Protocol is seeking a reporter who can break news and tell original, inside stories about the world of cryptocurrency.
Once pitched as a revolutionary force replacing the world of finance, cryptocurrencies are increasingly finding a place alongside established money mechanisms. Coinbase going public, Visa testing stablecoins for transactions, and Robinhood trading Dogecoin alongside GameStop are all signs of this new accommodation. Regulators, too, are shifting from treating crypto as a delicate new idea to incubate to a force that must be reckoned with. As the fintech and crypto industries increasingly merge, Protocol will give business leaders the news and information they need to navigate the quickly changing landscape.
What You’ll Need:
We’re not looking for reporters to summarize what others have already reported; we’re looking for reporters who can consistently break news that other reporters have to follow. Our ideal candidates are smart, well-sourced and have a knack for finding out what’s happening and explaining what it means and why it matters to a savvy and knowledgeable audience.
The strongest candidates will be able to knock off a one-paragraph, plain-English explanation of DeFi, converse comfortably with a dapp developer and a banking regulator in the same day, and identify trends deep in the crypto world that will have large impacts outside that realm.
We prefer candidates in the San Francisco, New York and Washington, D.C., areas but are open to other locations as well.
