Is CoinDesk to crypto what Levi jeans was to the California goldrush? Kevin Worth, CEO at CoinDesk Inc. will talk about building and scaling a company for the emerging crypto economy.
Kevin Worth came to CoinDesk in 2017 to evolve a 4 year old blog about Bitcoin into a full scale digital media, events and data company dedicated to the entire crypto sector.
Today, CoinDesk consists of three integrated business lines
In this 60-minute fireside chat which will be held at CoinDesk’s New York offices, Kevin will talk about the management issues that the CEO of a new media company needs to be good at:
Kevin will also talk about his particular case with CoinDesk:
In an early interview with Digiday, Kevin explained, “We’ve been scaling the company editorially…We’ve hired a lot of journalists in different time zones and different beats…. Crypto and blockchain [are thought of] as two separate worlds. We cover them both but we cover far more than that. The narrative of price going up and down is a side show. What we’re doing every day is trying to chronicle the people who are building the scaffolding of this decentralized internet, both on the corporate and entrepreneurial sides. That narrative has a long road ahead of it.”
Although CoinDesk is owned by Digital Currency Group (DCG), the company makes clear that it “operates entirely independently of its parent company. DCG has no involvement in editorial or content decisions.”
