Decrypt is a next-generation media company and creative studio positioned at the intersection of emerging technology, alternative finance, and culture. Our day-to-day operations are powered by AI and Web3.

Decrypt was founded in 2018 with a simple mission: to demystify the decentralized web. As the Web3 industry’s impact has grown, so has our coverage. Today, we exist to capture compelling narratives that span technology’s reach into every facet of life. 

We’re passionate about the interplay between technology and culture. This dynamic space is filled with untold stories. We’re here to tell them, and create a few of our own.

Our mission is to inform about current events, educate about emerging technology, and empower those with a creative vision to bring it to life.

1.Simplify, simplify, simplify.

Emerging technology gets harder to understand every day. Our mission, first and foremost, is to fight against making things needlessly complicated. We want to make this world easy to understand.

2.Focus on storytelling.

We only tell stories that are important to our readers. Those stories must engage our readers, offer a compelling narrative, increase their understanding of complex topics, and above all else help them make better decisions.

3.Tell the truth.

As we follow the story of what’s driving the evolution of technology, we intend to be skeptical and clear eyed. We know full well that even the best-intentioned tech can be misused. We want to celebrate the things that are working, while sounding the alarm about scams, frauds, and bad technology.

4. Incorporate Web3 and AI.

We practice what we preach, and use both Web3 and AI technologies as part of our daily work. Whether that’s dapps, building decentralized functionality into our site, or creating AI editorial assistants, we believe the tech we write about needs to be a part of our DNA.
