We are committed to providing accurate, fair, objective, and responsible reporting. This applies whether we are surfacing new news or reviewing and corroborating information from other sources.
Reporting can have a negative impact on company and individual reputations. Our journalists must be patient and persistent in seeking comments from those who are reporting. Coin Culture is always open to hearing from a variety of informed perspectives.
All facts in published articles will have errors corrected immediately upon discovery. Any corrections or amendments to articles will be noted at the bottom. If the article’s central idea requires a correction, it will be shared at the top of the article.
Journalists and editors may not accept payments from individuals or companies for reporting or preferential treatment. Coin Culture does not allow journalists to accept gifts from individuals or companies that Coin Culture covers.
Opinion articles are written by staff or outside contributors and clearly marked as such.
We do not reveal the identities or contact information of anonymous sources, as we do with all reliable media outlets. This is to avoid retaliation by the powerful. We are careful not to rely on anonymous sources. Stories that are sourced anonymously must be confirmed by at least one source who has firsthand knowledge, but more depending on the story’s sensitivity.
We will also respect the anonymity of trustworthy sources with established reputations within the crypto community through their online accounts. Prominent software developers and other prominent figures who don’t give their legal names are considered to have a reputation for being honest. They attach their words to well-known pseudonyms. This attachment can be sufficient to warrant a certain degree of accountability in many cases. We will not disclose anyone’s identity without their consent, unless there is an overwhelming public interest. We oppose any model of journalism that would cause harm to the careers or lives of innocent, obscure people just for clicks or moral points.
