As a former senior editor at Forbes, she was the first mainstream reporter to cover crypto assets full-time.
While reporting her book, The Cryptopians: Idealism, Greed, Lies, and the Making of the First Big Cryptocurrency Craze (Public Affairs, 2022), she and her sources found evidence that appears to resolve the biggest whodunit in crypto: who was behind the 2016 DAO hack on Ethereum.
Laura is also host and producer of the popular blockchain and cryptocurrency podcast, “Unchained,” where she interviews the top minds from the crypto world. Laura is best known by her audience for her confidence in asking tough questions, and for her ability to distill complicated crypto concepts into an unbiased, accessible narrative, so that more people can understand the relevance of crypto and blockchain tech—and the degree to which it will revolutionize all of our lives in the near future.
