This is an updated version of my first Trybe post which you can find here. Since then the number of YouTube channels I subscribe to has dropped to 25 (from over 50). I generally only check 2-3 video updates a day with a catch-up blitz over the weekend. I find that the more knowledge you yourself acquire about crypto the less most YouTubers really have to offer.
The following YouTubers are the ones that currently stand-out from the crowd.
A very useful place to get a wide-ranging daily update on crypto. Most episodes start with a generally hilarious crypto meme of some sort. The channel also offers a lot of other content such as industry interviews and project reviews. ‘Token Tank’ a shared live stream interview format is particularly informative. ‘Crypto Zombie’ often looks under the hood with a strong focus on clarifying key technical concepts in crypto.
General Crypto Updates and Analysis
Knowledgeable, broad-ranging updates on the market, tech and individual projects. Delivered in a calm, considered manner. Nugget is one of the 57 people CZ Binance follows (242k followers) and for good reason. Well worth diving into his back catalogue – full of useful tutorials, tech explanations and project overviews.
Colin Talks Crypto:
By far and away the best EOS focused channel. Colin puts together an EOS ‘Mega Update’ that is essential viewing for anyone invested or interested in EOS. These updates collect the significant events and developments that occurred in the EOS ecosystem from one update to the next. Though Colin is clearly a big supporter of EOS he has been a crypto enthusiast for years and this experience is on show in his analysis of EOS issues and initiatives.
Recent Trybe post: https://trybe.one/bitcoin-technical-analysis-price-drops-and-longs-stack/
Our very on technical analyst on Trybe. Quality, hype-free posts that approach the market in a measured and risk-aware manner. Workin2005 avoids unnecessary jargon but doesn’t over-simplify complex chart price points either. In a field overflowing with self-promoting, after the fact charlatans Workin2005 is a technical analyst always worth your time.
Another excellent source of quality TA with an anti-establishment bent. Alessio focuses on a wide range of markets. As a longtime participant in the market, he brings a lot of experience to the analysis of each chart and trend. Though he offers ‘private members’ content, there’s more than enough content freely available on his channel. I highly recommend you trawl through his back catalogue if you are new to TA.
Ivan on Tech
As a developer, Ivan demonstrates a keen understanding of the technical side of the market. The channel discusses notable news but also provides a daily breakdown of some programming area of crypto such as ‘What is Nimble Wimble’ for example. This is, therefore, an excellent place to stay both up to date and further your general understanding of the technology underlying blockchain and crypto.
Less active these days DataDash (Nicholas Merten) has 7 years of experience trading stocks, bonds, Forex, and cryptocurrencies. This rounded background is evident as DataDash examines the cryptocurrency market. His daily posts are informative, measured and calm. In a hype-filled space, this channel informs, educates and cautions those interested in the crypto space. Nicholas is in this for the long-haul and respects his audience. Time and again I have found his analysis of market fundamentals and current price action absolutely spot-on.
My only caveat would be the monthly picks. With over 300k subscribers, DataDash’s recommendations can move the market. If you agree with his analysis of a project, a buy order on a retracement is almost certainly going to be better than chasing the token/currency after a 10-20% move.
The Crypto Lark:
The Crypto Lark’s daily roundups are a great means of keeping up with market sentiment and recent developments. A true crypto enthusiast, the Lark is connected to what’s going on and what’s/who’s moving the market. His frequent interviews with project leads/developers are in-depth and informative.
However, please be aware that the Lark does do a lot of sponsored reviews. Personally, I rarely watch them unless I’ve already become interested in the project. This is key, never invest in a cryptocurrency or token based on a sponsored review.
Please let me know who I’ve missed. At some point, I’ll publish a list of every YouTuber on my subscription list with the rationale behind them being there. As always comments and critiques welcome.
