Blockchain is huge right now. This is partly to do with the recent Bitcoin mania, as cryptocurrency like Bitcoin runs off a blockchain. However, Blockchain has far more wide-reaching potential than crypto. It is a technology that is set to disrupt industries from financial services to property, energy to law. The potential that blockchain has to enhance cybersecurity and transparency in a range of areas, and to democratise some elements of the way we live and work, is massive.
If you are as enthusiastic about blockchain as we are, or if you simply want to know more, or want to keep up-to-date with the latest news and developments, this article will be an indispensable resource.
We’ve consulted our whole team on the blogs and websites they use to keep regularly informed on blockchain news…
Here are the top blockchain websites that made the cut.
London based crypto and blockchain publisher, Planet Blockchain, offers regularly updated blockchain use including, but not limited to, crypto. In-depth analysis and insights accompany news about announcements, funding and acquisitions within blockchain at large. A powerful resource for current and intelligent insight into the developments within the industry.
First and foremost, the site that came up on top with all members of the TDMB team was Invest In Blockchain, one of the only blockchain websites whose focus is really on blockchain itself rather than cryptocurrency. An absolute wealth of content here to work your way through, all regularly updated with the latest and greatest.
Coin Telegraph is a news resource for anyone interested in Cryptocurrency. Like many of the websites below, it therefore has a heavy leaning towards the Crypto applications of blockchain technology. Nonetheless, it’s not all Bitcoin and Ethereum. The site is updated daily with the latest news on everything to do with blockchain in all its incarnations.
Like Coin Telegraph, Coin Desk is updated daily with great, up-to-date news from blockchain at large and – yes – cryptocurrency. It also has a range of resources for the beginner, with some educational and informative pages with lots of what-you-need-to-know details about blockchain, as well as leading cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin and Ethereum.

AVC is the site run by Fred Wilson, a leading influencer and VC who writes every day about pretty much whatever is in his head. He’s a good one to follow on Twitter, incidentally, and not just for his blockchain knowledge, but for his interest and expertise in everything from technology to TV. You can also follow AVC on Twitter too, which is a general feed of all Wilson’s blog posts.
This website is kinda cool just because of its back-to-basics layout which really resembles a traditional newspaper. Follow the links written in Courier font for a huge variety of blockchain articles aggregated from the web at large.

The Financial Times’ Alphaville offshoot is all about the blockchain, though it’s not really updated as regularly as some of the other sites on this list. Nonetheless, being the Financial Times, you can be assured that when news does hit, it’s going to be insightful.
Brave New Coin offers digital currency insights as a service, but also hosts a good chunk of resources and news on its site. There are also downloadable whitepapers, which are always handy when you want to put your feet up and have a deeper read.
Whilst some sites in this list remain pretty obsessed with the big names in crypto, News BTC seems to offer much more for those interested in other cryptocurrencies. There’s also a good deal of information for those wanted to get started in investment in crypto. It has a whole section of news dedicated to blockchain proper, where crypto takes a backseat to the wider topic of blockchain itself.
There certainly is a lot of news in the world of Bitcoin, isn’t there? Here on CCN.com (a url that must suffer from a horrendous bounce rate), it is another crypto party in full swing, with seven new articles published today (21st Feb) alone.
We plan to keep updating this article as time goes on, adding emerging new blockchain news websites as they come up.
