48 Blockchain/Crypto News Outlet You Should Know

The author's former career as a television journalist

Having worked with blockchain/crypto companies since 2017, I have seen news outlets specializing in the coverage of the industry go from a handful to over one hundred! 

I reluctantly began doing PR/Marketing in the industry because a good friend of mine was actively investing in companies that needed help with branding and garnering press attention. My reluctance stemmed from my background as a journalist of several years in the U.S. and from my years doing PR for "traditional" venture-backed companies, mostly based in Silicon Valley. 

I wasn't blind to the fact that the industry was full of scammers and bad actors (which sadly continues to this day). I didn't want to be associated with that. Everywhere you looked, these new startups had websites and presentation materials rife with typos and fake press articles from disreputable news outlets.

I knew, at the very least, I could make a difference for credible startup founders and those actually building great blockchain applications and technology.

I'm so glad I did, because the energy and innovation from entrepreneurs in the space is palpable and similar to when I first started working in Silicon Valley in 2006. 


While I have worked in-house for Huobi, leading their PR and Communications effort in english-speaking territories, many of my clients are either Binance Labs-backed startups, backed by Polygon's co-founder Sandeep Nailwal, or backed by Kenzi Wang, with Symbolic Capital.

Below is a list of general crypto news outlets – I have other lists that include more focused categories, such as gaming or finance – that I reach out to on behalf of my clients. I have also listed their X (Twitter) followers as I think it's a good benchmark of their reach, along with their self-written "about" synopsis.

Top Crypto News Outlets

The premier crypto news outlets, in my opinion, are Coindesk and Decrypt, followed closely by The Block.

Over the years, I have deleted many outlets from my contact list for asking for money to publish an article, which is unethical, and no credible news outlet would ever do. However, I have still included Cointelegraph, where one of their writers has asked for money from me in the past. Cointelegraph has also been the go-to news outlets for startups paying for the publication of a press release, which the startup then uses as a testament of credibility from "coverage" -- which it is not. 🤦🏻‍♂️


I have not listed sites like Bitcoin.com, who have a conflict of interest, as they also offer services to buy, sell, and trade cryptocurrency. It's difficult to be impartial, or neutral, when your underlying business model is to get people to sign up for your service and buy crypto from companies you are reporting on. 

The list below is in alphabetical order, split into "top-tier" news outlets -- in my opinion -- and "everyone else". While some sites did not make my arbitrary "top-tier" list, that may also be because they focus a bit more on Bitcoin (Bitcoin Magazine), Binance (BSC News), DeFi (The Defiant), or on a particular continent (Techpoint Africa).
