Daily Crypto was a daily flash briefing on cryptocurrency world news. The podcast featured updates on bitcoin, altcoins, exchanges, regulation, blockchain forks, and guest CEO’s from blockchain firms such as IOTA, OPSkins, bitFlyer and YouNow. The podcast was hosted on dailycrypto.io and available on 30+ podcast platforms.
In 2016, I first became aware of bitcoin and cryptocurrencies and eventually fell down the rabbit hole. In May 2017, I saw growth in the market, but there was still much skepticism around cryptocurrencies. I experienced the controversial bitcoin hard fork in August of 2017 and saw how developers and communities play a role in network participation. As the technology was early stage, I saw this as an opportunity to become an early adopter and not only learn about but also explain happenings in blockchain.
I decided to start a podcast, specifically on blockchain and cryptocurrency news. At this time, China had banned crypto-to-fiat exchanges and the news had substantial impact on the crypto market. I wanted to provide a brief daily report on cryptocurrency world news to help enthusiasts, traders, investors, and spectators keep up to date with this early stage but high growth technology. At the time, there were less than 30 blockchain and crypto podcasts in existence. Today, there are well over 100 podcasts that focus on blockchain and cryptocurrencies.
The podcast experienced major success reaching 85k monthly downloads. Daily Crypto had phenomenal search rankings and an established presence on all podcast platforms. It had over 60 reviews on iTunes and more than 1k subscribes on CastBox. The podcast reached a successful exit in 2018.
