The service is built upon the Forbes’ broader coverage that covers news, technology insights, crypto space game changers, enterprise blockchain, and issues related to crypto traders. The newsletter costs $595 a year or $195 a quarter.
Forbes and The Crypto Industry
According to Schifrin, Forbes started to establish itself as a leading voice in the blockchain and crypto space when it launched its annual Fintech 50 lists in 2015. Also, this received further boost when the firm employed the services of an enterprise blockchain reporter, Michael del Castillo to join its budding group of writers.
Meanwhile, in coming months, Schifrin noted, the outlet would publish its first-ever Forbes Blockchain 50 list that will cover the most important companies in the industry.
Nina La France, senior vice president of consumer marketing and business development at Forbes, noted that the subscription to the service has been “solid”. However, the firm will still be rolling out marketing campaign, which is via emails, social media platforms, webinars among others to attract subscribers.
Forbes new service for the crypto and the blockchain industry is a further boost to the status of the nascent industry.
