TradeStation sponsors new Cheddar show exploring the cryptocurrency markets

PLANTATION, Fla., March 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cheddar, a leading post-cable network, announced today the launch of “Crypto Craze,” a 30-minute weekly cryptocurrency trading show sponsored by TradeStation, a leading online securities broker and futures commission merchant.

“Crypto Craze” will air on Cheddar Thursdays from 10:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. ET, live from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange.

“Crypto Craze” will explore trading and investment strategies in the dynamic world of cryptocurrencies. Prices of Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, and other digital assets were quite volatile in 2017, and piqued interest from investors, particularly millennial investors who make up a large portion of Cheddar’s target viewing audience.

In addition to covering tokens like Bitcoin, “Crypto Craze” will examine all things crypto, including blockchain technology, mining, ICOs, the ever-changing regulatory climate, opportunities and risks, and other issues that form the rapidly expanding universe of crypto. Viewers will hear from analysts, traders, legislators and others, as well as learn how to use TradeStation's platform to monitor cryptocurrency prices and trade Bitcoin futures contracts.

“Crypto Craze” is the second Cheddar show sponsored by TradeStation. Last summer, Cheddar premiered “The Long and the Short,” a 30-minute weekly stock trading show sponsored by TradeStation. Airing Tuesdays from 9:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. ET, “The Long and the Short” explores both near- and long-term potential trading strategies for millennials.

“We’re excited to sponsor Cheddar’s new ‘Crypto Craze’ show,” said John Bartleman, President of TradeStation Group, Inc. “TradeStation has been at the forefront in offering our customers the ability to trade Bitcoin futures on the CFE and CME exchanges. ‘Crypto Craze’ is another opportunity to showcase our award-winning* trading platform while exposing a new generation of investors to these products and the rapidly evolving cryptocurrency markets.”

“The ‘Crypto Craze’ is real and it’s here to stay,” said Jon Steinberg, founder and CEO of Cheddar. “Cheddar’s new show will give viewers real-time metrics with in-depth analysis of cryptocurrency, blockchain technology, regulation and initial coin offerings. It won’t be the old guard telling you about a phenomenon they don’t understand. The ‘Crypto Craze’ cuts through the noise and tells you what matters in the world of cryptocurrency.”

“Crypto Craze” is solely educational and informational, is not intended to give investment or trading advice or recommendations of any kind, and neither TradeStation nor Cheddar will be giving any such advice or recommendations. Not all products are suitable for all investors.
