Frank Chaparro Moves from Business Insider to Join The Block

Beginning September 24, 2018, Frank will shift his emphasis from reporting on general financial articles to reporting on cryptocurrency full-time at his new role.

The diverse group of guests will also shed light on critical themes and topics within the blockchain arena. In the future, Chaparro will develop video content for broader consumption and for reaching a wider audience.
