Joyce’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.

Writing ethics:

TechCrunch: All writing that has been published under TechCrunch is my own, independent, non-sponsored work and analysis. I will not write about companies that I formally directly advise or consult. I will not write about any companies who are in consulting with Block72 at the time of publication. 

Global Coin Research: All writing that has been published under Global Coin Research is our own, independent, non-sponsored, work, unless explicitly stated that it’s sponsored, contribution or a collaboration. I might write about companies that I advise or consult, and in the case of such, I will disclose that in the post or in writing.

[updated 1/23/19- 5/1/2019] GCR was previously in a consulting contract with Tocqueville Group, a company focused on Tezos.

[updated 7/1/19] GCR is currently in a consulting contract with Starkware.

[updated 9/2/19] GCR currently in a consulting contract with Certora.

Investments and personal holdings: Outside of typical employer equity from my former and current employer, I own largely ETFs and some large-cap tech stocks. In Crypto, I own Bitcoin and Ethereum, enough to gain an understanding, not enough to change a life.

[updated 7/1/19] I am now an investor in NEAR Protocol.
