Information is wealth!
As a newbie once you enter the crypto space you keep wondering how to stay updated with what's happening around. Who are some of the prominent figures in the crypto space I could follow? How do I get my daily dose of crypto? Fear not my friends! I was also in a similar situation a month back when I had first heard about crypto from my Friends. I will list all the sources I use to keep myself educated. Feel free to add in the comments if I have missed out on someone so that I can check it out.

He also has his own academy and is on a sole mission of spreading crypto and blockchain knowledge to all!
