The company also highlighted that it would need more hands to help it build its Coinbase Wallet and build a better user experience for its rising number of users.
Coinbase, one of the world’s leading crypto exchanges, is looking to increase the number of its workers and has concluded plans to hire at least 2000 new employees before the end of the current year. This was revealed via a blog post earlier today.
Coinbase to Hire New Specialists
According to the exchange, the new employees would be distributed to the company’s product, engineering, and product departments.
The exchange continued that the product opportunities in the emerging Web 3, NFT, and Metaverse space opened up these new vacancies requiring more expertise.
“We see enormous product opportunities ahead for the future of the Web3. We believe our industry is in its infancy and that building onramps for individuals to participate is critical to driving the next generation use of crypto,” wrote he.
Aside from this, the company also highlighted that it would need more hands to help it build its Coinbase Wallet and build a better user experience for its rising number of users.
Coinbase began operation in 2012 and has since gone on to cement itself as the largest crypto exchange in the United States. The Brian Armstrong-led exchange became the first crypto company to go public last year, and since then, other crypto-related companies have shown their willingness to copy the firm.
Coinbase Gives Warning about Its Giveaway
Coinbase was one of the crypto companies that graced the Super Bowl match with its ad on Sunday. The highly anticipated ad would gift new users $15 worth of Bitcoin for signing up on the crypto platform.
While the ad generated a lot of buzz and traffic – there are reports that the exchange had around 20 million hits on its landing page immediately after the ad – that temporarily shut down its websites, the exchange has come out to warn users to be careful of bad actors who might want to take advantage of the giveaway.
A quick note about security because it’s super important to us …
The only way to be eligible for our $15 BTC giveaway is to sign up for a Coinbase account by following this link → https://t.co/fKHisXZJJc
If it didn’t come from us it could be a scam.

According to the tweet released to this effect, the exchange reiterated that the only way an individual could qualify for the giveaway was to sign up for a Coinbase account using the specified link while also adding that “if it didn’t come from us it could be a scam.”
Coinbase warning is coming on the back of the number of ingenious ways scammers try to defraud unsuspecting individuals of their money. The crypto space is replete with several giveaway scams where the bad actors promise to double whatever amount of digital assets were sent to them by their victims.
Usually, these scammers tend to impersonate popular figures in the crypto space like Michael Saylor, Elon Musk, and others.
