Purchase of CoinDesk News Site by Former NYSE President Causes Barry Silbert's Crypto Empire to Decline Further

Bullish Acquires CoinDesk

CoinDesk, the trending cryptocurrency news site, has been acquired by Bullish, a digital asset exchange headed by the former New York Stock Exchange president, Tom Farley. The site was purchased from Barry Silbert’s Digital currency Group, marking a whole lot of change in the cryptocurrency world. Despite the fact that the terms of the purchase have not been disclosed, it’s been reported to be an all-cash deal.

DCG, which originally acquired CoinDesk for $500,000 in 2016, had reportedly received unsolicited offers for more than $200 Million earlier this year. The acquisition process was challenging, with a $125 Million purchase agreement in July sliding through, resulting in layoffs of around 16% of CoinDesk’s staff.

Editorial Independence and History

The existing management team will remain in place at CoinDesk, with a new editorial committee headed by Matt Murray, formerly the editor-in-chief of The Wall Street Journal, put in place to secure journalistic independence. CoinDesk, launched in 2013, is well-known for breaking stories in the cryptocurrency universe and has faced challenges related to its reporting.

Legal Troubles and Financial Struggles

Along with the acquisition of CoinDesk, DCG, and its subsidiary Genesis, have faced legal and financial struggles. Genesis has filed for bankruptcy protection after suffering crippling losses from FTX and Three Arrows Capital (3AC), and is as of now the subject of a Securities and Exchange Commission charge alongside cryptocurrency exchange Gemini.

As CoinDesk continues  to navigate through this transition period, the new ownership and management structure may open up new doors and challenges for the media company in the ever-evolving world of cryptocurrency.
