But now they are turning down people as their systems and process aren’t in place making it difficult to do business.


Coinbase, because of its patients and strong fundamentals, has stood ground since 2012 irrespective of the flow of the tides was. And now when the crypto market is at its, getting itself ready for the next bull phase as and when it returns. The company has put in action a plan to hire people and double its headcount from around 250 to 500 people in the coming time. Which means So there are a lot of new people at Coinbase managing a new set of business and operation making Coinbase stronger. This would also help Coinbase get things in place and capitalize on opportunities that it missed out in last bull cycle of Cryptomarkets.

Will Coinbase continue its dominance in the industry of crypto exchanges in the future? Do let us know your views on the same.
