- Blockchain and cryptocurrency adoption in the global media and advertising industry is expected to grow by 81 percent to over $1 billion by 2023
- Adoption is still lagging in the newswire industry, although this market segment is anticipated to expand and generate over $900 million in revenue in the U.S. by the end of the year
- As an early adopter, CryptoCurrencyWire is leading the way for other newswire services to implement cryptocurrency payment solutions for added convenience and flexibility
In today’s world, more and more services can be purchased with cryptocurrency. Decentralization and immediacy of payment are just two of the benefits that draw many individuals and even businesses to this alternative to national currencies.
According to a global study covering 38 countries, the number of unique users who currently have cryptocurrency wallets falls between 2.9 million and 5.8 million people. There are anywhere between 5.8 million and 11.5 million digital wallets that are currently active, and the number is increasing on a daily basis.
These numbers show that cryptocurrency payments are the future of just about every industry. More and more sectors are adopting cryptocurrency payments to give customers flexibility. Newswire and press release companies, however, seem to be lagging behind, although blockchain adoption in media, advertising and the global entertainment industry as a whole is anticipated to grow from $51.4 million in 2018 to slightly over $1 billion in 2023 – a massive compound annual growth rate of 81.1 percent.
The adoption of blockchain technologies in the field will be powered by the demand for eliminating intermediaries between content creators and end users, as well as a higher need for secure and fast payments for such services.
North America is forecast to have the largest market share when it comes to blockchain adoption in media and content distribution channels. The region has already witnessed increased investment in such solutions, the effective use of blockchain technologies in media and the emergence of an advertising vertical for various applications.
There are still limited options when it comes to press release services that accept cryptocurrency payments and offer reliable, innovative solutions to their clients, although the industry itself is bound to grow exponentially, according to industry forecasts. The newswire industry in the U.S. is anticipated to generate total revenue of $912 million by the end of 2019. The industry currently employs 3,297 people, with core press release distribution services, multimedia, financial and regulatory press release services making up the bulk of client demands.
