A brief guide to Crypto Twitter

...and the top 5 accounts you should be following

Feb 12, 2021

The subject of many memes, inside jokes and drama; those looking to keep abreast of the never ending torrent of crypto news tend to flock to Crypto Twitter (or 'CT').

Whether or not you support a centralized platform having so much importance in a decentralized world, Twitter's widespread adoption means that you can easily take part in the discussion, and chat with thought leaders and protocol builders from all over the world.

So, without further ado, here is a short (and non-exhaustive) list of some of the best Crypto and DeFi Twitter accounts you should be following:

The Top 5 DeFi Twitter accounts to follow

vitalik.eth

https://twitter.com/VitalikButerin

Perhaps this should go without saying, but Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin is our first pick here.

Lately he has committed to tweeting more long-form tweets as opposed to regular updates - but if you want to keep informed on what's happening in Ethereum moving forwards, this is the account to follow.

Antiprosynthesis.eth

https://twitter.com/antiprosynth

The ultimate Ethereum news aggregator; Antiprosynth's work picking out the most relevant crypto tweets from the noise is valuable enough that it has even raised a sizeable Gitcoin grant from the community.

Anthony Sassano | sassal.eth

https://twitter.com/sassal0x

With a host of advisory and founder roles to his name, it's an understatement to say that Sassal is well-versed in crypto. Whether it's retweets on choice DeFi updates, market sentiment or memes, Sassal has the content that keeps us coming back.

Ryan Sean Adams - rsa.eth

https://twitter.com/RyanSAdams

Founder of the DeFi Newsletter Bankless, RSA's combination of unabashed DeFi-maximalism and level-headed opinions make him another star pick for our lineup.

Eric.eth

https://twitter.com/econoar

Co-author of the EIP-1559 proposal, and co-founder of Ethhub, we chose Eric because of his focus on delivering updates on key Ethereum milestones and development progress. However he regularly tweets about DeFi and the wider ecosystem as well.

As you might have noticed by now, it's a common practice in DeFi twitter to use an ENS (similar to a domain name, but for Ethereum) as your twitter handle. This is usually a good way of identifying if someone is pro-Ethereum.


And a whole lot more...

To make it easier, we have condensed this entire section into a handy Twitter List, which you can follow.
