The crypto industry unicorn Coinbase has aggressive growth plans for its newly opened New York office, which caters to institutional clients.

The digital asset exchange plans to expand the operation to 150 employees next year, от 20 В данный момент. According to the company, the slump in cryptocurrency prices this year has not quelled institutional demand for this asset class.

When we saw the market begin to correct, which we all expected, institutions didn’t lose interest,” Adam White, general manager of Coinbase Institutional, told CoinDesk. “It was exactly the opposite.

He added:

They look at it as an opportunity to enter when things are not too frothy.

Many of the local staff members were hired away from traditional financial institutions such as the New York Stock Exchange, Barclays, и Citigroup.

Нью-Йорк “is an incredibly deep pool of talent,” White said during an event Thursday celebrating the opening of its first permanent location in the city (it previously had employees working out of a WeWork there).

We have to create a bridge between financial services and technology,” he went on. “Для того, чтобы сделать это, we need to pull from some of the best and brightest minds that have worked their whole careers in other kinds of traditional financial firms.

Institutional and retail

To make corporate clients comfortable when they visit, the office has a security staff comparable to the NYSE’s, according to Coinbase’s head of institutional sales, Christine Sandler, who previously worked at the Big Board.

И все еще, Sandler said Coinbase’s institutional custody, asset management, and trading services shouldn’t be seen as conflicting with its previous focus on retail investors. Иначе, in her mind, institutional distribution is the key to mainstream adoption.

We want to partner with appropriate institutions to help the whole ecosystem grow,” she told CoinDesk. “It’s not ‘institutional or retail,’ because a lot of these institutions will be distributors.

Отступив, Coinbase as a company has been on a hiring spree all through the 2018 Медвежий рынок, и в настоящее время имеет более 500 сотрудников по всему миру. And New York isn’t the only new office attracting institutional clients and recruits.

Coinbase is looking tolight up more countries and more fiat railswith an eye on expansion in Asia and Latin Americapretty quickly,” Белый сказал. Coinbase already started establishing an office in Tokyo this summer, hiring a small team and applying for a Financial Services Agency certification in Japan.

We’re committed to not being a U.S. Компания,” Белый сказал.
