News tips and pitches

You can email any news tips, press releases, stories and corrections to us [email protected]

If you have a startup you want to pitch, the following information would be good to include:

  • What, if any, venture capital backing do you have? Otherwise, how are you funded?
  • What are the backgrounds of the founding team?
  • What traction does your startup have?
  • What unique angle and potential does your startup bring to the cryptocurrency ecosystem?

Mike Butcher, Editor of TechCrunch Europe, has a great presentation and blog post on how best to pitch a publication and get your story covered. It's well worth checking out if you're a digital currency company looking for CoinDesk to cover your story.
