Moreover, along with Earn.com acquisition, Coinbase also welcomed Earn’s co-founder and CEO, Balaji Srinivasan, who will join Coinbase as the company’s first Chief Technology Officer (CTO).

Over the last several years, the primary way most people have obtained cryptocurrency is through buying it, with many of these transactions facilitated by Coinbase. With this acquisition, we allow users to also earn crypto by doing things they already know how to do — like replying to emails and filling out surveys.

For the users of Earn.com, everything will continue as before in the short term, with one exception as Earn.com has put the token launch on the back burner and plans to focus on integrating with Coinbase’s infrastructure and scaling up the service.
