Whalepool is a multi-platform community of bitcoin traders. The core of the community is the Teamspeak audio and text conferencing server, which consistently has over 100 users who are talking everything bitcoin from the technology, politics, philosophy, and economics in general. The focus of the group is bitcoin trading, and thus the main topic that dominates the discourse is market action on Bitcoin spot and futures prices.
Whalepool was founded on the same principles that drive bitcoin: freedom, transparency, and connectivity. We do not ban or kick people from our groups. We seek understanding, truth, and profits -- lots and lots of profits. We are open-minded and seek to hear all sides of issues and offer a platform for anyone who has passion to get involved to contribute.
We offer a balance of a free and open place for discussion but also a serious price-focused market environment. Our Price Discussion room on Teamspeak is an on-topic channel for price action and market analysis only. Thus you never have to feel uncomfortable to hear offtopic chatter, or conversely hearing boring market talk when the price is flat. You can always choose to be in a different channel and you can always have the chance to express yourself freely on any matter of significance.
The traders on Whalepool have a wide variety of backgrounds -- some are young students, others are veteran traders with legacy finance backgrounds. Some trade on the weekends, others trade daily for a living. While most of us trade bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies like litecoin, ethereum, and dash, we also have significant portion of the community trading FX, stocks, and commodities (often using bitcoin to do it!). Many traders use charts and technical analysis to figure out when to trade, others focus on news and fundamental analysis. No matter where you fit along this multi-dimensional spectrum you are welcome to come in and take part in the discussion or lurk/follow us on Twitter, Telegram, Reddit.
Whalepool is supported by donations from the community who appreciate the resources, time, and energy put into providing the multiple services that we give 100% open to the public.
