As Cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology continue to experience increased consumer and investor interest, mainstream media outlets have focused their attention on the industry as well. News giant Reuters has apparently also taken note of that increased attention, and will now report on stories about the blockchain and digital currency in one of two new coverage sections launched by the company on Monday.
Those two new sections include The Future of Money and Cyber Risk, which the news agency says are “topics that are of critical importance to the Reuters audience.” In a statement published yesterday, the company described its goals in organizing this news content into those two specific sections:
“Each section on Reuters.com will serve as a hub for all things related to the topics across text and multimedia, to give readers all the essential news and information on the subject. With dozens of reporters focused on reporting on these areas around the world, there will be a wealth of coverage and rich multimedia across both sections.”
According to Reuters' statement, The Future of Money section will include stories and analysis of new fintech innovations, covering everything from PayPal and other payment systems to Bitcoin and distributed ledger technology. The Cyber Risk section will be devoted to news coverage of cybercrime and cyber-terror, regulatory activities, policy debates, and consumer privacy concerns.
