Buying Skycoin is just the first step. Now come join your new community on Telegram.

So you’ve downloaded the wallet and filled it with Skycoin. Now it’s time to take the next step and join the rest of the Skycoin community.

The Skycoin community, sometimes called “Skyfleet”, are all over the Internet; on Twitter, YouTube, and writing articles on Medium. Chances are you’ve encountered some of them on your journey thus far. But there’s one place where the community really comes together, and that’s on Telegram.

If you haven’t heard of Telegram, it’s a free and open cloud-based messaging platform. It works like Apple’s Messages, or What’s App, but is faster than those platforms and operates with much greater privacy and military-grade security protocols. Given its open and completely encrypted and distributed structure, Telegram naturally appeals to the crypto community, and Skycoin in particular.

Your first step in joining the Skycoin community is to visit telegram.org to download the app on the device of your choice. There’s a version for all platforms and operating systems, and they all sync with one another so you can install and log into your account anywhere.

When you first join a room, you may have to prove you are not a robot. Don’t forget to click the “I’m not a bot!” button within 24 hours – unless you really are a robot, in which case, don’t bother.

Once you’ve registered, be sure to pick a username, and then you’re ready to join some rooms! Remember for any room you join, to first carefully read any pinned message, especially before you start asking questions. Often the answers are there, and it’s impolite to waste the room’s time with questions that have been answered dozens of times, or for which you can find answers yourself. That’s why the pinned messages are there. You’ll find them at the top of the chat window.

Skycoin is a welcoming community, but it’s the members’ responsibility to follow some simple rules of etiquette. The pinned message will include any rules specific to the room, but in general community members should be polite and refrain from arguing with or insulting other members, avoid initiating off-topic discussions, especially when a different room already exists for that topic, and always listen to and obey the admins. Abusive or disruptive individuals may be warned, muted, or banned altogether. Trolls and spammers will not be tolerated. The admins are there to make sure each room is a friendly and welcoming place for everyone.

A friendly reminder from one of the moderators to read the pinned message.

Skycoin has dozens of Telegram rooms, and as a truly global community, includes many rooms hosted in other countries and languages. These are some of the primary ones you might wish to join first.

This is the general Skycoin chat room. A great place to share your passion for the project, and discuss Skycoin news. Discussion of Skycoin’s price, however, is not permitted in the main room.


Trading discussions, speculation on Skycoin price, and debates regarding your potential to one day afford a Lamborghini are all things that belong in the Skytrader room.


The Skyfleet News channel differs from many of the other Skycoin channels in that only admins are permitted to post, but it serves as a repository of all the latest Skycoin news and announcements.


Discussion of Skywire, Skycoin’s revolutionary decentralized Internet, as well as the Skyminers and antennas that make the Skywire network possible, takes place in the Skywire channel.

In fact, there are channels dedicated to virtually every aspect of the Skycoin ecosystem. (Fiber, CX Game Development, etc.)


There is also an exciting way to earn free Skycoin, and it’s only possible on Telegram. Join the Skycoin Rewards Program channel to learn about opportunities to creatively promote the Skycoin ecosystem in exchange for monthly chances to win thousands of dollars worth of Skycoin.

There is also a room dedicated to support, and there’s even an unofficial room for the rousing games the community plays together from time to time.

That’s how to get started engaging with the broader Skycoin community. We’re waiting for you, so come join the rest of Skyfleet on Telegram and see for yourself why Skycoin is the best community in crypto.
