The State of Blockchain and Cryptocurrency Media in 2019: What PR Pros Need to Know
Although blockchain and bitcoin have been around for nearly a decade, the media frenzy and public interest around blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies has exploded in the past year. It also has given rise to thousands of companies that are trying to apply the technology to new or existing business models - including traditional financial systems. At the same time, many of them are utilizing existing cryptocurrencies or creating new ones to fuel their growth and development through innovative crowdfunding events like Security Token Offerings.

In this webinar, Alexander V. Laskin, professor at Quinnipiac University, and Katie Creaser, senior vice president of Affect, a PR and social media agency with a dedicated Blockchain and Cryptocurrency Practice will provide an introductory primer for financial communications professionals focusing on what they should know about blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies, and how they are changing the landscape of public relations.
