Coindesk’s De named crypto reporter of the year
Coindesk reporter Nikhilesh De has been named reporter of the year by the Association of Cryptocurrency Journalists and Researchers.
He has been at Coindesk since September 2017.
“Nik is thorough and precise on a very important beat that can be tricky to get right. Regulation is becoming one of the biggest stories in the industry,” said Daniel Roberts of Decrypt.
De opted to donate his prize money to create three scholarship ACJR memberships for students and low-income researchers.
Attorney Grant Gulovsen, an ACJR associate member, commented on the quality of De’s work, saying, “Nik consistently provides some of the most thorough and objective coverage of everything that happens in the legal/regulatory space surrounding crypto.”
De is a graduate of Rutgers Univesity-New Brunswick.
