What is Decrypt? 

Decrypt is a rapidly growing media company for the Web3 age. We aim to be both a source of news and a guide to the radical new businesses being built on blockchain. We have a small team of fewer than a dozen people, but are reaching well over a million people a month.

Decrypt is fully funded by ConsenSys, an international blockchain venture studio. However, we are editorially independent from it, meaning we practice journalism. While we are intrigued by the possibilities of Web3 technologies, we believe the competing systems being built are nascent and as yet untested. Our role as journalists is to present the facts and serve the truth to our rapidly growing base of readers.

We are also experimenting with blockchain technology and, by working here, you will be part of a team on the forefront of innovation in publishing.
