Stay tuned for editorial team

We will soon be announcing the CryptoNewspeople China editorial team. Our editorial team will produce the highest quality journalism for our readers in China, holding steadfast to the values of editorial independence and responsibility to our readers.

CryptoNewspeople China is now our third base in Asia, following the establishment of CryptoNewspeople Japan in Tokyo in December 2017 and CryptoNewspeople Korea in August of this year. China has proved itself a hub for blockchain development, with the support of President Xi Jinping and a slew of blockchain-related patents filed with local regulators.

The country is maintaining a hardline stance toward crypto, as cryptocurrency trading is wholly banned in China. Meanwhile, the country has declared plans to issue its own digital currency to compete with the United States dollar in the global market. Our China-based team will work consistently to raise awareness in the region and deliver readers a clear insight into significant industry developments.
