Coinbase fires ex-hacking team employees following uproar

posted 17 days 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.”
