Communicating with the press can be intimidating, open your organization up to further scrutiny, and create a security concern. Anonymity for your executives and leadership can be critical to maintaining normal business operations. Bitcoin and Blockchain are surrounded by bad reporting, conspiracy theories, and the misinformed idea that criminal activity is rampant. Having an advocate to represent you to the press can convey your position professionally, maintain anonymity for your founders and leaders, and decrease interruptions due to unwanted attention.
Speaking to the press comes with a lot of risks. Reporters, frequently have hidden agendas and may edit your interview to better serve the story they are trying to present. While most reporters are interested in learning more about what you do, it can be hard to tell whether your words will be twisted to tell a different story. Most importantly, appearing on the nightly news while standing in front of your mining operation, or Bitcoin ATM may entice bad-actors to target you or your operations.
