    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 union of cryptocurrency and Wall Street is much like a Medieval arranged marriage: A little bit of wealth is at stake but everyone seems miserable and most people involved are in need of a bath. Few are as upset about the whole thing as those who are involved in crypto for ideological reasons—or, at least, those who say they are.
