SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Visionary founders Brock Pierce, James Heckman and David Bailey have been the architects behind some of the world’s most important digital innovations and ecosystems, including global currency, digital media and advertising technology, reaching and changing the lives of millions, while creating billions in lasting value for investors and consumers. The trio now plan to combine their experience, relationships and innovative technical talent to empower, finance, distribute and monetize hundreds of the world’s top political and crypto/blockchain journalists, activists and passionate news producers. The tie to cryptocurrency will eventually be technical and structural, as the founders assert it as not just technology but a political movement towards privacy, self-sustainability and true liberty.
Crypto/blockchain legend and Bitcoin Foundation Chair, Brock Pierce explained the intersection of Crypto and Politics: “Blockchain followers see the world differently, uninterested in old ideas. We believe we can reverse what has become a divisive tone that dominates American politics and media. That alone is worth our time and resources. We will launch with a foundational audience of revolutionary consumers, open-minded, positive people, who are not tied to any party or fixed point of view,” said Pierce. “We believe in a brighter future, created in an open, fair, free media marketplace, where the value of ideas are determined by the people – rather than a centralized newsroom, which today are using censorship and personal attacks to drive their narrative. We’re all-in on saving the world from this polarization.”
Serial digital entrepreneur James Heckman outlined the advantages of the new venture. “Our combined resources, architectural head start, track record and brilliant content partners create a big head-start but our motivation is our biggest asset. Our core mission is to empower, protect and unify journalists and activists, while restoring civility, so the people are served and educated, rather than used as political marketing targets. We believe inspired journalists want to rejoin the side of the people they are tasked to serve, and we’re here to empower them.”
BTC Media CEO and Bitcoin Conference owner, David Bailey, completed the partnership with Heckman and Pierce during the largest blockchain conference in history last week, in Miami, Florida. “As a board member of Maven, I watched this business model create a unified audience of over 100 million quickly, and we believe we will repeat that success. Not just on core business metrics of audience and revenue, we are committed to providing the world with an ecosystem of great thinkers, journalists, and political activists, to turn around what we believe is a media industry that has lost its way. Our Bitcoin Conference was incredibly motivating, seeing thousands of leaders come together from all points of view, to change the…
