The world of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologies is a market in constant motion. The news flows regularly, and in just a few hours the hottest topic becomes stale news.
Those who invest in this world need to be immediately informed, checking the news from various sources, not only to corroborate its veracity but also to have as much information as possible.
Learning of an event hours after it can be catastrophic for those who invest in this type of market (or any other). And for those of you who don’t believe it, this chart may serve as an incentive.
Let’s say you gave up your $5,000 in Bitconnect, the most hyped crypto on the market and decided to take a well-deserved 2-week break to start the year. Boom! Even on that bearish streak, finding out a few hours later could mean hundreds or thousands of dollars in losses.
This is why news aggregators exist. They are programs that automate the work for you, giving users a complete summary of the latest news that second by second publish the best websites. However, being so many choices out there, it is difficult to pick the best: Here is a list of the top options any Cryptocurrency Investor should consider:
Cryptopanic is without a doubt the most used news aggregator in all the crypto sphere: Its sources, speed, and constant updating make it the best choice for those who want to follow the best news.
Something that sets it apart from the rest is that it is a kind of “social network” for enthusiastic crypto enthusiasts, allowing users to interact with the portal, classifying each news item, allowing each person to get an objective and human opinion of each piece before reading it. You can see whether or not the audience liked the news, whether it has a bullish or bearish potential, whether it is fake news and even make fun of it with a LOL button.
On the right side, there is the price behavior of the top cryptocurrencies while on the left side there are several options such as “sign in,” “saved news,” “change interface” or subscribe to a “pro version” with more options and improvements.
The best option for those who want to know beforehand what others think and how every news can influence individual decisions in the markets.
CryptoFlash is another well-known news aggregator. Its solidity and acceptance make it one of the favorites. Its interface stands out from the rest for being somewhat futuristic, with an attractive blue color showing the most important price fluctuations of all the cryptocurrencies in real time as well as a column with the latest news of the crypto sphere.
The news is accompanied by an icon that allows the user to identify which category they belong to quickly. However, the feature that most pleases users is the development of a dedicated app for iOS and Android that lets mobile phone owners see the best news in a format specially adapted to their phones.
An ideal choice for those who prefer dedicated applications over web browsing for content

Coinspectator is still committed to a simple and minimalist design. It offers a timeline with the most up-to-date news, a subscription option, a change of interface button, a personal blog and an ICO monitoring option.
What makes it unique is that in their blog they choose the most critical news and publish them directly on the portal. Something worth taking into account since an expert’s opinion can always be more important than some programming algorithm.
Ideal for those who prefer a human touch in an automated world.
If Coinmarketcap offered the news service, the result would be Coinlib. This is one of the most worked out news aggregators at the interface level.

The same goes for the “Exchanges” option: their volume, the most traded pairs, and the most important information appear in graphics that are very beautiful and pleasing to the eye. Afterward, the news of each one of them appears in real time in the lower part of the page.
It also has other vital tools such as widgets, price browser for arbitrage, price alert, calculator for converting cryptos, etc.
An excellent choice for dedicated traders who enjoy graphics more than just numbers when trading.
Cryptocontrol is a news aggregator focused on the visual. Its curious design is entirely different from the rest: the news do not appear on a timeline but in several boxes that can be seen on the screen.
Each box has a specific size and color. The color determines the category of the news item while the size determines its importance. The bigger the box, the more important or relevant it is.
An excellent choice for those who are more visual and creative.

It also has a tab dedicated exclusively to technical analysis; listing news focused in that sense. A tab to see the latest interviews with important personalities in the area, a tab that works as a kind of personal blog for important announcements and a dedicated tutorials tab for all those who want to get deeper into the world of the blockchain.
