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:

100 Best Crypto Twitter Accounts

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.

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

53. Chris Giancarlo
