Global Coin Research Founder Joyce Yang’s Ethics Statement

Here is a statement of my ethics and coverage policies. It is more than most of you want to know, but, in the age of suspicion of the media, I am laying it all out.

Integrity is absolutely critical as a writer and journalist. My readers expect that the essays and articles I write are formed by my own, independent opinions, and haven’t been purchased by any company or individual I cover.

My husband is a co-founder of a real-estate startup funded by NFX, Greylock, Bain Capital Ventures and NYCA.
