Capitalizing On Conferences: Bitfair To Attend This Year's New York Token Summit

The link to the original content can be found at the end of our message below.

In the past Forimmediaterelease circulated releases distributed through the Cision and PR Newswire system on a complimentary basis and as a service to our readers.

PR Newswire now claims copyright on press releases distributed through the Cision and PR Newswire system.

Their pitch: “Share your brand’s story around the world,” but that’s where it ends. When eTN, as a media outlet for travel and tourism news, tried to publish a release distributed to journalists by PR Newswire, they were told the release must be removed immediately. In addition, PR Newswire threatened eTurboNews with their legal counsel claiming copyright of releases from PR Newswire or Cision circulates on behalf of clients.

Here is the letter received by eTurboNews from a PR Newswire/Cision director:

“Subject: removal request

Please immediately remove the following posting from your site: [website name removed]

PR Newswire distributed this release on behalf of our client [client name removed]

[company name removed] is understandably upset that the release is posted on your site, tagged with Travel & Tourism Industry release: at the start of the text.

As you can see below in the release that we distributed that we did not include any coding or tagging on our end to indicate that the release is relevant to the Travel & Tourism industry: [website link removed]

Please completely remove the posting from your site as soon as possible, and confirm when complete.

Additionally, I am unable to find a licensing agreement between PR Newswire and eTN, or any other associated websites. If you do have a licensing agreement in which PR Newswire has licensed your sites to publish our content, please send a copy to me as soon as possible.

If you do not have a licensing agreement, we request that you remove all PR Newswire content from all of your sites. If I should have our Counsel send an official request, please let me know to whom it should be resent.

Many thanks,

[name removed]

Director CISION PR Newswire”

It appears PR Newswire is not only charging a steep amount of money from companies wanting their releases circulated through their system to journalists but also is now trying to license this content as their copyrighted material. eTN receives more than 2,000 story ideas on a daily basis, we don’t rely on PR Newswire for content, and for sure we won’t pay them a licensing fee for a ‘privilege’ to publish such content.

We urge everyone using PR Newswire services to take a look at this article explaining their modus of operation and misleading reports: .

PR Newswire is now directly competing with publications. This will result in a drastic drop in pick-ups. They are obviously upset with the attention we received for stoties and the visibility we were able to record way ahead of PR Newswire when it comes to our industry segment.

Journalists of any publication should be warned to consider taking content from PR Newswire or Cision.

Therefore, in the future, if you would like us to consider your press releases for publication, you will need to send it to us directly: For more information, visit: .

NEW YORK, May 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — In its efforts to build support for cryptocurrency derivative trading, Bitfair is announcing their project to investors far and wide. The platform’s Co-Founders, Thomas van der Spuy and Greg van der Spuy, attended this year’s New York Token Summit. Held to raise awareness of and support for cryptocurrencies and similar digital technologies, the Token Summit was immensely helpful for Bitfair and attracted a broad base of investors.

This year’s Token Summit is the third of its kind. Held from May 16th through the 17th, the event brought together researchers, entrepreneurs, investors, executives, regulatory officials, and countless other stakeholders. These individuals had a chance to meet with one another, learn about different products and opportunities, and discuss a host of topics relating to the future of digital money.

Bitfair benefited immensely from participating in this conference. The platform is taking a unique approach to cryptocurrency investments, allowing its users to invest in derivatives rather than the coins themselves. This has myriad financial benefits, but investors can only take advantage of them if they understand the full value of the platform. In appearing at the New York Token Summit, the van der Spuy’s were able to provide entrepreneurs and investors from around the world all the information they need to get involved.

Banking on Bitfair

As a digital asset trading platform, Bitfair is notable for creating a framework to exchange cryptocurrency derivatives. This has a number of advantages over buying and selling the tokens themselves. In particular, it allows investors to make money off downward token price movements. This means if an investor has good reason to believe that a currency is overvalued, they can buy futures that will increase in value as that currency declines. This allows them to leverage a wider range of data and insights about each currency and thus construct a more diversified investment fund.

Bitfair hopes to set the stage for a bold new chapter in cryptocurrency investments, where investors can make safer and more profitable decisions than ever before. The platform strives to make itself known to large numbers of investors and convince them to begin buying futures. In addition to designing smart contracts, price APIs, and other advanced features to aid current investors, Bitfair must attract attention to the opportunities it is creating.

Summit Solutions

The New York Token Summit offered the perfect opportunity for Bitfair to promote its cutting-edge futures platform. Organized by 1 confirmation, JM3 Capital, and the New York City Economic Development Corporation, this event discussed every aspect of cryptocurrencies, including the economics of them, the regulations that affect them, and the best strategies for buying and trading them. By attending the conference, the van der Spuy’s were able to to rapidly increase the number of investors and companies interested in participating in the exchanges.
