The U.S. headquartered bitcoin and cryptocurrency exchange company Coinbase announced today an expansion within Europe opening a new Dublin office. The new Coinbase Dublin team will compliment Coinbase operations in London and host a mixture of new business-related functions, including roles the company is hiring for right now.
Tina Bhatnagar VP, Operations and Technology at Coinbase reported that the number of customers in the European Union (EU) grew faster than any other market in 2017. She said that Coinbase had explored a variety of cities across the EU, but Dublin was choice in the end.
“Expanding our presence in Dublin is one more step along our journey to ensure Coinbase is viewed as a trusted and easy-to-use cryptocurrency platform in Europe. It’s exciting to continue encountering people all over the world who are eager to help us unlock the power of cryptocurrency and accelerate its adoption worldwide. We look forward to harnessing Ireland’s entrepreneurial spirit and contributing to the growth of the Irish technology sector.”
