Coineer Magazine, owned and operated by Confluent Technologies Inc., have entered into a franchise agreement with NewsBTC to become the Canadian arm of the popular Bitcoin news service. As a result Coineer will now operate as NewsBTC Canada.
NewsBTC, founded in October 2013, aims to publish useful news articles, interviews, and other pieces of information that help you better understand the bitcoin ecosystem. The editorial vision aims to deliver hard news and analysis — not speculation and rumours. NewsBTC’s breaking news and analysis attracts more than one hundred thousand unique visitors each month.
In 2012 Confluent Technologies launched the first Bitcoin magazine available in both print and online editions: Coineer – The Bitcoin Magazine for Business. After publishing its first two issues Confluent Technologies decided put Coineer into safe-harbour until the market matured. Due to the increased media attention and a rise in the profile of bitcoin and cryptocurrency in 2014 Coineer started to explore options to re-enter the market. Jonathan Millet CEO of NewsBTC, says
We are very excited about working with a strong member of the community like Confluent Technologies. We believe that reporters should report from inside the community and Toronto is one of the largest Bitcoin communities in the world. By choosing a local strategy we feel that we can deliver more accurate and engaging content.
The new site is scheduled to launch July 2015. NewsBTC is a news service that covers bitcoin news, technical analysis, and forecasts for bitcoin and other alt-coins. The website publishes news articles, interviews, and other information that help its users better understand the Bitcoin ecosystem under categories such as regulation, taxation, price, exchanges, brokers, bitcoin casinos, mining, podcasts, Bitlicense, and advertisements. Confluent Technologies is a media and software development company with 15 years of experience creating software and content.
