Back in 2008, as the unemployment rate skyrocketed and world economies crashed and burned, an unlikely phoenix rose from the ashes. Bitcoin, introduced to the world through a mysterious whitepaper, showed the world that massive financial institutions were not essential for people to transact.
Skip a few years into the future and Bitcoin’s base technology, Blockchain, is now changing the world as we know it. Blockchain is basically a transparent and unchangeable log of all actions performed on a transactional chain.
Blockchain is still young, and its messaging requires nurturing as it glows increasing bright in the public spotlight. At Melrose PR, we feel a responsibility to take leadership, silence the skeptics, and ensure that the message is strong and clear – blockchain is the future of technology, business, and the entire world. Our goal at Melrose PR is to ensure that the same fundamental transparency of distributed technology is reflected is also manifested in the clarity of these company’s communication.
We help companies distill their essential message and give them a microphone to convey this to the world.
