Our priorities

Be the most trusted

We filter all decisions through the question: "Will this make Coinbase the most trusted name in our space?" Trust is the sum of every customer interaction. It requires world-class security, compliance, technology, support, design, and more.

Be the easiest to use

Digital currency is a powerful technology — but its benefits are limited by how easy it is for people to use. We excel at making great products that bring the benefits of digital currency to everyone.
