Through an enterprise-focused news website, an industry-leading print publication and an annual event series, the Distributed suite explores the business cases, technical considerations, regulatory approaches and projects that are shaping the intersection of enterprise business and blockchain technology.
As blockchain technology grew more powerful and popular, BTC Inc found that Bitcoin Magazine had to cover detailed topics and far-reaching applications that were ultimately not connected to the financial sphere of cryptocurrencies. It saw decentralized pilot projects achieve high-level investments with the goal of reinvigorating fields as various as healthcare, energy, law and media. The Distributed brand was conceived as a way to inform more people in the business world about the massive potential of blockchain technology through a dedicated media suite.
