In times of recession, advertising budgets are often the first expense businesses eliminate. That makes it particularly difficult for leading blockchain publications such as Crypto Briefing and CryptoSlate that attract a combined readership of 800,000 monthly active members to their sites. Today, we’re happy to announce these media publications no longer need to be concerned about dwindling ad revenue as Cred now enables Crypto Briefing and CryptoSlate to earn revenue by delivering earning and borrowing services. This is a win for media publishers, and valuable for their readers who can manage their crypto and read about it in the same place! We believe that enabling our partners’ new ways of generating revenue can result in fewer ads, and a better reader experience than in years past.
Cred will continue to roll out its services to leading cryptocurrency publications so their readership can earn directly through media sites. We will help media publications ensure they have a sustainable business without sacrificing the quality of their content. Customers increasingly appreciate direct engagement with the channel that they visit every day, and can earn on their cryptocurrency while indirectly supporting the websites where they get all of their news.
“This is an exciting opportunity to support quality media publications and their readers, while also making Cred’s services more easily accessible,” said Dan Schatt, CEO, and Co-Founder of Cred. “Our mission is to bring fairness back to financial services and working with leading publications who advocate for blockchain and cryptocurrency are a great next step for us.”
Readers of Cryptoslate and CryptoBriefing will be able to take advantage of this exclusive partnership by clicking on a persistent banner on Crypto Briefing and CryptoSlate. Readers will be able to earn interest on their cryptocurrency holdings directly without leaving their favorite publications.
Crypto-based media sites have been expanding since the initial crypto boom of 2009. Many of which focus on bringing real news, deep research analysis and unfiltered opinions to the blockchain investment community. Due to their unique blend of data and news, comprehensive market analysis and reporting, millions of readers flock to their sites on a monthly basis. Many of these media outlets have become an educational asset for the crypto community for not only showcasing innovations in the industry but also informing readers of real-world financial situations.
