    EXCLUSIVE: Cointelegraph finally gets new editors

    Veteran investigative journalist Jay Cassano is now editor in chief, Dylan Love is head of news

    Crypto news site Cointelegraph now has two new editors. Veteran journalist Jay Cassano will be taking the helm of the publication as editor in chief, while Dylan Love will be head of news. Though still widely read in crypto, Cointelegraph had been officially rudderless since mid-September. That’s when executive editor Olivia Capozzalo and head of news Molly Jane Zuckerman simultaneously quit. As proof for those who believe crypto journalism is one giant revolving door, Zuckerman has been a contributor to Modern Consensus, a role her replacement at Cointelegraph used to hold for about nine months.

    The New York Times jerks the blockchain

    The New York Times might be jumping into the blockchain business. Despite publishing an article about blockchain-based media platform Civil’s failed initial token offering titled, “Alas, the Blockchain Won’t Save Journalism After All,” the Times on March 13 posted a job listing for a “Lead, Blockchain Exploration” position which it described as “a forward-looking leader who will help envision and design a blockchain-based proof of concept for news publishers.”
