Finding good information on crypto can be a challenge in the beginning. Soon people realize how social media is a form of a blessing and a course in this particular case. Yes, there are a lot of articles about news in crypto world but you can never be too sure if a certain ICO team payed for such a positive review or did the developers of a certain coin pay for a promotion. This is why people turn to various forums, social media pages and various other sites, where a vast number of people write somewhat unbiasedly. They don’t just write facts, they discuss, make you think and help you find red flags in various projects and maybe help save the state of your portfolio.

However, I’m very happy to be a part of a system where I use blockchain technology daily. I’m not talking about my trading, mining or taking part in ICOs and such, but about a regular day job.
