CryptoYum

A community-curated cryptocurrency news reader

CryptoYum is unique in that our news and media sources are entirely community-curated - our community decides what coins, tokens, & projects should be listed & what sources have the highest signal-to-noise ratio.

We're just getting things started so feel free to suggest new resources here: https://thebitcoin.pub/c/cryptoyum/nominate-project

My cofounder and I are passionate about bitcoin, blockchain, and cryptocurrency tech... so much so that we spend a good percentage of our time every single day reading the news from a variety of different sources (probably just like you too!). As we began sharing select news via YouTube ( http://dctv.show ) our community began asking for our sources and ultimately they wanted a "curated" list of our favorite blogs, news, and media publications. We thought we'd "open source" the effort a bit and create a system where the community could help curate these sources to create the highest signal-to-noise ratio on the best tokens, coins, and blockchain projects. And thus CryptoYum was born. We're just getting things up and running and have a lot more tokens and coins and projects to add... feel free to suggest more on The Bitcoin Pub! https://thebitcoin.pub/c/cryptoy...

@8bit Congrats on the launch, was really looking forward to this one! Can you provide some insight into how you are currently curating the content on the site? For example, how much of the content is currently being submitted by users vs your team, and how does your team aggregate/curate the content? Im curious to know how much of it is manually selected by humans or are you using any tech/algorithms/nlp to gather/organize the links? Also does "All News" currently only feature links related to the top 11 coins listed on CryptoYum, or does it include more stories covering content beyond the listed coins?

@madebyildi I've actually thought about doing a full technical retrospective... would that be of interest?
@8bit yes definitely would be 🙏
Congratulations on launching this, John. The UI is finally one in this space that doesn't make me want to claw my eyes out. Fantastic, especially how this connects your community with the curated news that you share. One question: where would we direct bugs we find or any wonkiness that is inevitable with V1 launches? Again, great work on this. I've been waiting for it. It loads quickly, is sleek, the night/dark modes are killer, and although the site is text-rich it doesn't feel scattered or heavy on the eyes. Well done!

@8bit Consider it done. (And I knew you still had the WP blood in you.) Cannot express enough how well done this is. Bookmarked and followed closely!

@philiparthurmoore completely random... but watching your house get built has been neat.

I fell in love with it! Smooth UI, helps reduce the amount of brain fog I get everyday by simply doing the homework for me, presenting me the news I need without all the distraction that comes with such news channels and outlets, pop ups, sponsored news..etc
