Bitcoin Businesses

At Bitcoinist we have a global team of analysts, traders, and journalists covering all aspects of bitcoin business. Bitcoin is far more than just a decentralized peer-to-peer digital currency. From its very early beginnings as a play thing for geeks and cypherpunks it has grown into one of the world’s largest currencies.

Up until a couple of years ago bitcoin was relatively unknown, mined on gaming rigs in garages and, generally considered too technical for the average layman. Today bitcoin business news has cemented its place in the mainstream media alongside other financial investment vehicles such as currencies, stocks and commodities.

Bitcoinist aims to deliver unbiased business news and updates from the bitcoin and crypto industry which has seen almost exponential growth over the past couple of years. As institutional interest in bitcoin increases, more businesses are going to be following the space to get a leading edge on their competitors. New bitcoin investment products are being developed and we will be at the forefront of industry news for BTC and related business.
