Are there any websites or blogs out there that do a good job of scouting out new altcoins?  I'm hoping someone is out there combing through these forums and picking out the interesting stuff and writing about it.

I hope you'll excuse the question but are you mainly thinking of free-to-read offerings or do you also as a matter of course consider fee-charging offerings? I'm interested in people's perceptions.

Fee-charged is fine if there's a free trial and/or a great reputation.

Thanks for an informative reply. It'd have to be a free trial, I guess. In this domain reputations can be purchased and are mostly worthless; in other domains, reputations cannot be purchased and are mostly priceless.

I'm not aware of anything along the lines you describe (not that I claim any authority in the matter). As far as I know, the nearest match is altcoincalendar.info but that's a long way from your requirements because i) it's just a calendar and ii) the content is somewhat variable in terms of detail and significance - it is dependent on the API receiving genuine announcements vs joke material. And that's really where the problem lies; the information is unreliable at source, joke or otherwise. It'd be a case of garbage in, garbage out.

Things may be looking up though. I've noticed an increasing number of comments recently calling/hoping for increased transparency so perhaps attitudes are starting to harden towards misinformation and deliberate disingenuity.

I envisage a transparency-oriented scheme, analogous to the FOSS "Description of a Project" DOAP scheme, that publishes altcoin core metadata in a computationally-tractable format. This would at least enable you to apply your own programmatic filters or simply browse summaries of the latest announcements.

We're not there yet, though.

Cheers,

Graham.

I love APIs too but I think what we need here is someone to do the grunt work the old-fashioned way and periodically publish their findings to paying members.

How is ProTraderTips?
