Decrypt was launched in 2018 with a straightforward goal in mind: to explain the decentralised web. Whether it's trustless networks, privacy coins, or oracles, we endeavour to create unique coverage of the major topics, insightful profiles on the industry's movers and shakers, as well as entertaining instructional content to connect the dots.
Decrypt is supported by ConsenSys, a New York-based incubator, but we are editorially and technologically autonomous. Our goal is to showcase what actually important to our readers while also offering a toolset to help them comprehend the fundamentals. We're a map for Web3 doers, to assist them traverse the area and find the knowledge and tools they'll need to influence the industry. We are a newsroom of professional journalists, with a sophisticated perspective and desire to bring transparency and accountability to the space. We also want to provide a platform for “good actors” who are pioneering best business practices, and profile entrepreneurs and projects that seek positive social impact.
Every day, the technology that underpins Web3 and the decentralised internet becomes more difficult to comprehend. We only tell stories that matter to our audience. Those articles must be engaging, have a compelling storyline, boost our readers' comprehension of the decentralised web, and, most importantly, assist them in making smarter decisions. We plan to remain critical and open-minded as we follow the tale of what's driving the emergence of the decentralised web. Even the best-intentioned technologies can be abused, as we all know. We want to highlight what's working while also raising awareness about scams, frauds, and poor technologies.
