Google Report on CCN Traffic
CCN was founded in the summer of 2013 as CryptoCoinsNews. We have been around for six years. We are (were?) the crypto-related news site with the highest amount of traffic worldwide. Although CoinDesk and Cointelegraph have been friendly competitors with us the past six years for the #1 Alexa spot.
The CCN team also noted that the June update had a negative impact on the traffic of the aforementioned CoinDesk and CoinTelegraph, the traffic of which decreased by more than 20%.
It should be noted that soon after the rebranding and the change of the name, CCN often published news that was indirectly related to the blockchain industry, for example, related to the global economy, politics, the US-China trade war, etc.
Now CCN intends to reorient its team of more than 60 people to work with the HVY journalistic platform.
