The rating will help for:

  • Marketers and PR managers, in order to assess the quality of resources to get better results
  • Journalists, editors, and owners of content platforms looking for quality news and to evaluate competitors
  • Investors and traders, to assess the quality of information sources to make better decisions

I am pleased to present to you a rating of the top 145 news resources, one of the main areas of which is the coverage of events in the niche of blockchain and cryptocurrencies.

In order to determine the best, I gathered a database of 145 news media resources and blogs, and then I found data about their DA, Alexa Rank, monthly visits, avg. visit durations, bounce rates, number of backlinks, and number of do-follow backlinks.

Then I sorted the database by each parameter and assigned each site a number of points according to the formula "The number of points is equal to the number of sites plus one and minus its position." For example, after sorting by DA, Cointelegraph took third place, meaning it gets 145 + 1 - 3 = 143 points. Crypto Potato took 51st place, which means it gets 145 + 1 - 51 = 95 points.

Next, I added up all the points for each of the 7 parameters and got the final result. You can check the raw data in the Google Docs spreadsheet, that is more convenient. I hope that such an attitude protected from subjectivity as much as possible.

News.bitcoin.com won first place with 978 points. It was interesting to compare it with Cointelegraph. On the one hand, CT has a higher Alexa Rank, with more than twice the audience and more backlinks. But news.bitcoin.com has less of a bounce rate and a twice higher avg. visit duration, which suggests that although they have a smaller audience, their readers interact with the content better and longer.

All the data about the 145 resources in this spreadsheet.

Below you will find the list of the best 10 crypto news resources of 2019, and then there will be the full list of the best 145 resources.
