About Us


You’re on a journey to understand crypto. And we’re right there with you.

Milk Road is hoping to make crypto a little less confusing. We’re creating tools, calculators, and data-driven content to help you make sense of cryptocurrency while capitalizing on it in the process.

Thanks for joining us.

The Milk Road Team.

About Us

Milk Road started as a newsletter to explain crypto in plain English, founded by Shaan Puri and Ben Levy. It’s the smart, no-BS friend who distills the complexities of crypto into entertaining bite-sized news. We’ll keep you up to date on what’s what in the crypto world, with a few laughs and Milky memes along the way.

People seem to like us, and we’ve been growing pretty fast. In fact, we already have over 250,000 readers in our first year. We needed backup, so we partnered with Bitfo, a crypto media brand with a similar vision as ours - to create a “source of truth” for the crypto-curious.

Our newsletter team brings the jokes and news, while the Bitfo crew brings crypto investing tools and data-driven content. Now we’re kind of like Batman and Robin, peanut butter and jelly - you get the point. We’ve combined forces to build a bigger, better Milk Road, and we’re hoping you’ll dig it.
