Coinbase has become the only cryptocurrency business to enter the list of LinkedIn’s most popular companies for 2019. Every year, LinkedIn announces a list of most popular companies in which people want to work. Out of 50, it ranked Coinbase at 35 this year.
LinkedIn ranks the companies on a number of basis like how many people are applying for jobs in a year, how many professionals are attracted to the company’s career page, if their employees are working with them for more than a year, and how many non-employees are showing interest in the company’s activities. For different countries, LinkedIn makes separate lists. As Coinbase is registered in the United States, it was mentioned in the US list.
Coinbase’s History with LinkedIn
Last year in September, Coinbase appeared in the list of LinkedIn’s top 50 startups people should work in giving fierce competition to Gemini, a digital currency exchange founded by Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss and popular payment network Ripple.
However, this year’s list is more shocking as Coinbase left behind investment banking giant JPMorgan which was ranked as the 6th largest bank in the world by S&P Global in 2018. Coinbase was ranked 35 in the list whereas JPMorgan came at 44. Not only this, Coinbase has also left Intel and Twitter behind in the list.
Coinbase knows, in order to preserve their staff, they have to do something above the company standard perks. They are giving $5,000 per year to their employees for treatments like egg-freezing which will allow women to focus on their career instead of their children for a while. It also had insurance for its crypto wallet which has a value of $225 billion earlier this month. All in all, Coinbase is leaving no stone unturned in becoming one of America’s leading business ventures.
