Twitter is a hugely popular venue for talking crypto, but not everyone who posts about Bitcoin on Twitter truly has the expertise they claim.

For the most part, those with actual Bitcoin trading expertise have learned from experience: they actively buy and sell the cryptocurrency in the hopes of making an ongoing profit, whether they’re a day-trader or an institutional investor. Those who’ve spent years trading Bitcoin have plenty to teach others, and paying attention to them could get you just the edge you need.

We’ve selected 10 Twitter accounts of especially salient Bitcoin traders to share with you based on the following three criteria:

  • Informative: The feed regularly features technical analysis, in-depth exploration of various facets of crypto, or other useful knowledge.
  • In the loop: The feed includes insight and commentary about current events in the world of crypto, possibly including breaking news or other unique updates.
  • Predictive: The feed includes predictions and forecasts about crypto, a reasonable percentage of which have proven accurate.

Consider following these ten successful, insightful — and often entertaining — Bitcoin traders on Twitter. You might end up learning things that could potentially inform your future Bitcoin trades.

1. Andreas M. Antonopoulos (@aantonop)

Feed criteria: informative

Commonly tweets about: blockchain technology; Bitcoin

The author of Mastering Bitcoin is a well-known cryptocurrency expert, and he’s made it onto CoinDesk’s list of most influential people in cryptocurrency quite a few times. Antonopoulos’ Twitter feed often highlights posts and videos that explore the nature of cryptocurrency and blockchain and spell out how various aspects work. He’s even served as an expert witness in cryptocurrency-related hearings, including the Australian Senate Banking Committee.

Follow him if: you want to develop a deep understanding of the technical and academic background behind cryptocurrency and blockchain.

2. WhalePanda (@WhalePanda)

Feed criteria: in the loop; predictive

Commonly tweets about: Bitcoin

WhalePanda is a Belgian crypto investor who’s been involved in Bitcoin since 2014 and is a devout Bitcoin maximalist. He is one of the more controversial traders on this list (case in point: his statement at Baltic Honeybadger 2018 that 90% of traders are losing money and should get out), but he’s also a legend in the crypto community. He frequently posts about crypto innovations long before they’ve entered the mainstream.

Follow him if: you want to be on top of everything that’s happening in the crypto industry the moment it happens, and if you have a good sense of humor.

3. Vinny Lingham (@VinnyLingham)

Feed criteria: in the loop; predictive

Commonly Tweets about: blockchain technology; Bitcoin

The “Bitcoin Oracle” and co-founder of Civic, a blockchain identity management startup, Lingham is best known for his eerily accurate Bitcoin price predictions. Ironically, Lingham sold the bulk of his Bitcoin holdings in early 2017 at a mere $1250 apiece. Despite that fact, he’s frequently solicited to speak at crypto events and his forecasts still have a habit of coming true. For example, in the below tweet, Lingham expressed a bearish outlook on Bitcoin ETF approval in August; sure enough, the approval fell through.

Follow him if: you want to learn more about blockchain, and also get to be one of the first to hear the Oracle’s next crypto prediction.

4. Luke Martin (@VentureCoinist)

Feed criteria: informative; predictive

Commonly tweets about: Bitcoin; altcoins

A renowned Bitcoin trader and host of Coin Chat, a YouTube series about all things cryptocurrency. He’s also the founder of VentureCoinist, a members-only crypto analysis and trading information website. Martin’s Twitter feed often features charts and analysis of various cryptoassets’ performance. In the below tweet, he explains his approach for assessing altcoin value.

Follow him if: you favor technical analysis and want to get an expert opinion on what recent price movements might indicate.

5. Sicarious (@sicarious_)

Feed criteria: predictive; in the loop

Commonly tweets about: Bitcoin; Ethereum

This semi-retired crypto trader doesn’t share much information about his private life (according to Sicarious’ Twitter profile, he is located on the moon), but there’s no mystery about the fact that Sicarious is a crypto expert. This Twitter feed generally features commentary, charts, and chitchat. Sicarious is also generous about sharing information about his own trades, which gives his followers the opportunity to copy those moves.

Follow him if: you want advice on crypto trades from a professional trader.

6. Anondran (@anondran)

Feed criteria: predictive; in the loop

A crypto analyst and trader who uses Twitter as the sole outlet for his commentary. Anondran describes himself as a “blockchain enthusiast” and frequently tweets predictions about both Bitcoin and altcoins, as well as commentary on recent crypto-related events.

Commonly tweets about: Bitcoin

Host of the CNBC Africa show Crypto Trader and founder of Onchain Capital, a Bitcoin investment firm. He’s been posting about crypto on Twitter since 2009, and he boasts that he had four good calls in the last bull market. Since he doesn’t make predictions very often, that’s a pretty good record.

Follow him if: you enjoy crypto-related polls and contests; both are heavily featured on his Twitter feed.

8. Crypto Yoda (@CryptoYoda1338)

Feed criteria: predictive; in the loop

Commonly tweets about: Bitcoin; altcoins

This trader posts mostly technical analysis and discussion of crypto-related news — his Twitter feed is very chart-heavy. He is also known for accurately identifying early entry signals.

He’s also known to make predictions like the below example, which has proven correct so far.

10. Alvin Lee (@onemanatatime)

Feed criteria: informative; predictive
