Previously on Coinbase
Two years ago, there was an unfortunate event at Coinbase. The crypto exchange announced losing 5% of its employees because Coinbase decided to remain apolitical. Since then, the community has been watching Coinbase and seeing its political stance.
However, in a recent blog post, Coinbase seems to change its views on politics. Shirzad even mentioned that Coinbase will get involved in the political process if it impacts its mission.
Coinbase stated, “We don’t regularly talk about politics here at Coinbase, but we’ve always said that we will engage in the political process at moments when it relates to our mission of increasing economic freedom in the world.”
Currently, the community is waiting to see more updates from Coinbase.
