Crypto’s Meta Brain – Twitter

 Crypto’s Meta Brain – Twitter

Like it or loathe it Twitter is the place where the narrative of cryptoverse lives and breathes. Projects make announcements through it, adherents of cryptos battle it out and each and at some point, every idea underpinning blockchain receives an elegantly crafted Tweetstorm and equally lovingly crafted counter-argument. Less tech-focused than Reddit and also somewhat more civilized; Twitter is simply put, crypto’s ‘Meta Brain’.

Of course, like any other community platform, there’s a sea of dross and foolishness to wade through to find those whose insights you might benefit from.   Buy this, sell that, trade this, DM for the next great thing, BCash whatever to the moon and on and on the rubbish flows. However, with a bit of net trawling and a lot of time, it is possible to build a highly valuable database of folks to follow.

Over time I’ve curated a list that attempts to balance the need for raw information with the wish to be stimulated, informed and challenged. Hence some of the people in my Twitter feed express opinions that I disagree with but which nonetheless help me remain engaged, informed and learning.

I follow over 100 projects but other than promo material and announcements I rarely find much to linger on. Far more interesting are the characters and personalities fleshing out an incredibly broad range of crypto concepts and ideas. This multi-discipline smorgasbord of competing and complimentary narratives is truly fascinating.
