About Us

Letter from the Director

CCN.com, also known as CCN Markets, was founded in the summer of 2013 in Norway by serial entrepreneur Jonas Borchgrevink as “CryptoCoinsNews.com”. Although bitcoin gained plenty of coverage in mainstream media, there were few crypto-focused online publications at the time. CryptoCoinsNews quickly became one of the largest and most trusted cryptocurrency news outlets, and the team behind it expanded rapidly.

In 2017, CCN Markets received an offer to purchase CCN.com. We accepted the offer and moved our entire site from CryptoCoinsNews.com to CCN.com by the fall of 2017.

By the end of 2018, CCN Markets became a part of the Norwegian media company “Hawkfish AS” with business address Drengsrudhagen 6, 1385 Asker, Norway. However, most of our employees and contractors are based in the United States, Europe, and Asia. We consider ourselves as a global news organization, not affiliated with Norway.

In 2018 we brought in new expertise and highly qualified journalists to cover a wide range of categories from:

  • Financial Markets
  • U.S. Business
  • Celebrities
  • Gaming
  • Sports
  • Entertainment
  • Technology

We do not have any political agenda. We do allow Op-Eds and opinions on CCN Markets covering a range of topics and author perspectives. Readers are invited to write their own opinions or articles and have them published as Guest Contributions. Read more about how to publish Guest Contributions here.
