In addition, Jerrick's Vocal platform added two new community sites to its portfolio. "Our new community Trader ( is all about the financial markets and will provide professional traders, analysts and Wall Street enthusiasts alike an open environment to vocalize their thoughts and perspective.

What is important is to provide a forum for blockchain discussion," commented founder Justin Maury, Jerrick's head of product, creative and design. "Our 32nd community, The Chain ( is all about blockchain and cryptocurrency and will provide a voice for influencers in the space and a well needed opportunity for many of us to become better educated on the topic."
