Today I joined Miami Mayor Francis Suarez to announce that Blockchain.com is the first global crypto company to officially move its US HQ from New York City to Miami. It’s hard to ignore the “Miami Movement” that has attracted attention, talent, and funding — and we want to participate in a big way.
Why move our U.S. HQ? First, Miami a prime location for Blockchain.com as the city has a welcoming regulatory environment that will help fuel crypto innovation. Next, Mayor Suarez has been a vocal proponent for tech investment in the region, even pushing for the state’s first financial regulations for cryptocurrency. We commend him for those efforts, and for seeing the true potential that crypto has to connect the world to the future of finance. Finally, as one of the leading financial centers for Latin America, Miami serves as an ideal location for recruiting.
Speaking of recruiting, we have aggressive plans for the Miami job market. By the end of this year, we plan to hire 100 full-time employees. And next year alone, we plan to hire another 200. Visit our jobs page to see our openings, including engineering, design, product, financial operations, customer support, and marketing.
To truly join the fabric of Miami’s business community, we also have plans to give back. We’ll be making investments to support the local STEM community via education programming. Stay tuned for more details.
Couldn’t be more excited to be here in Miami and look forward to building the future of finance together.
