Crypto Briefing Continues Commitment to Readers
Han Kao, the founder of Crypto Briefing, is stepping down from his role as CEO. The board of directors appointed Mitchell Moos, the former editor-in-chief, to take his place; Liam Kelly will ascend to the role of editor-in-chief.
“I’m confident that Mitchell will continue leading Crypto Briefing in a way that places our readers and subscribers first. The publication is in good hands,” said Kao.
“It’s more important than ever that Crypto Briefing make progress towards its mission of helping people make informed crypto investment decisions,” said Mitchell Moos. “As CEO, I will double-down on our commitment to readers.”
Han Kao will move on to manage Sanctor Capital, a crypto-focused venture fund. Although he will remain the largest shareholder in Crypto Briefing, he will no longer be involved in the day-to-day operations.
“It’s my twentieth year as a serial entrepreneur. Sharing the lessons I’ve learned with other entrepreneurs is the highest impact thing I could be doing right now,” Kao added. “That’s why I’m launching an early-stage crypto investment fund—to help these founders make their visions a reality.”
Crypto Briefing was founded in 2017 as an altcoin-focused industry publication. It quickly gained a following by publishing ICO reviews, as well as project code reviews by Andre Cronje, now the founder of Yearn Finance.
During that time, the industry was saturated with scams and inflated promises from cryptocurrency projects. Crypto Briefing made a name for itself by forgoing advertising dollars to keep its reviews completely unbiased.
Today, Crypto Briefing empowers nearly a million people who follow our publication and our research subscription, SIMETRI, to make better-informed investment decisions about cryptocurrency.
“I want to thank previous team members, Jon Rice, Andre Cronje, and Ilya Abugov, who helped bring Crypto Briefing where it is today,” said Kao. “I am excited for the next chapter of Crypto Briefing under the leadership of Mitchel Moos and Liam Kelly.”
