I've been a full-time Bitcoin writer and researcher since early 2014.

I'm a writer who has been following Bitcoin since 2011. I've worked all over the Bitcoin media space -- from being editor-in-chief at Inside Bitcoins to contributing to Bitcoin Magazine on a regular basis. My work has also been featured in Business Insider, VICE Motherboard, and many other financial and tech media outlets. I'm mostly interested in the use of Bitcoin for transactions that would be censored by the traditional financial system (think darknet markets and ransomware) in addition to the use of bitcoin as an unseizable, digital store of value. Altcoins, appcoins, and ICOs don't make much sense to me. Find my daily Bitcoin newsletter, YouTube show, and podcast at kyletorpey.com. Disclosure: I hold some bitcoin.
