Metrics & Milestones

The Nugget’s News Crypto & Finance Podcast continued going from strength to strength in January. Not only did it climb to the #11 spot in Apple Podcasts’ business category, it also notched up its 1,000,000th download of all time.

Industry Involvement

Earlier in the month, Alex appeared as a guest on Real Vision Interview, where he talked about all things Ethereum with CEO Raoul Pal.

“Bitcoin is very much the one true shot we have at a new currency or global money reserve asset. Ethereum, to me, is completely different. It is a technology play. So it’s like trying to compare the U.S. dollar to Google. They are just so different.” – Alex Saunders

To help lift the industry standard when it comes to trust and transparency, we decided to implement a material cryptocurrency holdings disclosure policy. All full-time Nugget’s News employees are now following this policy and have agreed to share their material holdings with the public.

Business Development

We continue investing into our Member Platform, last month hiring our second full-time developer. When it comes to the platform, two current focus areas are (i) improving content discoverability and (ii) making the platform easier to navigate.

The Collective Shift Knowledge Centre received a face-lift in January. It now has predictive search functionality as well as a glossary and acronyms page. We continue to add content to the Knowledge Centre as well as make UX improvements.

It was great to have had the Melbourne team get together for our yearly launch dinner. Together, we set the vision for 2021 and spent some time getting to know each other better.

We ran a member survey during January and were delighted to get so much invaluable feedback from more than 600 members. This has really helped us prioritise the workload of our developers to give members more of what they want. 

In Closing

With Bitcoin back in the headlines, it’s exciting times here in the crypto space. Our hard-working team is more driven than ever to teach the world about cryptocurrency and open finance.
