BTC Direct news becomes BLOX news

The news platform of BTC Direct, on which you are now reading this article, is going to change. By 6 September, this website will be taken over by our partner BLOX, the number one crypto app in the Benelux. You will receive crypto news as you are used to but in a different format.

What is BLOX?

BLOX is an app that makes cryptocurrency trading easier than ever. In the app, you can buy crypto, follow the prices live, and trade the most popular crypto currencies at lightning speed. On top of that, BLOX also has an official registration with the Dutch Central Bank.

What will change for me?

As of 6 September, the content team of BTC Direct will join the BLOX editorial team. They are ready to usher in a new era! This means that they will still bring you the latest crypton news daily, but for BLOX. You may have already seen the bright yellow BLOX banners in the articles.

All in one

BLOX is very excited about this acquisition. The company can now provide its users with the latest news in addition to trading crypto. This fits exactly into the vision of the future, in which development is paramount.

“This is of course super cool,” says Toon Schraven, head of marketing and communication at BLOX. “We now finally have our own fully-fledged news service in both text and image. I think the expansion of our content portfolio on YouTube, on the website, and in the app is useful for our existing and new users.”

“Our service stands out so far as the easiest and safest way to trade crypto, but the depth in terms of crypto education could be better. This step is one in the right direction to provide our users with more knowledge,” said Schraven.

“We are happy that the news channels are in good hands,” Mark Bakker, managing director of BTC direct, explains. “This means that the news can even (at a date to be determined) be presented in-app to its users. It offers added value that can be optimally exploited at BLOX.”

How do I stay up to date?

Don’t worry, you will still be able to find the most important and latest news here. That remains the main purpose of the news website and the YouTube channel. BLOX will ensure that the Netherlands and Flanders stay in touch with crypto in a fun and understandable way.

For the readers of the news website and the YouTube subscribers, little will change. These channels will only be given a new look. Would you like to stay informed about all crypto news? Then subscribe to the BLOX newsletter. You can also follow BLOX on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.
