TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA – Coineer Magazine, owned and operated by Confluent Technologies Inc. (Confluent Technologies), 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 is to deliver hard news and analysis — not speculation and rumours. NewsBTC attracts more than 100,000 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, said:
“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.
