The world economy is going through one of the toughest times in history, with what threatens to be the strongest economic recession since the crash of 29, just around the corner. However, in the midst of the economic problems the world is struggling with, there are still companies accelerating the pace. So today we ask ourselves: Why is Coinbase hiring so many people before Bitcoin’s Halving?
Coinbase: Halving will be good for Bitcoin
The state of the world economy. The Coronavirus crisis has come to change everything, even in companies like Coinbase. Since the virus born in the city of Wuhan reached the Western world, most countries in the world have had to take tough measures to protect the health of their citizens. The most important of these measures is to order a quarantine for most of its inhabitants.
This, of course, has important economic consequences. By paralyzing a large part of the productive and commercial sector, in view of the impossibility for workers to go to work.
This is without counting the changes in the consumption model, which is also altered in this situation, when the inhabitants focus more on basic products and savings.
All this is already generating multi-million dollar losses in several of the world’s largest companies. Added to a bleak prognosis for the economy, a contraction in global GDP is expected. Something that has brought entire sectors of the economy to their knees. But not to Blockchain technology, which remains as active as ever, as Coinbase’s hiring shows.

This would mean significant gains for all those who, like Coinbase, have bet on Bitcoin over the years.
Therefore, they are preparing for an expansion in the size of the crypto market, and therefore in the activity of their platform. This is why Coinbase is hiring dozens of new employees, following the route of other optimistic crypto companies such as Binance and Kraken, which are preparing for a real boom in Blockchain technology.
If the predictions of these platforms are correct, we could witness years of expansion within the Blockchain technology sector. Driven not only by the characteristics of BTC, but also by the COVID-19 crisis and its effects on the traditional economy.
