(Seattle, WA) - January 23, 2018Unikrn, a leading esports brand and creators of UnikoinGold (UKG), the most successful decentralized crypto token in esports and gaming, will begin distributing their weekly broadcasts to listeners of Dash Radio, DJ Skee’s digital radio broadcasting platform with over 80 original stations and millions of listeners. The channel, “Unikrn Radio,” will focus on cryptocurrency and esports content directly from Unikrn, a company that’s on the bleeding edge of both industries. The show will air weekly with 60-minute segments starting on January 29, 2018 at 2pm PT.

The first series will be hosted by Rahul Sood — serial entrepreneur, founder of VoodooPC, creator of Microsoft Ventures, and CEO of Unikrn — and Kingsley Edwards — VP of Business Development at Unikrn and a long-time Bitcoin advocate and user. They will be joined by special guests and experts, and will offer Q&A sessions for members of Unikrn’s growing Discord community. Unikrn’s Dash Radio listeners will also become eligible for UnikoinGold and other giveaways, exclusive first-access to news and a cornucopia of content for enthusiasts of crypto and esports.

Future shows will offer additional insight and entertainment from leading voices from the blockchain and esports communities and the broader tech space. Unikrn’s current content team includes one of esports’ top editorial teams, a Berlin-based broadcast studio for live esports coverage and analysis, on-site coverage of the world’s most successful esports events and a Las Vegas studio for video and audio productions.

Rahul Sood, Unikrn’s CEO and the first show’s co-host, said, “Whether it’s letting gamers earn UnikoinGold by playing the world’s best competitive video games or creating the world’s greatest esports brand, we are obsessed with exceptionalism. We dive deep into everything we do, which is why we are amplifying our reach through Dash Radio’s considerable listenership.  We want everyone to know what’s happening in crypto and esports. What excites me most is knowing that nobody else could do it like Unikrn can, and it’s pretty damn awesome to be working with Dash to blow it up.”

DJ Skee (Scott Keeney), Dash Radio founder, said, “Dash radio was created with the vision to bring the best curated listening and discovery experiences to fans without radio towers or subscription fees. These aren't soulless computer playlists, it’s the content you need, brought to you by the selectors you love. We're excited for Unikrn to extend this offering to their audience of esports fans and UnikoinGold users, and we’re proud to bring their expertise to our millions of listeners — many of whom have requested a show just like this!”

Dash Radio brings distribution options to every corner of the listening market across a litany of devices and vehicles. The list of eligible devices includes: Amazon Alexa, iOS, Android and Amazon Fire mobile devices, Apple TV, Chromecast, Amazon Fire Stick, Pluto TV, Apple Carplay, Android Auto, AT&T Drive, MirrorLink, aftermarket products from Pioneer, Bosch, Clarion, Harman and cars from most of the world’s major manufacturers such as GM, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Acura, Chrysler, Honda, Maserati, Mazda, Porsche, Scion, Subaru, Hyundai, Kia, Buick, Jaguar, Land Rover and more.
