Covering the technology, people, and culture of the cryptocurrency and blockchain world

Posts by Leo Jakobson

Leo Jakobson is a New York-based journalist and editor who has spent much of the last 15 years covering the employee engagement and recognition business for Incentive magazine, as well as the meetings and group travel industry for Successful Meetings. The perks of that job included the opportunity to stand on the Great Wall, be charged by an elephant in South Africa and fall up on a zero gravity flight. Before that he covered the East Coast side of the Internet boom and bust, which was both a bubble and a revolution. He has written about crime and politics in New York City—which are supposed to be different beats—as well as the small business industry, and about Apple computers. He didn’t listen to the friend who told him to buy Bitcoin at $100.

Disclosure: He owns no cryptocurrencies.
