About Event

This is the first edition of ACJR’s Off the Record series, a peer-to-peer method for journalists to get up to speed on all things crypto.

In this session, we’re going to look at how to cover the white-hot Coinbase listing, which happens next week. We’ll look at angles from crypto proxy-stocks to the history of centralised exchanges and Coinbase’s major global rivals.

Join colleagues from: Fortune, Forbes, Decrypt, Cointelegraph, the New York Times, CoinDesk, Quartz and more.

Welcome from Joon Ian Wong, ACJR co-president.

10-minute talk by Jeff John Roberts, executive editor at Decrypt and author of the definitive book on Coinbase, ‘Kings of Crypto’ will give a talk on how he’s covered the company.

Then we have 30-minute open Q&A with a panel of reporters and researchers who can answer your questions on how to cover Coinbase and crypto exchanges in general.

  • Jeff John Roberts, executive editor at Decrypt / @jeffjohnroberts

  • Ian Allison, senior reporter at CoinDesk / @ianallison123

  • Mario Gabriele, The Generalist / @mariodgabriele (he also tokenised his analysis on Coinbase’s S-1)

  • Clara Medalie, business development and strategy at Kaiko / @clara_medalie

This whole session really is off the record, so it’s not recorded and we ask attendees to abide by Chatham House rules.

This event is open to journalists and researchers only.
