Here at Token Metrics, we understand that our most valuable asset is you, our audience.
With your help, we have put together a guide to the Top 3 Crypto Social Media Accounts of 2020, as voted upon by you.
So sit back, relax, and enjoy the Moon Awards.
Why are Crypto Social Media Accounts Important?
Crypto is one of the most revolutionary and personality-filled industries in the world. Information is the most valuable currency in the crypto world, and the people who provide a bulk of this information tend to be the most interesting people in the crypto space.
In the crypto ecosystem, there are two primary forms of social media. The first is Twitter. Twitter is a fantastic source for quick, cutting-edge, and headline-oriented news in the crypto space.
Twitter is also a frequent source of major crypto news and announcements. This facet means that if you follow the right Twitter accounts, you will receive important crypto info right as it is announced.
The second crucial form of social media in crypto is YouTube. YouTube is just as important as Twitter as a source of information, and devout users argue that it is even more important than Twitter.
YouTube is the social media platform that is the face of crypto. Love it or hate it, YouTube and crypto influencers have used their platform to elevate cryptocurrencies to a new height. As a result, crypto and YouTube go together like peanut butter and jelly.
While this social media platform doesn’t always provide information as soon as it is announced, YouTube is an excellent source of detailed information and walkthroughs. The best content creators on YouTube provide in-depth information and walkthroughs that are beneficial to any crypto investor.
In crypto, social media is a potent tool that provides a massive benefit in the crypto space. While there are have been some harmful side-effects when it comes to social media in crypto, the benefits have far outweighed the negatives.
Crypto and social media are here to stay, and they will continue to build each other up. This mutual interest is what makes social media essential for any crypto investor.
It is important to note that to keep this edition of the Moon Awards free from any bias, we have removed Token Metrics and our affiliates from the pool of award winners despite garnering a significant portion of the votes.
Top 3 Twitter Accounts of 2020
1) CZ (Changpeng Zhao):
“Nobody wants to, but everyone has to listen to CZ. He’s the head of a crypto empire.”
– William Noble, Chief Investment Officer, Token Metrics
After narrowly edging our 2nd place honoree, CZ has arrived in 1st place as the top Twitter account in crypto. CZ is the CEO of the popular crypto exchange Binance. Binance was the top crypto exchange in the previous Moon Awards category Best Crypto Exchanges of 2020.
With over 630k followers, CZ has a massive platform on Twitter, which has been propelled by the success of Binance. After just 180 days post-launch, Binance became the largest crypto exchange in the world. Currently, Binance claims to have over 25% of the market share in trading volume.
Originally born in the Jiangsu province in China, CZ moved his family to Canada, where he gained Canadian citizenship. Eventually, CZ returned to China, where he currently resides.
Some have begun to refer to CZ as the “Bill Gates of the crypto industry” as he has pushed the crypto industry forward through his commentary on economic and social culture. CZ routinely fills massive venues with his talks on the importance of decentralization and the freedom of money.
CZ’s commentary on Twitter is always insightful, and reading through his tweets provides excellent insight not only on Binance but also on the crypto market.
2) Anthony Pompliano:
“Everyone wants to listen to Pomp. He the crypto Secretary of State.” – William Noble, Chief Investment Officer, Token Metrics
After being slightly edged out for the top spot on our crypto Twitter account list, Anthony “Pomp” Pompliano arrives in a strong 2nd place. Pomp is no stranger to the Moon Awards as he earned the top spot in our category of Best Crypto Newsletters and Best Crypto Podcasts of 2020.
Wherever you look in crypto, you can find Pomp’s fingerprint as he is a founder and partner at Morgan Creek Digital, author of a daily newsletter to institutional investors, and host of The Pomp Podcast.
Pomp is an absolute icon in crypto, and his Twitter account with over 400k followers always makes waves across the crypto space. Interestingly enough, Pomp held positions at Snapchat and Facebook, which is why he is social media savvy.
Famous for his “Week in Crypt” and “Long bitcoin, short bankers” tweets, Pomp’s Twitter has become popular enough to have him featured on CNBC and Bloomberg. You can always look to Pomp for up-to-date information and an optimistic take on the market.
Like any good Twitter account, though, Pomp’s Twitter isn’t just business. Pomp enjoys his fair share of fun through his use of memes and funny commentary on life.
3) Jack Dorsey:
“Jack Dorsey has done a lot for evangelizing bitcoin. He was instrumental in adding bitcoin to Square, and it’s now one of the biggest parts of Square’s business. In addition, he led the addition of bitcoin to Square’s corporate balance sheet. Jack is a true visionary, and the crypto space is proud to have him as one of its ambassadors.” – Ian Balina, Founder and CEO of Token Metrics
Arriving in 3rd place in the Best Crypto Twitter account vote is none other than Twitter Inc. co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey. Dorsey is also the founder and CEO of Square Inc., a financial payments company.
Square recently made waves in the crypto world in October when it announced via Twitter that the company purchased 4,709 bitcoins, which was equivalent to 1% of Square’s total assets at the time.
Arguably, Square was the fintech company that set off the wave of other financial institutions that followed in the institutional rush to cryptocurrencies.
With 5 million followers, Dorsey has used his massive platform to advocate for bitcoin and blockchain in general.
As the co-founder and CEO of Twitter, Dorsey uses Twitter as his primary form of public communication for personal and business-related announcements. As a result, Twitter Jack is well worth the follow for those who want to stay up to date on Dorsey’s companies, initiatives, and thoughts on blockchain’s future.
Top 3 Crypto YouTube Channels of 2020
1) Ivan on Tech:
“Ivan is well known for broadcasting live on YouTube every day for his “Good morning crypto” show; his consistency is second to none. He has also done a great job by helping the blockchain developer community grow with his Ivan on Tech Academy – Blockchain programming course.” – Diego Lara, Token Metrics Advisor
Arriving in 1st place as the top crypto YouTube account is the programmer and developer Ivan on Tech. Ivan is a Sweden-based YouTuber who has taken the crypto world by storm with over 270k subscribers on YouTube.
Ivan’s vision is to educate the crypto community and the masses on the blockchain field’s technical aspects. He believes in this vision so much that he dropped out of his computer master’s studies to pursue this goal.
This decision to leave his computer master’s study has turned out to be a great one for Ivan as he has made immense strides in achieving his goal. While Ivan is immensely popular on YouTube as a result of his live streams, he is also an international speaker on blockchain and an educator through his academy.
The Ivan on Tech Academy is a high-level blockchain programming course with an alumni network of over 11k people.
The Ivan on Tech channel is a fantastic YouTube channel that is well worth a follow as Ivan provides in-depth knowledge on the programming side of blockchain and smart commentary on the crypto market.
Ivan’s videos are a must-have for anyone interested in learning how to program or learn more about blockchain’s programming aspect.
“DataDash was one of the first Youtubers I watched when I was learning how to trade back in mid-2017. Coupling Ian’s data-driven approach to investing in crypto and Nick’s trading strategies in 2017 was a perfect recipe for my deep dive into the altcoin-sphere.”
– Sam Monac, Chief Operating Officer, Token Metrics
Arriving in 2nd place with 20% of the total vote is the crypto YouTube channel DataDash. Data Dash is the largest crypto YouTube channel in the space with over 360k subscribers.
The DataDash channel provides its viewers with a wealth of valuable information and interviews with influential crypto figures.
One thing that does stand out about the DataDash channel when comparing it to other crypto YouTube channels is that Merten regularly provides updates and insights on the stock market. Merten uses DataDash to explain how movements in this market impact crypto and what direction it is heading in, along with the traditional cryptocurrency information.
DataDash was created by Nichola Merten, a man who is no stranger to the Moon Awards. Merten is also the Founder and CEO of Digifox, which earned a spot as a rising star in our previous Moon Awards category of Best Crypto Wallets of 2020.
Along with balancing the demands of running the world’s largest crypto YouTube channel and Digifox, Merten is also an international speaker, thought leader, and analyst in the crypto space.
The DataDash channel has been around since July of 2017 and has relentlessly pursued the goal of providing content that is a one-stop-shop for things related to both cryptocurrencies and legacy financial markets.
3) Alessio Rastani:
“Alessio Rastani is a very underrated Crypto influencer because he rarely focuses on Altcoins. His strategy is to chart the legacy markets and establish a link to crypto and other markets. He made a great call during the March crash and has been fairly accurate on price movements so far. He is not the type that is over-optimistic but takes a practical and clear-headed approach to his analysis.” – Ugo Nduaguba, Token Metrics Advisor
Rounding out the group of honorees with just over 15% of the total vote is the crypto YouTube channel Alessio Rastani. The YouTube channel is hosted by financial expert Alessio Rastani and boasts over 250k subscribers.
Rastani has worked as an independent trader and researcher of the financial markets for over ten years. He has now become a widely followed commentator who releases countless videos, reports, and online educational material on the stock market, crypto, and forex.
The wealth of information provided by Rastani is beneficial to both new traders and seasoned veterans alike. Rastani packages a lot of this information through his company, Leading Trader.
Leading Trader serves as a platform that teaches traders various methods and strategies in simple step-by-step language. Leading Trader’s whole idea is to give users a clear understanding of even the most complex trading ideas.
The Alessio Rastani channel is one of YouTube’s best places to learn more about Elliot Wave theory and chart analysis.
