The 100 Best Crypto Twitter Accounts to Follow

twitter bitcoin ethereum

Crypto twitter is one of the most dynamic and engaging online communities you can find. It’s full of enlightening discussions of (possibly) the most important economic breakthrough of the 21st century. It’s also simultaneously filled with frauds, shills, and shitposters. Searching for signal in this noise can be tough, but if you’re willing to put in the time you can build a great list of the best crypto Twitter accounts to follow.

Not willing to put in that time? We’ve got you covered with our comprehensive list of 100+ essential crypto accounts on Twitter that you should be following:

The OGs

These are all accounts that have been active since long before the 2017 crypto bubble. These people have already made their fortune and it comes through in their tweets. Often accused of being “lucky” despite the fact that they were smart enough to trade from 2014-2015 when everyone else thought crypto was dead. Priceless wisdom to be had by following them, but they won’t make it easy for you to find. All funny, some with darker humor than others.

Crypto Cobain

The founder of Crypto Twitter.

The Devs

All of the accounts listed here have experience maintaining the actual code that drives some of the world’s most popular cryptocurrencies. Good resources for filtering out the BS that is spouted by much of crypto twitter. Will be the first to call out dumb ideas that aren’t technically feasible.

Developer of Viacoin, crypto twitter’s unofficial favorite coin. Caused a month-long bull-run by fulfilling a crypto twitter prophecy.

Original developer behind Litecoin, one of the earliest and most popular “altcoins” to Bitcoin.

We don’t consider Ripple (XRP) to be a legitimate cryptocurrency, but learning about it is essential to understanding the community. Schwartz is the CTO at Ripple.

Dishonorable Mention:

Craig Wright

Crypto twitter’s most hated…Faketoshi. Insane person. Claims he is Satoshi Nakamoto while offering no credible evidence. Is currently working on one of the failed Bitcoin Cash forks. Follow for unintentional humor and nothing more. Will ban you if you make fun of him.

The Content Creators

There’s no shortage of crypto-related content in the form of videos, articles, podcasts, and more. A lot of it is trash. These accounts are reliable sources for high-quality content that will actually help you learn.

The Best Crypto Traders

A lot of people are into cryptocurrencies because they want to get rich. These guys are doing it better than most. Plenty of posts on technical price analysis of different coins and they are usually open to answering questions (if you ask nicely). Remember though, this is not investment advice. Most of these people have cartoon characters for AVIs. Imagine explaining to your wife that you lost the kid’s college fund because you made your investment decisions based on a cartoon Jalapeno from Twitter.

Borrow their knowledge, these people are smart. But make your own decisions.

All of the useful technical analysis you need to succeed in the cryptocurrency space is available for free if you are willing to hunt for it. Don’t get scammed.

The Feds

Chris Giancarlo

Chairman of the United States Commodity Futures Trading Commission. The highest ranking U.S. Government official to openly support cryptocurrencies.

The Zealots

Most of Crypto Twitter approaches the industry with at least a slight bit of skepticism. They prepare themselves, to varying degrees, for the possibility that this whole economic experiment is a waste of time. The following accounts do not:

Your source for pure, unadulterated, crypto market hopium.

pomp pumps crypto

Naval

Most likely an AI programmed to tell blockchain believers everything they want to hear about their favorite technology.

Parabolic Trav

“Your Bitcoin #HODL spirit guide for the journey to $100,000 and beyond”. The most over-the-top optimistic crypto twitter account. Stopped tweeting for most of the 2018 bear market, so when he starts tweeting a lot….you should probably sell.

Jameson Lopp

A living example of the cypherpunk ideals at the roots of Bitcoin.

the lopp rules

Bitcoin Bunnies

Exactly what you think it is.

The Real MVPs

These accounts don’t fall into any neat category, but all deserve a follow if you want to diversify your crypto twitter feed. Good mix of experienced users and newer accounts with high-quality, informative content. Plenty of controversial food takes and offensive political commentary as well.

The Normal People Pulled Into Crypto

It’s always good to make sure you’re balancing out your Twitter feed. These accounts aren’t 100% committed to posting about cryptocurrencies, but they do dabble. They’ll help you gain the perspective of a knowledgeable outsider.

Elon Musk

Probably owns 5% of the crypto supply but can’t tweet about it directly because the SEC sucks. So he sends clues like this:

elon crypto

John Bollinger

Legendary technical analyst and trader. Has an indicator named after him (Bollinger Bands). Super accessible and willing to discuss ideas with followers.

Another veteran trader of traditional markets whose attention has been captured by cryptocurrencies.
