This week, the Cointelegraph team has been profoundly touched by the departure of its Chief Editor, George Gor. George has been a great editor, a friend and a mentor to many members of the Cointelegraph family and his decision to leave have left many of us with a void to fill.

During his time with Cointelegraph, George has greatly improved the publishing process, brought his unique expertise to increase reader loyalty and has always been a trusted friend, advisor and colleague. He was a source of inspiration to many of our authors and his contribution and he has helped our media resource secure an important position among Cryptocurrency and Fintech media outlets. His out of the box thinking, his charisma and his positive attitude will always be the heart and soul of our publishing business. Without his talents and effort, it is unlikely we would have become the media we are today.

Let us all take a moment to remember how George has influenced our lives as staff and readers and wish him success in his new endeavors!

George’s role and responsibilities will be taken over by Cyril Gilson, who has previously collaborated with Cointelegraph. He has pledged to keep George’s work going and to maintain the publishing standards George has set for our media.
