The blockchain and crypto space can be quite intimidating for anyone trying to find their way for the first time. Granted, most people want to get straight to the basics of crypto trading, selling, and buying.
The crypto and blockchain space was intriguing from the start. From Bitcoin’s enigmatic creator to the 2017 boom that turned crypto traders/investors into overnight millionaires as well as the crypto market becoming the most traded in 2019.
Blockchain, the technology powering cryptocurrencies, is now one of the most sought-after technologies across almost every industry. And how could we forget Bitcoin’s defying of doom predictions to be the most successful asset of the decade?
The industry is becoming a bigger force to be reckoned with every day. It’s natural to want to stay tuned to how events are unfolding in this space. Of course, there are numerous websites documenting everything, but if listening is more your speed, then podcasts are the way to go.
Here are some of the top-rated crypto and blockchain podcasts:
