Coinbase’s ups and downs this year
This week we have Coinbase grow over 50% to break above $90 a share. end of may had registered 50 dollars per share, so growth is positive. But don’t forget that this firm was $200 a share at the beginning of the year.
All this has led to a serious problem for the workers (or former workers) of the firm. In June, the firm fired more than 1,000 workers via email, 18% of its workforce, and with this trend that we are seeing lately of companies announcing massive layoffs.
A few days before this dismissal we published how Coinbase was terminating jobs for people who had not yet started. This led to people who had already left their jobs or had gotten a visa to move out of the country, or even people who had already moved out of town, to start working at Coinbase soon, found themselves stranded, jobless, just a few days before starting at the company’s offices.
