On 27th April, Coinbase officially announced that the former founders of Bumpers, Ian Ownbey and Jacob Thornton, have joined Coinbase. The engineers founded Bumpers in 2015, which was an app that allowed users to make a podcast using their mobile’s microphones. It was shut down due to lack of growth and funding.
@iano and @fat, formerly founders of Bumpers, have joined Coinbase. They’re bringing deep experience in consumer products and engineering to our team and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Welcome!”
Headquartered in San Francisco, Coinbase is a crypto exchange platform that allows users from 32 countries to exchange cryptocurrencies with traditional currencies. Although it has all the major coins including Bitcoin, LiteCoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, and Ethereum Classic listed on the exchange, people are outraged as it refuses to add XRP to its exchange.
Coinbase recently hired its news Chief Financial Officer, Alesia Haas, who brought her deep financial services experience to the growing company. Balaji Srinivasan, one of the technology industry’s few true originalists, joined as the new Chief Technology Officer.
Srinivasan was the co-founder and CEO of Earn, which was acquired by Coinbase earlier this month and as a part of the acquisition, he was welcomed into Coinbase.
A market follower commented:
“Is this going to help you guys finally add XRP? I would like to avoid international wires. But you guys only offer Bitcoin, some of its copies and ETH. That really isn’t much to choose from and doesn’t even include the 3rd largest coin in crypto.”
A Twitter user commented:
“News flash! Coinbase has hired a new janitor. He’ll make sure to keep those servers and useless customer service phones and keyboards well dusted.”
Pual Hubert, a crypto enthusiast tweeted:
“Welcome to a winning team.We have “Fun” creating extra income.”
