Write for Bankless
Knowledge in crypto doesn’t come from the few it comes from the many.
That’s why we’re opening up written submissions to everyone.
Want to write something for Bankless?
Submit an article to Bankless
Here’s the guidelines for a submission:
It has to be something you’d want to read
It can’t be shilly—education not bag pumping
It has to be original work
A published article reaches over 30k subscribers in the Bankless Nation and the top builders and crypto investors around the world. And if three of your articles get published we put you on the Writers Wall. 🏆
This is new wave clout chasing.
I want to submit my article.
One more thing. A submission is no guarantee your article will be published. We receive many submissions and few are published. Our role as curators is to find the best possible articles to help our readers go bankless.
Sometimes submissions aren’t a fit. Other times we pass on themes that don’t match our content schedule. You can always publish elsewhere. No hard feelings.
I understand…I still want to submit an article.
Ok. There are three types of articles you can submit.
A tactic explains how to do something in crypto
A writers wednesday op-ed or thought-piece
An analysis of a token or market segment
You’ll need to pick one. You can start writing by forking one of the Templates below:
Tactic Template: Project & Strategy Guides (1000+ words plus screenshots!)
Thought-piece Template: Op-Eds & Long form articles (1,200 - 1,800 words)
Token Analysis: Analysis & Research (1,200 - 1,800 words)
Once your article is written just send it in to email@example.com. If it’s a fit, we’ll reply to let you know and zero in on a publish date.
Though we can’t reply to them all…we read each and every submission.
No higher leverage activity
Many of my favorite people got their start in crypto by writing. There’s no higher leverage activity. Writing is how you build a network, propagate an idea, and launch a career. And bankless can supercharge the distribution.
Like anything else…the hardest part is to get started.
So get started!
