Telegram is one of the safest ways of messaging in 2018. It supports end-to-end encryption, which ensures that third parties have no chance of getting access to users’ messages. Today the platform has over 200 million users, and over 15 billion messages delivered daily.

Probably, encryption and safety are the reasons why the majority of the people involved in cryptocurrency use Telegram for personal and business purposes. There are tons of Telegram-based exchanging bots, built-in wallets and other instruments for managing digital coins. So, it is no wonder that almost every crypto-related mass media has its channel on Telegram. Here are 10 of the most remarkable and readable Telegram groups and channels related to cryptocurrency.


(These channels obviously have different styles, audiences, and types of content. Some of them are totally incomparable, so I cannot just put them in a list from good ones to the best ones. In order to avoid comparing incomparable things, the channels are separated depending on their topics.)

U.Today

U.Today has a special place in this top. First, you will certainly like it, if you are reading this website. Besides, the channel can hardly be attributed to any of the topics below. It is not oriented to trading or some special technical researches. The style of articles here is quite popular, so it will be interesting for a wide audience.
Unlike most of news channels, U.Today makes diversified publications for Telegram. The content is related to the website, but it is still independent. You can get the most remarkable news and statistics from Telegram, and then go to the website for full information. It is important to note, because other channels often just post links in Telegram, without any special content.

Trading channels

This type of groups and channels should be considered an instrument for crypto traders. Here you can find some special information about tendencies in the market, statistics and trading tools. This content is not really intended for a wide audience, but it is quite helpful for trading.

Crypto Charters

This channel is one of the most readable for traders. Authors create content in an easy-to-understand form and often with a bit of humor. That is why it is a good option if you are slightly familiar with trading and want to understand it more deeply. However, it requires knowing the basics of exchanging technologies to understand some publications correctly.

A major part of publications in this channel is related to Bitcoin. Authors often talk about BTC course and perspectives, which makes the channel even more helpful for Bitcoin-traders.

Cache Charts

Cache Charts is a less technical channel. Authors are experienced traders. They often provide easy explanations of the tendencies in the market and share some useful trading tools. The content is easy to perceive and it does not require knowing special technical terms. In addition, here you can find some useful advice on how to trade if you are not skilled enough to analyze the market by yourself.

What makes the channel less attractive is that it is not free now. The price of joining is 0.01 BTC per month. I am not saying whether it is worth it or not, but you can research the archive of the channel if you are thinking about it.

UK Crypto Premium

This channel is devoted to the technical analysis of the market and distinct coins. Here you can find a lot of useful information that helps to create an actual market strategy and optimize your crypto portfolio. Authors always keep track of the latest news and provide some interesting data for traders. In addition, sometimes news and crypto-related articles diversify the content.

UK Crypto Premium’s content is not really difficult to understand. It will be helpful even for beginners. Although some terms may be unfamiliar, the style of the content is quite popular and easy to comprehend.

News channels

Here I decided to recommend some crypto channels that are not focused on a particular coin or crypto-exchange. Whatever you are interested in, it is important to know about big events, updates and releases. Here are some popular channels that create news publications about the most important things in the crypto community.

CoinDesk

CoinDesk is probably the most popular crypto-media for English speakers. It is a well-known website where almost all types of crypto-related content are published, including:

  • News

  • Guides

  • Researches

  • Statistics

  • Technical reviews

  • Informational articles etc.

They have a Telegram channel, and it is mostly focused on news. CoinDesk has to be on this list because it is one of the well-trusted media, where you can find actual news and research.

It is important to note that the admins do not publish original content in the CoinDesk Telegram channel. They just take articles and news from the site. However, the instant view feature in Telegram allows users to conveniently read the articles in the app.

Cointelegraph

Cointelegraph is another popular crypto-news media. They have a more developed channel with 93k subscribers on Telegram, but the style of publications is the same as that of CoinDesk – it is just articles from the web site. They create about 10-15 posts on Telegram per day. One additional feature of Cointelegraph is that it has a Telegram channel for Spanish speakers.

As for topics, the majority of publications is about the latest events in the crypto-industry. Sometimes the admins publish analytical research, so you can get independent, statistical information about the state of the market. In addition, they have a YouTube channel with well-made animation videos about blockchain technologies. This will help you understand the main concepts of blockchain if you are a beginner in crypto-industry.

News Bitcoin.com

I suppose the name of the channel can say a lot about its topic and type of content. It is one of the best channels for those who are actively interested in bitcoin, including traders, holders and others. Actually, even if you prefer altcoins, you cannot refuse that bitcoin has a great infliction on the industry, so sometimes it is interesting to read about how it is developed.

The channel has 70,000 subscribers and works the same way as CoinDesk and Cointelegraph. Users can read some news and research on Telegram, and guides, statistics, and informational articles are available on the website. What makes the site different is that it was founded by Roger Ver, one of the people who was developing Bitcoin in the first years of its existing. Actually, the domain bitcoin.com speaks for itself.

Bots

Bots are a very special type of Telegram’s initial structure. They function as a built-in application that can serve a lot of purposes. Commonly, the algorithm of working with a bot is very simple: the user sends a command and gets a reply. Some bots use menus to work faster and improve the overall user experience.

I am not talking about bots for trading, sending and keeping cryptocurrency. You should be very careful using them because they are often a scam. The bots listed below are just a convenient and fast way to get much-needed information and data from different websites.

BitcoinPriceAnalyticsBot

This is an indispensable tool for Bitcoin-traders and holders. The bot does simple work: it is always monitoring Bitcoin’s actual price for you. We know that BTC’s course is quite volatile and unpredictable. It may go down or up 3-5% in one day. If you do not want to check it every hour, BitcoinPriceAnalyticsBot will be very helpful. It allows users to set upper and lower BTC prices, and when the course hits any of these points, the bot will send a notification. It is a good instrument to help you remain calm about Bitcoin’s price course without checking it too often.

CoinMarketCap

CoinMarketCap is a website where you can find statistical information about almost all cryptocurrencies. Here you will find available not only the current price, but also a history of developing of a course, capitalization and trading volume for every coin. The site also contains a lot of information about exchanges, total market capitalization, the biggest events and so on.

The bot functionality is not so wide. Actually, this is not an official bot, but rather it is just made with the API that CoinMarketCap provides to developers. The bot has the following features:

  • Monitoring the prices of the top 10 cryptocurrencies

  • Sending notifications about changes in the price

  • Monitoring the total capitalization of the market

  • Viewing a history of the price of chosen coin for the last 7 days

API is a developer’s special tool that allows third parties to take some data from the website. So, the information provided by the bot is the same that you can find in CoinMarketCap.

ICO

It is not a secret that the first investors of any blockchain project sometimes get incredible revenue. Nevertheless, it is a great risk, because no one can say for sure if the project will be successful. Here are some channels for those who like to try their luck investing in ICOs.

ICO Drops

Probably the most well trusted ICO channel. It has about 40k subscribers. Admins publish news about the most remarkable ICOs and Airdrops almost every day. Actually, ICO Drops is a popular website where you can find tons of information and statistics about new blockchain projects. However, if you do not have time to research the site, the telegram channel is a good option.

ICO Countdown

Another popular group devoted to upcoming ICOs. It is a chat where users can discuss some interesting projects. This might be very informative because you can share your opinion with other investors and help someone make the right decision (or maybe someone will help you with that).

Question of the Day: Can Stablecoins Accelerate Cryptocurrency Adoption?

    Stablecoins show hardly any volatility compared to Bitcoin and altcoins, many are hoping that they will be able to bridge new crypto economy and regular fiat money


Question of the Day: Can Stablecoins Accelerate Cryptocurrency Adoption?

Bitcoin, the father cryptocurrency, emerged in hope that it will remove all intermediaries in electronic commerce that cut off their share of payments. BTC was perceived as a P2P way to replace fiat cash in an electronic format, which would enable one party to pay another without any financial institution or payment platform which would demand its share of a transaction as a reward for its services.

What is wrong with Bitcoin

For quite a while Bitcoin was performing the way the crypto community expected. But the situation changed later – BTC rate became weaker, thus bringing down its financial and economic reliability, when it gets to be used as a regular means of payment.


You cannot have a currency that would cost like a British castle today, a gram of gold – tomorrow and a pack of French fries the day after.

At that point practical fintech minds came up with an idea of creating something which would become a breakthrough in the universe of crypto – a so-called stablecoin.

Will stablecoins solve the volatility problem?

Technically, stablecoins are protected from the volatility roller-coaster that Bitcoin and other cryptos love to ride. They are programmed to keep their prices stable and investors now are largely attracted to this new type of digital assets.

Stablecoin does not show any volatility in its monetary value, since it has a fixed connection to an asset it is pegged to. The major goal of using stablecoins is taking the best from decentralized crypto coins and combining it with a constant value. Thanks to it, stablecoins can be used as a reliable means of trade.

Asset-pegged stablecoins

Asset-backed ones get their value from an asset as can be understood from the name. An asset provides the necessary value to a coin, as well as the necessary legitimacy.

A great example of an asset-pegged stablecoin is Tether (USDT). In spite of a series of scandals at the end of last year, it remains the most popular stablecoin in the crypto market.

Recently, it has partnered with the Tron Foundation to launch a Tron-based stablecoin.

Other examples are TrueUSD (TUSD), USD Coin (USDC), the Gemini Dollar (GUSD), and the Paxos Standard (PAX). They are all pegged to the USD.

Crypto-backed stablecoins

Some digital coins work in a similar way to fiat-backed ones, however, they are pegged to collateral crypto. That means that crypto assets that ensure the value of such stablecoins are stored in a wallet similar to escrow.

A good example of a crypto-pegged token is Maker, which is ranked 16 on CMC.

Algorithmic stablecoins

Even though, stablecoin can be interesting at first thought but the way they are built goes against the principle of decentralization that crypto coins have as a foundation. Thus, many crypto fans and evangelists are positive that stablecoins must be linked towards not a centralized asset but a computer algorithm which takes value from a balance between supply and demand.

Basis is now considered the most promising algorithmic stablecoin of all.

Can stablecoin ensure smooth future for the crypto industry?

The primary goal of all crypto assets was and remains to come up with virtual asset that would be liquid enough and not vulnerable to market volatility. From this point of view, stablecoins are a dream of all crypto fans and evangelists of a decentralized economy.

Apart from the potential to conduct crypto transactions smoothly, experts believe it can bridge the two worlds – fiat and crypto, bringing them a mutually beneficial coexistence. However, that may take time.
