Top Crypto Podcasts of 2018

· December 30, 2018 · 12:00 am

In two days, 2018 will be at its end. Considering there’s nothing more we can really do about bitcoin’s price in that time (after all, Tom Lee’s many year-end predictions never came true), we might as well focus on the joy of crypto for a little while.

If you’re late to the crypto craze and want to get into it but just don’t know how, here are some of the top podcasts you can listen to that might have the information on cryptocurrencies you’re looking for.

Listening About the Benefits of Crypto

The first is Unchained. Hosted by Laura Shin, a former reporter with Forbes, the podcast features lengthy conversations with crypto startup executives and entrepreneurs in the blockchains pace. Some of the podcast’s previous guests include Changpeng Zhao, CEO of the crypto exchange Binance, and bitcoin developer Jimmy Song.

The amount of information it gives makes it a little more tailor-made for experienced crypto investors, but it’s a hub of knowledge that’s likely to get you going in the right direction if crypto has ever interested you.

Next, we have Off the Chain. This one also features a wide array of entrepreneurs discussing what’s happening in the blockchain and digital asset arenas, though most of the time, it’s a venue for them to speak ill of each other. Off the Chain has become something of a platform for entrepreneurs to call each other out on the allegedly shady tactics they employ while pitching their own products. Past speakers include founder of Abra Bill Barhydt and Murad Mahmudov, an established cryptocurrency analyst.

Third is Unconfirmed, also hosted by Laura Shin. This one, however, deals less with specific topics and rather just lets the speakers speak. Here, you can listen to some of the world’s leading blockchain industry members deliver their insights as to what they think the future of crypto holds for long-term investors. Past guests include Jackson Palmer, creator of Dogecoin, and Cornell University professor Emin Gun Sirer.

A Few More Examples

Steal This Show is not primarily centered on blockchain topics, but when it moves in this direction, it can provide top-level information to its listeners. The podcast is hosted by activist and filmmaker Jamie King, and discusses anything from the peer-to-peer (p2p) marketplace to BitTorrent. The show has also discussed common worries regarding blockchain technology.

Last is Magical Crypto Friends, designed for “bitcoin maximalists.” The podcast discusses topics ranging from regulation and decentralization to bitcoin’s changes over the past ten years. It’s also a joint hosting job between Blockstream CSO Samson Mow, Litecoin creator Charlie Lee and Monero lead Riccardo Spagni.
