Emerging technologies at the intersection of business, economy, and politics.

 We start with blockchain.

We were born July 2018 as the market headed into what is now known as the Crypto Winter. Distrust of ICOs and cryptocurrencies, confusion about blockchain, exacerbated by pay-to-play coverage of the industry — and things looked dire. But these are exactly the reasons why we created Forkast.News.

Our goal is simple. We want to help global audiences connect at a deeper level with the stories and companies that are reshaping the future – in language we can all understand.

Forkast.News aggregates and centralizes quality content, curated from experts and industry contributors.

We want you to engage in technology that will change the world. You might not understand it today, but leave that to us… that’s our job and our mission. Why? For our generation and those that follow, if we don’t understand the future, how can we see our place in it? Knowledge empowers. This matters deeply to us.

At Forkast.News, we believe that those who build today will guide our tomorrows. Technology shouldn’t be intimidating, nor confusing. It should be inspiring. We bring that quality, credicbility, and trust to a new frontier.

In the Press

Our Team

The kind of talent it takes to understand the enormous technology, vision, and science behind distributed ledger technologies will take teams of talented and skilled technologists and professionals.

At Forkast.News, the journalist is only one component. Our newsroom consists of journalists supported by industry experts who provide deeper insights to every story we write: regulatory, finance, tech, industry, and more. We curate and continue to grow our network of expert contributors and teams who help us develop content that expands understanding.

This means we can utilize our other editorial resources amplified by technology to dig deeper, uncover original stories, and gain exclusive insights.
