On our mission to build the future of money, it’s critical that we build a safe and reliable platform for our customers to buy, sell, and store cryptocurrency. To that end, we are excited to announce that we are opening an office in Chicago — one of the world’s major financial centers. Our Chicago office will serve as an engineering hub and complement our existing office in Portland, Oregon and our Headquarters in New York City.

Chicago is the birthplace of commodities markets. Beginning in the late 19th century, farmers came to the Windy City to sell or lock in prices for their crop. Over the past 150 years, Chicago has grown into a financial powerhouse that is tightly linked to Wall Street and the global financial system at large. This legacy makes it a great home to build the future of money because it has an incredible pool of talented engineers who understand the unique skills and expertise necessary to build best-in class exchange infrastructure that meets the standards established by traditional financial markets.

The Chicago office will help us continue to scale for the future and continue to build on our existing data centers and direct connectivity. If you are interested in joining our Chicago office, please email us at and look out for openings on our Careers page.

Since May, we’ve seen bitcoin increase in value and this week it surpassed its 17-month high. Trading volumes across the industry and mainstream interest in cryptocurrency are on the rise. The time has never been more right to double-down on our mission to build safe and reliable institutional-grade infrastructure.

Onward and Upward,
