Financial services company ADVFN has awarded BeInCrypto the Best Website for Cryptocurrency News at the 2021 International Financial Awards.
ADVFN cited BeInCrypto as a leading source for news in the cryptocurrency industry. The financial services company highlighted BIC’s commitment to transparency in “an industry rife with disingenuous reporting, unlabeled sponsored articles, and paid news masquerading as honest journalism.”
It also highlighted BIC as an initial adopter of Trust Project principles. The announcement also emphasized the diversity of BIC’s market, reporting in 10 different languages. Finally, it recognized BIC’s breadth of content offerings including news, charts, social media, a trading community, learn, and academy.
“I’m so proud of our team for winning the 2021 ADVFN International Financial Award for the Best Website for Cryptocurrency News,” said BIC CEO Alena Afanaseva. “I’d like to thank everyone for the hard work and effort they put in to help us achieve our goals, as well as our readers — we couldn’t have done it without you!”
