Hacker Noon, the independent tech media site, has acquired Crypto Disrupted, the blockchain and cryptocurrency podcast.

“Crypto Disrupted has built a high-quality community,” said Hacker Noon Founder & CEO David Smooke. “We’re very excited to put more production resources and distribution efforts into a podcast together.”

Over the last calendar year (Aug 17 - Aug 18), Hacker Noon stories have generated 95,000,000+ pageviews. To date, this has been text stories, but in a recent Hacker Noon survey, 71% of readers said they would like to listen to a Hacker Noon podcast.

“I am honored to be the host of the Hacker Noon podcast,” said startup founder and tech journalist Trent Lapinski. “We’re still going to be covering blockchain, just now we will be able to cover it with a larger audience, as well as other emerging technologies, hacking, and entrepreneurship.”

Crypto Disrupted will still be releasing already recorded episodes, then will remain on YouTube and as an archive.
