CTO Balaji Srinivasan Leaves Coinbase

Coinbase CTO Balaji S. Srinivasan, who took his position at America’s top crypto exchange in April of last year after his company Earn.com was acquired by Coinbase, has announced on Twitter that he is leaving the company:

Earn.com is an app that allows users to earn (fractions of) Bitcoins, “…by replying to emails and completing tasks.”

According to his LinkedIn profile, Srinivasan was a former partner at venture-capital-firm-turned-investment-advisor Andreessen Horowitz.

Andreessen Horowitz holds large positions in both crypto assets and relevant firms.

Srinivasan also holds a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and a master’s in Chemical Engineering.

A spokesperson for Coinbase addressed Srinivasan’s departure:

“We are very grateful to Balaji for all of his contributions to Coinbase…His efforts over the past year have had a major impact on the trajectory of the company. He’s on to his next challenge and we wish him well.”

Srinivasan’s exit follows the recent departure from Coinbase of Dan Romero, the company’s Vice President, International, who was running Coinbase’s institutional trading desk.
