10. World Crypto Network YouTube channel

Coming in at number ten on our list is World Crypto Network, a very prolific channel that often puts out more than one video a day.

These guys do a lot of long-form content, featuring broad discussions that cover the industry, the technology, and the markets that make up this wonderful world of cryptocurrency.

It’s sometimes a relatively political channel also, which is fine so long as you’re aware of their biases going into the videos.

Ultimately, if you’re looking to learn about the philosophy of cryptocurrency and about what many of its biggest proponents believe, then World Crypto Network is one of the best places for you to check out.

Also: if you want a huge library of long-form looks at the world of crypto that you can put on in the background while you work or do chores, then this is the channel for you.

9. Coin Mastery YouTube channel

Coin Mastery’s name is a big promise in and of itself. And we should make it clear: by mastery of coins, he means mastery of the market for coins.

This is a channel for trading and traders, and the face of the channel is a guy named Carter who trades across a number of traditional markets as well as cryptocurrency.

But he definitely thinks cryptocurrency is something special—the channel description declares crypto to be “the greatest financial revolution in history”.

His videos feature technical analysis and fundamental analysis and is very well-reasoned, and Carter is a man who comes across as trustworthy, and it seems he has all the understanding of market fundamentals necessary for a successful career in trading.

He’s neither an optimist nor a pessimist: he just really believes in the value proposition of blockchain technology and cryptocurrency.

8. Boxmining YouTube channel

The name Boxmining sounds like it belongs on a channel that is complicated, hard to follow, and all about the seemingly-inaccessible process of mining Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

But that’s not the case at all.

Boxmining is actually a really good daily crypto channel, responding to articles, trends, and business moves within the cryptocurrency space.

He’s a really optimistic, community-focused creator who provides an excellent set of viewpoints on the necessity of the blockchain and cryptocurrency now and in the future.

Subscribing for daily videos is the best way to consume his content, but there are, of course, some great videos to get started with.

7. Crypto Investor YouTube channel

Crypto Investor has some of the strongest technical analysis of any cryptocurrency YouTube channel. If crypto investing or trading cryptocurrency is your thing, then this channel will resonate well.

He’s also a very cynical voice: he always refers to Bitcoin as a bubble, no matter what price it’s trading at.

This can be useful, although watching Crypto Investor is sometimes like listening to your cynical uncle talk about how the end of the world is coming, and that we should all be buying gold and burying it in the yard.

Grumpiness aside, Crypto Investor is smart. His points are rational and well-communicated, and you can learn a lot about reading market trends from his analyses and arguments.

He’s a useful one to watch when you’re feeling overconfident and need a reality check. Just don’t only watch him—or you might begin to get a little grumpy.

6. DataDash YouTube channel

DataDash is one of the most subscribed-to cryptocurrency YouTube channels, and for good reason: his content is accessible, and has high production values.

Nick, the host, is a fantastic analyst and for the most part talks about cryptocurrency markets in a balanced, fair way.

He doesn’t rely too much on technical analysis and is really understanding of the reasons people trade how they trade.

He talks a lot about how the market has changed, especially in the aftermath of 2017’s mania, and he provides some of the most sensible all-around advice you can find on YouTube.

5. Crypto Daily YouTube channel

This one is what it says on the can: it’s crypto, (almost) daily. And it’s just about the best balance of humour, smarts, and timeliness there is out there on crypto YouTube.

He’s recently updated his production value after a short hiatus, and his content is looking great.

It’s awesome to log onto his channel every day and get something new, whether it be a macroeconomic analysis or a hilarious parody video (or sometimes both in one).

So even though Crypto Daily comes in right in the middle of this list, he’s one of the most essential subscriptions to make on YouTube if you want to stay on top of cryptocurrency news and trends.

4. Doug Polk Crypto YouTube channel 

doug polk youtube channel

Doug Polk is one of the most unique crypto commentators out there—his background is in professional poker, and he often seems more interested in making an entertaining video than providing in-depth analysis.

Which is fine with us, because the man really is funny. In a video from June 2018 titled Bitcoin Is Crashing (And That’s A GOOD THING), Polk reminds us not to worry because, despite everything, “one bitcoin is still equal to one bitcoin”.

That said, he’s not without value beyond his humour.

His videos about the Bitconnect scam, DataDash’s ICO promotion, and Verge are incisive, and it is very, very entertaining to watch Doug call people out on their nonsense.

The one downside of Doug Polk Crypto is that he’s not regular with his content—he makes more videos when the market is bullish and can be silent for months at a time.

We’ve mentioned Ivan before on this site, and that’s for good reason: he’s a fantastic voice in the crypto space on YouTube. He is what we'd call a crypto influencer.

Ivan is a Blockchain developer who puts out a video every day covering crypto news and opinions that are coursing through the cryptocurrency and blockchain industry.

Ever since he’s started streaming his content live, he’s also put aside time to answer people’s questions of the day, and the quality of his off-the-cuff answers prove that he’s a person worth trusting.

Top 5 Best Bitcoin Books You Must Read In 2019

Reading books may feel antiquated when it comes to decentralisation and blockchain—after all, these are digital, post-paper terms which are laying the foundation for a future in which books are delivered exclusively from the cloud, or read primarily in a pre-condensed form. But don’t be fooled: to this day books and other long-form texts are still the best way to gain a nuanced understanding of any given topic. Yes, it’s a bit more of a time investment than Twitter, but as with cryptocurrency whitepapers, the time invested yields dividends in knowledge that, if utilised correctly, can in turn yield good amounts of capital.

Trading Crypto: Centralised Exchanges vs. Decentralised Exchanges

Most people involved in the cryptocurrency space who aren’t motivated purely by monetary gain will likely find themselves at some point saying something like this: “One thing I really like about cryptocurrency is that it’s decentralised, and that the currency isn’t owned or controlled by a bank or state.”

With all that in mind, this article will teach you to understand the key differences, successes, and failings of both centralised and decentralised crypto exchanges.

How our Bitcoin Gift Card works

What is a Bitcoin Gift Card?

A Bitcoin Gift Card is the perfect way for the newcomer to get their first Bitcoin. It comes with a paper wallet and simple instructions to set up a software wallet so that you can transact with Bitcoin over the internet. Bitcoin Gift Cards are available in AU$25, $50, $100 and $500 denominations.

Who should buy a Bitcoin Gift Card?

Anyone new to Bitcoin will find no easier way to get their first Bitcoin.

They can be gifted by an existing cryptocurrency enthusiast, or bought by anyone wanting to get involved for the first time themselves.

How can I pay for my Bitcoin Gift Card?

You can pay with either cryptocurrency through our payment gateway, or you can use Australian Dollars through our POLI Pay facility.

Can I use a Bitcoin Gift Card to top up an existing software wallet?

Yes. When you receive your additional Bitcoin Gift Card, you can simply import the "Secret" wallet identifier from your Bitcoin Gift Card into your existing software wallet. This will move your Bitcoin from your Bitcoin Gift Card into your existing software wallet. 

What does my Bitcoin Gift Card include?

Your Bitcoin Deposit, wallet and key generation and network transfer.

How long does it take to receive my Bitcoin Gift Card?

Going through to checkout takes about 2 minutes. You won't find an easier process anywhere. Once you've placed your order, it can take between 10 and 60 minutes to receive your Bitcoin Gift Card depending on the speed of the Bitcoin network at time of purchase.

How our Flexi eGift Cards work

We have partnered with GiftPay, an aggregator of online deliverable eGift Cards in Australia.

Through our agreement with GiftPay, you are able to purchase a Flexi eGift Card from us, redeemable at a broad range of retailers in Australia.

Watch the Video to see how it works

What is a Flexi eGift Card?

A Flexi eGift Card is an electronic gift card that lets you choose where you'd like to shop! In the past if you were given a gift card for a particular shop but didn't want to buy anything from that shop, you were stuck. But now with a Flexi eGift Card, you get to choose at which shop you spend your gift. 

What's more, you may be able to split your Flexi eGift Card and spend it at different shops! For example, if you have a $30 Flexi eGift Card, you could choose to split it up into a $20 Myer eGift Card and a $10 iTunes eGift Card. 

Where can I spend it?

You can spend your eGift Card at a broad range of Australian retailers. For a full list of our retailers, click here. (page showing full list of retailer logos)

How do I redeem it?

Your Flexi eGift Card will be emailed to you. Click the link in the email to open your Flexi eGift Card.

Then convert your Flexi eGift Card into any combination of gift cards or vouchers up to the total available balance. How you redeem your chosen gift card depends on the card or voucher chosen.

Pay a BPay Bill

What Bills can I pay?

You can pay any bill that has the BPAY logo and Biller Code including credit cards.

Are there any payment limits?

Yes. You can pay a maximum of $1000 per transaction based on regulatory limits. You can however break up a bill into multiple $1000 tranches and enter the same biller and customer reference code.

How does the transaction work?

When you enter the amount you wish to pay, the BPAY biller code and your bill’s customer reference number, you will click through to our checkout.

At checkout, you will be asked to leave your details, which enables us to satisfy our legal requirements under the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Amendment Act 2017. This sounds ominous, but takes about 2 minutes.

When you proceed to payment, you will be shown the digital currency amount payable and the wallet address to send your digital currency to.

Once you have sent your digital currency to our payment gateway wallet, you will receive an email notifying you that your payment has been received. We then convert your digital currency to AUD and pay your BPAY bill on your behalf.

Are there any fees?

Yes. At checkout you will notice our 3% fee added to your bill amount. This is to help us manage the currency risk of a volatile digital currency market when converting to AUD for us to pay your bill. We use a third party payment gateway to enable the digital currency transaction. Our considerations when choosing a gateway was security, pricing (spread) and speed. You’ll note when at checkout (before proceeding to payment) that the price you receive on your digital currency is very competitive. Other digital currency BPAY facilitators charge up to 6% per transaction on the currency alone, which in our view is akin to highway robbery.
