In a significant development, CoinDesk was acquired by the Bullish group in November 2023. Bullish, a regulated institutional digital assets exchange, is majority owned by Block.one, a company with a diverse portfolio of interests in blockchain and digital asset businesses. Both groups also hold significant holdings of digital assets, including bitcoin. CoinDesk continues to operate as an independent subsidiary, with an editorial committee in the process of being formed to further support journalistic integrity. The committee will be chaired by a former editor-in-chief of The Wall Street Journal.
