Many investors value long-form discussions about blockchain and digital currencies, which has led to the popularity of crypto podcasts these past few years. Thus, we have scoured YouTube in search of the top podcasts on the topic.
We chose YouTube despite the fact that it isn’t primarily a podcast platform since it is the world’s second-largest search engine. Moreover, most if not all podcasters distribute their audio on youtube to exploit the platform’s wide reach.
There is a limited amount of credible data available for the casual investor concerning cryptocurrency and blockchain investing. As a result, YouTube has become the de facto fount of digital asset explainers and crypto market investing advice.
Top YouTube Blockchain Podcasts
Our team researched the best YouTube blockchain podcasts and created a detailed list of the top podcasts for 2020. Our scoring looks at the number of subscribers, views of the podcast’s most popular video, videos posted. More importantly, we take into account the consistency of the postings, production quality of the videos, and the quality of the information conveyed.
Our team also noted if a podcast was rebroadcasted from outside YouTube and if any additional content was added.
