    Exclusive: Inside the fight The Block’s Mike Dudas picked with Cointelegraph

    Allegations of “pay-to-play” cryptocurrency journalism downgraded to ad sales shenanigans.

    The feud-prone founder of cryptocurrency media site The Block has backed down from allegations that one of the largest news portals in the industry is guilty of “pay-to-play” journalism. In a Dec. 4 Twitter post, Mike Dudas called a newly announced partnership between Cointelegraph and a client “shady as hell.”

    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.
