion

There are 100s of YouTube channels out there but not everyone is worth your attention. We hope you found some channels of interest through this article.

Note: if we missed any gem of a channel, please let us know and we will be more than happy to add it after review.

Thank you for reading and sharing this article. We appreciate you.
