This rating of the best crypto blogs and news sites for 2020 is designed to help:

  • Marketers and PR managers, in order to assess the quality of resources to get better results
  • Journalists, editors, and owners of content platforms looking for quality news and to evaluate competitors
  • Investors and traders, to assess the quality of information sources to make better decisions

2019 turned out to be a truly saturated year for the blockchain and crypto industry.

We had the chance to observe many interesting events in the world of cryptocurrencies, technologies and the digital economy. Bitcoin managed to grow by almost 4 times, and then fall by 2. The giants Facebook and Telegram launched their own ambitious projects and came up against the barrier of US government regulators. At the same time, on the other side of the planet, China's president announced that blockchain is one of the most important areas for his country's development.

We learn about these and many other news items thanks to people who have dedicated themselves to gathering news in our difficult and controversial niche.

This is the rating of the top 145 news resources, one of the main areas of which is the coverage of events in the niche of blockchain and cryptocurrencies.

In order to determine the best I gathered a database of 145 news media resources and blogs, and then I found data about their DA, Alexa Rank, monthly visits, avg. visit durations, bounce rates, number of backlinks, and number of do-follow backlinks. Then I sorted the database by each parameter and assigned each site a number of points according to the formula "The number of points is equal to the number of sites plus one and minus its position."

For example, after sorting by DA, Cointelegraph took third place, meaning it gets 145 + 1 - 3 = 143 points. Crypto Potato took 51st place, which means it gets 145 + 1 - 51 = 95 points. Next, I added up all the points for each of the 7 parameters and got the final result.

You can check the raw data on this page or in the Google Docs spreadsheet, that is more convenient. I hope that such an attitude protected from subjectivity as much as possible.

News.bitcoin.com won first place with 978 points. It was interesting to compare it with https://cointelegraph.com/. On the one hand, CT has a higher Alexa Rank, with more than twice the audience and more backlinks. But news.bitcoin.com has less of a bounce rate and a twice higher avg. visit duration, which suggests that although they have a smaller audience, their readers interact with the content better and longer.

Below you will find the list of the best 10 crypto news resources, and then there will be the full list of the best 145 resources.
