Coinbase Sets the Record Straight About Its True Mission
Invoking the name of Breonna Taylor and the image of NBA Great Michael Jordan, Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong published an official company statement to make it clear there is no room for activism at Coinbase and urge employees to leave if they disagree.
Almost immediately, many blockchain executives lined up to applaud him. At first I wondered if there is a place for people like me in their exclusive crypto good ol boys club. But then I realized that there is no place for them in the cryptoeconomy. The marketplace is filled with savvy consumers who are mission focused when it comes to their discretionary spending.
Thank you for your message Brian Armstrong and others like you.
The marketplace will respond in kind!
