Observer Media tech reporter Brady Dale has joined CoinDesk Inc., the leading digital media, events and information services company for the blockchain industry.

The newest addition to CoinDesk’s New York-based editorial team, Dale has previously covered new technologies at leading media brands including Fortune, and the Observer, where he emerged as an early voice in covering bitcoin and other crypto assets.

Dale’s hiring comes amid a wave of growth for CoinDesk (founded in 2013), that has seen it become one of the top websites globally amidst spiking interest in distributed ledger and blockchain-based innovations.

“Tech journalism led me to innovations at the edge, but I’m confident cryptocurrency and blockchain are here to stay,” Dale said.

At CoinDesk, Dale will focus on covering distributed technologies, initial coin offerings and other aspects of the emerging token economy.

Dale’s hiring follows the addition of other leading sector journalists to the CoinDesk team, including PaymentsSource veteran Bailey Reutzel as U.S. editor and former American Banker editor-in-chief Marc Hochstein as managing editor.

Looking ahead to 2017, CoinDesk is now seeking applications for full-time journalists in Europe and abroad.


The leader in blockchain news, CoinDesk is a media outlet that strives for the highest journalistic standards and abides by a strict set of editorial policies. CoinDesk is an independent operating subsidiary of Digital Currency Group, which invests in cryptocurrencies and blockchain startups.
