The Daily Decrypt Joins the LTB Network
Napa, CA, November 24, 2015 — The LTB Network welcomes cryptocurrency and P2P news show The Daily Decrypt as an independent member. The show will begin with two appearances per week on the network front page, while publishing Monday through Friday on their LTB Network blog. Amanda B. Johnson, the founder of The Daily Decrypt, along with her partner Pete Eyre, said they wanted to report crypto news in a format that is less “saturated” than online print media. She said:
“We produce good content which is pretty much unique in terms of all the competition out there. We see the market for crypto text-based news as quite saturated, which is why we chose video.”
The Daily Decrypt is the first regular video show on the network. Since launching on October 5, they’ve created 37 daily episodes, usually of five to ten minutes in length. According to Johnson, “to produce the show takes about 10 man hours per day between” the two of them. She said they joined the network because they wanted to be part of a platform where they could “continue the tone and style they currently maintain.”
The LTB Network’s regular content creators up until now have produced mostly audio podcast content, following the format of network founder Adam B. Levine, creator of the Let’s Talk Bitcoin! podcast.
The LTB Network has had a total of nearly 20 regular shows since the inception of the original Let’s Talk Bitcoin website in April 2013. Levine made the call for new shows to expand the website into a podcast network in December 2013. With the addition of The Daily Decrypt, 11 shows currently contribute regular content to the front page feed. The Let’s Talk Bitcoin website rebranded to the LTB Network in September.
Publisher David R. Allen said he was very pleased with the addition. “They have provided consistent material since day one, and we welcome the unique creativity Amanda and Pete bring to crypto-journalism.”
