Although the path for cryptocurrencies in the second most populated country in the world isn’t clear yet, that’s not stopping global crypto companies from making a mark. Recently, the American crypto exchange Coinbase published a blog post authored by the company’s VP of Engineering and Site Lead in India, Pankaj Gupta. He penned down his views for the company to “establish and lead a new tech hub for Coinbase in India.” He also said:
“There’s never been a more exciting time for builders working in crypto. This is true worldwide, but especially in India which is seeing a boom in crypto-native talent and in creating and growing important crypto projects.“
While Gupta emphasized that the tech hub in the country regarding cryptocurrencies is still at an early stage, he gave heed to the fact that the response it has gathered is incredible. More importantly, he also stated that his company is in the process of “exploring startup acquisitions.“
As of now, the crypto exchange is hiring senior and junior roles “across product management, user experience, design, and program management.” They’re also in the process of introducing a new program called Cikka – ‘Coinbase India Sikka’. This program offers every employee a one-time $1,000 in crypto when they start with the organization.
