1. Coinbase Announces Its European Expansion Amid The Gloomy Market
Just last month, Coinbase revealed it would lay off 1,100 workers, or 18% of its workforce, in anticipation of a “extended” crypto winter.
The business has received criticism for withdrawing numerous job offers that it had pledged not to do so. (Coinbase eventually established a database to assist those potential employees in finding alternative employment.)
“During market downturns, the temptation can be to shy away from international expansion,” said the Friday blog post. “We first entered the UK and EU during the bear market in 2015, a move that paid off significantly during the bull run a few years from then. We’ll keep building around the world, and doing everything we can to grow the cryptoeconomy.”
