Best Cryptocurrency Newsletters (2021)

This post contains affiliate links and I may receive compensation when you click certain links.

There’s a lot to keep up with in the cryptocurrency space.

Because of that, it can be easy to miss important updates, interesting articles, and ‘dank memes’. Luckily for us, there are some great cryptocurrency newsletters that wade through the plethora of bullshit and deliver the best bits to your inbox.

In this post, I’ve pulled together the best cryptocurrency newsletters which I’m currently subscribed to:

The Best Cryptocurrency Newsletters

1. The Node

Previously known as ‘Blockchain Bites’, The Node is a newsletter that’s published every weekday.

It’s pulled together by Marc Hochstein over at CoinDesk and provides you with the latest cryptocurrency news from CoinDesk, Twitter, and anywhere else.

It manages to squeeze quite a bit of information into each newsletter. It’s a good choice if you’re keen to keep up with everything that’s happening in the cryptocurrency world on a daily basis.

CoinDesk has a few other newsletters you can subscribe to:

  • Money Reimagined: Published every Friday, this looks at how value is being transformed in the digital age.
  • First Mover: Published every weekday, this helps readers to make sense of the cryptocurrency markets.
  • Market Wrap: Published every weekday, this is a shorter-form version of First Mover. I like it.
  • Crypto Long & Short: Published every Sunday, this provides professional investors with insights, news, and analysis.
  • State of Crypto: Published every Wednesday, this is a weekly look at how crypto-related regulation/policies are changing.

I particularly like what Money Reimagined is doing. It dives into a specific topic in detail, touches on what people are saying about cryptocurrency outside our little bubble, and links out to some interesting reads. Here’s an example of one issue.

2. CoinSnacks

Originally known as CryptoWeekly, CoinSnacks is a weekly newsletter which curates and summarises the most important news and the best articles in the cryptocurrency world.

CoinSnacks started in December 2017 with a consistent to-the-point style. Since then, it has slowly become a more in-depth look at the latest news, trending stories, and more.

It currently claims to have more than 26,000 subscribers.

3. Marty’s Ƀent

This is a unique, but awesome, newsletter.

Rather than bombard you with tons of further reading, Marty puts together a short and sweet newsletter (<5 minutes) every weekday which discusses something Bitcoin (BTC) or cryptocurrency-related that he’s found interesting in the last 24 hours.

Marty’s been sending out his newsletter since June 2017. At the time of writing, he’s up to issue #942 and has more than 2,100 subscribers.

Marty’s Ƀent isn’t for everyone, especially as he’s just a little bit of Bitcoin (BTC) maximalist. If you’re sensitive to criticism of your favourite shitcoin, then stay away. For everyone else, be sure to subscribe to his thought-provoking and no-nonsense commentary on the world of Bitcoin (BTC) and cryptocurrency.

Side note: Marty also hosts a new podcast called ‘Tales from the Crypt’. Give that a shot too!

Information

4. The Pomp Letter

The Pomp Letter is a newsletter produced by Anthony Pompliano (‘Pomp’), who is an American entrepreneur and investor. He’s currently a co-founder and partner at Morgan Creek Digital, which is one of the world’s largest digital asset managers.

The newsletter is all about business, technology, finance, and Bitcoin (BTC). It includes some fantastic analysis and gives you the rundown on news that’s caught his attention. It’s been going since 2018 and now has more than 50,000 subscribers!

It’s published every weekday, but you’ll only get Monday’s issue for free. You’ll have to upgrade to a paid subscription to get every issue. This costs $10 per month, or $50 per year if you pay it all upfront.

If you do upgrade, you’ll also get access to subscriber-only ‘The Pomp Podcast’ episodes.

It’s 100% worth checking out – even if you don’t upgrade to a premium subscription.

Other Cryptocurrency Newsletters

Even though they didn’t make my top list, there are some other well-recommended newsletters that you might like:

Discontinued Cryptocurrency Newsletters

Token Economy

Token Economy

Best Cryptocurrency Newsletters - Token Economy Header

Token Economy was a popular newsletter which was published every 2 weeks (on a Tuesday). They’d been going since June 2017 and had more than 20,000 subscribers.

In their own words, Token Economy provided readers with:

“Opinionated thoughts on the most interesting products and ideas in cryptocurrencies, blockchains, dapps, DAOs & the growing token economy.”

It was pretty awesome. It recapped important industry news and linked to interesting articles. They eventually cut back to just talking about new projects, but then sadly stopped sending out emails altogether.

Information

Chain Letter

Chain Letter

Chain Letter is a great newsletter published by MIT Technology Review which slid into your inbox every Thursday. They started sending out emails in November 2017.

It covered what was new in the world of blockchain, and sometimes delved into a concept or idea in more depth. It only took about 5 minutes to read each issue too.

Although there was some overlap, I found that Chain Letter complimented my other cryptocurrency newsletter subscriptions. Unfortunately, they stopped sending this newsletter in 2019.

Information

Long Reads Sunday

Long Reads Sunday

Long Reads Sunday is a weekly newsletter that was, unsurprisingly, published on a Sunday.

In each issue, Nathaniel Whitemore concisely summarised the week’s top cryptocurrency news in a bullet point list and then dived into other topics in more depth.

Nathaniel started this off in 2018, but it looks like he stopped publishing it around the middle of 2020. It quickly became one of my favourite newsletters, so it’s a shame this isn’t around anymore.

Side note: Nathaniel also hosts a podcast called ‘The Breakdown’. You can find it here or in most popular podcast managers.

Information

Token Daily

Token Daily

Token Daily example 'Tweet of the Day'

Although it’s called Token Daily, this newsletter was usually only published once a week. However, there have been no new issues since October 2020.

Given the high signal-to-noise ratio in the cryptocurrency world, it cut out all the bullshit (which was a refreshing change).

Their newsletter took about 1-2 minutes to read and usually covered the following:

  • Some recent news, with a short overview for each.
  • Their favourite crypto-related article(s) of the week.
  • Prominent launches/updates in the crypto-space.
  • Sometimes more (e.g. ‘Thought of the Day’ and ‘Question of the Day’).

    • Thanks, Thang!

      This is one I like too and it’s already on the list! It was acquired and is now known as “CoinSnacks”.

  1. Hey Dean, I do think you’ve left out the most engaging and interactive crypto newsletter in the space! CoinMarketCap’s newsletter are quite fun, and I think they have over 30K readers. Check them out, and you’ll see what I mean by interactive. All this done via email too. They should definitely be on your updated list.
