Decrypt was incubated inside ConsenSys Mesh from 2018 to 2022, and in April 2022 raised $10 million in funding and spun out. These are our 22 investors:
XBTO Humla Ventures

Angel Investors and Syndicates
Business vs. Editorial Side
Decrypt has strict "church and state" policies to ensure the business side of the company cannot exercise influence over the editorial staff. This includes excluding business and ad sales staff from our editorial Slack rooms. Our staff reporters are not involved in sponsored content.
Writers and Their Crypto Holdings
Many Decrypt writers and editors own a small amount of cryptocurrency, in part to ensure they understand the industry they cover. All of our writers and editors disclose their crypto holdings on their author bio page—just click the byline at the top of any story.
If a writer owns a significant amount of a specific coin (other than Bitcoin and Ethereum), they are discouraged from reporting on it. We define "significant" as having a value of more than $1,000.
We update the disclosures on author pages quarterly.
