Best Cryptocurrency Newsletters

There’s a lot to keep up within 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 (free!) cryptocurrency newsletters which wade through the plethora of bullshit and deliver the best bits to your inbox.

In this post, I’ve pulled together 6 of the best cryptocurrency newsletters which I’m currently subscribed to:

The 6 Best Cryptocurrency Newsletters

1. Token Economy

An excellent weekly newsletter which recaps important news, interesting articles, and cool new projects.

My #1 favourite thing about Token Economy is the excellent summaries that accompany every link (see this example). It is opinionated at times, but their analysis and comments do seem well informed (and adds to the flavour of the newsletter).

They’ve been going since June 2017 and have approximately 20,000 subscribers (I’m not surprised).

Undoubtedly, Token Economy is my #1 favourite cryptocurrency newsletter. If you’re not subscribed already, you should be.

2. Token Daily

Token Daily example 'Tweet of the Day'

Token Daily (as the name might suggest) is a newsletter published every weekday.

I’ve become a big fan of this daily newsletter. Given the high signal-to-noise ratio in the cryptocurrency world, its simple format cuts out all the bullshit (which is a refreshing change).

Their newsletters take about 1-2 minutes to read and usually covers the following:

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

I would 100% recommend giving this newsletter a shot.

3. Marty’s Ƀent

This is a unique newsletter.

Rather than bombard you with tons of further reading, Marty puts together a short and sweet newsletter (<5min read) every weekday which discusses something Bitcoin or cryptocurrency related.

Marty’s been sending out his newsletter since June 2017. At the time of writing, he’s up to issue #253 and has approximately 2,100 subscribers (definitely deserves more).

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

Side note: Marty also hosts a new podcast called ‘Tales from the Crypt’.

Information

4. Chain Letter

A great newsletter published by MIT Technology Review which slides into your inbox every Tuesday and Thursday.

Tuesday editions cover what’s new in the world of blockchain and cryptocurrencies, while Thursday editions delve into a concept or idea in the blockchain/cryptocurrency world. You should be able to read this newsletter in about 5 minutes.

Chain Letter started this newsletter in November 2017 and (at the time of writing) are up to issue #63.

Although there’s some overlap, I’ve found that Chain Letter compliments my other cryptocurrency newsletter subscriptions quite well.

Information

5. The Daily Bit

The Daily Bit sends out newsletters every weekday. The format varies, but it usually includes:

  • 4-5 pieces of the latest news (summarised in 1-sentence).
  • Links to some interesting articles.
  • A deep dive into something (e.g., recent news).

Although it’s no longer my favourite daily cryptocurrency newsletter (previously #2 in this list), their commentary is still informed, accurate, and insightful.

They’ve been rolling out issues since December 2017. At the time of writing, they’re up to issue #202.

Information

6. CryptoWeekly

Published every Tuesday and Friday, CryptoWeekly curates and summarises the most important news and the best articles in the cryptocurrency world.

CryptoWeekly started sending out newsletters in December 2017 and (at the time of writing) have reached issue #55. They currently have over 6,000 subscribers.

This newsletter has a consistent and to-the-point style which I really appreciate (see here). It’s not fancy or complicated, just concise summarises so you can find the material you care about.

As I’m subscribed to other newsletters, I don’t get much value out of the Tuesday issue (it’s just the same news). However, I always read their Friday issue.

Side note: These are the same people behind CryptoList.
