Bringing a unique understanding of the global, business and technology sides of the blockchain industry, Joyce Yang has emerged as one of the global cryptocurrency industry’s leading writers, thinkers and commentators, and is the founder, CEO and editor-in-chief of Global Coin Research (GCR), which began from Joyce’s home in 2017 as a passion project.
From the start, GCR sparked a new kind of global dialogue, exploring the key drivers of an industry undergoing unprecedented change. Global exchanges and new mining machines were about to explode into the cryptocurrency landscape, and new markets in China, Singapore and Vietnam were rapidly rising in importance. The blockchain industry in Asia was emerging as a force in popular culture and there was much to analyze, dissect and explore. From its humble beginnings as a blog, today BoF has grown into the pre-eminent platform for opening, informing and connecting the global cryptocurrency and blockchain community.
In 2017, after financing GCR independently, Joyce raised a seed funding round and participated in the prestigious The Information Accelerator based out of Silicon Valley.
Formerly a Techcrunch reporter, Joyce was the first reporter to write about Thailand’s unique crypto and blockchain opportunities in the mainstream media, and she also was the first to uncover the story about the Bitcoin girl in China that many other media sites later covered.
Joyce Yang graduated from Harvard University and formerly spent over 5 years in investment banking in the US and China. She is now also an advisor and investor to many startups in the space.
