Recently, Coinbase has announced that it is setting up a business presence in India, where cryptocurrency remains shrouded in controversies. However, it hasn’t yet gotten approval from the government.
“New hires in India, Canada, and elsewhere will have the option to work across various locations in their country of hire. We expect to open a physical office, initially in Hyderabad, for Indian employees.”
In addition, Gupta mentioned that Coinbase’s idea is to hire hundreds of employees, across all levels in Engineering, Product Management, and User Experience in the next 1-2 years to develop a complete technology hub.
More so, Coinbase is creative at the frontier of crypto and blockchains. Notable, one of the most exciting trends in the world today. In Gupta’s conversations with the Coinbase executive leadership, it made clear that this is a mission-focused firm for builders like him.
Furthermore, Coinbase Co-Founder Fred Ehrsam, who exited the firm in 2017, had also backed cryptocurrency investment firm CoinSwitch Kuber through his investment firm Paradigm.
