In the summer of 2023, consumer fintech company Eco hired Ditto to announce the launch of its onchain wallet, Beam. Ditto was tasked with developing messaging and a media strategy that would resonate with both a mainstream tech audience as well as the crypto community.
The challenge for Ditto was to cut through the noise of countless Web2 and Web3 payment wallets on the market, and to introduce Beam in a way that set it apart from the competition while building up early traction and awareness.
Ditto has extensive experience working with crypto payments companies and wallet providers – including the original Ethereum wallet, MyEtherWallet – which informed our deep understanding of the digital payments landscape.
Ditto worked with Eco to position the Beam wallet as “the most cashlike digital payment experience yet.” We created a media strategy for the launch that included outreach to press targets spanning tech, crypto and payments, as well as podcast and broadcast opportunities.
For a tech audience, we focused on Eco’s impressive backing and advantages over Web2 payment apps like Venmo. For a crypto-native audience, we highlighted how Beam leverages breakthroughs in crypto like Account Abstraction to offer a groundbreaking p2p payment solution that delivers on one of blockchain technology’s original promises.
For the launch of Beam, Ditto leveraged its tier-one media relationships and expertise to secure an interview and full-length feature in TechCrunch. In addition, the Ditto team secured feature coverage in all five of the top crypto trades: CoinDesk, Cointelegraph, The Block, Blockworks and Decrypt. Following the day of the launch, we continued amplifying Eco and Beam through broadcast opportunities with CoinDesk TV, Nasdaq, and CNBC.
