Letter from the Director
CCN – Capital & Celeb News, also known as CCN, CCN.com, and CCN Markets, was founded in the summer of 2013 in Norway by serial entrepreneur Jonas Borchgrevink as CryptoCoinsNews. Since then, we have expanded into more topics and stopped our cryptocurrency reportage as the founder did not want to fuel a toxic environment. We took our final name CCN – Capital & Celeb News on October 1st, 2020.
In 2018 we brought in new expertise and highly qualified journalists to cover the categories:
- Financial Markets
We do not have any political agenda. However, we do allow Op-Eds and opinions on CCN.com, covering a range of topics and author perspectives.
Who owns CCN.com?
CCN – Capital & Celeb News is a subdivision of Hawkfish AS. Sister-site: Hacked – Protection against Online Abuse and Cybercrime
We consider ourselves as a global news organization, not explicitly affiliated with Norway. Our main audiences are located in the U.S. and U.K.
