Coinbase will close its former San Francisco headquarters in 2022
Coinbase announced today that it will close its former San Francisco headquarters office through its official Coinbase news Twitter account. Since the Covid-19 epidemic last year, the company is transitioning from a traditional work model to the first remote company. This move is another action taken by the exchange to demonstrate its compromise in decentralization and point out that no position is more important than other positions. Coinbase said:
Closing our sci-fi office is an important step in ensuring that no office becomes an unofficial headquarters. This will mean that career success depends on ability and output, not geographic location.
However, the company will not let workers get into trouble, but is willing to open a small number of offices, if they choose to do so, workers all over the world can use them as a base.
This seems to mimic what Binance, the largest cryptocurrency exchange, did not long ago, when its CEO, Changpeng Zhao, announced that they did not have a headquarters because they did not have Bitcoin.

Brian Armstrong, the chief executive of the exchange, announced that this new approach has interesting advantages, including the ability to hire employees in cities and countries where there is no real foothold, and the ability to hire employees from all over the world instead of just in San Francisco gets interesting talent.
The top leaders of Armstrong and Coinbase set an example because none of them actually lived in the city or commuted to the office before the San Francisco headquarters. According to him:
This is the strongest measure we can take to prevent Coinbase from accidentally returning to office culture.
