BitcoinTalk covers a number of topics and caters to an international audience by providing forum discussion in 21 languages. BitcoinTalk’s discussion topics are not as extensive as Reddit’s forum. Sure you can find information about any altcoin on BitcoinTalk but there’s only one forum subpage dedicated to all altcoins making it hard to find discussion about the altcoin you want to research.
BitcoinTalk was ready to dethrone Reddit from its monopolistic control over cryptocurrency forum discussion but BitcoinTalk would frequently crash due to an inability to operate with high volumes of visitors. Because of that BitcoinTalk has lost site engagement but is recovering well by ranking 891st in global website traffic according to alexa.com.
While many crypto companies and users post valid information on BitcoinTalk, there is no doubt that a lot of the information posted on BitcoinTalk is unbased and lack legitimate sources.
Like any other forum, BitcoinTalk’s content is all generated from the people so BitcoinTalk does not have any inherent biases. However, there seems to be a optimistic bias from the subscribed community. It’s pretty easy to understand why. The people posting and commenting on the forum are crypto traders and personally invested in the success of cryptocurrency.
BitcoinTalk is a forum based website with user generated content running the traffic to the website. BitcoinTalk was campaigning to replace Reddit as the cryptocurrency forum king. However, just when BitcoinTalk was becoming popular it would crash whenever a large amount of users were visiting the website. BitcoinTalk has since solved this issue, but that combined with the major crypto correction at the beginning of 2018, it has since lost a tremendous amount of momentum.
