Staying up-to-date about all things bitcoin can be quite challenging these days. Different communities exist all over the Internet, each of which aims to provide the latest news and insights to the masses. Cryptocurrency continues to baffle the mind of many people, here are some excellent starting points to become a part of the bitcoin community.
#5 BITCOIN ON GOOGLE+
When it comes to using social media for bitcoin news and information, a lot of people tend to overlook Google+. Although Google’s social network is far less popular than Facebook or LinkedIn, it has a vibrant bitcoin community. The largest cryptocurrency group on Google+ consists of several thousand members and continues to grow every single day.
#4 THE BITCOIN GROUPS ON FACEBOOK
It comes as no surprise Facebook is home to many bitcoin enthusiasts as well. Although it is not easy to find the best group, there are quite a few to choose from. Do keep in mind some of these groups may suffer from affiliate-oriented posts every now and then, although moderators do what they can to keep spam to a bare minimum.
One of the any cryptocurrency-related forums in existence today is called Cryptocointalk. Albeit it is less so popular than Bitcointalk, CCT is quite informative and contains quite a few educative threads. Moreover, there is an open discussion related to altcoins, which can be of use to particular cryptocurrency enthusiasts. Their news section is also worth checking out, as it features new content every day.
The go-to place for any bitcoin discussion is Bitcointalk, the infamous messaging board which is home to tens of those of enthusiasts. Ranging from news to technical discussions and mining support to altcoins, it is hard to think of any resource that can’t be found there. People interested in spending Bitcoin may want to check out the marketplace section, although one always needs to tread carefully when dealing with unknown people on the internet.
#1 /R/BITCOIN AND /R/BTC
Reddit is the front page of the Internet and has not one, but two major bitcoin communities. On the one hand, there is /r/Bitcoin, where most of the news, technical discussions and political debates can be found. Some discussions are not allowed though, such as talking about altcoins or highly controversial topics.
A result of this strict “regulation” of the primary bitcoin subreddit caused a second community to be created a few years ago. In the /r/BTC subreddit, there is a lot of talk about Bitcoin Unlimited and blockchain news. Do not be mistaken in thinking there is no strict rule in /r/BTC either, as political debates often turn into heated discussions rather quickly.
