Three top tips to stay updated in blockchain: A beginner’s guide

In an industry which is built on the fast-paced, it can be difficult at times to keep up with what, where and why things are happening.

Despite the fact that we literally have the news at our fingertips, it’s not always obvious what might be worth paying attention to, or what might be the result of fear, uncertainty, and doubt (FUD). Furthermore, with how quickly things are moving along, we might not be able to keep up with the stories, the jargon, and the banter.

In this, we will be exploring the best and most accurate ways of staying up to date with any blockchain happenings (and while we will try our best not to completely self-advertise, we can’t promise anything).

Straight from the horse’s mouth

As one becomes more involved in the blockchain, one becomes more aware of the ‘thought leaders’ that are in the cryptocurrency space, the speakers that are worth listening, and the opinions that are valuable.

Those who have been in the field for long, and have been involved in long-term projects have become thought leaders, as well as leaders in verified and reputable blockchain companies. Often, they have blog posts or Twitter accounts in order to keep users updated with their thoughts.

Other Twitter users worth a follow are those who endeavor to offer reliable advice with objective content.
