Coinbase fires ex-hacking team employees following uproar

posted 3 months ago
Coinbase is parting ways with several employees from Neutrino following widespread criticism over the crypto exchange’s acquisition of the blockchain analytics firm. CEO Brian Armstrong said Coinbase & Neutrino decided they will let go Neutrino employees who previously worked for Hacking Team.

Since then, a campaign encouraging Coinbase users to delete their accounts has been raging on Twitter because Neutrino’s top management had led projects for Hacking Team, a startup that aided governments known for human rights abuses. Armstrong said “We had a gap in our diligence process.”
