Tradestreaming to become the first blockchain-enabled P2P media firm covering technology and finance

September 22, 2016

Jerusalem and New York City — Tradestreaming, a leading modern media publication, announced today that it is in discussion to become the first blockchain-enabled P2P media firm covering technology and finance. The daily must-read among influencers obsessed with the disruption of traditional finance by fintech may also introduce its own cryptocurrency, dubbed TradeBlock, which can be used as a content management system for Tradestreaming’s website, to pay Tradestreaming employees and will be accepted at Tradestreaming events and sponsorships.

“We like to practice what we preach,” said founder and editor-in-chief, Zack Miller. “We’re not 100 percent sure exactly what form this will take. We’re considering the Accenture model for blockchain domination, giving us entire control over the ledger behind TradeBlock. I don’t see any downside here. That means we, and by extension, our readers and sponsors, always win. Side door, back door, front door…hopefully, our new chief blockchain officer has it all figured out.” Tradestreaming is currently conducting a search for its newly-created Chief Blockchain Officer position.

Sporting infinitely-forkable technology and Tradestreaming’s patentable wallet-within-a-wallet cryptowallet, MetaWallet, TradeBlock should revolutionize the media industry. No longer will journalists have to fight WordPress or editors struggle with identifying appropriate artwork. TradeBlock makes the content creation, publishing, and dissemination of content seamless.

“We set an ambitious goal for ourselves,” said Miller. “Why stop at fintech content? TradeBlock has broad application to the entire media industry. We think that Tradestreaming will uberize media.”

Though details are sketchy, Tradestreaming may also ink a partnership with Facebook’s Internet.org to put TradeBlock into space. Using the social network’s satellite system, TradeBlock should be impenetrable to terrestrially domiciled hackers.

At least, that’s the hope, anyway.
