In January, it was announced that CoinDesk, which reports on the realm of digital currency, had been acquired by U.K.’s Digital Currency Group. And in May, the site will host its flagship event Consensus 2016 at New York’s Marriott Marquis Hotel.
Adding to this already eventful year is another bit of news shared today. Michael del Castillo (pictured), formerly with the New York Business Journal, has joined the CoinDesk editorial staff:
“Michael’s addition to the CoinDesk team is consistent with our mission to better serve our readers with high-quality, independent journalism,” CoinDesk editor Pete Rizzo said. “At a time of great hype, Michael’s work will undoubtedly be an asset to entrepreneurs, investors and policymakers seeking to better navigate the industry.”
“As a reader, I’ve long turned to CoinDesk for the best-informed, breaking news stories in the bitcoin and blockchain industry,” said del Castillo. “With new, imaginative applications of the technology implemented daily, I aim to continue the publication’s history of breaking stories that impact its audience.”
Del Castillo has also written for The New Yorker and is the founder of website Literary Manhattan. He starts at CoinDesk next week.
