CNBC: Denver Post reporters leave behind hedge fund anxiety for new blockchain-based publication

Prominent Denver Post journalists, who recently left the embattled newspaper amid a battle with its hedge fund owners, are forming a start-up that’s embracing one of the hottest trends in technology: blockchain.

The Colorado Sun is launching as a reporter-owned, ad-free publication in partnership with Civil, a New York-based media company that’s applying cryptoeconomics to journalism. The online paper is sending out its inaugural newsletter, the Sunriser, on Wednesday afternoon, and the full site will be up and running in the coming months.
