Bakkt Q2 Earnings Report, 2023 | Media Relations & Social Amplification August 2023
Bakkt has a strong reputation operating as one of the few publicly traded companies in the crypto sector. In a time when crypto firms face constant public scrutiny and regular attack by regulators, Bakkt has carved out its position as a secure, professional, and compliance-forward partner to institutions. Having worked with Ditto PR since early 2023, Bakkt tasked the agency with leading communications for its Q2 earnings report in August. Ditto was responsible for developing and executing a media strategy that would accurately tell the story of Bakkt’s growth with proper positioning to an audience of investors.
Ditto leveraged its deep experience working with institutional crypto providers – from Anchorage Digital to Ledger Enterprise to Floating Point Group – to formulate our approach to messaging and targeting the right outlets to tell Bakkt’s growth story.
With this strategy in place, we secured an interview for Bakkt CFO Karen Alexander with Lisa Mattackal at Reuters, as well as coverage in top crypto trades including CoinDesk and The Block. We helped Bakkt further amplify its media coverage by developing social copy for the company’s LinkedIn and Twitter.
As the result of Ditto’s targeted approach, Bakkt was able to clearly convey its positioning as a compliance-forward B2B crypto partner and custody provider well-positioned for long-term success.
Bakkt’s head of communications shared with Ditto:
“This is the best earnings coverage and visibility we’ve had to date.”
