RELATED TOPICS​

Digital asset exchange, Bullish, led by Tom Farley, has announced that it has acquired CoinDesk, the integrated media, events and index platform for the future of finance, from Digital Currency Group (DCG). 

Bullish plans to invest in CoinDesk’s global expansion and the growth of the media, events, and indexing businesses. CoinDesk will continue to be led by Kevin Worth and the existing management team and operate as an independent subsidiary within Bullish. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“With its acclaimed editorial coverage, premier events and market-leading data and indices, CoinDesk continues to shape the global crypto and blockchain ecosystem,” says Tom Farley, CEO of Bullish. “Bullish will immediately inject capital into several of CoinDesk’s most exciting growth initiatives which will power the launch of new services, events and products. We also want to express our unwavering support for CoinDesk’s commitment to journalistic independence.”

“We are thrilled to partner with Bullish and begin the next phase of CoinDesk’s growth,” says Kevin Worth, CEO of CoinDesk. “With renewed momentum in the crypto economy as well as investment from Bullish, we look forward to capitalising on the many opportunities ahead for product development and expansion. I will always be grateful to Barry for taking a risk on CoinDesk and having the faith in me and our team to build a meaningful and everlasting business that will continue to support the future of digital assets.”

“I’m incredibly proud of CoinDesk’s growth and development over the last seven years, having transformed itself from a small blog about bitcoin into an award-winning media and events company and the most trusted information platform for digital assets,” says Barry Silbert, Founder & CEO of Digital Currency Group. “The team has built a multi-faceted global business with tremendous future potential and we look forward to watching them take CoinDesk to the next level in partnership with Bullish.”
