We are excited to announce that CoinDesk has been acquired by Digital Currency Group (DCG), a leader in the bitcoin and blockchain industry and one of CoinDesk's earliest investors and supporters.
Since CoinDesk launched in 2013, our audience has trusted us to be the leading publication of record for the digital currency industry. As this industry evolves and new players emerge, it's clear that the informational needs of the individuals and companies in this space are increasing.
DCG's resources and vision will enable the CoinDesk team to keep pace with those growing needs and continue delivering the top-quality journalism our readers have come to expect. In addition, DCG's expertise in marketing, sales and product development will enable our team to expand its current offerings, including events and premium content.
We ran our inaugural conference, Consensus 2015, last September in New York City. It was a resounding success (just check out the feedback and see who attended), with many commenting it was the best industry conference they had ever seen.
In addition to delivering a high-quality speaker lineup and editorial content, our goal for Consensus 2015 was to provide attendees and sponsors with networking opportunities that couldn't be found at any other industry gathering.
We've already confirmed several speakers and registration is now open.
