Coinbase loses its third executive in six months as Dan Romero resigns

Major US-based cryptocurrency exchange, Coinbase has lost its third senior executive as Dan Romero, it’s head of international business, announced his departure in a Medium post on Friday.

Romero, who joined Coinbase in 2014 when it was just 20 people, has announced he will be leaving the company at the end of the month. Though he didn’t provide a specific reason for his departure, he stated:

“Staying true to a mission often requires doing hard (or even unpopular) things. But I’ve been lucky to learn first-hand that it’s those hard things that often generate the most value.”

“I’m planning to take some time to figure out what’s next,” he added.

During his time at Coinbase, Romero has “worked on nearly every aspect” of the exchange, including banking partnerships and both customer and institutional businesses.

Despite Coinbase’s popularity, there have been several departures from the exchange recently. Christine Sandler, director of institutional sales at Coinbase left two weeks ago for Fidelity Investments. Then in February, director of data science and risk, Soups Ranjan left, as did senior compliance manager Vaishali Mehta.

Chepicap recently reported that Coinbase beat both twitter and JPMorgan in LinkedIn’s top 50 US employers list of 2019. The exchange provides its employees with unique benefits, such as offering up to $5,000 a year for treatment like egg-freezing.
