Crypto news site The Block hires news editor, chief revenue officer
Crypto news site The Block has hired a chief revenue officer previously with Politico and a news editor.
The Block named former Politico chief revenue officer Bobby Moran as its first chief revenue officer, while veteran crypto journalist Tim Copeland joined as news editor.
Moran will lead monetization efforts across The Block’s expanding suite of subscription products, sponsorships and services. Moran oversaw Politico’s growth across its B2B subscription and sponsorship business lines and was responsible for managing and growing Politico Pro into a $60M+ subscription business during his tenure.
Copeland will focus on covering the most critical developments in the crypto space as well as increasing reader engagement across The Block’s editorial suite. Prior to joining The Block, he was instrumental in building one of the leading crypto media brands in the space, Decrypt, a ConsenSys subsidiary.
The Block, which was founded in April 2018, draws in more than 3 million monthly readers and counts financial institutions, sovereign wealth funds, billion-dollar asset managers and technology majors among its readers.
