NewsBTC has continued rolling out a series of initiatives in 2017, launching a strategic partnership with fintech and crypto news portal, Fintechist. The latest accord follows on the heels of NewsBTC’s growing industry ambitions and expansion, part of a concerted effort to grow its market penetration in the blockchain and cryptocurrency space.
The forging of a new partnership with Fintechist represents an integral development for the cryptocurrency and blockchain-focused media company. By teaming up with Fintechist, NewsBTC will be able to further augment the scope of its cryptocurrency focus, further improving its capabilities in blockchain and other related fields as well.
NewsBTC had already experienced an eventful H2 2017, having undergone a series of expansions in its personnel. Last month, the group kicked off a hiring spree of industry specialists, including a pantheon of veteran journalists, business developers and financial analysts – the group also expanded its focus in the foreign exchange (FX) field during this period.
Since then however, NewsBTC also headlined the recent Blockchain Technology and Cryptocurrency conference (BTCC) in Mumbai earlier this month as a key exhibitor. The group’s presence signaled a growing commitment to Southeast Asia as it looks to solidify its coverage in India and the broader region.
Per the latest accord, NewsBTC will be able to leverage its position as a leader in the cryptocurrency space, expanding its coverage to an even wider audience. Jonathan Millet, CEO of NewsBTC commented on the partnership: “I am happy the hard work is finally paying off, while Fintechist will enable us to expand our reach and goals in the Q4 2018.”
Earlier this month, NewsBTC made headlines bringing in veteran blockchain specialist Eddy Travia. Mr. Travia joined NewsBTC as a member of its Board of Advisors, who has since been tasked with advising on the group’s expansion plans. Mr. Travia presently serves as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of London-based investment company and accelerator Coinsilium, having held the role for over three years.
