The crypto space has grown very quickly over the last 2 years, and even though the prices are down right now there are plenty of exciting games, Dapps, and more projects coming out soon. Hopefully we can slowly eliminate the word ICO from our vocabulary as a bunch of these ICOs were scams after all, and it seems like there should be a better way to do all of this. Anyways, here are a few crypto Youtubers that I still consider worthwhile to pay attention to. This is my short list of crypto YouTubers that aren't trying to sell you something at the end of every single video and some of them won't sell you anything.
CryptoBud: CryptoBud is still one of my favorite crypto YouTubers because he is an intelligent person who gives his honest opinions about crypto projects. I think it's possible to accuse him of shilling coins that he likes occassionally, but he usually gives his realistic price predictions for the cryptocurrency marketplace as a whole as well as some of his favorite coins like Neo and CryptoBud was talking about Neo when it was still called AntShares. CryptoBud also understands enough technical analysis in order to make good or at least honest price predictions and I haven't seen him trying to sell anything to his viewers. I like watching CryptoBud because he tends to focus on some of the bigger pictures of cryptocurrency including possible correlations between crypto and the price of gold or crypto and the stock market.
Chico Crypto: Chico crypto is based out of Chico, California which is the reason for that name. Chico crypto is a good channel in my opinion because he definitely won't back down from speaking his mind, and he has even gone as far as accusing Binance of being evil. While, I personally don't agree with him on this I can still appreciate the fact that he is speaking his mind. Chico crypto is guilty of shilling Elastos very often, but he isn't blindly shilling Elastos. There is potential that Elastos becomes a major player in the future. The main reason why I would recommend Chico crypto is because he has pretty well researched videos where he has an open minded attitude overall, and if you can prove him wrong I know that he'd be willing to admit his mistakes.
Crypt0: Crypt0 is known for his daily and consistent updates on the crypto market. He has been around for a while in the crypto space and continued to make tons of new content even in this bear market. Crypt0 has also had notable crypto pundits on his channel including Trace Mayer, one of the first public bloggers talking about cryptocurrency and talking about the extreme potential of Bitcoin when it was just $0.25. Cryptocurrency is clearly his biggest passion and he has also interviewed John McAfee who I'm already assuming most people know who he is. John McAfee has also stated that he plans on running for president in 2020 in order to spread the news about blockchain, but he doesn't believe that he will win.
These are the main crypto YouTubers I will continue to follow throughout 2019. There are several crypto Youtubers still out there, but I have stopped following a lot of them including Suppoman, Crypto Gurus, and more. I have found that Suppoman continues to try to sell his courses to people in this crypto bear market and I wish he would focus on improving his quality of content instead.
The reason I’m no longer a fan of Crypto Gurus is because I took his advice and bought into Havven about 6 months ago and lost my entire investment. I don't think Crypto Gurus is the right title for this channel, and I’m not even sure if Havven is still a live project. I also have to add that Tom from Crypto Gurus tends to be talking about projects that I’ve never heard of before such as Cornucopia and Alprockz. While I cannot fully say if these projects are scams, the fact that I am a pretty well informed crypto investor and that I have never heard of these projects makes me question if he is getting paid to promote these coins. Will we ever hear of Alprockz in the future? I'm not sure. Let me know your opinions here, and if there are better people to follow.
Update: The head of marketing at Alprockz has contacted me to inform me that there are still in the ICO stage and definitely not a scam. Here is the website: https://alprockz.io/ Do your own research here before you invest. Also, Havven has rebranded to Synthetix, Sythetix.io. I never received my Synthetix tokens when the swap occurred so that is my frustration with this project, but it's also possible that other Havven holders did not have this issue, so I think I might have jumped the gun here. If you were a Havven holder do you now have your Synthetix tokens? This will settle some of the confusion.
