A strong need for more serious media appeared on the scene ...
The idea to launch a crypto portal came up about a year ago. At that time, the world around cryptocurrencies was at a stage of excess. The easy access to capital via ICOs had attracted many (bad) actors, that presented none or just poorly matured projects to the investor. The reporting on these projects was, therefore, anything but objective and demonstrated that more serious media should appear on the scene.
At this point in time, we started to actively share the idea of a professional medium with our colleagues. We ran into open doors. The result is a multifaceted team that now stands behind the Crypto Valley Journal. It is composed of people from the fields of journalism, blockchain development, finance, legal services as well as marketing experts. In summary, we are all crypto enthusiasts and like entrepreneurship.

It was able to draw on the experience it had already gained with the first companies in the crypto valley in 2013. In the last two years, the whole area has become more mature.
