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 editorial Slack rooms.
We are funded by ConsenSys, an Ethereum incubator, but we are both editorially independent and technologically agnostic.
Writers and their crypto holdings
Most 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.
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.
