Upcoming and Past Divi Press Interviews

People often ask me how we will achieve mass adoption. How will millions of people find out about Divi with hundreds of cryptocurrencies out there? While there are many ways, our primary secret weapon is Heidi Krupp and her stellar team in New York, who have been quietly working in the background to line up influencers and press for us.

Although Divi isn’t yet well known in the crypto scene, no smaller cryptocurrency has achieved anywhere near the mainstream recognition that The Divi Project has, with interviews on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, at Nasdaq, articles in Forbes, Entrepreneur, Inc, and many more TV appearances, as shown below.
