December 20, 2016, Road Town, BVI – Bitcoin PR Buzz, a well-established Bitcoin press release distributor has partnered with the Cointelegraph to launch the “Blockchain Company of the Year 2016” award. Winner of the award will be decided based on a month-long community voting contest that will go on until January 20, 2017.

The Blockchain Company of the Year 2016 award winning company will receive a 1 BTC prize along with coverage on the Cointelegraph, a Premium PR package worth $879 from Bitcoin PR Buzz and a certificate. Bitcoin PR Buzz encourages the cryptocurrency community to vote and nominate candidates that they feel are a vital part of the blockchain ecosystem. Cointelegraph, one of the industry’s largest news sites will act as a control judge for the competition.

All blockchain companies are welcome to participate in the competition, either by getting nominated or by submitting the entry themselves. “Blockchain company” is a broad term and includes companies and organisations that directly or indirectly uses blockchain technology or supplies products specifically for cryptocurrency users.

More and more companies are embracing blockchain technology and every one of them are contributing to the adoption of cryptocurrencies and the blockchain; the most fundamentally disruptive technology since the emergence of the Internet itself.

Bitcoin PR Buzz hopes that the contest will bring attention to the industry as whole while giving the community a chance to award a deserving company with the title “Blockchain Company of the Year 2016.” Johanna, COO and co-founder of Bitcoin PR Buzz explains:

“Bitcoin PR Buzz has seen hundreds of cryptocurrency start-ups and projects over the years. Innovative, hardworking and passionate teams seldom get the attention they deserve. Hence we are looking to award a company that has had a major impact on the blockchain ecosystem and we feel like no one could be a better judge of that than the cryptocurrency community itself.”
