Around September 2017, Kristina was contacted by a former colleague who inquired if she knew anyone interested in joining Cointelegraph. Although she didn't have a person in mind, Kristina decided to take a chance and put herself out to the blockchain/crypto space for the first time. 
"I've heard about blockchain as a technology but I didn't really dive into it but it was something that interested me. I think it was September 2017, I was contacted by my colleague from my previous journalistic experience who told me whether I know someone who would be interested in joining Cointelegraph and I was like well you know what I'm not sure that I know someone but I would be happy to try, like this is something that definitely is interesting"
