Avoid ‘chat’ forums that are merely empty echo chambers that tolerate no real discussion. One example is the dreadful xrpchat that deals with XRP (which some know as Ripple). Anyone voicing even the mildest opposing viewpoint is quickly labeled troll or ‘fudster’ and is usually banned or marginalized in a short time.
Try to find independent research that doesn’t subscribe to a party line. Your information gathering and due diligence will include many points of view and this is far healthier.
