The 2019 SEC Fintech Conference

*The following thoughts are entirely my own, and this article has not been sponsored by any company or entity mentioned hereafter.

I’ve worked in a lot of different verticals.

Just this past year, in fact, I had the pleasure of joining forces with startups in the tech, healthcare, e-commerce, and insurance sectors.

As a self-employed marketer, having a diverse client base keeps me happy (and paid).

So when I had the pleasure of meeting the team at BitLeague, I’ll admit, I was excited for the usual reasons.

I thought:

Cryptocurrency would be an amazing vertical to help promote growth.


Traditional marketing is no longer effective.

If you’re a digital marketer in 2018, you probably know this already.

Heck- if you’ve had access to a computer, a tablet, or a smartphone at any point within the last 5 years, then you, too, probably know this.

I’d personally like to think that this is because people, as a whole, have gotten smarter over recent years- but I suppose that this shift in consumption could also be a product of the conflation of increased accessibility to information and the renewed D.I.Y. spirit that seems to have taken the world by storm within…
