Asharq Business Sports and Asharq Business Crypto are the latest additions to Asharq News' growing digital portfolio.
Asharq News has launched two new social media services, Asharq Business Sports and Asharq Business Crypto, to serve the diverse interests of the Arabic-speaking public.
Asharq Business Sports reports on the business of sports, in the Middle East, North Africa and the world’s biggest sporting nations, utilising the new social media platform to address some of the most pressing news in the sports industry. The new service looks at how and where money is being spent, offering fans a comprehensive view on their favourite sports.
Commenting on the launch, Riad Hamade, Director of Business News at Asharq News, said: “From inception, Asharq News has been proactive and innovative in covering and presenting news to its audiences, no matter the platform. There was clearly a gap in covering sports from a business perspective and this aims at filling that gap.”
Asharq Business Crypto covers cryptocurrencies, blockchain technology or NFTs. The extreme fluctuations in cryptocurrency valuations, the debate over their significance and central banks’ response are some of the themes that will be covered with this service.
Hamade added: “Introducing the new cryptocurrency platform aims to enhance public understanding about this emerging trend in view of the widespread interest amongst all age-groups in the Arab world.”
The new Sports and Crypto services join a long list of offerings from Asharq Business with Bloomberg, including Asharq Business Technology, which focuses on modern technology and offers exclusive information on trends worldwide, Asharq Business Green, a digital offering spanning the web and social media, focusing on climate change, sustainability and green news, Asharq Bloomberg Businessweek provides the region’s business audience with a selection of curated Bloomberg Businessweek content, and Opinion that offers valuable perspectives on business-related subjects.
