About Crypto Briefing
Crypto Briefing exists to advocate for the safe and responsible integration of blockchain technology and cryptocurrency into mainstream life.
Our goal is to grow the crypto community – to help new converts understand the basics, and to help more experienced enthusiasts separate the good from the bad and the ugly.
We are also committed to the principles of equal opportunity defined in The Collective Future’s Blockchain Inclusive and Diverse Pledge.
Our entire site, including our digital asset report section, is independent and unpaid.
We do not EVER publish ads or sponsored stories.
If you are interested in submitting news or story ideas to us, or want to know more about our editorial policies, please read this page.
Over the last two years we have developed one of the most advanced research frameworks available – anywhere – for digital asset investing. You can learn more about SIMETRI here.
Our authors and staff often hold cryptocurrencies. Each member of our team has signed a comprehensive Personal Investment Policy that prohibits any kind of trading based on news to which they may be privy.
