I’m thrilled to report the resounding success of CoinDesk TV since its launch in our state-of-the-art studio just seven weeks ago, with over 2.9 million views and counting. (Read the original press release here and Executive Producer Joanne Po’s announcement here.)
Viewers have flocked to our livestream video coverage on CoinDesk.com, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. As the global trusted media source for crypto, blockchain and related financial and economic topics, CoinDesk TV has fast become must-see TV for both retail and institutional investors needing to stay abreast of market action.
CoinDesk TV engages in high-profile interviews, making news on-air, including CoinDesk TV’s recent, widely referenced interview with Anthony Scaramucci, who stated companies should begin to hold bitcoin because a flood of stimulus money in the U.S. is actually a “silent tax on American savers.”
We were fortunate to count on commitments from a number of our advertising partners from the outset, each recognizing CoinDesk TV’s capacity to reach a wide, digitally native audience. So I’m excited to now announce our three Launch Sponsors: Crypto.com, Grayscale and Nexo.io. (Grayscale is a wholly owned subsidiary of Digital Currency Group, which also owns CoinDesk.) We are honored to receive support from these three firms for the development of quality, trusted media for the crypto and blockchain industry.
CoinDesk TV shows have already showcased a bevy of world-class guest appearances from notables in business, pop culture, government and the crypto industry, including:
- Anthony Scaramucci, SkyBridge Capital founder
- Beeple, the digital artist who sold his NFT for $69.3 million at Christie’s
- Hester Peirce, SEC commissioner
- Gary Vaynerchuk, CEO of VaynerMedia
- Brian Brooks, former Acting Comptroller of the Currency
- Catherine Coley, CEO of Binance U.S.
- Kevin O’Leary, chairman of O’Shares Investments and "Mr. Wonderful" of "Shark Tank"
