“I love how real Alex is. He just tells you straight exactly what you need to know about crypto and it just makes sense. Alex is the kind of guy you wished all your teachers at university were like. He's passionate and wants to help you, and you learn what you need to know.”

Dr Prash Puspanathan Founder & CEO, Caleb & Brown

“Alex has been a stalwart of the Australian crypto community for as long as I can remember. Importantly, he is someone who is as vocal, supportive and present in the good times as the more difficult. He has always shown a commitment to exploring not just the most topical issues, but also the more obscure and thought provoking. Alex's standing in the community is evident in his loyal follower base as well as the partnerships with key industry stakeholders; relationships that stand him in good authority to comment on issues as they arise.”

Dave Martin Co-Founder & Director, Power Ledger

“I like Nugget’s News because there’s no hype. Just Alex’s informed opinion and insight on the crypto space. If you want an inside view into the blockchain and crypto industries, some news on practical applications of this emerging tech, and a considered opinion on what it all means, Alex is your man.”

Who is Alex Saunders?

Hi, I’m Alex (Nugget) Saunders, founder of Nugget’s News. I help busy everyday people like yourself stay ahead of the herd and become successful investors.

I’ve been immersed in the crypto space since learning of Bitcoin in 2012. My investment decisions are informed by a unique combination of fundamental and technical analysis, as well as market sentiment indicators.

In 2017, I left my successful career as a head pharmacist to follow my passion and found Nugget’s News. In the time since, I’ve established a loyal following through my educational YouTube channel and Nugget’s Crypto Community.

Whether it’s speaking at community meetups, sitting on the board of Blockchain Australia, educating policymakers, or helping blockchain startups, I’ve grown to cherish my role as a trusted voice in Australia’s budding crypto community.
