February 2023 Media Report

, March 3, 2023

As the shortest month of the year, February barely sticks around long enough to remove its (winter) coat. A quick stop en route to spring. But despite the brief encounter, CEX.IO enjoyed another successful run of media coverage, positive third-party reviews, and generative thought-leadership.

Our Market Research Team helped kick off the month when AP News picked up the release of our Q4 2022 COMPASS report. Chronicling Bitcoin 14 years into its meteoric rise, the report also examines how the foundational crypto asset’s core infrastructure has helped ensure its lasting good health. Alongside CEX.IO University and our Weekly Crypto Highlights, the COMPASS series has become another cornerstone in our ongoing study of the crypto space.

Ever the champion of education, our Founder and CEO, Oleksandr Lutskevych, brought his wisdom to the Cointelegraph Innovation Circle for a discussion on how crypto companies can better share knowledge with their communities. Recognizing the fast-paced nature of the dight asset space, Alex highlighted where industry leaders could practice more effective stewardship with crypto curious participants.

Alex made a second trip to the Cointelegraph Innovation Circle at the close of the month to discuss how crypto companies can use Twitter to responsibly grow their communities. Pulling from years of experience watching social media bravado collide with market realities, Alex emphasized the importance of remaining accountable when cultivating an online following.

CEX.IO also received new and updated reviews from both established and emerging outlets in February. The inaugural issue of CrowdFundJunction’s new digital rag BlockWorld Magazine featured an overview of the industry’s major players, and highlighted CEX.IO’s commitment to security and customer service. Additionally, Investopedia arrived at another 4.5/5 star rating for the second year running, citing our intuitive product UI and commitment to regulatory compliance.

AP News: CEX.IO’s Newest Market Analysis Report Explores Bitcoin’s Legacy and Impact 14 Years After Debut

On February 2, CEX.IO Founder and CEO, Oleksandr Lutskevych, was quoted by AP News following the release of our Q4 2022 COMPASS report. With the industry still recovering from a tumultuous series of events, the report examines how Bitcoin remains a stalwart of financial hope. Additionally, the report credits Bitcoin’s ingenious network programming for bolstering the asset’s good health throughout periods of market unrest.

“‘’As Bitcoin enters its 14th year on the market, a lot of what we’re seeing is providing fresh optimism,’ said Oleksandr Lutskevych, CEX.IO’s Founder and CEO. ‘The amount of supply held by users who historically HODL their coins, and the age of BTC on-chain suggest that conviction has never been stronger.’”

BlockWorld Magazine: Issue #01

On February 3, DAO-driven crypto and NFT venture capital firm CrowdFundJunction released the first issue of its digital publication BlockWorld Magazine. Featuring industry leaders from across the crypto and DeFi space, CEX.IO received recognition from the emerging outlet for our ongoing commitment to providing intuitive, community-centric services.

“CEX.IO is a well-known & reliable website to purchase Bitcoins, ETH, and other cryptos using a debit or credit card. Currently, there are 132 coins and 245 trading pairs available on the exchange. CEX.IO’s daily volume is reported to be at $2,487,130.16. It also provides staking features. Transaction fees are pretty standard. They have taken care of security, and the support is pretty amazing – one thing that is not so common in the cryptocurrency industry.”

Investopedia: CEX.IO Review

On February 15, tenured financial advisory institution Investopedia revisited its glowing 2022 review of CEX.IO to reaffirm its credibility for their readership. Once again citing our proven track record of sound regulatory relationships and the accessibility of our crypto products, Investopedia upheld our 4.5/5 star rating for the second year in a row.

Cointelegraph: 16 ways blockchain and crypto leaders can better educate prospective users

On February 21, CEX.IO Founder and CEO, Oleksandr Lutskevych, joined the Cointelegraph Innovation Circle to discuss how crypto companies can better educate their communities. Having recently achieved a PhD in Economic Sciences, Alex understands the value of being a lifelong learner. In turn, he offered timely insight alongside a cadre of fellow industry leaders on how they can better impart their knowledge across the ecosystem.

“Due to its pace and scope, the crypto ecosystem generates an incredible amount of noise. It can be overwhelming trying to parse reliable information, especially when much of the focus is on value-based assessments. Instead, education should emphasize the ‘how’ and the ‘why’ of emerging technologies and situate them within a changing world. Greater context can only stand to enrich one’s crypto journey.”

Cointelegraph: 13 tips for using Twitter to build and grow your company’s community

On February 28, our CEO returned to the Cointelegraph Innovation Circle to discuss how crypto companies can use Twitter to responsibly grow their communities. Having witnessed the rise and fall of many magnetic personalities during his tenure in the digital asset space, Alex emphasized the importance of striking the right balance between fun and accountability when pursuing online engagement.

“Despite the rise of reels in social media platforms, Twitter remains the most efficient way to communicate crypto news and updates. Crypto companies that remain in regular contact and keep their communities informed and engaged stand to gain a wider audience. However, where bravado can be leveraged to gain followers, it’s no match for market realities. You can have fun, but stay accountable.”
