Stacy Herbert's Steeming Hot Crypto List: 2018

in bitcoin •  7 months ago

So everyone is doing a top names of crypto list sort of thing. Having been around the block (pun intended), I think my list is better. There's a broad range of ideologies and specialties in my list. Half the people are warring with the other half and trolls will try to spread FUD on all of them but my belief is you have got to hear all the opinions to form your own. I'm definitely missing some amazing names but putting together this list was long enough to give me carpal tunnel syndrome, so feel free to add your thoughts and additions in the comments!

cryptolist.jpg

  1. @aantonop - I recommend anyone in the crypto space, especially those new to it, follow Andreas Antonopolous. He has boundless enthusiasm for bitcoin and infinite patience as an educator in the space - I've witnessed him explain for the millionth time to yet another newbie (going all the way back to 2013) all the basics of just exactly what is bitcoin. I support him via his patreon and I highly recommend it as he hosts Q&As just for members, depending on your level of support.

  2. Jameson Lopp is another great educator. His twitter bio gives a link to his site where you'll find an amazing list of resources: here it is for your convenience!

  3. Vitalik Buterin needs no introduction. His twitter feed is priceless. Max and I met him when he was, I believe, a teenager. He was working for Bitcoin Magazine.

  4. Adella Toulon - Adella is a lawyer and OG cypherpunk. She's been involved in the space since day one. She's not a very prolific tweeter, but she's a name worth knowing and when she does tweet, you'll want to make sure to see it.

  5. Charlie Lee is the founder of litecoin. He recently sold off his entire hodlings of his own baby and some say that's a bad sign, others say it's a great sign. Only the markets will decide. His twitter stream is filled with interesting insight.

  6. Max Keiser invented the virtual specialist technology and had the first convertible digital currency, the Hollywood dollar. He's a prolific tweeter of bitcoin gifs. He's the founder of Heisenberg Capital and the love of my life which is why I've tried to play fair to the others on this list and tuck him away in the middle of the list. :D

  7. Jon Matonis - Jon Matonis is actually the reason we are even involved in bitcoin. In early 2011, he sent me an email out of the blue to ask me if I had heard about this new thing called 'bitcoin' and that he'd like to appear on Keiser Report to discuss it. The rest is history. He is, of course, a key player in one civil war raging in the community relating to blocksize.

  8. Amir Taaki - If Jon Matonis first got us involved, it was Amir Taaki who not only invited us speak at the first ever bitcoin conference (in Prague in 2011), he helped us understand the mind-blowing divine possibilities of bitcoin.

  9. Adam Back - is an original cypherpunk and if you follow Lopp's excellent piece on their role in the development of bitcoin; you will understand the significance of Dr Back. Again, as founder and CEO of Blockstream, he is in the middle of one of the myriad civil wars raging in the bitcoin space; but he's OG so go follow and listen and then make your own decision.

  10. Saifedean Ammous is an Austrian economist that Max and I met in Beirut 7 or 8 years ago. He was a gold bug, now he's a bitcoin fanatic. He's written a new book about it. Check him out.

  11. Elizabeth Stark - co-founder of Lightning Labs. You'll be hearing a lot about her and her work in 2018.

  12. Jim Rickards - Jim is a frequent guest of Keiser Report. He hates is no fan of bitcoin and it's important, imo, to listen to such voices. He is a big believer in gold, rather than bitcoin, as a means of storing wealth and maintaining sovereignty. His background is as a lawyer, including as chief counsel for Long Term Capital Management, and managed that bankruptcy which almost took down the world's entire financial system. And, yes, he also works in intelligence. He engages with all (as long as they are polite).

  13. Crystal Rose - CEO and co-founder of Sensay. She's seriously smart and an amazing presence. She's one of the women of AI which is really moving deep and far into the blockchain space. Sensay recently had a successful ICO.

  14. Richard Heart is an entrepreneur turned bitcoin maximalist. He posts lots of interesting content on his Twitter feed and produces some really good interviews all about crypto. Actually really only about bitcoin, he hates shitcoins.

  15. Perianne Boring - Perianne is the founder of the Chamber of Digital Commerce and was an early advocate for bitcoin and blockchain. She tweets often and she speaks often at conferences all across the world. She's a tireless fighter and lobbyist for blockchain.

  16. @parabolictrav - if trading is your thing, this is the guy to follow. He tweets interesting bitcoin related content all day long. Great charts, great content.

  17. Jaromil was mining bitcoin on his laptop in 2009, or rather, Amir Taaki was mining bitcoin on Jaromil's laptop. Jaromil is a gifted speaker on the entire bitcoin, altcoin and blockchain topic because he's a top grade open source developer and a man of great integrity.

  18. Charles Hoskinson - a real live cryptographer on the list. He was part of the ethereum launch team and is now involved in Cardano. Another smart guy, lots of interesting info.

  19. Pierre Rochard - a bitcoin maximalist with a great Twitter feed.

  20. Trace Mayer is an early investor, we've known him forever. He's such a great speaker on the topic and is a super generous guy, like crazy generous.

  21. Roger Ver is a shit stirrer of the first order. Everyone hates him now but that's probably all the more reason to follow him. He's a very early bitcoin investor and has used his vast bitcoin fortune to help people like Ross Ulbricht.

  22. DashForceNews - the Dash community is quite amazing. I love their treasury model - it's the first DAO and it works.

  23. @fluffypony is crypto's top troll. He's with Monero. Lots of great content in his feed. He's been on Keiser Report and is an awesome guest.

  24. Charlie Shrem is bitcoin's first felon. He did time and now he's back as the elder statesman of the space. Max and I have known him since forever as he's an OG in the space. I married him and his wife Courtney this year in the middle of Hurricane Irma. It was wild.

  25. Bruce Fenton used to dress like a banker when we first met him at bitcoin conferences back in 2014 or so. Now he's a wild man of crypto knowledge. Like some sort of yoda meets Abby Hoffman singing Janis Joplin. A clear warning to all those who crosses over into bitcoin? Or deep knowledge from the peak of enlightenment?

  26. Roy Sebag & Josh Crumb founded BitGold which is now Goldmoney.com. They tweet often about bitcoin and are great thinkers and articulators on concepts relating to crypto and money.

  27. BnkToTheFuture is Simon Dixon's hangout. He was another speaker at that first ever bitcoin conference in Prague. His platform is evolving into an interesting space for all things crypto financing related. The twitter feed provides lots of interesting content with a broad overview on regulatory and other matters.

  28. BitfuryGeorge - OG miner. His opinion is a great resource. I think Bitfury will be doing some interesting and big things in 2018.

  29. Peter Todd used to do Darkcoin Darkwallet. Now he's a cryptography consultant. A real must follow on Twitter.

  30. Jeff Berwick emailed to remind me that I forgot to put him on the list. Busted. He's right. He was definitely the first of the libertarian crew who took to bitcoin. Most others in the libertarian/anarcho-capitalist community took a surprisingly long time to give up their gold buggery (as if the two were mutually exclusive). Jeff saw the glow of freedom in bitcoin straight away and we interviewed him often on the topic on Keiser Report. Glad to see that Jeff has added a Cryptopulco tent to his wildly successful annual Anarchpulco conference in Acapulco, Mexico. You should really all check it out - the guest line up looks amazing and, despite what you hear from the US State Dept, Acapulco is a stunning place. As is all of Mexico.

  31. Arry Yu shared a panel with me at the Nexus Earth conference in Aspen this summer. She's the COO of Storm which just had a wildly successful ICO.

Looks like you like to put Bitcoin Core people first. How can you put people like Andreas Antonopolous and Jameson Lopp first. No upvote from me...

So far as I can tell it's not a ranked list, where appearing earlier means one is more highly recommended. I personally loathe Bitcoin Core -- I consider it an altcoin and Bitcoin Cash to be the "real" Bitcoin. But I'm upvoting because it's a good list of people to keep an eye/ear on.

·
·

It's not ranked other than the first two I consider 'educators' and have many links on their own sites and on Twitter for newbies and not so-newbies.

·
·

Should be classified as Bitcoin Segwit. Cos Core (formerly) consists of almost everyone who ever contributed including amazing people like Taaki . And now the new group literally rip out the signatures from the blocks. Calling it Segregated Witness. Should be Signatures Removed.

Voting everyone there, that list got me on Steemit
Long live the Keiser Report ! They both ROCK !

Great list!

Thank you Stacy... what a great reference guide! You are a valuable member here even though you are the new kid on the block (this block) pun intended!

·

I may not get the most upvotes on Steemit, but I certainly bring in the most traffic from outside the site! Check out those view numbers!!!

·
·

Maybe it's those 6300+ viewers driving up the price of Steem today!!!

·
·
·

@jasonstaggers how could you... :D that's more than 2k viewers difference. just joking...

·
·

Stacy you are a gem and you have mucho clout! We are so grateful to have you here. If you consistently post here you will reap amazing rewards that will even rival your Bitcoin bootie. Once the word gets out on Steemit and the whales notice your numbers they will blow up your upvotes and with the rising price of Steem it will be astronomical. Maybe your wonderful post even helped with the new high we just hit on the first day of the year!! Make no mistake, I'm a true believer in Stacy Herbert and the @keiserreport my "new kid on the block" comment was pure irony!

·
·
·

Yeah; but it's giving me insight into the platform. One can see that 3,500 views (as this post has) is about three times more views than the average 'trending' steemit post with over $500. One does begin to wonder whether or not it's worth providing the content in such a situation; I do like the commenters on this site, however!

·

·

Unfortunately, this is what most of us experience when starting out here. You on the other hand should not be having this problem at all!

@ned, @jamesc, @smooth, @freedom, @tombstone, @aggroed, @cryptoctopus please welcome @keiserreport with some resteems and upvotes. Stacy Herbert is a well-known crypto celebrity and has received over 4000 views on this post!!

I have a feeling that some people may doubt the veracity of your account or maybe the lack of an #introduceyourself post has slowed your progress. If you post an #introduceyourself video now it could really help you. You can shoot on a phone and keep it short. Just a suggestion. Also, if you can continue to post regularly for a couple of weeks I think it will really catch on. Please don't give up yet... 2018 promises to be a great year for Steem and we would love to have you along for the ride.

For example: Check this out, Jeff Berwick received over $15,000 on his @dollarvigilante #introduceyourself post. This is really a key thing for celebrities on Steemit. They will roll out the red carpet for you please stay tuned I will work on getting the word out.

@keiserreport we appreciate your support of steemit, keep doing what your doing! Thank you.

·

·

I just posted a link to your post on Discord chat. Going to keep promoting it. Wow! 4300 views and counting!! Lets go Steemit!!!

·
·
·
·
·

What is discord chat? :D

·
·
·
·
·
·

We use it, as @otage mentioned, instead of private messaging. It is always active, and there are many groups, you can choose to add to your favourite group or server and add it to left side, so it's usable. Just play with it, and you will get used to it in no time.

·
·
·
·
·
·

Since we don't have private messaging yet here it is an offsite chat group where you can private message other users. People are already responding with votes : ) Today is a holiday so sometimes it is slow.

·
·
·
·

Be patient. I voted for your post because of that high view number that draw my attention. Organic traffic is really valuable and it has a chance to conver your followers that bring you views into steem users that would bring you upvotes.

·
·

Hello i just upvote you now and started following and please you should upvote me and follow me as well so we can easily see and upvote each other whenever we make a post. Thank you godson18

Thanx Stacy.
I also love Max. In a different kinda way. You two make a great team. Keep up the good work.
Cheers from Down under.

Alright, now you get my resteem! :)

·

And and known this post with your resteem :)

Thanks

Hi @keiserreport (Max and Stacey)!

I'd love to hear your thoughts on Clif High (www.halfpasthuman.com). He was absent in your list of sources about yet quite prominent. Any reason why?

Also have you heard of Verge (XVG). Wondering if you had any thoughts on it as well.

Thank you kindly....

And where are the people from the World of Warcraft community? We've been mining copper and mithril for ages and selling them for Gold even before the name of Bitcoin was coined.

Stacy wow that is the Master LIST! it is going to take me the first quarter just to catch up on all these amazing people you shared. Tell Max We say Hi and Love his energy! You two are a great complement to the blockchain space and you complement each other oh so beautifully. Thank you for what you guys do I really do appreciate your work your comedy and your love for each other.

·

Thanks. Lots of love in your comment. Literally. LOL. Thanks again.

"Been around the block." Classic! Great post!

Upvote / Comment / Follow / Resteem :-)

Excelent and very useful list!

Already following you and upvoted. Thanks for sharing.

Have a wonderful year...

List looks solid, bookmarked to go through later, thanks!

@keiserreport (Stacy) thanks for posting this list. I wish all these links were users here on Steemit! Hopefully they will all come here in 2018! Have a happy new year!

2018 and forward will be the time for STEEM, here's my analysis:

Thanks Stacy, great list and as a long time viewer/twitter follower I follow most of these on Twitter...some I missed so I will be checking them out. Gratitude to you and Max always :)

·

谢谢Stacy ...

Stacey, what must I do to win your love away from Max? Like that's gonna happen not. However your list is A+ more for the importance of each. Big fan of the Keiser Report because it be mo' betta than all the rest.

Jameson Lopp's page is incredible! What a compilation of data everyone's gotta read up on. Reading is fundamental when it comes to crypto, the block chain but gives one a sense of magnitude of what must come out of the criminal banking systems.

True; it's an A-grade resource available to anyone who bothers to click the link.

Bitcoin is my best coin..Bitcoin crypto running out fluently this time..

Pretty solid list. Can't disagree

Hello Crypto Duo,

I have created a list with these names and will be keeping a close eye on em. Thank you for sharing and wish you both a mighty powerful year as Bitcoin goes for the counter punch :)

A list of the same ol same ol.

Wow great list. So much so that im motivated to open a new Twitter account that i have put off for so long hoping Twitter would finally send me the damn text messsge to complete my login. By the way, if anyone has bee successful getting sround this, and my phone number is for Canada, i would sooooooooo appreciate it!

Wow I gave you a list of my favorites and we didn't cross once. Maybe we travel on different astral plains. But I have admired you for years and am taking your advice to heart. Thank you so much for caring and sharing.

Haven't seen the word privacy anywhere in this article. When moving to the crypto world, don't we want the choice of real anonymous transactions? Not for shady business, but for the sake of a large company not being able to sell your information to the highest bidder.

·

There are several cypherpunks and their guiding principle is privacy; Fluffypony's Monero is a way to transact privately and Dash (previously known as Darkcoin) also has privacy features.

What interesting circles you travel in. It must be a treat to be constantly surrounded by people who "get it" and see the decentralized future as clear as if it is day.

I had a dinner party Friday and one of my friends started into a conversation about blockchain with a complete stranger who was clearly not technical. After a minute or two she asked "So what is blockchain?" Without hesitation he proceeded with a lay explanation and moved right on. How long before they are teaching about blockchains, decentralized ledgers, and consensus algorithms at high-school?

And how long before we label the post-2009 generation as Generation B? For blockchain of course. Or maybe it should be ABZ "after block zero"? Or AS for "After Satoshi"?

long great list.are this people driving the price of bitcoin and other currency up and down.I hope so there doing it.

This is a phenomenal list of insightful key players and a great resource. There are a number in your list that I just heard of, so thanks for compiling it.

·

Thanks! Keep checking in as I am adding a few as I think about them. I know I said I wouldn't but can't help myself. :D

·

@keiserreport One of the best interviews i hear on the Alex Jones Show is when Max is being interviewed! Max is a class act! Your RT show rocks too! Thanks for all you do Max!

Here's some step by step guides to setting up wallets and buying cryptocurrencies: https://getcrypto.info/

Frankly I will do as you tell me but I see first what I should do

Fab list with many names I'm unaware of. Cool to see you driving traffic here and connecting the dots for those already here :)

Great list, the top five are people I've been following for the past couple months but good to have a few more names, 45 extra opinions on market analysis can't be a bad thing surely..

Guys last 6 day launch biggest cryptocrancy FUTURO coin

http://brenbaar.futurenet.club

Peter Todd didn't work on DarkCoin (Dash), he worked on Dark Wallet, which was privacy enhanced Bitcoin wallet project, using CoinJoin (which is basically the same privacy technique used also by Dash).

I hope that 2019 edition of this list would be mostly linking to steem accounts instead of twitter ;-)
(actually, some of them are already here, like @charlieshrem)

Great list. As a relative newcomer I'm excited to dig in.

Hello Stacey, It is wonderful for you to take the time to post this list. Thank-you so much for sharing not only your skill and insight as a journalist, but essentially your own personal contact list with us humble, unknown Steemians. You and Max kept me encouraged and engaged in crypto when no one around me had even heard of Bitcoin. When I couldn't even buy a whole coin at $300.
Things are different today and I partly have both of you to thank for that.
Live long and prosper!

·

aaand DONE !
Voted everyone !

What is up with all the hostility... Jeffy B has always called it how he sees it! Does anyone expect him to change now?? I think not! Time to book my flight to Acapulco.

I've already come across a few of the names you have listed, and I intend on researching the rest. Great post! I believe the same thing, that one need know all information and opinions of a subject, to properly format their own opinions.

Stacy, been listening to you and Max for a number of years now, and the two of you have always said things without sugar-coating them.... You have primarily been the reason why I have not lost faith in the cryptos, after being scammed multiple times :).... Thanks for an amazing contribution!!!

Clif High should get an honorable mention as he has also been an active voice in the price and direction of bitcoin and some other cryptos but too funny that you forgot Jeff.
Great read
Peace and prosperity!

Excellent list Anton is definitely my number 1 as well and I'm glad to see you have Amir Taaki on there too thanks #Stacy #Keiserreport

Amazing Stacy & Max - top shelf stuff as always - enjoying your shows and good work helping humanity with the stinky slumlord criminal bankster's and pushing crypto for the rest of us porridge eaters.
Super awesome list!

I hope Cryptos go Steeming Hot in 2018, and not just this list being Steeming Hot :)

Amazing thanks for sharing.

hello friend your post is very interesting to show the list of people who know a lot about the subject of virual currency is news ..
regards
do not forget to follow me
also give me up vote to help other people

thanks for the list Stacy. appreciate it
