Who am I?
Hi! I am Stefano, creator of Bitcoin Monkey and freelance web developer.
I’ve been following the cryptocurrency scene since almost the early days but, especially during the last few years, I’ve found always difficult to find relevant and reliable news. There are simply too many sites, articles, blogs, forums, and videos talking about it, and in this space it’s too easy to stumble on shady and scammy sources.
To make things easier I created Bitcoin Monkey, a cryptocurrency trending news aggregator powered by “Smart Intelligence”.
What is Bitcoin Monkey?
Bitcoin Monkey tracks the news about cryptocurrencies from reliable and verified sources (do you want to get your site listed here?) from the last 90 days and we try to surface all trending and top news worth reading, so you can spend your time on what really matters.
What is “Smart Intelligence”?
It’s actually… something I made up! 🙂
It’s the name I gave to an algorithm that gives a score the each news. It takes in consideration the popularity of an article on various networks at various stages after its publication (currently Twitter and Reddit – Facebook will be added soon), current trending topics and cryptocurrencies, and a couple of other things. All this goes through the magic of the “Smart Intelligence” algorithm which normalizes those values and returns a score between 0 and 100.
On occasions this score can even be greater than 100 or lower than 0 because there are also additional modifiers applied to the score.
